FRANK TILLI was born in Montreal and is of Italian descent. He is the youngest of 6 children and grew up in a musical neighborhood. He started writing compositions and original songs when he was only 13. While he’s held many different jobs in his life, his one true passion is music.
A co-worker encouraged Frank to try the harmonica, stating that “you will either get it or you won’t”. Frank took to it naturally and today incorporates the harmonica into his music alongside vocals and guitar.
Frank writes and composes all of his own music which is then produced by George Carter Jr. His musical influences include Elvis, KISS, Deep Purple, The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. He considers Keith Richards and Mick Jagger to be his musical mentors.

 

In February of 1989 he was performing at The Decibal in downtown Montreal when he was approached by Polish producer John Gravel. Impressed, Gravel invited Frank and his band to perform in Warsaw in July and August of 1990, courtesy of the Ministry of Culture of Poland. They played four gigs in Warsaw before returning to Montreal, lending a hand to changing the music culture.
Encouraged by the music scene in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Frank left Montreal and joined his friend and producer George Carter Jr. on the East Coast. He joined “The George Carter Jr. Band” singing lead vocals and playing the harmonica. Together they have played in numerous venues across Nova Scotia including the Halifax Jazz Festival, Smoking Blues Festival, and the Coal Shed Music Festival, among others.
Frank’s desire now is to present his original music to a wider audience on an international level.

Bird On A Wire

Quotes: 
The vocals dance through your head as a journey through an enchanted dreamscape of love, loss, pain, anger and joy like only a true legend would know how to deliver. Sometimes a crooner in the classic style, at times rough and raspy and others so subtle you can almost hear a secret you’re not supposed to know! I have not been this surprised by or an artist since we started this web magazine over five years ago." -- Bruce J. Maier, Damn Good Tunes

“Jon's  voice and harmonica convey an entire life dedicated to the music where nothing is superficial, nothing is too much. This album is terrific, track after track it puts you directly in the soul of the blues, and the life of a human being.. SO that's a big YES. I recommend this piece of art to everybody.

Christelle Berthon, Paris, France, internationally acclaimed harmonica artist.
 

"Jon's music draws on so many sources: not just the country and urban blues harp masters who were his first inspiration, but torch singing, fast folk, big band swing, and a vein of New Age mysti-cism that challenges, inspires, and comforts in the face of a cold, hard world. This is sweet stuff-- rough and smooth, hot and cool, edgy and friendly, with inspired harp stylings all the way through. Gindick is dancing his way past the grave, leading the way once again."

Adam Gussow, Oxford,Mississippi, world-famous harmonica artist for Satan and Adam, author of “Mr. Satan’s Ap-prentice,” “Journeyman’s Road” and other blues memoirs.

Peter Anderson

Peter started playing guitar when in high school after being involved with school music productions. His involvement was so enthusiastic that teachers wrote notes home declaring that if Peter didn't change focus to something other than music for his written reports, he would never get anywhere in life!

Starting off immediately performing in public at various events, he quickly learned how to engage an audience. Over the years, vocals became the main focus over rhythm guitar, percussion, and bits of banjo, bass guitar, mandolin, and, currently, pedal steel.

Songwriting came in good time with most of them being written straight out without much re-writing as some people insist is necessary. Feeling that the enjoyment of music overshadows the "correctness of writing" was made clear with the realization that not every song written becomes a "hit" no matter how well written! In the long run, it's the listeners that determine if a song is a "hit"!!

Learning over the years how important it was to have a strong grasp of how the business end of music works, Peter started "The Lana Clarkson Memorial School of Music" as a 501(c)(3) non profit to teach kids the "Business of Music". Peter handles Sound Reinforcement, Recording, General Wisdom, etc. while relying on industry professionals to teach things like Copyrights and Contracts, Booking, Management, Instrument and Equipment Repair, "On Tour Facts" and whatever else may be needed.

Jessie Damon

Perris Records / Texas

Jesse is a singer, songwriter and guitarist born and raised in Hawthorne, California! His vocals and songwriting are his main strengths and It's in the love for his guitar playing that he shines. His songs are a mix of well-crafted material and a few intense ballads. The musical pathway of his life has been influenced by some of the biggest artists in Country, Blues and Rock music!

Jesse Damon is back with the release of his sixth solo album "Southern Highway." He has redefined his sound with a southern blues style straight out of Nashville while still maintaining the highest caliber of melodic music for his fans!

The story of "Southern Highway" began back in the fall of 2009, when Jesse started jamming with a new guitarist friend named Paul Cassidy. They played old blues songs with a southern flair and their sound led Jesse in that direction. He put together a new band called Electric Caravan with Jesse fronting the band on lead vocals and guitar, Paul Cassidy on second guitar, and a rhythm section made up of two talented longtime musician friends named Kurt Markham on drums and Chris Tanori on the bass. The band went on to shape some of the new song material which led Jesse to write more songs influenced by this new sound.

Jesse went into the studio with AOR Producer Paul Sabu to start recording the new songs, and had in mind to use alot of slide and acoustic guitar to the tracks as well as a whole lot of honky tonk and tradititonal blues style guitar that shaped the personality and attitude needed for what he wanted to accomplish! Southern Highway has been discribed as a melodic driven, southern rockin' hell of a good time!

Jesse Damon’s story takes the listener to another time and place, to the Genesis of all that is American Music!
