Daryl McDade & SOUL XL
Daryl McDade was born in Memphis, Tennessee, where he spent a lot of his time in his young years at the infamous Blues hang-out "Beale Street,” finding a platform of Gospel, Blues, Soul and Roots music. As a 27 year old artist Daryl married and moved to Norway. Daryl is a singer, songwriter, composer, artist and master guitarist – and he plays a mean harmonica to boot! He formed the SOULXL band combining the best of Soul, Blues and funky Jazz. The band performs classics, all the while mindful of respecting the integrity of the artists’ original compositions.

The Lawson Vallery Band
Lawson Vallery sure has come a long way since taking guitar lessons from Roy Orbison. He grew up in the Texas oil fields listening to radio broadcasting songs from the Grand Old Opry about cowboys, broken hearts and trains. Poetry and music have always been a passion, but there was one he kept in his back pocket until just a few years ago. In 2011 he published a collection of poems and lyrics in his book, “From The Heart”. The Lawson Vallery Band is made up of first-class musicians, and has begun recording a new album that is scheduled for release in Feb 2020. Lawson Vallery's page
