Mike ‘Maz’ Maher has made a name for himself as a founding member of the Multi-Grammy award winning group Snarky Puppy. Although he functions as a trumpeter with the pups, it would be remiss to categorize Maz as a 'closet singer-songwriter.' His songs incorporate folk, rock, soul and jazz traditions with a seamless mastery that is perhaps only overshadowed by his ability to captivate audiences with the soulful intimacy of his voice.
In a short period of time, British-born, Canadian-raised Michelle Willis has made a name for herself as a songwriter, singer and keyboard player performing with some of the worlds most well-loved artists (Iggy & the Stooges, Snarky Puppy, Zac Brown Band, and David Crosby to name a few). Her debut album See Us Through was released on Snarky Puppy's GroundUP Music label, and features richly stacked vocals atop americana, folk and jazz harmony, searching through ideas of soul-diving, love lost and love needed. A Toronto native, Michelle can now mostoften be heard performing out of Brooklyn, NY.
