Frank McComb
 
Frank McComb is a divine soul man who speaks with the native tongue of soul, jazz, blues and pop. His virtuoso vocal and piano work has made him not only an indispensable and highly sought after session musician, but a favorite on the soul, jazz and R&B scenes. 

His fans affectionately describe his work as the perfect combination of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Frank has worked with many of the entertainment industry's giants including but not limited to: Prince, Branford Marsalis, George Duke, Patrice Rushen, The Rude Boys, Phil Perry, Tommy Davidson, Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Songwriting duo Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, rap duo D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (Will Smith), Frankie Beverly and Maze, Teena Marie, Lalah Hathaway, Terri Lynn Carrington, Phyllis Hyman, Valerie Simpson, Philip Bailey, and more. 

After signing to Motown's short-lived jazz label "MoJazz" from 1992 until 1994, Frank was able to lend his vocal chops to the Buckshot LeFonque (Featuring Branford Marsalis) hit song "Another Day". It was this featured performance that would lead to a recording contract with Columbia Records in 1998 where Frank would record and release his debut CD "Love Stories" in 2000. In 2003, Frank would go on to sign with Malibu Sessions for the release of his 2nd CD entitled "The Truth Vol.1". 

After a bit of soul searching, Frank decided to release his works independently and in 2004 he released his 3rd CD, "Straight From The Vault", an entirely self-written, self-produced and self­ recorded CD that would win him the "SoulTracks Readers Choice Award" for "Best Album of the Year" and earn him a spotlight with Jill Scott in an August 2005 publication Oprah Winfrey's highly respected "O Magazine" as one of Ms. Scott's favorite CD's. "Straight From The Vault" also became Prince's favorite body of work by Frank McComb at the time. "Straight From The Vault" was followed by twelve album releases between 2006 and 2017 under Frank's own Boobeescoot Music label, the latest CD being his first with his Amsterdam based quartet "No Rehearsal/Live in Amsterdam". Frank McComb was honored by Music Radar as the 27th greatest keyboard player of all time.

After touring with stars like Bobby Caldwell, Gino Vannelli, Jeff Lorber Fusion, Smokey Robinson and two time Grammy Winning Diane Schuur, Patrick Lamb is one of the most exciting break out artists on the scene with three top five Billboard Hits.

 “This was the first time I saw Patrick - I was amazed - he’s definitely one of the brightest new breakout artists on the scene - he had a whole place up dancing. The next Boney James."
~Larry Farber agent/owner of Middle C Jazz North Carolina


A lot of people have seen Patrick on tour with major artists but have no idea what they will find with his shows out on his own, and Patrick is quickly showing them that he will turn out every house and leave people on their feet. Patrick recently sold out Humphry’s, Perfect Note, Spagettinni’s, and people are starting to know that when they come to the show that not only are they going to hear a lot of new music but it’s going to be a great time and it’s going to be a party. Get your tickets!

"One of the best instrumentalists I've ever worked with.."
~R&B legend Bobby Caldwell 


“Gene­rous, talen­ted and smart­: Patri­ck Lamb is Portl­and’s ‘rena­issan­ce man”
~Sam Adams Mayor, Portland OR


“Awesome set of songs here—by an saxophone artist who’s time has indeed come! Congrats, Patrick on a wonderful album!"
~Dave Koz


"From the moment Patrick hit the first note I knew we were going to work together for a long time. Just great all around player who understands what is needed at any given moment. Happy to call Patrick a member of the band and my friend.

With the legends at work, shopping “the demo” to top record labels, the band “Curio” signed a deal with Motown records. During the recording of their album, the band unique sound, the band performed in the HIT movie “Another 48 hours” featuring Eddie Murphy, doing three songs on the movie soundtrack.


While signed to Motown, Rodney met R&B singer “Keith Washington” and along with Marsha Jenkins wrote the NOW platinum record “Kissing You”, which after 20 years is still rocking the airwaves!

JOHN DILLARD
WEBSITE


Profusely creative, highly energetic, sensitive, and yet dynamic: These are a few words that describe the artistry of this extraordinary artist and bassist. From Gospel to RnB, Funk to Jazz, John’s versa-le style has been a key element for many artists, producers, and musical directors worldwide.

ROBYN SPRINGER
Robyn Springer is a professional vocalist whose richly diverse musical background includes a debut R&B solo album (Makin’ Moves, Virgin Records/ Cardiac); featured vocal performances on albums by such artists as contemporary jazz saxophonist Najee to Fugees’ alternative/rapper John Forte; and various live tours from London to Greece to New York, where she appeared with such legends as George

Benson, Herbie Hancock, and Kirk Whalem. A native of New York City, Springer has recorded on such labels as Atlantic, Transparent and Verve/ Forecast. Springer, a first-alto, boasts a versatile and sultry style known to transport audiences from church pews to Delta juke joints to downtown jazz cafes. Her latest album, The Acoustic Project, is an eclectic collaboration with guitarist and songwriter Greg Cagle.

JAY D. JONES
"Jay D. Jones is one sure act that’s hard to follow and one you definitely don’t want to miss. He is a Charlotte native and personifies the true quality of music at its finest. This modern-day “Crooner” is bellowing his way to the top in the Indie industry of music and into the hearts of his fans with his soulful sounds and distinguished gentlemanly image. His artistry is credited to inspiring artists such as Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, and his all-time favorite, The Temptations, and that’s only a few. Jay D. Jones gives honor to the Most High for his accomplishments and makes no excuses for anyone. “It is this solid foundation/rock on which I stand that has elevated me to the highest places and I’m still climbing.” His genre of Jazzy Inspirational Soul or HeartSoul is sweeping the nation as he invites people of all races, cultures, and creeds to an experience beyond such barriers to hear what he considers just plain old GOOD MUSIC!!!"

“A remarkable, contemporary bluesman…a powerhouse young guitarist and soulful vocalist. A major player…highly recommended” –Rolling Stone


“Rising blues star Selwyn Birchwood is the real deal. Birchwood puts his own fresh spin on the blues, taking the tradition and making it into something new.” –Guitar World


“A skilled, energetic and original artist…His songwriting is observant, clever and pointed. His voice is smooth; his singing on target. His guitar fluency generates new licks and rhythmic surprises. Expectations have been high for Mr. Birchwood—and he lives up to them.” –Wall Street Journal

Birchwood and his band have crisscrossed the U.S. and Europe repeatedly, delivering unforgettable live performances. They have appeared domestically at festivals including The Chicago Blues Festival, Portland’s Waterfront Blues Festival, The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, The Tampa Bay Blues Festival, The North Atlantic Blues Festival, The King Biscuit Blues Festival as well as on The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise and Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea. Internationally, they have performed at The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, Jazz a Vienne in France, the Rawa Blues Festival in Poland, the Moulin Blues Festival in the Netherlands, the Ottawa Blues Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival in Canada, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, as well as playing concerts in Spain, Norway, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Belgium and Mexico.

“I write and sing what I know,” says Birchwood, whose musical innovations are as expansive as his influences are deep. With Living In A Burning House, Selwyn Birchwood is looking forward to winning over thousands of new fans. “They say everything is better when it’s made with love,” says Birchwood. “That’s how we play our music and that’s how we made the new album. I want my audience to say, ‘I know exactly what that feels like,’ when a song hits them. Because that’s when it stops just being music and starts being medicine. After all, we are all stricken with the condition of being human.”
