~ Bio: Emily (vocals, guitar) grew up with wide open spaces in Big Sky Country. She landed in Sedona, AZ in 2011 after traveling the world over looking for a place that felt like home. Her musical endeavors began with singing around campfires during the early years, and later expanded to include studying at Berklee College of Music and performing live at open mikes, festivals, and venues across Northern Arizona. She draws inspiration from the red rocks, mountains, creeks, and beauty all around her.
Emily currently plays a Luna Flora Lotus Acoustic Electric Guitar
~ Bio: Originally from California, Mynzah moved to Arizona in 2011 after a spiritual awakening in 2008 and within days began playing percussion after attending his first drum circle at the Oak Creek Brewery, in Sedona. The next day he purchased his first drum and began his drumming journey. On December 11th, 2016, Mynzah was recorded professionally for the first time with the band Lucky Lenny on the track “Crazy“, for their debut album, “Going Home“, released February 10th, 2017. Follow the link to take a listen to the track and the album. Mynzah continues to grow as a drummer with the intention of adding a trap set to the growing percussion assembly.
Please join us for a night of music with Stephen Ashbrook! As a precursor to Saturday nights full band event, enjoy Stephen Ashbrook Unplugged Friday Sep 20th 8-11PM. A local favorite! Arrive early we are always packed when Stephen visits!
West Coast singer/songwriter Stephen Ashbrook had access to only two records growing up (Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water and Jesus Christ Superstar), both of which were enticing enough to send the California native on a hunt to his local library to expand his musical horizons.
Citing heroes as diverse as John Steinbeck, the Rolling Stones, and Winston Churchill, Ashbrook honed his chops amidst the fertile late-’90s Tempe, Arizona alt-rock scene, where he took home The Phoenix Tribune’s Best Acoustic Performer title in both 1998 and 2000; he even got to play for President William Jefferson Clinton, at the request of the White House.
Known for his rich baritone, smooth falsetto, and penchant for open-road heartland folk-rock in the vein of Tom Petty, the Wallflowers, and Joe Henry, he released an EP, About Last Night, in 1993, followed by a full-length eponymous studio album with his band Satellite in 1995.
His solo debut, the critically acclaimed Navigator, arrived in 1998, with Drive and American B-Sides, the latter of which featured members of the Gin Blossoms, the Pistoleros, and Dead Hot Workshop, arriving in 2001 and 2002, respectively.
Ashbrook relocated to Portland, Oregon after the arrival of the latter, releasing his first live collection, Double Live @ Long Wong’s, in 2004, and White Balloons, his sixth studio album, in 2008.
