On his new release Another Day (Eusonia Records, 2011), Zach Deputy demonstrates his extraordinary ability to perform and record in multiple contexts and conveys the sensibilities of a mature singer/songwriter. Another Day offers another look at Zach Deputy and seeks to help him cross over into other audiences. Rich with ballads and mid-tempo songs, the music on this recording is best described as soulful rhythm and blues, with flavors of Al Green, Taj Mahal and Stevie Wonder emerging in the swells, changes and modulations of the music, in the voice and even in the lyrical content. The record will appeal to fans of contemporary artists like Jack Johnson and Amos Lee, but the origins of the style and feel remain classic.Zach Deputy

Despite an almost complete lack of a music scene in the small town where she lived, Gracie was able to find a few like-minded folks at sparse open mics and gatherings. This eventually led to the formation of The Jaypan Fans- a three piece comprised of Gracie on rhythm guitar and vocals, Amanda Rodriguez-Olivo on rhythm guitar, bass, and vocals, and Ryan Dickerson on lead guitar. The trio played as many events and music nights at the locals bars as they could get their hands on, focusing heavily on harmonies and a southern sound. The trio occasionally rounded out their sound with Matthew Beavers on drums and Amy Leigh on dobro.Gracie Lane
