Rachel Woods: guitar, vocals
GENRES: country – blues
The Hummingbirds are husband-wife team S.G. and Rachel Wood. Born and raised in Detroit, now residing in Tampa, their music is both northern and southern Americana, blending both grit, and self reliance with hospitality, and charm. They play old guitars through old amps, bang drums, and even pluck banjos sometimes. Their live stage chemistry and organic duo harmonies immediately captivate and charm audience members while Rachel’s solid command of rhythm guitar, peppered with S.G.’s thoughtful lead work, keep their songs rolling in true Americana form.
S.G. and Rachel were fans of classic country music, as well as myriad of other genres when they started their band in the early 2000’s. And while they continue to draw on these influences, what comes out in their own songwriting is a hybrid sound all their own, genuine & playful, earnest & soulful. Their songs twist through tales of loss & heartache, while others whisper sounds of hope, love, and journeys from the road.
Through the past years, The Hummingbirds have been doing it all. They’ve played for small crowds in smoky bars, and large concert venues for hundreds of people. They present their songs to welcoming audiences at hospitals and intimate house concerts. They enjoy the excitement of singing live on radio and performing at festivals throughout the country. Their enthusiasm for music and songwriting has even lead them to found a songwriting workshop in Northern Michigan for other songwriters passionate about the craft called, “Above The Bridge Songwriter’s Weekend.”
GENRES: Funk – Soul – bit of Rock N’ Roll
In the world and business of the music industry, every artist has a “story”. Only a handful of such can lay claim to a deeper history and pedigree.
We proudly present “The Superstars” : a labor of love from Ronnie Dee – to You!
Who is Ronnie Dee? Son of New Jersey icon Joey Dee, that’s who. Joey Dee and the Starlighters spawned a multi-million selling song “Peppermint Twist” in 1961. The musicians who performed alongside Joey included Jimi Hendrix (rock and roll hall of fame inductee 1992), The Ronettes..who recorded “Be My Baby” (rock and roll hall of fame inductee 1992) and The young Rascals..”Groovin’”..”Good Lovin” (1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee).
Ronnie Dee has taken the musical torch from his father, enlisted the efforts of a “whose who” of Tampa Bay (and beyond) musical talent. Together, we present another amazing chapter of the Dee Family History. 14 tracks of fun ….. and some pretty damn good songs as well!!
LISTEN UP!! And SHARE!!
GENRES: Blues – Rock
Florida-born Sean Chambers is an American blues rock singer, guitarist, and songwriter. Sean began his career in 1998 when he toured with the legendary Hubert Sumlin as his guitarist and band leader until 2003. During his time with Hubert Sumlin, Sean was named by Britain’s Guitarist Magazine as “one of the top 50 blues guitarists of the last century.”
His main guitar playing influences are the work of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his early professional music experience was gained while touring for four years backing Hubert Sumlin. Chambers has worked with a variety of amazingly-talented blues musicians.
GENRES: Electric Swamp Funkin’ Blues
Groundbreaking young blues visionary Selwyn Birchwood calls his original music “electric swamp funkin’ blues,” defined by raw and soulful musicianship played with fire-and-brimstone fervor. His gritty, unvarnished vocals draw his audience deep inside his unforgettable tales of love, passion, pain and pleasure. Complementing Selwyn’s electrifying guitar and lap steel playing, the other featured instrument is Regi Oliver’s driving baritone sax. The group is rounded out by bass, drums and, for the first time, keyboards.
Wanting to capture the power of the now larger band, Birchwood wrote and arranged 13 songs. From the rocking opener “I’d Climb Mountains” to the sweet soul of “She’s A Dime” and “One More Time” to the hair-raising “Revelation, Living in a Burning House” the album features some of the most poignant writing on today’s blues scene. Birchwood’s voice and vision are clear, his sound is edgy and compelling, and his stories are memorable and lasting.
According to Birchwood, “I tell my stories in my own way, with my own voice. You won’t ever hear me on stage telling someone else’s story. Muddy Waters, B.B. King and John Lee Hooker all told their own stories. That’s what I’m doing. I write and sing what I know.”
