Joe Bizelli is a singer-songwriter from New Melle, MO who hopes to write a million dollar country song so he doesn’t have to work a day job anymore. About 2 years ago, Joe got to go to The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and listen to 4 professional songwriters. After that night, there was no doubt in his mind that that was what he wanted to do with his life. Since that night, he’s been studying the craft of songwriting, watching interviews of songwriters, reading books, networking, etc. in an effort to become the best writer he can possibly be.
Musician by night; teacher by day. Kyle Walz plays his blend of funky blues around the St. Louis, MO area since the spring of 2014. With strong musical origins as a guitar player since age 4, Kyle began writing songs and building performance experience by working through open mic nights, to songwriter showcases, to solo shows. Always honest, raw, and giving his best Kyle is known for his bluesy power yet still will have the occasional original modern rock, RnB, calypso, or country song in the mix.
