Oswego based singer/songwriter, Steven Watson has a style that blends the essence of country and the heart of the blues into a sound all his own. With thought provoking lyrics, haunting melodies and a percussive approach to his guitar playing, Watson delivers rootsy arrangements that are sure to entertain.

Originally from the Saratoga Springs region, Taylor Ricks stylistic influences include folk, jazz, blues, samba and ragtime. His writing combines introspective themes with outward observations.

Mark Wahl is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and luthier. Wahl has been performing around the local acoustic music scene for decades and is known by many as the director of the Ontario Center for Performing Arts (The Oswego Music Hall). Wahl’s songs are often poignant vignettes with powerful use of metaphor that include simple, yet compelling, melodies.
