Jacob Cole & Papa Bear

JACOB COLE is a Lompoc and Santa Barbara based songwriter, guitarist and singer. Previously fronting Saint Anne's Place and King Cole, Jacob grew up on the quiet central coast listening to an eclectic mix of 60’s FM radio and the hits of the 80’s. Fond of the Beatles' sense of melody, the experimentation and mystery of John Fahey, and the song 'Lift Me Up' by Bruce Springsteen - Jacob & his band incorporate it all but update the sound for today.

PAPA BEAR: Constantly striving to explore the boundaries and edges of human emotion, Papa Bear captures a deep perspective into the human experience. Lyrical content covers the gamut of mystery, beauty, and the comedy and tragedy of life. The musical lineage stems from the folk heritage, but ranges broadly.. from Americana and bluegrass, to blues, jazz, and good old rock’n’roll. PB and the Easy Love’s shows typically end in a massive singalong, blurring the boundaries between performer and audience, and inviting all to express themselves.

DJ Oliwa & Jackson Whalan

Oliver Newell ( Oliwa ) is a music producer, arranger, composer and multi-instrumentalist originally from Austin, Texas and currently based in Ojai, California. His projects often explore the integration of organic acoustic instruments and digital electronic sounds, striking a peculiar balance between groovy earthy roots music and cerebral futuristic sonic experimentalism. His diverse music experiences as an upright and electric bassist combined with his autodidactic sensibilities and fascination with technology inform his unique production style.

Jackson Whalan is a multi-talented lyricist, producer, and performer, bringing a transformative variety of hip-hop and electronic bass music; inspiring dancing, social movement, and thought provoking ideas. His performances and recorded music are infused with special guests and live instrumentation, taking audiences on a dynamic journey with consistent momentum, and capturing the heaviness that is felt when live and electronic music combine. Diversity is Jackson's strong-point, from his hilarious "S.N.A.G. (Sensitive New Age guy)" parody video, to his "Souled out EP" (Adapted Records), an ode to golden era boom-bap style hip hop. In addition to consistent touring and recording, Jackson also has experience in engineering and scoring for film and commercials, and has worked on producing a variety of events throughout his career.

Whiskerman

Whether entranced in a ballad or clawing out some frenzied rock and roll, Whiskerman is seeking the heart of the matter. Lush instrumentation combined with front man Graham Patzner's profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Patzner’s voice, both smokey and soaring, leads a passionate live show as the band’s classic rock sound seamlessly cascades through realms of bluesy devotion, psychedelic melancholy, and twangy celebration. Whiskerman's shows tend to set spells, either sweeping the audience up in revelation, or dropping them into knee-slapping frenzy. Joining Patzner (vocals, guitar, violin and piano), is Will Lawrence (bass and mandolin), and Charles Lloyd (guitar and sitar), Dan Schwartz (drums), and Trevor Bahnson (guitar).
