Jess Bush|Jacob Cole

Jess Bush

Born into a musical family, Jess Bush took her first piano lesson at the age of seven and was instantly hooked. After a childhood of devouring everything from classic rock, to show tunes, to Beethoven sonatas, she went on to study Piano Performance at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Inspired by the musical open heart surgery of legends like Carole King, Stevie Nicks, and Brandi Carlisle, her passion for lyrical authenticity and rich piano composition converge to create a stirring original sound best categorized as soulful indie folk rock. When she’s not playing solo sets in Ventura and the greater Los Angeles area, Jess can be found singing and playing keys with local jam band The Mystos. 

Jacob Cole

Previously fronting Saint Anne's Place, Jacob Cole has grown into a well-rounded singer/songwriter and artist reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen, early Tom Petty, and current artists not unlike Kurt Vile and Cass McCombs. Making waves on the central coast as a talented young guitar player, he continues to back other artists as well, touring and recording with Dante Elephante and opening for Summer Salt on their national tour. As a solo artist he has opened for other notable acts like Little Wings, Gardens & Villa, David Dondero, Wild Moccasins, Jamie Drake, Tom Brosseau, and Scott Hirsch of Hiss Golden Messenger. Influenced by an eclectic mix of 60s FM radio and hits of the 80s, Jacob incorporates it all but updates the sound for today, playing songs of heartbreak and loneliness. His sound is like a warm blanket on a cold night.
