Mark Stuart will spend 2018 doing what he has always done. He will tour full-time as a musical artist, bringing his years of experience to the stage. Onstage, his focus is on the songs he has penned and recorded, delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing.
After many years on the Americana/Folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar "chops", and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk music roots. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo or in a notable duo with his wife ("Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart"). There were stints along the way as a sideman, though (Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, Joan Baez). If placed on the bill with a contemporary artist he is usually asked to play guitar on their portion of the show. Just ask Jason Ringenberg, Ray Wylie Hubbard, or Jimmy LaFave.
Jeff Graham So if you go to Jeff Graham's website and his Bio it is quite modest and it begins with, "Born in Joplin, MO. Have lived and played music in Joplin, MO, Springfield, K.C., Columbia, MO, Austin, TX, Nashville, TN, finally coming to rest in Tulsa, OK. If there's melody, some drive, a little twang, and some backbeat, it generally catches my attention." Then it continues on with a list of all of the great bands with whom Jeff has played or recorded, including playing guitar on my record "Foxhole Radio."
What he's not telling you is that he's a "solid guy, one of the good ones." Jeff can take his telecaster and channel Dick Dale or Chuck Berry and then pick up his acoustic guitar sing a thoughtful and witty folk pop song ala-Elvis Costello. His original music has elements of country, rockabilly, folk, and pop, and he delivers it all with unassuming grace indicative of mid-westerners. Jeff knows how to write a great song, and he never forgets that all important groove. Scott Aycock- Folk Salad Radio
