Join Johnny Clay Shanks, A Mainer hailing from Texas: One part spaghetti western, 2 parts blues rock, a dash of country, and a whole lot of fun. If you ask Johnny, fun is really what it’s all about. His music has always been a byproduct of adventure and a life fraught with hard knocks and fast living.

With Boston based Anna Van is an indie-folk vocalist and guitarist. She writes through a story-telling lens, taking influence from artists such as The Lumineers, Dolly Parton, and Norah Jones. Van grew up surrounded by song and began gigging throughout the state of Maine at age thirteen. Driven by messages on identity, change, and growth, she hopes for her songs to create a space for connection. Anna Van has been featured on Music from 207, Section 36, and other local publications featuring budding musicians. She can be found on all streaming platforms

And Steve Dennis, Born in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, now living in the quiet state of New Hampshire, Steve Dennis has made his mark on the indie-folk music scene. Inspired by the likes of Gregory Alan Isakov, John Mayer, and Jackson Browne; Dennis’ music is easy listening, yet intricate. In 2021, Dennis began his relationship with critically acclaimed engineers: Jamie Mefford and David Glasser. Combined, the team released Dennis’ first single: Lighthouse Inn. The single captivated thousands of ears across the globe; thus beginning his journey in the indie-folk music scene. Fast forward to 2023, Steve Dennis has toured the United States and continued writing and releasing music. On April 7, Steve Dennis released his newest track: Run Down. The song is inspired by those who witness their heroes fall; wishing they would/could get back up.
