Heather Combs
Heather Combs
Heather Combs, a Gainesville, Florida native now living in California, is a powerhouse on stage. A little bit reckless, a little irreverent but mostly wielding an authentic heart – put her on a stage and within minutes she can turn the eye of a new batch of faithful fans. Her voice is sweet and then rough, strong and then vulnerable, but always honest and true. She plays guitar with reckless abandon and isn't afraid to show the listener who she really is. And now Combs brings us Everybody Has Their Turn, an album packed with all the passion and personality of her live shows.

In her fifteen+ year career, she has shared the stage with many fantastic musicians such as Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty, Steve Earle, Sheryl Crow, Kasey Chambers, Todd Snider, Los Lobos and the Go-Gos. Heather’s songs have been featured in hit TV shows such as ER and Grey’s Anatomy. She is fiery, funny, intense and not afraid to take risks. Having been named “Best Band in the Bay” by San Francisco Magazine twice and a part of KFOG’s Local Scene CD, Heather thrives on connecting with the audience and Everybody Has Their Turn is the perfect extension of that.

Alden Schell
Alden Schell
"I wanna stop saying I wanna stop," sings Alden Schell on her unreleased album, and there is something serene yet powerful about her voice in full flight: it's a little wild, slightly smooth, part Patty Griffin, part Joni Mitchell, melting poetry and life into one beautiful sound and one perfect picture.
Rick Hardin
Rick Hardin
Hi, my name is Rick Hardin and it has been 3 hours since my last strum. I became addicted to the guitar years ago...I guess you could say that I fell in with the wrong crowd...

The San Francisco Bay Area has been enabling my "habit" from the beginning. In the early days I would wander the sidewalks playing, writing or jamming with any musician I could find with my Takamine 6 string; for awhile that satisfied my addiction. As you have probably guessed my condition became much worse...Before long I had a regular group of players that encouraged the use of my guitar and even suggested that I record original music.

When reaching for reasons as to why my condition became so bad, I came to blame other local folks like, Heather Combs, Tom Luce, Bonnie Rait, Chris Isaak, Bonnie Hayes...and so on.

...All joking aside, music is something I am compelled to be part of. Thank you for lending your ears, hope to see you at a show soon!

Rick Hardin has a voice so polished and easy to listen to that you think he is lip sinking to the radio. An established San Francisco singer/songwriter, Rick's music is moving and from the heart. Although he has yet to put out a full length album, Hardin continues to perform at some of the best established bay area venues. Keep yours ears tuned in on this great local talent!
