Leisure McCorkle
Leisure McCorkle
Kinda like a flame-thrower of pop music in an otherwise drab top 40 world,” is just one of the many descriptions of North Carolina power-pop songwriter Leisure McCorkle. Both on tour with the full band and solo acoustic, McCorkle has logged well over a thousand shows playing across the globe. Releasing four albums ranging the spectrum of Beatles/Elvis Costello/Jellyfish type melodies and hooks with indie vision comparable to The Pixies, Elliott Smith, and Whiskeytown, Leisure McCorkle delivers “the passionate goods” each and every time he plays, from small intimate venues to large concert halls. McCorkle makes his latest stop to San Francisco at the Hotel Utah as part of his warm up to TWO new CD releases for 2013.
John Thomas Griffith
John Thomas Griffith
John Thomas Griffith (born April 3, 1960) is an American singer-songwriter best known as a guitarist and vocalist for the band Cowboy Mouth. Griffith first established himself on the American music scene in the early 1980s as lead singer and guitarist for the new wave band Red Rockers, co-writing their 1983 MTV hit "China".

Griffith was born in Lubbock, Texas, and raised in Houston, but it was in Louisiana, while attending LSU in Baton Rouge, that he began his professional musical career. Finding a base in New Orleans, Griffith and friends started the early punk rock band Red Rockers. After a short but successful career highlighted by the "China" single and its album Good As Gold (1983), Red Rockers disbanded in early 1985.

Griffith formed Cowboy Mouth in 1990, and the band continues to tour with over a dozen full-length albums in its repertoire. Griffith released his first solo CD, Son of an Engineer, in 2000 on Laughing Gravy Music.

Known by most music fans as "JTG" or "Griff", John Thomas Griffith was inducted into Buddy magazine's Texas Guitar Hall of Fame in 1999, joining Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Eric Johnson, and others.

When not touring, he resides in Los Angeles, California, and scores motion picture soundtracks.
