Bill Simms Live at Mulberry
Bill Simms is a Hamilton-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist originally from Newfoundland. His music ranges stylistically between folk, country, blues, and soul with lyrics that showcase his cheeky sense of humour and honest sincerity. He honed his skills as a performer in St. Francis Xavier’s Jazz Studies program, and released his first album, Moustache City, in 2015. He has performed with successful local folk and roots artists including Sarah Beatty, Raine Hamilton, The Heavy Horses, Gillian Nicola and Piper Hayes.
Now performing around Southern Ontario, Bill is ready to unleash a whole slew of folk/roots songs sure to make audiences hoot, holler, belly laugh and maybe even shed a tear. Dealing with subjects such as love, longing, adultery, death and even UFOs, Bill's songs have something for everyone to relate to.
David Stone Live at Mulberry
Stone's songs are carefully written and could easily stand alone as poetry. The fact that he can accompany them with strong melodies that lend themselves to sing-alongs, a voice just this side of gravelly, and delicate guitar work when the occasion calls for it makes Stone a quadruple-threat."
Marcus Starr Live at Mulberry
Marcus Starr's debut album 'Going To Muscle Shoals (produced by Brock Zeman) displays both his Southern musical influences and his deep connection to authentic roots music. With songs such as Fell In Mud, Let My Blues Take Your Blues Away and Going To Muscle Shoals, it comes as no surprise that Marcus Starr is emerging as a compelling and rousing guitarist-songwriter who is finding his place amongst the great roots musicians, past and present.
Marcus has been an avid player on Southern Ontario's music scene having played lead guitar with Radio Free Universe for six years (2010-2016) and has earned a reputation as being an exciting and dynamic performer and guitarist. During this time, however, Marcus had always made clear his love for roots, blues and funk/jam music with the various side projects he performed with.
Currently, Marcus Starr has been performing solo acoustic shows and with The Marcus Starr Band where his passion and knowledge of roots and Americana music are joyfully displayed to eager audiences. Diving deep into roots, blues, groove and alt-country-with a side of pure unadulterated rock n roll, Marcus Starr's music offers something uniquely special and will leave his audience hungry for more.
There is a place where all the elements of roots music can meet and flourish and it is a powerful and compelling place to be. This is a place Marcus Starr's music will take its listeners to.
