Szefin - Annapolis and Easton, Maryland

Bart Merrick and Ally G. have been playing music for years - mostly as a part of other folks' bands... After winning the Carroll County Fiddle Competition vocal and bass competition last year through their joint effort, they decided to embark on their own original venture.

Bart has played every genre of music - from Kiss covers and rock-n-roll to Old-Time String Music, Dixieland, and Jazz... A sought after bass player - electric and stand up - by many different bands, Bart is stepping out for the first time with his original songs and music - and taking the driver's seat with the guitar playing. Bart is a fan of so many different types of artists ranging from the Carpenters, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Utah Phillips, Drive By Truckers, CCR, and the list goes on. He brings his love of southern rock styling and creative country inspired instrumentation (fiddles, banjos, accordians, etc) to the table. He's got an ear for what could make a song sound great. The acoustic demo tracks on this epk are just the groundwork for more driving instrumentation to come under Bart's direction.

Ally has been singing with various groups for years - but this is her first project where she has really brought her original songs to the forefront. From high school rock bands and singing around DC in college electric blues bands - she headed off in a more acoustic direction once she started to learn how to play guitar. Traveling to bluegrass festivals and music camps across the country, she developed a real love for the alt-country scene and the music. Back in the mid-atlantic area, she started playing and singing with various groups - including bluegrass, acoustic, and playing with other established musicians - doing anything from jazz sets to country/rock. Also wide-ranging in musical interests - White Stripes, Del McCoury and all types of bluegrass, Hank Williams, Lucinda Williams, the Sundays, Neko Case, Emmylou Harris and much more..
