Ben Arnold has toured throughout the United States and Europe with various line-ups both solo and with his rollicking live band. He has shared a stage with everyone from Ryan Adams, David Gray, Ben Folds, and Lucinda Williams to Ron Sexsmith, Randy Newman, Martin Sexton, David Johanson, Jackson Browne, Amos Lee and even a strangely mysterious week in Holland with Townes Van Zandt in the last year of his life. His lyrics remind you of John Hiatt and he's been told he sings a bit like Randy Newman but writes hooks like Springsteen used to do in the '80s. His songs explore strong emotions while his music draws on rock, folk, R&B and all genres in between. Ben is also a member of US Rails, which tours regularly in Europe and has released 5 of their own records to date. https://www.benarnold.com/index/
Will Paynter is a self-taught musician. His music is a sonic tapestry with threads of blues, country, folk, Latin and world rhythms. His work is a reflection of the music his parents shared with him growing up and his many years of world travel and cultural experiences as a professional soldier for 20 years serving with the famed US Army "Green Berets". The diversity of Will's music began when he was living in Central & South America, where he was completely absorbed by the many rhythms of Latin America and the Caribbean. Will has also traveled to the Far East & the South Pacific, North Africa, and the Middle East, which exposed him to a variety of world music not commonly heard in the US. After retiring from his military career, Will fused all of these influences into his own sound, "SONOMA SOUND". http://www.willpayntermusic.com/
Brian Kors has been playing music in the northeast for over a decade, and lives in Media, where he is closely involved with the local arts and music scene.
