Singer-Songwriter, Jessie Bridges, (daughter of Jeff Bridges) has been putting in some serious studio time over the last year and is excited about taking her musicianship to a new level. Her latest songs reflect a variety of experiences she’s had while moving around the past couple years, finding herself living in places that are quite different from the laid-back California lifestyle she’s always known.
Megan's path to Deciduous - a word that means "dropping leaves at maturity" - started comparatively late in life: she didn't pick up an instrument until she went off to Cornell University to study Landscape Architecture. But those childhood years she spent on the road with her dad's psychedelic rock band must have given her roots: by 2008 she and her brother Brandon had started recording collaborations in his Manhattan apartment, and by 2010 she had written the collection of songs that became "Acorn Collection" - the CD that earned her a spot on KFOG's Local Scene Sampler and an invitation by T Bone Burnett to submit songs for potential inclusion in the blockbuster Hunger Games soundtrack. ‘Rules’, the song she and Brandon recorded for that release with the lovely Jayme Dee on vocals, also appears on Deciduous with Megan's own voice lamenting post apocalyptic love in a dazzling arrangement.
Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance grew up together in the small Texas town of Magnolia. From a young age, they shared a love for music as well as the outdoors. About an hour north of Magnolia TX, there was some old family land with a dilapidated ranch house where they spent the better part of their adolescence.
