David Poe

DAVID POE, critically-acclaimed LA-based singer/songwriter/recording artist, is an extraordinary performer and a funny, intelligent, charismatic storyteller.  His songs are gems of genius and beauty.  He’s also hot as a pistol right now because of his smash hit song “Gun For a Mouth,” which he wrote for the hit ABC TV series “Nashville.”  Poe’s songs have appeared in numerous films and television shows, including The O.C., and have been recorded by the likes of Darryl Hall, Duncan Sheik, and Grace Potter.  His score for Shadowland, a touring show by the contemporary dance company Pilobolus, has been performed on every continent, including a presentation for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Poe is a composer fellow of the Sundance Institute.

“The major domo of songwriters.” – Village Voice
“[Songs] like miniature novels.” – The London Independent

“David Poe gives the singer-songwriter genre a much-needed jolt.” – Rolling Stone

Phil Roy

PHIL ROY, Award-winning Philadelphia-born singer/songwriter/guitarist/recording artist, is not only a talented and successful songwriter, he’s also a celebrated recording artist and touring performer.  Phil’s songs have been recorded by Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, The Neville Brothers, Pops Staples, & Wyclef Jean, and he’s also had his songs in hit movies like “As Good As It Gets” and “Leaving Las Vegas.”  His recording of his song “Melt” from his album “Grouchyfriendly” was named the song of the year by the Independent Music Awards, and was a staple on AAA Radio.  Phil, also a fantastic cook, operated his “I’m Not Leaving the House” tour out of his townhouse in Philadelphia with a table for sixteen, providing home-cooked food and original songs for his guest audience on a monthly basis.  Phil Roy recently relocated to Idaho with his wife, and their son Enzo was born in Boise in August.

“An undercurrent of raw melancholy runs through his songs making him a kindred sprit to brooding types like Leonard Cohen, John Martyn, and Peter Gabriel. – Jon Pareles, New York Times

“Phil’s one of the greatest writers I know… – Mavis Staples (Singer/Soul Legend)

“Eccentric, lush + musical… An atmospheric wicked beauty… Uncommonly smooth, yet strange and curious…Enjoy the Roy”  – Tom Waits, musician

Bill Coffey

BILL COFFEY, Boise Idaho’s favorite singer/songwriter, is originally from Ventura California, where he cut his teeth playing in bar bands and honing his songwriting craft.  He’s opened shows for the likes of Dwight Yoakam, John Hiatt, George Jones, Hal Ketchum, John Hammond and Todd Snider, and he’s a popular headliner in the clubs, festivals, and theaters of the Northwest.  His songs, at times heartbreaking, brutally honest, and profoundly wise and earnest, can also range from the pithy to the downright hilarious.  He is an avid and learned student of the great country and folk songwriters such as Buck Owens, Hank Williams, John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, and Bob Dylan, but Bill Coffey also knows how to rock.

“(Coffey’s) rootsy tales speak of love, longing, and the little challenges in life.” – M. Deeds, Idaho Statesman

“Coffey’s abilities turn everyday items into song subjects with significance.” -Boise Weekly
