About this Event
Hailing from Chicago, Alex Murphy grew up in a family of musicians with parents who emphasized musical exploration at an early age. He grew up in an area where the arts were strongly supported and he had the support to grow his passion for jazz. In high school, he had the opportunity to study under many distinguished jazz performers and educators at Birch Creek Jazz Camp and began exploring writing his own music as well as iterations of jazz greats. His passion for jazz led him into continued study at DePaul University in Chicago where he was under the tutelage of Ron Perrillo and Dana Hall. Alex was part of a very talented crop of young musicians working their way into the music scene in Chicago.
Alex’s performance portfolio continues to grow. He has performed at Chicago classics including the Jazz Showcase, Andy’s Jazz Club, Green Mill, and was featured in a master class at Symphony Center with jazz piano great Bill Charlap. He has been featured in the Chicago Jazz Festival and other area jazz festivals throughout the Midwest. Alex has had the opportunity to share the stage with jazz artists Nicholas Payton, Dave Douglas, Bobby Broom, Joel Frahm, Dezron Douglas, Pharezz Whitted, Mark Colby, Matt Ulery, Dennis Carroll, Roger Ingram, and Joe Grandsden. From a growing studio portfolio with jazz and hip hop artists as well as his continued pursuit of live jazz performance, Alex is excited to expand his talent into the Nashville area.
Tenacious. Warm. Soulful. Sultry, sexy, and buttery. Those are a few of the words used to describe the powerhouse that is Bailey Hyneman. Born in Memphis, TN, Bailey was raised on the sounds of Smooth Jazz, Barry White, Al Green, and Beale Street. The influences obvious as soon as you meet her, and undeniable when she is performing. At just 7 years old, Bailey's mom (an incredible vocalist herself) enrolled her in voice lessons with her former voice coach, the late and great Bob Westbrook. Under the guidance of Bob, Bailey would start performing all over the mid-south and by 14 years old her resume would include performances in New York, Los Angeles, and at the Vatican in Rome.
After attending Berklee College of Music, Bailey found herself between NYC and Nashville where she would find her own voice as a writer and performer. It was on her NY fire escape that she would write her first EP "Again - Vol. 1," and back in Nashville where she would finish the recording process under the guidance of her good friend and now producer Jus James. "Again - Vol 1" was released May 23, 2022. Next up, is the release of “You’re the One” on May 26th, highlighting the soul, jazz, and R&B sounds that she and Jus both grew up on.
