About Taylor Kingman

Taylor Kingman

Taylor Kingman sits singularly as a standup example of the duality of man. Heavy metal flower petal, he's a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n roll, freely selling you a beautiful mess as both a loyal pack member of The Hill Dogs and a lone wolf solo performer.

About Jay Cobb Anderson

Jay Cobb Anderson

About 7 years ago, with only a $100 to his name and no place to stay, Jay Cobb Anderson packed his bags, grabbed his guitars and left the small pond of Idaho for the waters of Portland, Oregon. It was here that he became a founding member of the groups Fruition, the Bellyboys and Rose City Thorns (formerly known as the Villains). These groups would go on to pack local venues, successfully tour west of the Mississippi, and release fan adored albums. As a prominent songwriter for all three bands, Anderson has woven his musical stylings from the "along the riverbed" folk tunes to the heartland Americana ballads to the loud, grimy rock and roll ragers.
