Blue Water Highway runs just outside of Freeport up towards Galveston along the Texas Gulf Coast. This is the part of the world where the cultures of Texas and Louisiana collide in a unique melting pot steeped in the traditions of the people of both states. It is here, in the town of Lake Jackson, TX, that Zack Kibodeaux and Greg Essington became high school friends after Zack witnessed Greg playing Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” and immediately enrolled in piano lessons himself. Their partnership included performing in musicals and local coffee shops, until the friends went their separate ways after high school. Greg headed to New York City to pursue a degree in music technology. Zack went to Texas State in San Marcos to study vocal performance, specifically opera. Soon, Zack was writing songs and sending them to his friend in New York. Finally, he coaxed Greg back to Texas to form the band he had been hearing in his head. Although they had landed in their adopted...

Jazz pianist and composer Chan Hall’s soothing grooves provide a vibrant, expansive landscape of poetry in motion; influenced by Herbie Hancock, George Duke, Chick Corea, and George Benson. The July 2011 release of Chan’s debut album Dreaming Afterdark has gained buzz throughout the mid-Atlantic jazz community. The project is the culmination of a lifetime of dreams deferred for this jazz keyboardist. A native of Wilson, North Carolina, William “Chan” Hall started playing the piano by ear at the age of 15. But it was playing basketball that ruled his teenage years. He dreamed of becoming a superstar athlete at North Carolina State University. At the same time, he was a standout percussionist in his high school concert band. He was featured on the xylophone, vibes, marimba, bass drum, and auxiliary percussion instruments. During those years, his band instructor introduced him to jazz music. He instantly fell in love and even more so when the possibility of playing college...

Daniel Champagne The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road. The next several years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. He has toured and shared stages with Jake Shimabukuro, Jesse Cook, Roderigo Y Gabriela, Richard Shindell, The Ragbirds, The...
