Zander Schloss is a battle weary musician who has been writing and performing music for over 30 years. He has worked with the Circle Jerks, Weirdos, Sean & Zander, and the legendary Joe Strummer, to name a few. After many years in a collaborative role, he is now presenting his long cultivated solo works to the public. Zander possesses a lyrical baritone that is tempered with a heart on sleeve sincerity and a life rich in experience. Schloss’ songs are wistful with just a touch of the sneering punk veteran peeking through. His timeless approach to songcraft showcases his unwavering commitment to music’s transcendent power.

Schloss is also known for his contributions to independent feature films. His first screen appearance was as “Kevin the Nerd” in Repo Man. He went on to appear in a number of Alex Cox films as well as to make significant musical contributions in other Cox features such as Sid and Nancy (1986), Straight to Hell (1987), Walker (1987), El Patrullero (1991) and The Winner (1996).


Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding.

Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date.

Sad Daddy began as the meeting of three musical minds — Brian Martin (guitar), Melissa Carper (bass), and Joe Sundell (banjo). The dynamic songwriting of the original three members carried the group’s 2010 self-titled release and won them a loyal following in and around the great state of Arkansas. However, with Carper and Sundell residing in Austin, TX and Martin far away in Ozark country the group’s opportunities for collaboration and performance were few and far between. Now with the original members all back in Arkansas as well as the addition of standout fidller Rebecca Patek, Sad Daddy is embarking on the next chapter of their musical journey, with a follow up album in the works and a full schedule of tour dates to go with. While Sad Daddy’s musicianship and stagecraft are worthy of mention, the songwriting of Martin, Carper, and Sundell, remains the cornerstone of the group’s allure and allows them to connect with a wide range of audiences.
