Inspired keyboardist, composer, prolific studio musician and producer Brian Simpson is a master of all he purveys.

Nils Hit #1 on the Radio & Records airplay chart, “Pacific Coast Highway” became the soundtrack of the summer, staying at #1 for seven weeks on its way to being named the most played song in the format in the U.S. and Canada for the year. The guitarist’s follow-up single “Summer Nights” remained in the Top 5 for six months on the same chart and became his 2nd #1 hit.
Heading full-throttle into his second decade as a recording artist and his seventh year as host of the popular syndicated “Blake Aaron Live w Tina Anderson,” a live music radio show, Blake Aaron, the multi-faceted guitarist, composer, producer and media personality – now releasing his highly anticipated 4th CD, and his first completely self-produced solo project – has a lot of fresh and dynamic musical Soul Stories to tell.
A dynamic lead bass player from Kansas City, bassist Julian Vaughn is rapidly becoming a major player in the contemporary jazz genre. Vaughn has made a name for himself as bassist in the smooth jazz genre which is dominated by saxophone players. Although the bass is often associated with funk, Vaughn likes to play with more of a finesse style as well as some funk.
Thanks for bringing such great talent here. See you next month!
