Talia Keys has been making a name for herself. A Utah Native, she has been playing shows all over her home state in the last 6 years. This past summer she took her one woman show across the United States. She began her journey at Electric Forest in Rothbury MI, where she was received very well and was named one of the "Best of Electric Forest" by Insomniac. She continued on to play in South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana and Texas. Having just released her first solo EP, "Gemini Mind" she wanted to spread her music and message across the country. She also plays with her band Marinade and they have been together for 5 years now. Together they have released an album, played countless music festivals, bars, venues and toured through Colorado, Idaho and Utah. With their blend of funk, reggae, rock and soul they have made quite the following, keeping people dancing all night with their conscious party music. "The World is a sad place right now, you look everywhere and their is a cause to fight for. Whether it is human rights, land conservation, or peace, I write conscious music to bring light and love to these situations. I am politically outspoken, but I fight for one common goal- Love." Between gigging with Marinade and playing solo Talia stays extremely busy. Yet she still finds time to play with others at music jams or the occasional show with a female super group. She loves and lives music and you never know what you she will do next.

Merchant Royal



With an emphasis on dense lyrical melodies over bluesy riff-based instrumentation, Merchant Royal is the epitome of four unique pieces that fit perfectly into a cohesive whole. What occurs is a new sound that echoes influences from 1960's and '70's rock, yet also focuses on originality, soul, and creativity, all which can be witnessed in their performances.

The band consists of Ryan Arnold (guitar), Jake Gloschat (drums), Kevin Schultz (bass), and Christina Manteris (vocals), whose warm, sultry voice completes the full-bodied experience. Each member commits their entire being to the group, willing to push the band to it's full potential, with only the horizon in mind for the growth of their collective musical and artistic abilities.
