Lydia Joy Davis, a life long musician, has toured all over the world during her diverse musical endeavors. A Santa Cruz local who took a brief hiatus to to explore other facets of life, she is back now gingerly setting her foot on a path to creating some of her own music. She composes in a singer song writer style and also in a more modern classical style on violin, her home instrument. She has played with Santa Cruz Symphony, Con Corazon, Charanga9, her family string trio called Dancing on Strings, and once sat in with Celia Cruz’s band for an impromptu solo. She has contributed to the albums of Steve Graves, Ukulele Dick, Jenner Howland and a few others. Look her up on Youtube, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and many other to her her original works. She is contemplating titling her new album Anti-Heroine Anthems, but maybe not.
Janet Croteau is a Santa Cruz, CA based songwriter, comedian, and spoken word artist. Her first album, Wild Heart, captures her quirky and effervescent spirit. With lyrical abandon she explores a range of human experiences that include being a Fisherman’s Wife, having a One Night Stand in Vegas, Meditation, going to Burning Man, and the sublime beauty of a Medicine Journey. Her intimate Folk/Americana songwriting style is infused with depth and humor. Janet brings an authentic and comedic presence to the stage. Janet will be joined by her husband Ed Croteau and friend Jill Faragher.

He has toured internationally for the last 15 years, performing in Germany, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and a couple of years ago, even Estonia! He performs his original music at festivals, retreats, and gatherings of all kinds. Steven regularly works as a studio musician, teaches guitar, voice, and most of all enjoys helping other songwriters hone their craft.
