Artist Information

I am a jazz pianist, vocalist, songwriter and indie recording artist from Cape Breton Island. I always loved the jazz, soul, R&B, broadway standards genres and cut my teeth playing piano bar style gigs, busking in Europe, weddings- you name it!  I am always working on my own sound vocally as well as improvising and accompanying on piano in a jazz style; adding my own inflections of Rickie Lee Jones meets Diana Krall and edgy, unique tone. I met and began playing music and touring with Swiss/Canadian bassist and recording artist Danick Clavel in 2007 which really allowed me to jam my tunes and establish a solid performance calendar. My debut solo album Bucket of Honey is a proud accomplishment for me and it drops on September 23,09!! It features original tracks as well as two remakes from Tom Waits and Dizzy Gillespie. As a duo we perform regular gigs such as : cocktail parties, corporate functions, Hotel lounges, some bars or pubs, special event appearances in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and want to play more and tour the album well into 2010.  Hope to play for you someday!!

Artist Information

Bonnie Lowdermilk has been singing and playing for as long as she can remember.  She started piano lessons at age six.  She has a degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder in piano performance and piano pedagogy, and studied voice as a second instrument there.  She developed a love of jazz at the University as well and began to perform professionally.  She started out as a singer in the '70s, working with the best sidemen the area had to offer.  Gradually, she started playing the piano more and more herself.  She studied jazz piano with Denver's Ted Alexander, who gave her a strong background in Bill Evans voicings.  Throughout the 1990's Bonnie lived and performed in Paris, France.  She studied jazz piano with former Berkeley School of Music teacher, Katie Roberts.  She played in the major clubs there and in 1998 played the renown festival, "Jazz in Marciac", where celebrities such as Wynton Marsalis and Shirley Horn have played.  She also gave a 5 day vocal clinic at the festival.  She recorded her first CD in NYC with the Fred Hersch Trio in 1996.  She currently has a new CD in the works.  (Click on listen.)

Bonnie works as a solo, duo, trio (piano, upright bass, drums) and in quartet, quintet and sextet formations (add sax, trumpet, trombone or guitar) for clubs, concerts, parties, and other events throughout the Denver area and beyond.  She sings in French and Portugese as well as her native English.  She also works as a piano and vocal instructor. Her choice of repertoire is distinctive and eclectic. While she knows how to sing and play most of the standards, she has a penchant for finding largely unknown treasures which have rarely been performed or recorded.  Bonnie's singing is charged with emotion and sensuality, her voice supple and clear, with a warm low register and a luminous treble.

solo through sextet - Bonnie Lowdermilk - voice, piano, drawing on the finest area talent and adding bass, drums, sax, trumpet, trombone as desired.

"This Heart of Mine" 1997, Bonnie Lowdermilk -vocals (and piano on 2 cuts) with Fred Hersch - p., Drew Gress - b., Tom Rainey - d.

SPOTLIGHT ON Frank Hailey-Eric Zukoski Trio

Artist Information

Though the Frank-Hailey Eric Zukoski Trio’s last album, "Passing It Around", can still heard on rotation on radio, TV, and multiple compilations, after seven years, this Texas trio was itching to record another.  The result, "An Old Sweet Song", named by Jazzlines (NPR) as one of the 10 best jazz records of 2008, is a concept album that features soulful, groove-heavy jazz interpretations of popular compositions not normally associated with the jazz genre, ranging from the likes of Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz to Maria Muldauer’s Midnight At The Oasis. 

All About Jazz noted that “Hailey is a cousin of seminal jazz pianist and composer Cedar Walton.  But as this CD amply illustrates, Hailey need not invoke the reputation of his well-known relative to gain recognition, revealing he is a fine piano performer in his own right. . .  Hopefully this initial outing is the forerunner of more albums in the future." 

This wish for the future has now arrived, and the result is an album with broad appeal to not just jazz fans, but fans of popular music of all styles.  This broad appeal is boosted by performance and production work from Eric Zukoski, who has backed artists ranging from The Drifters to 1970's soul artist Al Wilson (“Show & Tell”), and whose work as a record producer includes accomplishments in several genres outside of jazz, including having produced what is now the best-selling compilation of Texas music in history ("Don't Mess With Texas Music"). 

Recent airplay reports show that the Frank Hailey-Eric Zukoski Trio's latest album,"An Old Sweet Song", is currently receiving airplay in all radio markets, including Public Radio International, and great jazz and college radio stations WUCX, WGLT, KSDS, WUCF, KVLU, KJAZZ, WICN, WUNC, KJHK, KIPO, KCUR, WRUW, KXCV, KRNW, KFAM WEFT and others.

"An Old Sweet Song" is available from iTunes and other internet retailers.

Third-party licensing of recording catalogue available from and
Mechanical and digital licensing of original compositions and copyrighted arrangements available from the Harry Fox Agency.

Artist Information

If, as Shakespeare wrote in Twelfth Night, “…some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them,” then Theo Croker fits into two out of three of the Bard’s categories. His talent is innate; he inherited a unique gift from his grandfather, the legendary trumpet player Doc Cheatham. But Theo is also an achiever. This is one young musician who is not afraid of greatness, or the hard work and dedication it takes to get there.

Theo Croker was born and raised in Leesburg, in central Florida, on July 18, 1985. Leesburg was not exactly a hotbed of music, and Theo wasn’t exactly born with a horn in his hand. He first picked one up at the age of eleven, after a visit to New York City where he heard his grandfather play at Sweet Basil. (Doc Cheatham died the following year, at 92, in 1997.) Theo continued to listen to Doc's recordings. "He had a very appealing sound, the strength behind it was always a melody," Theo says. “I would just sit in my room and play my trumpet for hours without knowing what I was doing. I would slowly teach myself new notes and play along with recordings of my grandfather and other greats. I noticed the I could fit in with what I was hearing harmonically.” It was at a memorial service for his grandfather when he had his first chance to perform for jazz-savvy audience. “I was only twelve years old, but the way the music touched people and the way it made me feel was enough to set me for life. I knew it was what I wanted to do.”

At sixteen, Theo moved, on his own, to Jacksonville, Florida so he could attend The Douglas Anderson School of the Arts. It didn’t take long before people noticed his talent. In 2004, Theo became the first artist in residence at the Ritz Theatre (a former black movie house transformed into a museum with a performance space). There he was commissioned to compose original works for the three separate groups: a seventeen-piece band and Septet he led, as well as an eighty-member choir (The Ritz Voices).

After high school, Theo had his pick of the country’s finest music schools, but the great Donald Byrd, the multi-Grammy Award winning composer and recording artist, was like a magnet that pulled him to the Oberlin Conservatory in Oberlin, Ohio. “My father died when I was eighteen, and he was a huge Donald Byrd fan. I remember seeing and hearing his records when I was young.” Other Jazz legends like Gary Bartz, Robin Eubanks, Billy Hart, Wednell Logan, Marcus Belgrave, and Dan Wall also taught at Oberlin. “I didn't want to study with teachers once I knew I could study with actual players, active Jazz legends. That made the call for me,” Theo says.

After graduating from Oberlin in 2007, Theo began his postgraduate education, hanging out and playing with older musicians like Benny Powell, Jimmy and Tootie Heath, Billy Hart, and Marcus Belgrave. They taught me how to live my life. Things not to do that they did, and things to do that they didn't."

Theo resists musical categories, a concept driven into him by his conservatory education. As deeply immersed in jazz as he is, Theo also writes and produces hip-hop, rap, and film scores, along with contemporary classical music, and other forms. So many of the greats have influenced him: Louis Armstrong, Doc Cheatham, Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown, Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, Booker Little, Miles Davis, Chet Baker, and Marcus Belgrave, as well as contemporaries like Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, Terrence Blanchard. Composers like John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Duke Ellington, Sonny Rollins, and too many others to name. Other strong influences come from hip hop & R&B: Stevie Wonder, Digable Planets, Outkast, Quincy Jones, Pharell, and many, many others. All of Theo’s heroes live (or lived) their lives for the music.

Theo received the Presser Music Foundation Award in the spring of 2006. He used the grant money to record his first album, The Fundamentals, in New York City with his band The Theo Croker Sextet. The band’s members are all in their early twenties and each is as impressive as the next; they define the ambitious and highly-skilled lions of their generation. The Fundamentals includes ten tunes, all composed and arranged by Theo. It can currently be heard playing all over the world, in places such as Australia, The Netherlands, London, Quebec, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Ukraine, Germany, Portugal, Scotland, France, Poland, Columbia, Turkey, and the Central Republic of Africa.

The response has been incredible. Donald Byrd praises Theo's musicianship: "There are good, great and nice musical players, but then there are phenomenal instrumentalist such as Theo. I would place Theo in a class of musicians who will redirect the flow, change and alter the current of today's New Jazz. Theo has the ability and the intelligence to challenge the direction of Nu Music. Theo is one of today's titans. He is a Sankofa".

Marcus Belgrave wrote: "Theo Croker is one of the most promising and creative trumpeters on the horizon today and is also one of the most energetic artists I have ever encountered."

Wynton Marsalis said: "He has the tools, the intelligence, the ability and the talents. The future looks bright for Croker.”

The legendary Jazz critic Nat Hentoff wrote: I first got to know 23-year-old Theo Croker after he returned from a gig in China (Shanghai's House of Blues and Jazz) and he was so impressive. On first hearing his trumpet on the immediately distinctive recording, I was struck by his "signature sounds" -- personal and indeed "in the tradition," but also contributing to its future. His is a voice speaking directly to the listener, and his avoidance of showboating technique reminded me of what Count Basie once said to Buck Clayton: ‘I'd give a thousand dollars to find a trumpet player who doesn't play so many notes.’ Furthermore, listening to Theo on ballads, it was at first hard to believe someone so young was able to sound as if he'd had extensive experience with affairs of the heart, gaining and losing love.”

Today, Theo lives and plays between NYC & Shanghai, China, where from September 2007 through January 2008 his Quartet held residency at the "The House of Blues and Jazz." In March 2008 the Theo Croker Quartet released In The Tradition, on Arbors Records, featuring Albert "Tootie" Heath on Drums, Sullivan Fortner on Piano & Joe Sanders on Bass.

an·o·mie [an-uh-me] n social unrest or normlessness; malaise, alienation and purposelessness.

belle [bel] n a popular and charming woman; especially: a woman whose charm and beauty make her a favorite.

“Under the moniker of Anomie Belle…Toby Campbell has proven herself to be a legitimate quintuple threat as a masterful composer, producer, programmer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist... Her sultry, smoky vocals combine with her slithery, seductive programming for the perfect balance of…sexiness and darkness. Having toured with the likes of electronica stalwarts Tricky and Little Dragon, Anomie Belle is poised to find itself among the most revered names of the genre” – URB Magazine.

Originally a classical violinist and songwriter from Portland, OR, Anomie Belle began performing and recording her own music as a child. She worked as a musician and producer in Madrid, Glasgow, Amsterdam, New York, Buenos Aires, and London before moving to Seattle in 2007. Also an active film composer, Belle has scored award-winning films that have screened at the Seattle International Film Festival, Bumbershoot, the Northwest Film Forum, and Toronto Hot Docs.

“Befitting the name Anomie Belle, in this music, alienation and social unrest mingle with charm and beauty.” (KEXP) Her material grapples with social issues ranging from American political apathy to suburban alienation, passive media spectatorship, social injustice, and consumerism. Haunting melodies and experimental electronic soundscapes transport listeners through the crowded nature of our modern minds and urban spaces.

Since her debut release, "Sleeping Patterns", Anomie Belle has toured with: Tricky, The Album Leaf, Little Dragon and (Gustavo Santaolalla's) Bajofondo.  She has also shared the stage with: Azure Ray, Kid Koala, Mirah, L'Altra, Trespassers William, Fink, talkdemonic, Manuok, JayMay, Boy Eats Drum Machine, Carmen Rizzo, Sleepy Eyes of Death, Benoit Pioulard and many others. Anomie Belle often features guest musicians, including regular guest vocalist Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William, Chemical Brothers, Lotte Kestner).

“Campbell's voice is just as textured as her compositions, with sinewy melodies and floating refrains that curl their way into your mind.” – Sentimentalist Magazine

Anomie Belle will dissolve“She combines electronic and experimental elements with sensual beats, lush strings and layered vocals, dropping the listener into the melancholy heart of her beautiful symphonies.  you.” – Performer Magazine

“Her mixture of organic instrumentation – guitar, piano, violin and other strings – with inhuman drumbeats and synthesized textures suggests a dualism between guards old and new. She walks a balance, and the results speak volumes.” – Venus Zine

“Campbell creates eerie auras of dislocated symphonic elements, effects, and muffled hip-hop beats, at the center of which is always Campbell's highly capable and slightly jazzy singing voice.” – Seattle Stranger

“Sleeping Patterns wastes no time introducing Anomie Belle’s haunting voice, beautiful and is bursting with sound.” – Sound Magazine
Toby Campbell: Programming, Vox, Keys, Violin, Guitar
Eric Otteson: Drums
Dana Feder: Cello

Band: Anomie Belle
Album: Sleeping Patterns
Released: November 2, 2008

Anomie Belle’s debut album, Sleeping Patterns, has been receiving widespread airplay and is in rotation at over 300 radio stations throughout the U.S. (promoted by AAM).

Tine Bruhn moved to New York City in 2001 after having graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since then she has performed at some of the city’s best music venues including The Jazz Standard and The Cutting Room. Once a month Tine and her group of outstanding musicians perform at the well-know jazz club Zinc Bar in downtown Manhattan.
Born in 1978, Tine grew up belonging to the Danish minority in Flensburg, Germany. At the age of 15 she founded the a cappella group "Kvart I Fire" which gained high recognition in Denmark and Germany, especially after its release of the CD "Go 4 it" in 1996. The group kept an average of 3 performances a week during their high school years and they were requested at many official functions as well as private parties. Additionally Tine sang in classical choirs including the highly renowned semi-professional youth choir “Landes Jugend Chor Schleswig Holstein” and “Jugend Kammer Chor Flensburg”. Around that time she discovered her passion for jazz and started getting solo gigs.
In Boston she continued performing in a cappella settings, one of them being the "Vocal Jazz Ensemble" under the direction of Sharon Broadley-Martin, a Vox One member. She studied with Sheryl Bentyne from Manhattan Transfer, Walter Beasley, recording artist, Richard Evans, Grammy award winning arranger, and legendary scat educator Bob Stoloff.
