Wildly original, melodic and passionate, Carolyn Striho’s music has been described as being written “from the silver edge of midnight” (All-Music Guide, USA). Regarded as one of the city’s best singer/songwriters, Carolyn has a strong reputation for charismatic, high-energy performances on guitar and keyboards. From her early days in Detroit to her current evocative music, Carolyn’s alluring vocal delivery with a powerful rock and roll folk eclectic sound hypnotizes the listener and audience.
Carolyn was on the Grammy Awards First Ballot 2022 for Best Spoken Word Album (“Detroit/Maiden Energy”) and Grammy Awards First Ballot 2018 for Best Rock Album (“Afterthought”) She has received Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Songwriter and more.
Carolyn was just featured in “Hit Girls: Women in Punk in the USA “about ground-breaking females in music. And Carolyn and her guitarist/husband Scott Dailey were just named one of the country’s top unsigned bands by L.A’s Music Connection Magazine.
She’s toured with Patti Smith in Michigan, through Toronto and England. Carolyn’s performed with Don Was, Was (Not Was) in her band Detroit Energy Asylum, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, The Slits, The Ramones, Iggy Pop, in London, U.K. with Yoko Ono, Steve Earle, Tori Amos, Sinead O’Connor and much more. Her new album is coming out in 2023 and she’ll debuting new songs at live shows.
Scott Dailey’s renowned, magical guitar playing, great vocals and renowned songwriting has led Scott to receiving Detroit Music Awards and a Billboard Magazine award. Scott has played everywhere from Detroit to northern Michigan to Nashville and in the U.K. and Italy. Scott’s career spans from The Stingrays to shows with Nick Lowe and many more.
Scott is a talented, respected artist with a delightful energy onstage and in his songwriting. He continues to garner critical acclaim for his music, as Scott learned to play guitar at a young age. As Inner Door Music recently said of Scott’s style “With a great voice, rough and soulful, inviting, and warm, Scott writes songs that resonate with the audience. These are strong, heartfelt melodies that completely engage the listener. And when Scott starts singing, people stop talking and listen.”
The Metro Times said: “So Much Time to Burn is his five-track solo EP, and it’s very, very good. “Game of Hearts” is the first track and the best. It’s a husky, poignant rocker reminiscent of Johnny Thunders’ “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory.”
Scott is currently writing new songs for a new album and working with Carolyn Striho on their latest album with their band.
Recipient of the Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Americana Songwriter, Mary McGuire has a myriad of influences and growing up in 70’s Detroit and getting schooled by the jocks at America’s first underground radio stations had a major influence on her early musical education.
Matt Harmon of the Detroit Metro Times shares “she seemingly shifts genres at will….” chalk that up to being an avid listener, studying music while living, writing, recording and performing across America.
Joe Montague of Riveting Riffs Magazine writes, “Michigan singer-songwriter and musician Mary McGuire may be one of the most underappreciated, yet most gifted artists in America today.”
Mary’s evolution as a songwriter came from the rock influences in industrial Detroit, gentler folk influences from the shores of Martha’s Vineyard and the country rhythm of the horses clipping along on the car-free streets of Mackinac Island, absorbing all of this is what influences her and defines her characteristic songwriting style. Expect a glimpse of these very influences gleaned from the Upper Midwest to the East Coast and back in this listening room.
Jason Charboneau plays cello and guitar in Moody Blues great John Lodge’s band. He released his first solo album, Troubled, in 2021. He’s played with Macomb, Pontiac Oakland and Warren symphony orchestras, toured as a member of Ethan Daniel Davidson’s band, and was part of the bands Merge and the Mutes. His love of British Blues Rock is evident on his album.
