Our Last Show In April Featured...
Frankie White is a 22 year old pianist, guitarist and singer/songwriter who was born and raised in the small town of Colchester Vermont. She currently resides in New Orleans.
Growing up, Frankie was drawn to melancholic and simple sounds from the likes of Ingrid Michaelson, Birdy, and Cloves. She also was heavily influenced by 90s rock bands such as Weezer, Marcy Playground, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Local H.
As a result of being inspired mainly by these two styles, Frankie's music is unique as she brings both soft, melancholic piano and rock music together to form her own sound.
Her top musical influences are Ingrid Michaelson, Death Cab For Cutie, Birdy and Weezer.
Todd Lemoine is a singer/songwriter who resides in Covington, Louisiana. He has recorded 5 albums and played with many notable musicians and bands, such as Dax Riggs and Dash Rip Rock. In 2001, Todd had a top 20 radio hit in Australia with his song "One Way Mirror.” He has recorded albums with such renowned engineers as Dave Fortman (Godsmack), Gene Foster (Kansas), and Ben Mumphry (The Pixies).
Presently, Todd is composing songs for movie soundtracks and recording a new album. He frequently performs solo acoustic shows in the Greater New Orleans area and has played at popular venues such as The House of Blues, Whiskey a Go-Go, Howlin Wolf, One-Eyed Jacks, Varsity Theatre, and Vinyl Music Hall.
Mark Carson has been writing songs and performing for many years. He has played venues and fesivals in New Orleans, Nashville, and elsewhere, including the Bluebird Café, Tipitina’s, and the Maple Leaf, as well as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Frank Brown Songwriting Festival, and the Pardi Gras Festival. He has written over 1500 songs in many genres.
In addition to getting some songs cut by award-winning and successful New Orleans bands such as Papa Grows Funk, in 2009 Mark got his first Nashville country single, Barn on the Rooftop, that was recorded by Ty Williams. He has had over 50 songs recorded by artists in Nashville, New Orleans, and beyond, and has had several singles played on country radio, as well as other songs recorded in the country, pop, funk, and rock genres.
Recently Mark co-wrote three songs from New Orleans artist John "Papa" Gros's latest release, "Central City." He had co-written nine of the eleven songs on John “Papa” Gros’s 2016 release, "River's On Fire."
For more than two decades, Ted Hefko has plied his trade as a saxophonist, clarinetist, singer and strummer of guitars, but first and foremost he is a songsmith, rooted in the blues. His band, Ted Hefko and The Thousandaires, – with Hefko on vocals, guitar and tenor sax – brings raw life lessons and stories – ones of hope and hustlers, saints and strays, drifters and the down-and-out - to life with the rough-hewn tone of backwoods folk, and the raucous vibrancy of classic Louisiana Rhythm and Blues.
Their 2018 album, Gas Station Guru, received high acclaim, streaming on airways across the world. Since that time, Ted and the band have been hard at work on their newest album, Down Below, diving deep and digging into the ups and downs of life. The album features a cross section of New Orleans talent, blending Hefko's jazz and folk roots with a new electric country/Americana sound.
