MEET THE ARTISTS
Coleman Woodson Jr.
Coleman Woodson is a native of Selma, Ala., a gigging musician, and a music educator. As a young man and developing saxophonist, he was a Civil Rights activist. Today, he is frequently called upon to help commemorate and celebrate the struggle for equality and justice, playing oft-requested freedom songs and hymns in the jazz vernacular. He’s the president of the Alabama Jazz & Blues Federation, and devotes a great deal of time bringing jazz and blues acts to Montgomery venues and getting young people involved in music education.
Dave P Moore was just 11 when his mother gave him his first harmonica. That harmonica took Dave P across the country and into recording sessions with world-class musicians like Rolling Stones bassist Darryl Jones and Dr. John. As a founding member of Blues Old Stand, Dave P drew crowds and loyal followers with his harmonica and funky, rhythmic vocals. He now resides in Louisiana, tending a farm, earning a living playing on recording sessions, and performing with his bands Blues Heals and Bluesaholics.
Josh Carples is a musician, actor, filmmaker, and photographer based in Montgomery, Ala. The singer-songwriter has released four studio albums, three singles, a live EP, and a number of accompanying music videos. He is also the drummer for the band Towering Above and composes film scores under the moniker Glorious 70mm.
Neal Lucas hails from Talbot County, Ga. The singer-songwriter’s music is as eclectic as his following. He writes, produces and records his own music, and has played with too many bands to mention.
Megan McMillian is an Americana artists who’s found her niche with her honest, edgy take on traditional American music. Her writing can be humorous, deep, poetic, and intense. Following the release of two EPs, “Potter’s Field” and “Can’t I Say My Mind,” Megan released her full-length album Things That Change, all showcasing her warm-textured vocals and fun-loving style.
