These are real songs, about real experiences, as solid and as earthy as his log cabin in the woods near Huntsville. His songs are well-crafted acoustic, country/folk tunes, easy to listen and relate to, and range from gentle folk, through catchy country to wanna-get-up-and-dance blues or bluegrass style.  The CD is called "No Second Chance"

April 30 -  Timothy John Robert
First off, he’s very entertaining.  His energy while entertaining is phenomenal.  His musical style is probably best described as rocking alternative/folk.

Based in Toronto, TJR has been playing and singing in the GTA for a few years. He writes about his life experiences, and events that strike him as song-worthy. His wry sense of humour is readily found in his lyrics.

Easily recognizable as he marches down the street, guitar slung over his back and his wooden walking staff in his hand ... his black hat perched on his head. He cuts a colourful figure.

No event with TJR will be dull, we can guarantee that!

May 28 Julie Long and Keith Addison
This talented songwriting duo brings you a pot pourrie of delightful, original material.

You will love how these two blend their voices and create amazing harmonies. Julie's sweet contralto is a heartbreaker.  Julie and Keith both write their own material, but recently got together to collaborate on some songs. These artists have a knack for really good collabortative writing, and we think they are going to go places.  From what we've heard so-far, they know how to produce good lyrics and tunes with great hooks.

We can't wait to hear their own individual material as well....

June 11 - Brian Gladstone

A self-starter, Brian single handedly promoted his first CD, getting airplay all over Europe, his next CD followed and he was soon getting that played all over the place.

His songs are whimsical and relate to his life or things that matter to him.  His guitar picking is terrific and he has really good presentation skills, which make him a very entertaining performer.

It's always a pleasure to have Brian at Outrageous, since he's the most Outrageous host/performer of all!

June 25 -  Dorothy Cooley
"When you've been influenced by both Roger Miller and Carole King, it's no wonder I sound like a soulful hillbilly," Cooley claims. "I would say my genre is more like Mid-life Crisis Folk." Hailing from southwest Michigan Cooley makes frequent trips to the greater Toronto area to sing, finding great support for her style of playing and lyrical delivery. A mother of four with two sons currently serving in Iraq, Cooley can look out her living room window and write about the world. A featured performance you'll not want to miss.
