First Concert: Escondido

Hailing from Nashville, Escondido, Jessica Maros and Tyler James, recorded their 2013 debut album, The Ghost of Escondido, live in a single day.

After the band’s extensive touring in support of The Ghost of Escondido, Maros and Tyler decided that they needed some time apart. Their distance is depicted on Walking With A Stranger, the group’s second studio album, which will be released on its own label, Kill Canyon, in February 2016. Ms. Maros said, “This record’s lyrics describe the loneliness you feel when with you’re with someone everyday. The natural tug-of-war between a man and a woman.”  


5 Things About Mike Campbell

Mike Campbell has been Tom Petty’s right-hand man since 1975. Along with Benmont Tench (keyboards), Ron Blair (bass guitar) and Stan Lynch (drums), Mike Campbell is a founding member of The Heartbreakers.

Guitar World stated, “There are only a handful of guitarists who can claim to have never wasted a note. Mike Campbell is certainly one of them.” Throughout his extensive career, Mr. Campbell, the consummate team player, plays solely for the song.
