**ABOUT THE ARTISTS**

Everclear

Everclear is an American rock band formed in Portland, Oregon, in 1991.The band was formed by Art Alexakis, the band’s lead songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist, and for most of the band’s height of popularity, consisted of Craig Montoya on bass guitar and Greg Eklund on drums. After the limited release of their independently released debut album, World of Noise, the band found success with their first three albums on Capitol Records: Sparkle and Fade, So Much for the Afterglow, and Songs from an American Movie Vol. One: Learning How to Smile, which were all certified platinum in sales. However, the following two albums Songs from an American Movie Vol. Two: Good Time for a Bad Attitude and Slow Motion Daydream, were not as well received, and as sales suffered, Montoya and Eklund left the band shortly after in 2003.

After a brief stint of solo performances, Alexakis decided to push forward with the Everclear name, finding new musicians with which to perform and releasing two more albums, Welcome to the Drama Club and Invisible Stars. In 2012, Alexakis started a 1990s nostalgia tour, named the Summerland Tour, which occurs every summer with Everclear and other 1990s alternative rock bands. In April 2015, the band released a ninth studio album, entitled Black is the New Black. A live album, Live At The Whisky A Go Go, was released on September 8, 2023 via Sunset Blvd Records.

Marcy Playground

The band is named after the Marcy Open School in Minneapolis, which is the alternative school John Wozniak attended. He chose the name because many of his songs were inspired by his childhood. Marcy Playground emerged in the late 1990s. Influences include David Bowie, Paul Simon, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Wham! and the Beatles.[citation needed] Frontman John Wozniak’s first effort, Zog BogBean – From the Marcy Playground, was self-produced, recorded in his bedroom studio with some help from his then-girlfriend Sherry Fraser and her brother Scott in the early nineties. A limited run of CDs were self-released by Wozniak. “Our Generation” and “Dog and His Master”, two songs found on Wozniak’s Zog BogBean project, would appear on later Marcy Playground albums. As of April 2009, Zog BogBean was available for download at Marcy Playground’s official site as well as other outlets such as iTunes.

Jimmie’s Chicken Shack

Jimmie’s Chicken Shack is an American alternative rock band from Annapolis, Maryland. They are best known for their single “High”. In 1996 they signed to Elton John’s Rocket Records and released two major-label albums, Pushing the Salmanilla Envelope and Bring Your Own Stereo. Both LPs enjoyed minor chart, radio, and MTV success and produced their best known hits “High” and “Do Right.” After years of squabbling with their label and finally being set free from their contract, the band subsequently released two more albums independently, Re.Present and Fail on Cue.
