Sandbar 2pm-5pm: Spencer Batt

Born and raised in the hop fields of Idaho's Snake River Valley, Spencer Batt's earthy sound is a direct product of his upbringing. Much time was spent sitting in the back of his father’s pickup truck listening to 60's and 70's rock 'n roll while cruising through the fields. It wasn't until dropping out of concert band and piano lessons that he found his love for guitar at the age of 16. From there he would go on to the University of Idaho where he would start his first band Clearview, and begin the path of singer/songwriter. Upon graduation, Spencer found himself without a proper job secured, but was scraping by playing music. This free spirited attitude turned out to be the catalyst that would ultimately lead to the incarnation of Boise based band Soul Serene. After 4 years of hitting the local scene and touring the northwest, Spencer returned to the University of Idaho to complete a master’s degree. Upon graduation in May 2014, Spencer once again decided to forego a “traditional” career and returned to music. Since then he has played nearly five hundred shows, crafted tens of songs, and has smiled more than the average guy should. Spencer plans to continue his quest in the music business, and hopes to release his eponymous debut on his own record label, Fargo Road Records, in 2016.

--------

Grammy award-winning and Platinum selling artist Suzy Bogguss is one to constantly chase the muse wherever it may lead. She has covered Country, Swing, Jazz, Folk, Americana and Roots music with style and grace. The live performance of her last album, American Folk Songbook, has been lauded by fans, critics and buyers as "a show not to miss!" Suzy's appeal has never wavered and her fan base continues to grow with constant touring around the globe including regular appearances on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion tour and the Grand Ole Opry! 

2014 saw the release of "Lucky", Suzy's latest album and a heartfelt homage to the songwriting of Merle Haggard. "He really is the poet of the common man," says Bogguss of the man who is at the center of her new album. Some may recall she kicked off her career with 1989's "Somewhere Between," her debut album named after one of Haggard's early songs. "Not every artist has music that is as universal as Merle's. It's pretty heavy-duty stuff, and I think that's why to so many of us who sing and write songs, he's such a king among us." 

Bogguss dove deeper into Haggard's catalog, taking care to hold on to that original vision of finding songs that resonated with her not just pulling out and recycling the hits. The result is a modern record with a classic vibe, featuring jewels like "Silver Wings," "The Bottle Let Me Down," "If We Make It Through December," "I Think I'll Just Stay Here And Drink" and many more. Merle has given her the big thumbs up on this project and Suzy embarked on international tour to support the album. Rolling Stone magazine included her in The Top 48 Things We Saw At SXSW 2014 and said "She's as country as they come." She truly is an artist that knows no boundaries and always leaves everyone wondering what she'll do next!

I didn't know what all of it meant but I knew it moved me!" Inspired by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Isaac Hayes, and Teddy Pendergrass, just to name a few, Shon began his journey finding his own soulful voice. The many influences of all the different genres of music that surrounded him in his youth can be found in Shon's unique sound.

Griffin House was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. He picked up the guitar when he was 18, started writing songs right away, and within a couple years started making records and performing live. 

In August 2004, House was featured on the CBS Sunday Morning show, music journalist Bill Flanagan (MTV/VH1) raved about Lost and Found (House's first nationally released record), putting the newcomer on his short list of the best emerging songwriters in the U.S. "I bought House's CD after a show in New York City," said Flanagan, "and this never happens: I took it home and must have listened to it 20 times that weekend. I was knocked out. 

Several self-released albums followed, and in 2008 House released Flying Upside Down, produced by Jeff Trott and featuring Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. House has toured extensively, opening for the Cranberries, Josh Ritter, John Mellencamp, Ron Sexsmith, Patti Scialfa, Mat Kearney, and many more.

Searching for the shaman that lives inside the guitar has led Willy Porter on a musical and personal odyssey spanning over two decades, 10 albums, and multiple continents. His journey remains defined by an independent drive to evolve as a musician and human, affording him the freedom to create the next song on his own terms. Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Porters songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar driven events- equal parts grit, soul, and muscle -that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Porters voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.

On his latest disc, Human Kindness (2015), Porter brings all of his acoustic, electric, and multi-string chops to bear in service of a great collection of songs. This al-bum is a driving, tuneful return to the pop sensibilities of his best work that also showcases Porters growth as a writer, musician, and producer.
