The Rolling Hills with Dale Dixon

Doors 7pm - Show 8pm


The Rolling Hills (guitar player/vocalist/songwriter Barrett Miller and violist Alisa Dyer) owe their collaboration to a 2017 Windwalker Underground Gallery Open Mic night. Their passion for making music together radiates through their performance. 

Barrett is self-taught and has been writing songs since he was a toddler. He started playing guitar at the age of 14 and has developed his unique style within various genres including punk, hard rock, folk, and indie rock. He also plays the piano, bass, clarinet, and drums. A classically trained violist, Alisa has played for most of her life. She enjoys playing all styles of music but very much enjoys slow, sad sounding stuff in an easy key. 

The duo, influenced by Barrett's lyrics, have a sometimes aggressive, sometimes melancholy, sometimes sweet, totally unique sound that is supremely powerful - and a LOT of fun.

Lucas Holliday with Gabe Hammes wsg Clint Dickerson

Tickets $10 - https://bpt.me/3615781

From doo wop to hip hop, and all the soul, jazz, funk, rhythm and blues in between, there isn't much that Lucas has not done with his voice. The Lansing native has been singing since he was just out of diapers, and has been entertaining crowds his whole life at different venues in a wide range of styles. However, no matter what stage he steps on, he feels most at home doing what he loves.

Lucas' most recent venture has involved leading the funky groove band Tell Yo Mama in song for nearly four years, but he has done much more in the last couple. In November of 2016, a week after a video featuring him singing while working at Dollar General went viral across the nation, the 26 year-old singing cashier appeared on Good Morning America. Merely days after that, he joined one of his idols, neo soul legend Maxwell, onstage at The Palace in Auburn Hills before 20,000 guests. And within a year, he was auditioning in L.A., vocalizing for Jennifer Hudson, and competing in the thirteenth season of NBC's The Voice.

After making the top 24 out of 40,000+ contestants, Lucas flew back to Michigan and began pursuing his music career full-time. While he still plays with Tell Yo Mama as his main focus, the soul singer has been perfecting his craft as a solo act for a long time. Despite the challenges of the starving artist's life, this one is eager to stay the course to wherever it may lead him, as long as it always leads him home.

Gabe Hammes is a 13-year-old boy who loves to play music. He plays the guitar, piano, drums, saxophone, and he sings. His goal one day is to tour all around the world and record multiple cd's. He has had many opportunities to play at venues, coffee shops, and church's. He credits Mr. Joshua Hicks and his family for giving him encouragement, love, and lessons. He also credits Clint Dickerson for helping grow his musical career. His first single "Always There" was written about his Grandpa who had died when he was only 4 years old but his memories still and will always have a place in his heart. His is fun and enthusiastic heart that he brings to the stage is something people look forward to when they go to his shows.

Windwalker Presents: Matthew Shannon with Mike Bass & Jonathan Watt

Saturday October 20th
Doors 7 pm / Show 8 pm
$10 Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3582461

Jonathan Watt's music can be described as a blend of soulful Americana and Roots-Rock, with a dash of foot-stompin' Bluegrass, garnished with bluesy harmonica. Jonathan weaves together lyrics to tell well-crafted and insightful stories, from funny and light-hearted to heart-wrenching and fervid. Jonathan has been honing his musical skills for nearly 20 year, playing multiple instruments including fiddle, guitar, upright bass, mandolin and harmonica. He proudly calls Lansing, MI his home!

Forged from the fiery chasm of an autumn campfire somewhere in Michigan, Mike Bass brings you face-melting acoustic tunes. Using a combination of strumming, finger-picking, snapping, elvish rope, and percussion, this singing/songwriting fool will sweep you off your feet in both English and Japanese

Matthew Shannon is a local Lansing musician who has played in various bands over the last 20 years. He is currently an instructor at the Frandor Guitar Center, and teaches pretty much anything with strings on it. Matthew is also embarking on his first attempt at a solo career, with the hopes of working together with the Lansing community to help bring attention to the overwhelming amount of talent within the capital city through collaborations. He considers, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, and Nickel Creek his main influences in his songwriting. You can usually find him at various open-mics in the greater Lansing area.

Lyn Sawicki & Mike Iott

Windwalker Presents: Lyn Sawicki with Michael Iott
Saturday Septmeber 22
Doors 7 pm/ Show 8 pm

Tickets $10: https://bpt.me/3574190
 

Local singer/songwriter Lyn Sawicki is an accomplished songsmith who delivers hard-earned wisdom with earthy emotion. Her songs are good companions for traversing what must be left behind to reach a new life-affirming place. She spins songs like she turns pottery, into practical vessels artfully crafted to carry nourishment for the soul.
Lyn’s melodic and versatile convergence of folk, acoustic and indie originality provide the texture for a collection of lyrical stories about the unfolding of the human heart, and the courage it takes to reclaim lost, neglected or dormant parts of ourselves in the pursuit of completion.

Mike Iott is a long-time singer/songwiter from the greater Lansing area. Formerly preforming and recording as Medicine Crow, he has recently jettisoned that stage name begun using his given name. His original music tends toward the topical rather than the romantic and he writes and sings about all of those "touchy subjects" that we are told to avoid when in polite company.

Brandon Grafius & Steven Trosin

Windwalker Presents: Brandon Grafius and Steven Trosin
Saturday August 18th!! 

Tickets $10
Doors Open at 7 pm show starts at 8 pm

Steve(n) Trosin is a songwriter from a small town in Michigan. He tried giving up music, but after 20+ years, it became apparent that it was easier to just go with it than to fight it. His first full-length album of original songs is near completion and will be released in the fall of 2018.

The songs on Brandon Grafius's second album, Highways and Backroads, all started with a place. It might have been the sky over Sleeping Bear Dunes, the flowing Manistee River, or the freeway from Chicago to Lansing, but all of the songs serve as meditations on our connections with place, what it means to travel from place to place, and why some places arent right for us while others feel like home. Bringing together a wealth of experience in writing and performing, the songs on Highways and Backroads explore the journey of a life, offering an intimate picture of the places that connect us to one another.
