Evan Bartels is a songwriter who's inspiration comes from a rural upbringing and features raw sounds that are true to the traditions of American music.
Evan is a singer, songwriter, and a story teller. Along with his band, The Stoney Lonesomes, quality songwriting takes first priority.
Hailing from Southeast Nebraska, Bartels' and his band of brothers are making honest, hard hitting, Americana Rock that is not easily forgotten.
Staying true to the sounds of a rural lifestyle, the band is fearless in it's presentation of the human experience. The Stoney Lonesomes do not shy away from topics and stories in songs that deal with real life tragedy, heartbreak, growth, and love.
The current line up was established in 2016 and the debut album titled: "The Devil, God, & Me" will tentatively be released early in 2017.
Brad Stewart began his comedy career shortly after moving to Los Angeles from Nebraska in 1995.
He has performed at many clubs and theaters all over the country to rave reviews. In 2010 Brad had the honor of becoming a favorite opening act for comedy legend Joan Rivers. Joan said Brad is "so talented and a joy to work with" Brad has also opened for The Temptations, Jon Lovitz, Keith Sweat, Rob Schneider, The O'Jays, Barry Manilow, and 80's rockers Loverboy. In 2012 Brad was picked by TV Icon Marlo Thomas as a "Comedian to Watch" for the Huffington Post.
Brad's comedy is a mix of his observations about life and his love/hate relationship with pop culture. Music is a big love of Brad's and a lot of his comedy comes from his frustrations with the state of popular music which should be relatable to anyone with ears.
