Thomas Wynn & the Believers
Thomas Wynn & the Believers
Thomas Wynn & The Believers personifies rugged, yet uplifting spirited rock, sprinkled with southern soul R&B. Tunes brutally honest & heartfelt, the themes go beyond years of drugs, heartbreaks & hypocrisy to deliver a message of hope.

“Soulful, gritty tunes, some as sweet as honeysuckle and others ferociously jagged ...reminiscent of Levon Helm, Neil Young and the Allman Brothers, but they still boldly radiate a sound and southern charm all their own.” Metromix

A combination of blistering rock and southern soul, this fiery ensemble has been playing the Orlando, Florida original music circuit for the last three-plus years and have quickly garnered local celebrity status. Hailing from a musical family, the
band is heavily influenced by Thomas and Olivia's father, Tom Wynn, who was the drummer for Cowboy. Through out the 70’s, Cowboy toured with the Allman Brothers Band, and released four albums on the legendary Capricorn Records.Thomas’ spirit-moving vocals are uniquely supported by sister Olivia Wynn’s engaging and captivating voice and presence. Her strong vocal
harmonies and wide-eyed response is the perfect companion to his yearning banshee cries.

Known for their powerful LIVE performances, TWTB have delighted audiences of all sizes, including festival goers at Bear Creek, Orlando Calling, Magnolia Fest, Bear Creek, Orlando Calling, Blackwater Music Festival, BamaJam, Tropical Heatwave, Antiwarpt, Pojo Music Fest and FMFs. The group has also shared the stage with national acts Gov't Mule, Blackberry Smoke, The Dirty Guv'nahs, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Drivin' N' Cryin', Leon Russell, Drive-By Truckers, Donna The Buffalo, Leftover Salmon, JJ Grey & Mofro, Medeski, Martin & Wood,
Honey Island Swamp Band, Cross Canadian Ragweed, The Lee Boys, Charlie Daniels, and many more.

Luke Rathborne
Luke Rathborne
Rathborne had been making music since his early teens - playing in high school punk bands, and sneaking into the local college radio station at night to record his own music. By age 18, his hunger for a larger scene to immerse himself in was palpable.

After moving to New York, Rathborne started his own small label True Believer in order to self-release tracks (independently garnering over 9 million streams on Spotify), and booking his own shows across the city. Early attention from press came – Noisey, Vogue, Nylon, Interview Magazine, and Billboard have all written about him, with SPIN describing the most recent release as “channeling the garage-rock sludge of Ty Segall and resurrecting the melodic charms of R.E.M.”
Mercy Choir
Mercy Choir is the songwriting and recording project of New Haven, CT based musician Paul Belbusti. Over the past decade, Paul has produced a large quantity of critically acclaimed music ranging from abstract experiments to more traditional pop and rock and roll. Mercy Choir has released two albums in 2017, the sprawling, experimental "Like a Fountain Stirred" and the minimal, psych-folk "Fair Games." These albums are Belbusti's best and most adventurous work to date.

Mercy Choir as a live band is a shape-shifting entity, with a wide variety of musicians from various backgrounds interpreting Belbusti's songs. The current lineup of Belbusti, Loralee Geil, Bruce Crowder, Chris Zollo, Timothee Goselin, and Brian Slattery is the steadiest and most competent group yet.
