In her hometown of San Diego Whitney Shay has been honored to win 5 San Diego Music Awards (including “Artist of The Year”), and a San Diego CityBeat Magazine "Best Of" Award. Abroad Shay has toured extensively throughout Europe and South America, and was nominated for a national Blues Music Award in 2019. In 2020 Shay’s album Stand Up! debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues charts. Shay has received high praise from music critics calling the singer “a future blues icon” (Blues Matters!), “one of the next best things in soul music” (Blues and Rhythm Magazine), and “the epitome of a rising star” (Elmore Magazine). Shay’s tracks have been placed in TV/film, including shows on NBC, Fox, HBO, Bravo, BET, Hulu, and Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral. JUICEBOX - 8PM Juice Box is a San Diego based project fronted by drummer/composer Matthew Smith. Smith had this to say about the group, "I bought a suitcase rhodes from craigslist and took one whole month and wrote one song per day, with no real project in mind. I then took what songs I felt had the most impact and formed the group." At it's core Juice Box is an instrumental group, yet on the B side of it's debut and self titled release it features a San Francisco based vocalist "Lewis Gallardo" singing his song, Heartbreak Reprise. With a wide variety of influences that span from Hendrix to Hancock this group is truly one that is pushing the funk, soul and jazz boundaries. Live shows highlight a steady pocket while exploring the depths of the group's collective improvisation.
