  • Biography Tito Ramsey’s creations are a synergy of aggressive pop, electronica, and soul, often drawing comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Little Richard. His solo show features guitar, keys, vocals, live beat sequencing, recordings of found sounds and spontaneous bodily eruptions. Tito has played shows in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona and in many cities around the US. He has shared the stage with various well-known musicians, from The Head and the Heart to jazz great Yusef Lateef. Tito is set to release his third album, Hi Lo EP, in January 2012. Named at birth Erin Ramsey, a family friend from Spain called him “Erintito” (little Erin) and “Tito” stuck. Tito’s parents educated him through an exploratory method of home-schooling, allowing him to learn the piano on his own through improvisation and not forcing him to wear clothing until a very late age. Tito’s family comes from a religious background, as both of his grandfathers were preachers and both of his grandmothers toured the country singing gospel music, but Tito took his own route allowing music to guide his pursuits. In college Tito studied modern jazz and composition, allowing him the opportunity to study with Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, most well-known for writing string arrangements for Marvin Gaye. Since then, he has collaborated with hordes of talented musicians writing music for film and theater, rock bands and a string quartet. But, in 2007, the loss of a dear friend left Tito searching. He focused his energy on exploring new ways to make music, collecting electronic instruments, and honing a new sound. He has seamlessly blended this new obsession with electronica and his older soulful writing. And now he can’t stop dancing.

  • Biography Anti-folkers The Foghorns began in Brooklyn in 2001 with Bart Cameron bringing songs written in Wisconsin to New York for various strange performances, mainly with the help of Brooklyn bluegrass band The Cobble Hillbillies. When Bart moved to Iceland in 2003 as a Fulbright Fellow, he revamped the band and toured Iceland using the moniker. In Iceland, Bart released a bucket and guitar folk album, So Sober. The band, still with bucket percussion, performed across Iceland including performing twice at Iceland Airwaves, at Innipukinn, and more than a 100 other performances across the island. In 2006, Bart moved to Seattle, Washington. With Katie and Rich Quigley, the band recorded "A Diamond as Big as the Motel Six" in 2009. The tour that supported that CD took the band to Iceland, England, Scotland, Denmark and Sweden, along with a 42-stop cross country US tour. In 2011, The Foghorns released their seventh full length CD, and it is their first full-length LP on vinyl. The lineup is: Bart Cameron, Jason Kopec (a converted taiko drummer performing on pots, pans, and sometimes drums), and accordionist/ pianist Peter Colclasure, along the BUCKET OF BOURBON CHOIR (Colin J. Nelson, Matt Ploszaj, David Rossman, and Laurel Hoffman).
