John Lowery started his career as a singer-songwriter in Portland, Oregon back in the mid-nineties with his first band Hatful of Rain which he formed with Dramarama guitarist Mark Englert. At one time their drummer was Courtney Taylor-Taylor from The Dandy Warhols. His first album with Hatful of Rain got national distribution and radio play and received stellar reviews. Since 2000 John has released all solo albums - Fancy Car, I'm Going Home, and most recently Epiphany which is available for sale on I-Tunes . John has played with some pretty big players over the years including Jeff Linsky (Jazz Virtuoso), John Smith (Grammy Award Producer from Nu Shooz), and Tony Snow (Drummer from Dramarama) to name a few. He currently resides in Oceanside, CA and continues to play shows as a solo artist in his own backyard in San Diego, LA, and Orange County frequently. John plays mainly acoustic melodies with some electric guitar and backbeats with a laid-back feel. Some of his songs sound folksy and some sound rockish, with a little bit of blues & country from time to time. He performs regularly and not only performs songs that he has written, but also songs from such artists as Tom Petty, The Eagles, Rob Thomas, Jimmy Buffet, Rod Stewart, The Beatles, Jack Johnson, and many more. John is also available as a duo with another guitar player or piano player.

Hi there! I'm Evan Diamond, a singer-songwriter based in San Diego. I play as a solo artist but I also play shows as a duo with my friend John Rankin (another GigTown Artist!) and also play venues with my amazing backing band, The Library. We recently played The Mint in LA and have upcoming shows at The Hotel Cafe and The Viper Room. I tour extensively throughout Southern California with gigs in San Diego, Riverside and LA County, averaging between 15 to 20 shows a month! My music spans a number of genres, most notably rock, pop and r&b which definitely makes my songs unique, and in addition to writing my own music, I also play a large number of covers from artists such The Beatles, Carole King, David Bowie, The Spice Girls, Fifth Harmony, Ed Sheeran, Christina Aguilera, Amy Whinehouse and The 1975. You can find a full list of my cover songs on my website epk page: evandiamondmusic.com/epk but keep in mind that list is always growing! One of the things I feature in my shows is my use of live looping! Check out my website, for video and audio examples of my work! My band and I are currently working on our first EP which will be available shortly! Donations are greatly appreciated and are accepted both through GigTown and my website. I play private parties, weddings, fundraisers and more so I hope you will consider me for your next event! Below is a partial list of venues I've performed at recently.

I will travel to an event outside the San Diego area depending on the details and what is required. Michael LeClerc is a Canadian singer/songwriter with a style reminiscent of Van Morrison, Dave Matthews or Jack Johnson. His sweet and soulful voice penetrates deeply, with a dream-like quality against an acoustic guitar that drifts between deftly executed finger-style to jangly strumming, and segues easily from love ballad to upbeat rocker. Currently located in Southern California, he is carving a niche for himself up and down the west coast, playing wineries, clubs and songwriter showcases from San Diego to Vancouver, Canada. Fiercely independent, Michael has been playing since the age of seven, and always knew that music was his calling. Growing up in the rural, blue-collar community of Chatham, Ontario fueled his wanderlust, but like many artists, there were several turns in the road before he made the decision to commit to music full time. Some of his early vocations included picking tobacco and working in a corn mill, eventually leading him to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Business Development. After a few years living in Ireland and working with several prestigious hotels, he moved to the Cayman Islands, where his band Smooth Bill had the opportunity to open for top Canadian band The Tragically Hip in front of several thousand people. He has since played to many large audience, including the Twilight Concert Series in Del Mar, CA, andis just as comfortable playing on a big stage as his is to an intimate listening room audience. In 2011, he released his first solo EP with producer Jim Wirt (Fiona Apple, Incubus, Hoobastank), titled Radio. Local terrestrial and internet radio began to pick up on the title track, leading to a three-month tour of California that soon segued into a permanent move. 2015 saw the release of a new self-titled EP, and he has been a featured performer in Renaissance Hotels’ RLife concert series, a program that in the past has hosted artists like Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke. Drawing comparisons to James Taylor, Jackson Brown and John Mayer, Michael’s instant appeal and warm stage presence invites the audience to come closer and listen to what he has to say.
