Born in the traditional, if traditionally obscure fashion, Misdirection front man Brent Curtis’ musical interests, and talents, have progressed well beyond blowing out amps in the family garage. Following a representative rock-star path, Brent’s initial foray was a punk project influenced by Blink 182, Green Day and many of the high-energy, extreme-volume bands of the day. Brent conveys his love for the craft in every story he weaves, nurtures and delivers. Clever lyrics and song titles augment a wealth of pure talent and genuine understanding of and appreciation for music. Brent maintains the same passion that drove him to pick up his first guitar, if he is perhaps a bit less compelled to smash it into kindling.

Perfect for: Events looking for Emerging Artists who play original music. House Concerts or Private Parties. Open to most Venues and Occasions.

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.
