"There's little he can't do, and do well." -- allmusic.com.
Through over 1,000 gigs and nearly 800 sessions, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/producer Adam Marsland has explored every facet of life as a musician. From his rough and tumble years touring with punk-pop band Cockeyed Ghost through his travels as a DIY trouabour to his current role as producer, session musician and label owner, Adam has never stopped growing, exploring and expanding.
After helping to spearhead the "pop underground" scene in mid '90s Los Angeles, Adam and Cockeyed Ghost were signed to Rykodisc-distributed indie Big Deal in 1996. Constant touring, shows with Redd Kross, Shonen Knife, Fastball and Third Eye Blind, an appearance in an NBC TV movie and on the cover of the L.A. Weekly followed, as did four albums, each more critically acclaimed than the last.
Following the bankruptcy of Big Deal, and anticipating big changes in the music industry, Adam changed focus. Using primitive crowdsourcing and social networking years before it was commonplace, he became self-sufficient as a recording and touring musician. He founded the Karma Frog label to tour and promote his albums. He was constantly on the road from 2000-2003, 2008-2010, and 2013-14, and a cult following supported the tours and Adam's new recordings.
The Beach Boys-oriented Long Promised Road (2007) CD in collaboration with soul legend Evie Sands and Grammy winners Alan Boyd and Mark Linett became a collector's item and missed a Grammy nomination itself by a few votes. Even more impressively, his next two albums Daylight Kissing Night (2008) and Go West (2009) achieved an eye-popping #34 and #22, respectively, on Amazon.com's sales chart. The stylistically diverse Go West, a song cycle spread over two discs, was Adam's high water mark as a songwriter. The next album, the satirical Hello Cleveland (2010), was recorded in less than eight hours by Adam's touring band.
After working with '60s session musicians from the legendary Wrecking Crew, Adam began to focus more and more on sideman and studio work. He also joined another legendary '60s group, The Standells, as co-lead singer and guitarist until his increasing studio workload forced him to quit the band in 2011. Adam opened his own studio in his garage, also named Karma Frog, around this time and it quickly became a mecca for artists who wanted to take advantage of Adam's analog-era musical abilities and ear for arrangement and harmony. He also performed marathon 50+ song concerts with his virtuoso Chaos Band (featuring Sands, bassist Teresa Cowles [whose work with the Chaos Band earned her a spot in the Brian Wilson biopic Love and Mercy playing groundbreaking bassist Carol Kaye) and Cockeyed Ghost drummer Kurt Medlin) in Los Angeles.
He finally returned to his own music with a new album, The Owl And The Full Moon, in 2013, and followed it up with three major tours with stops all over the U.S. and the world. In 2015, Adam announced he would expand the Karma Frog label to promote and release albums by outside artists produced at the Karma Frog studio. He then returned to Europe for 12 shows, including several with his new project Pacific Soul Ltd., before returning to the U.S. to oversee the expansion of Karma Frog, which released two Adam-produced CDs in the second half of 2015 to retail, radio and press.
Adam's range and output are staggering. He has embarked on nearly 30 tours covering three continents. He is a credited musician on 50 CDs and on a dozen different instruments, as well as being an acknowledged expert on harmony vocals and a disciple of the Beach Boys' recording style, though he has also dabbled in power pop, soul, roots rock and punk in his 20 year career. He has recorded 11 official albums as featured artist, and as many more in rarities and limited edition discs. As a producer, he is credited with 20 full-length CDs, most recently the upcoming new album Back In The Garage by founding Beach Boy David Marks.
As a musician and producer, he has performed or tracked with members of the Beach Boys, Earth Wind and Fire, Three Dog Night, Badfinger, X, Faster Pussycat, The GAP Band, plus Davie Allan, Carnie and Wendy Wilson, Paul Collins, The Honeys, Trotsky Icepick, Wondermints, 2008 Tony Award Winner Stew, Ronnie Mack, plus cameo appearances with Counting Crows, Brian Wilson, Julia Fordham, Matthew Sweet, and Stan Ridgway, to name just a few of the literally hundreds of artists Adam has played alongside over the years.
Spooner Oldham- Organ
Spooner Oldham, with Dan Penn and Duane Allman, helped craft the rock-solid rhythms and passionate performances of the "Muscle Shoals Sound" emanating from the northwest corner of the state of Alabama where he was born and raised. A grittier, funkier version of Southern soul, their sound was also called "deep soul and it revolutionized rhythm blues in the 1960's.
Oldham released his own album, Potluck In the early '70s and his songs have been consistently recorded by well-known artists like Janis Joplin ("A Woman Left Lonely"), The Box Tops ("Cry Like A Baby"), James and Bobby Purify (I'm Your Puppet"), and Shirley Caesar ("Jesus, Is Only A Prayer Away"). He's collaborated on songwriting with Hal Newman ("He's Only A Prayer Away"), John Prine ("Me, Myself and I"), Dan Penn ("Out of Left Field”) was covered by Hank Williams, Jr.
He's recorded with Aretha Franklin, Jackson Browne, Joe Cocker, and The Everly Brothers. Oldham has played and toured Nell Young for the past 27 years, Over his four decade career Spooner Oldham’s contributed to numerous award-winning, and top-charted albums/songs while working as a studio musician in Alabama, (Memphis & Nashville) Tennessee and California with some of the most talented musicians in the business (Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Kate Campbell, Gram Parsons & The Flying Burrito Brothers, Hank Williams, Jr., B.J. Thomas, Bob Seger, John Prine,
Charlie Rich, Ronnie Milsap, and Townes Van Zandt, just to name a few). Although his organ/piano appearances have made him party to many a record's Grammy nomination, he'll be most familiar to our readers for his keyboard work with Bob Dylan on Saturday Night Live (October 20, 1979), the Grammy Awards (February 27, 1980) the Saved album (recorded February 1980) and the nearly 80 live shows in support of Slow Train Coming and Saved. To this day Spooner Oldham continues to work as a songwriter, producer and all-around “road warrior.” Watch for his contributions on recent projects from Dishwalla, Frank Black, as well as his continued collaboration and tour support for Neil Young’s Prairie Wind Project.
Caleb Quaye- Songwriter
The son of a Big Band leader, young Caleb learned to play the guitar, drums and bass as he worked his way in to the music business. He first met Elton (then Reg Dwight) in 1965, when they were both employees at music companies in London’s Tin Pan Alley. Soon after, Caleb got a job at Dick James Music (DJM), and eventually came to run the in-house studio there, engineering demos for the publishing company and working with The Beatles, Pete Townshend, and many other artists of the day.
Caleb promoted staff writers Elton John and Bernie Taupin to Dick James when it was discovered he had surreptitiously been recording their demos after hours. It was this support that eventually led to Dick James signing the pair to a recording contract, and Caleb continued on to play guitar on Elton’s official recordings at DJM, including his first singles (which Caleb also produced) and debut album, Empty Sky.
Caleb released his own single, Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad b/w Woman of Distinction, on Philips Records in 1967 and briefly played with Bluesology before focusing more on his band Hookfoot, which acted as Elton’s backing band on stage and in the studio while trying to secure a recording contract of their own. Hookfoot was the core band on Empty Sky and Tumbleweed Connection, as well as the Long John Baldry album, It Ain’t Easy, which Elton co-produced.
Caleb also appeared on the Elton John album, and credits Elton with writing the lyrics to Border Song‘s third verse especially about him. Caleb, along with Elton and Roger Pope, was also a member of The Bread and Beer Band, which released one single in 1969.
Hookfoot was signed to A&M Records and released four albums before breaking up in 1974. The following year, Elton asked Caleb to join his new band, which premiered at Wembley Stadium in June and over the next year or so recorded two albums and played historic dates at Dodger Stadium and Madison Square Garden, amongst others.
Caleb wrote Your Starter For… (Based on a warm-up piece he developed for the guitar work he did) and co-wrote Between Seventeen And Twenty, Boogie Pilgrim and The Wide Eyed And Laughing on the album Blue Moves. His last appearance with Elton was as a guest during the encores of Elton’s show at the Universal Amphitheater in LA in 1986.
In 1978, Caleb, Kenny Passarelli, and Roger Pope joined Hall and Oates (appearing on their album Along The Red Ledge) and in 1980 Caleb and Roger were in a Los Angeles funk band called Troops, which was to be Caleb’s last rock band.
In 1982, Caleb embraced the Christian faith, becoming a musician/evangelist. From 1986-95, Quaye was an Associate Pastor, Chief Musician and Staff Evangelist at the Foursquare Church in Pasadena, California. Since 1996, Quaye has served as the National Worship Director for the Foursquare denomination, ministering throughout the United States, England and Europe.
In 2006, Caleb wrote his autobiography, A Voice Louder Than Rock & Roll.

Brian Forbes Powell- Photography
It's an odd thing being faced with publishing an "about" page. It's supposed to sound like it's written by my agent, but I don't have an agent. However, if I did have an agent, s/he might say:
Brian Powell is a pretty lucky guy. He gets incredible support, inspiration and love from his amazing family, friends, and communities. He feels fortunate to pursue photography for no other reason than it brings him joy and a deeper connection to people and the natural world. He intends his photographs convey an appreciation for being alive.
And because appreciation pays many (but not all) bills, he is also available for hire in and around (and sometime far away from) Tucson, Arizona.
Recently, Nikon Inc., in partnership with National Geographic, announced Brian Forbes Powell of Tucson, Ariz., as the grand-prize winner of “The Full Story” photo contest. Powell’s submission, “Test of Resiliency: Land and Ranchers in Arizona's Borderland Region,” was shot with the new FX-format Nikon D600 D-SLR camera and was chosen from among five first-prize winners. As the grand-prize winner, Powell will accompany National Geographic Traveler magazine’s Andrew Evans, also known as the Digital Nomad, on a National Geographic Expeditions trip to the Galápagos Islands next month.
Powell’s winning submission was composed of 19 still images with descriptive captions, a short essay, and an additional video slideshow. The winning story was chosen by a panel of qualified Nikon representatives for the compelling nature of its visual story, its creativity and its photographic quality.
“This is a story about land, the family ranchers who make their living from that land and whether the resiliency of each is sufficient to withstand the numerous challenges — both old and new — that threaten the environmental and cultural fabric of this rural landscape,” Powell wrote in his submission.
Jimmy Nutt- Producer, Engineer
