The son of Greek-American restaurateurs, Alex Maryol grew up in Santa Fe New Mexico surrounded by a lively artistic and cultural landscape. Raised on the music of Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and Elvis Presley, he began songwriting during his teenage years while performing at smoky bars and coffee shops in downtown Santa Fe. While primarily influenced by blues greats such as Lightning Hopkins and Buddy Guy during these years, Alex maintained a love for all musical genres from classical to grunge.
In his early twenties Alex gained notoriety by performing as a blues act at festival favorites such as the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival and the King Biscuit Blues Festival. These years of working in the blues laid a solid foundation for him to expand his ideas in other fields of music.
Performance: Opening musical act for Etta James, Bo Diddley, Ani DiFranco, Michael Franti, Leon Russell, and G. Love and Special Sauce. Telluride Blues Festival for years 2001 through 2008 with other musical guests such as James Brown, Jonny Lang, John Mayer, Otis Taylor and Buddy Miles.
Garry Martin Beasley is a Troubadour of our time, fusing poetry with blues to create a new sound which paints a picture of a life on the road, an ode to gypsy's and vagabonds, a voice for those who have none. Weathered guitars, and sea beaten harmonicas, stomp boxes and tamborine's lend to his soulful and earthy voice which at times is a fiery explosion and others a gentle whisper. His music explores the deep roots of the Delta Blues, his feel is raw and rustic. His sound pays homage to the street musician, a true and seasoned artist of the open road. His passion and involvement as an activist for the environment as well as indigenous rights, and freedom for the poor and working class make there way into his poetic lyrics. This is the blues of a new generation, in times of so much crisis in our world, he is a voice for the oppressed and his music stands for freedom.
He grew up in the blues rich city of Shreveport, Louisiana where he began performing roots music at a young age. Julian was later a part of the Austin and Memphis music scenes before relocating Albuquerque where he continues to perform American traditional music.
