Great Local Acoustic Music!
Alicia Stockman is a singer-songwriter from Heber City, Utah, who connects with her audiences through memories, experiences, and stories. Her songs are intimate moments, meant to draw listeners in and leave them hanging on every word. Simple, but to the point. Strong rhythm guitar, creative yet tasteful phrasing, and soulful sweet vocals bring the experience full circle.
She is influenced by the likes of Patty Griffin, the Indigo Girls, Jewel, and Susan Tedeschi – all strong female vocalists and songwriters. She takes inspiration from stories, places, and memories to craft songs that draw listeners into an emotional journey.
Alicia was recognized for her unique songwriting and performance formula with accolades from several performing songwriter competitions, including 1st place in the 2017 Susanne Millsaps Performing Singer Songwriter Showcase. The Houston Music Review says “Alicia… brings a fresh brave attitude to her music and performances. Her confidence is contagious and her choice of subject matter for her songs show a maturity beyond her years.”

J.T., Brady, and Bill are veterans of the SLC scene, having played in dozens of local rock, jazz, acoustic and blues projects. Eliza, who was born in California and grew up in Vermont, recently relocated to Salt Lake after graduating from BYU-Idaho with a music degree.
