Heather Landreth

Heather grew up surrounded by all genres of music and has a broad musical vocabulary. From Zeppelin to classical music; Heather truly is passionate about all types of music. Her father, Dean Landreth, is an accomplished keyboardist and singer. Her mother, Cindy Landreth, is an amazing songstress who also plays bass guitar.

From an early age, Heather was drawn to music. It was when she began to focus on singing that she found her true passion. Initially singing country music, Heather decided to follow her dream and soon found herself living in Nashville at the age of 18. After several years of performing in Nashville, writing her own music, working with other musicians, and shopping her demo, she felt that something was still missing. It was then she decided it was time to take a step back and reassess what genre of music she truly loved. That’s when Heather rediscovered blues music and everything clicked into place. Since then, Heather has sang with various groups always keeping the focus on blues and rock.

“When I’m singing the blues, I just feel the heartbreak to my core. No other music has ever touched me like that.”

Her soulful sound is influenced by artists like Bonnie Rait, Patty Griffin, Susan Tedeschi, Koko Taylor, Shemika Copeland, Etta James and Beth Hart. Come see Heather and feel the heartbreak for yourself.

Jim Stair

Jim was born into a musical family. His grandfather, a professional jazz drummer during the 20’s and 30’s, played with some of the great band leaders and musicians including Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey, Guy Lombardo, and Paul Whiteman. His mother, a very accomplished classical pianist, colluded with Grandpa to start Jim on piano lessons not long after he learned to walk. Jim dutifully worked his way through Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, etc. until it all came crashing down the evening of February 9th, 1964 when the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan show. After that, piano just wasn’t cool and Jim focused his attention on acquiring and leaning to play electric guitar. His early band experiences throughout high school and college were as a guitarist.

Along the way, however, he became more and more intrigued by the sounds and virtuosity of the keyboardists coming to prominence in the late 60’s and early 70’ rock and jazz fusion scenes. When Jim graduated college and joined the professional world as an Electrical Engineer in Boston, he switched gears musically and returned to the keyboard. Finally earning a salary, he invested in classical piano training to rebuild his technique and reading skills while studying jazz theory with teachers from Berklee and New England Conservatory. Anxious to plug into the vibrant Boston live music scene, Jim purchased his Hammond B3 organ, and Rhodes electric piano and was soon gigging on a steady basis with classic rock (contemporary at the time), blues, funk, and fusion bands.

After 12 years in Boston, Jim pulled up stakes and joined Apple Computer in California as an engineering manager. Later, professional opportunity took Jim to Austin, TX where he hooked up with country artist Darby Ledbetter while also playing with an originals funk rock band. Eventually Jim landed in Las Vegas as an Engineering executive with a large gaming manufacturer and played keyboards for a Pink Floyd tribute band until retiring in early March 2020 when he settled in Asheville.


Josh Wellman

Josh has been kicking a down beat across the Southland since the late 90's. He has played with a bunch of regional acts but what really sets Josh apart from other drummers is his sensitive side. It's been said he’s a Libra, but impossible to every really be sure. 

He loves the sting of bourbon and the scent of russian sage, but it is his funky meter that puts the swagger in Mojomatic’s groove.
