Meet The Band!!!

Emily Williams – Lead Vocalist

Emily Williams has been singing and performing all over the United States and Canada. Her most memorable stop being a performance at Carnegie Hall with the Cincinnati Pops. However, nothing could match her experience with the house band 2 Ton Ray Gun in Indianapolis IN, where she met and married her husband Lloyd the bass player. She is featured on four albums and a couple of her own children's recordings. Her background is a BA in musical theater from Indiana University.

Mike Rut – Lead Guitar / Vocals

For the past 14 years, Mike has owned and operated Mustard Seed Recording Studio. He also is the “Executive Director of Arts” at K2, a local Church in Salt Lake City. One of his songs was published by EMI in 2006. His bands have opened for Toto and Robin Trower.

Tom Smith – Keyboards / Guitar / Vocals

Tom  has played in a variety of original and cover bands playing whatever instrument 'needs to be played'.

He has provided 'a little help to his friends' on various recording projects and released a single back in the 80's that unfortunately failed to bring him the fame and fortune he so vividly envisioned.  Tom originally hails from Toronto, Canada (eh?), but has enjoyed the music scene here in Salt Lake over the last 12 years.

Tommy Maras –Percussion

Tommy started playing drums at the age of 7, after a short stint on the violin.  Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Tommy has a busy recording schedule and plays live gigs around town, including with several local community symphonies. 

Tommy has been in local bands, hired for many musical situations and has been a recording artist in Los Angeles and Nashville as well.

Matt Meldrum–Bass/Guitar/Vocals

Ever since starting piano lessons at the age of nine, Matt has dabbled with any musical instrument he can get his hands on.  Over the past 20 years he has toured the western United States while playing bass, guitar, and keys in various cover and original bands.  He has produced and released several albums of original music with his "other" band, Sons of Nothing, while producing and engineering other people's music whenever the opportunity allows.
