Brian Culbertson

Jazz, R&B/Soul
Brian Culbertson's steady stream of top albums and hit singles should come as no surprise since he began playing the piano at the age of 8, which he went on to master, along with the trombone, drums and bass. Growing up, he was influenced by heavy players ranging from Earth, Wind & Fire, to The Becker Brothers, to James Brown. Since his debut album release in 1994, Culbertson has recorded on and/or produced over 25 chart-topping records in musical styles that have moved from R&B throwdowns to New Age lullabies.

Paula Poundstone

Stand Up Comedy
Paula Poundstone has long been considered one of the most original comedians in the business. Legendary for her razor-sharp wit and wry, intelligent humor, she's a master at spontaneous interaction with a crowd. One of Comedy Central's Top 100 Comics of All Time, Poundstone is a popular panelist on NPR's weekly comedy news quiz "Wait, Wait … Don't Tell Me!" Her second book, "The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness" (Algonquin Books), debuted on May 9, 2017, and climbed to No. 1 on Amazon's Humor CDs and and in the top 10 of the Bestsellers Hardcover Humor lists on day one. Poundstone's new CD, "North By Northwest: Paula Poundstone Live!" (HighBridge), her first double-live, landed atop both Amazon's Hot New Releases Non Fiction and Comedy CD lists, along with Billboard's Top Ten Comedy Albums chart. Poundstone was the first woman ever to host the White House Correspondents' Dinner, she has had numerous HBO specials, starred in her own series on HBO and ABC, and has won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up. And she launched her weekly podcast, "Live From the Poundstone Institute," in 2017. .

Built to Spill

Rock
Built to Spill hails from the unlikely town of Boise, Idaho. In the 1990s the indie rockers found the middle ground between postmodern, pavement-style pop and the loose, spacious jamming of Neil Young. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Doug Martsch is at the core of the band. Band members Brett Nelson (bass), Scott Plouf (drums) Jim Roth (guitar) and Brett Netson (guitar) have all been musicians for two decades.
