Luke Mann of Keller-Williams has been bringing live acoustic music to Jam for several months on Thursday nights and it has drawn quite a following. Now they have moved to Tuesday nights out on the club’s large patio brings a warm summer feel that only an outdoor concert can bring.
Kristi & Scotty—Acoustic on the Loose
KRISTI AND SCOTTY make up Acoustic on the Loose and have been called a “soulful” duo. “They are Melissa Ethridge-esque,” says Mann. They were recently featured on KUTV
and have played at Park Silly.
JEN STENSRUD was born and raised in Murray, Utah and says she inherited a good ear for music from her parents. “I’ve always played around with dad’s guitars as a kid, but
picked it up and got serious about learning a 12. I learned my chords by writing songs with them, and here I am 12 years later still loving it!” Her early infl uences were Lisa Loeb, Sheryl Crow and Ani Difranco, but says her sound has grown into her own since then.

CAROLINE BYBEE writes what she knows; and she knows music. The 23-year-old Utah native fi rst picked up a guitar in high school, but has been involved in music with her
family for most of her life. Inspired by the work of Imogen Heap, John Mayer and others, Caroline has written her own lyrics and songs since the beginning. In a recent blog
post, Caroline says, “If we all walked around blabbing words of affi rmation right and left to one another we may get bored or become desensitized to one’s sincerity. … We must
fi nd the happy medium and balance between backing off too much, and coming on too strong.” And her music does just that.

CARY JUDD undoubtedly redefi nes the oneman-show. Deceptively understated as just a man and a guitar, what you see is not all you get. Cary begins each show by playing a riff
or progression that fi nds itself embellished in a swirl of drum and guitar loops that he masterfully creates with a series of electronic pedals at his feet. His songs — vulnerable,
clever and beautifully full of contradictions — appeal to virtually all listeners because of their raw connection with human fear, hope and triumph.

JUSTIN UTLEY was born in Salt Lake City and first began performing on piano at age 7. He was awarded “Best Singer and Songwriter” by Salt Lake City Weekly and performed at
the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympics. Utley released his fi rst nationally-distributed CD, Runaway, in 2005. He left Utah behind in 2006 for New York City after releasing “Hold
You + Remixes.” Scott Nevins said Utley has “looks, talent and a voice to die for,” and PlanetOut’s J. Poet said he was “born to be a rockstar.”

ANNIE DEAN loves to sing more than anything in the world, but for some strange reason has the worst stage fright. “But I do my best to just get up there and sing my heart out,” she says. “Everyone tells me they have no idea I am ever nervous, I try to block it out, and just sing with my heart.” She has played the guitar since she was 6 years old
and has developed her own style that some say is similar to Jewel. She currently has four of her own songs on her Myspace page, myspace.com/anniedean914.
Tuesday nights Jam is at 751 N. 300 West.
