Ten Bulls is a dichotomy. Comprised of Christian Clark (Vocals/Guitar), Jay Sanchioli (Bass), Chaz Lamden (Drums), Ida Naughton (Synth/Vocals), and Sebastian Rizo (Synth) the group boasts a sound that is both unique and accessible; walking the line between past and future - yet sounding like the very next step. Period pieces written precisely for this very moment. Fuzzy, distorted bass and hypnotic rhythms meet retro synth textures, shimmering guitar, saxophone, and catchy vocals with progressive sensibilities. Ten Bulls manages to mesh polyrhythmic beats and alternative time signatures with jazzy, progressive song structures and pop melodies in a way that doesn't feel jarring or contrived. New Wave, Alternative, Psychadelic, Indie, and Industrial influences shine through: it's a sound that's hard to pin down, but feels complete. It feels like another step."

Jennifer Westwood cut her teeth on gospel before hitting the gritty Detroit area bars that set her career in motion; among her first “secular” performances singing in a local nightclub with Motown’s Carl Carlton. Weaving inspiration from her hometown roots and a family tree steeped in a classic country music heritage, the sounds she and guitarist Dylan Dunbar present reflect the blend of cultures drawn into a once thriving rustbelt metropolis. A stew of gospel, blues, and soulful americana.Dylan Dunbar spent his teen years refining his chops in local blues joints, moving on to perform with W.C. Handy award winners Chef Chris and Johnny "Yard Dog" Jones, as well as country artist Whitey Morgan. His dynamic playing style and soulful slide work evoke thoughts of Texas Blues and Muscle Shoals, complimenting Jennifer's broad vocal range and unique sound that invokes influences ranging from Linda Ronstadt to Big Mama Thorton.Together, with Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils they have 7 Detroit Music Awards, as well as one for work with Sponge (Sony) frontman Vin Dombroski on a traditional country recording (Lalar V).Jennifer and Dylan tour 50,000 miles a year as a duo and the full band performing everywhere from corner bars to concert halls. They’ve been on bills with acts such as Paul Cauthen, Hayes Carll, Paul Thorn, Dale Watson, Delbert McClinton, have performed alongside Patti Smith as well as many others.
