Tom Clark

Tom Clark at workTom is a bit of a Mad Hatter in that he wears a different hat for every occasion. Some might say he has too many hats and that they each compromise the uniqueness of the other… but we reckon this unique ability of his affords him the opportunity to get into more tea parties that each require a different dress code.

One hat is a beret that allows him to travel about the world doing “live painting” at fundraisers, concerts, corporate events, conferences and church services. In ‘concert’ with these events he also leads workshops and or collaborative art studios inviting everyone at an event (not just the creative types) to jump and get a bit messy.

Another is a hard hat that involves constructing and curating environments in corporations and churches turning large rooms and stages into veritable wonderlands. There must also be a bright yellow hat (matching his dancing shoes) that he wears when hosting his famous house parties and concerts… because he and his wife make sure that every guest feels included and that they enjoy themselves.

Back in the cozy confines of his studio he gets to wear the thinking cap of a designer and illustrator providing creative branding solutions for non profits, record labels and corporate entities… helping each to create a visual identity for their promotional branding and packaging.

All this to say, if the hat fits–he wears it.

Roy Cochran

Roy+FamRoy is like the shepherd to all the artists and musicians lost in the wilderness. A father to some, a brother to many, he gathers, encourages, feeds (literally), inspires, mentors and sets free, the creative people in the community, to become the ‘story tellers’ they were born to be. 

For the past 8 years Roy has been curating artists gatherings on a local & national level and to facilitate this growing need, he has set up Third Chair Gatherings.  At these events,  Artists are invited to come together to share their lives and talents with one another, to compare notes; the strong helping the weak, the old hand’s mentoring the young, the gifted inspiring the open hearted…. all over a sumptuous meal (maybe the best meal they have enjoyed since the last event).  Whether its just a few people or a hundred, the theme of hospitality dominates the proceedings… fostering a fearless love… and an awakening to a fearless expression of art, music and story telling.

A true servant leader, Roy is the guy that sets the table and opens doors for artists. You’ll find him most days in a coffee shop somewhere, chatting with young and old about identity, about letting go of old hurts or bad experiences… and getting ready for path’s a’new. You can find out more about Roy at www.roycochran.com

Linda McCrary Fisher

LindaTo some folks, Linda is known for her infectious smile, her bold sense of humor, and/or her enormous heart of gold but to most, Linda McCrary Fisher is known for her undeniably unique gospel infused singing voice.

One of the most sort after vocal producers in Los Angeles Linda has worked with Beyonce’, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Andre Crouch, Michael Jackson, The Doobie Bros, Bon Jovi, Chaka Kahn, Madonna, Elton John on the Lion King Soundtrack… and on such television shows as the Grammy’s, The Jamie Fox Show, Mike and Molly and Mom.

Linda brings the best out of everyone around her, helping people, young and old, to stir up that child within them… and sing from their very soul. If you ever get the opportunity, you want to join a choir she is leading… and you will have more fun than you ever thought possible… and, you’ll discover a voice inside of you that you never knew you had.

Linda is in great demand around the world as a coach, a singer and a vocal producer, but she gets just as much satisfaction singing to a room full of kids at a Children’s Hospital as she does singing in a stadium to a 100,000 ‘grown ups’. Her passion is gospel music and when she is not touring or working with the likes of Tommy Walker, Sandra Crouch, Tommy Coomes and the Billy Graham Organization, or working with the McCrary Foundation, she is producing her own music. Check out her latest song, Help Me To Forgive.
