Visual Arts: Glasswork, Photography
I have spent the majority of my life dedicated to the creation of things. It began with music and has transcended over the years into many other genres of art.
My stained glass designs focus on color, texture, shape, and form resulting in unique one-of-kind art, ranging from finished custom framed pieces and refurbished antique windows to smaller window hangings.
I’ve been taking photos since I was a kid when my mom gave me an old point and shoot camera. I remember taking photos of sky and cloud formations and somehow trying to capture my imagination on film. That same fascination with nature and the intimate beauty that surrounds us inspires much of my photography today.
Music has been a passion for as long as I can remember. It began with making up senseless little songs and trying to write them down in some form to earning a M.A. in music composition. My first obsession was the guitar, over time the banjo and other stringed instruments found there way into my hands. My present obsession has become the violin. I have always strived to create my own voice with my instruments and compositions. The Maple Trio, Blueprintmusic, and my solo work demonstrate my collaborations with other amazingly gifted musicians.

A Bagga Trouble
Live Music Traversing all realms of Time & Genre
Songs you haven’t heard in awhile and songs you heard for the first time today.
Performing Arts: Music
Brandon Wadley is a songwriter and performer writing and creating his own earthy brand of indie rock and leading a three piece band out of Indianapolis, IN. With a disarming voice, cathartic lyricism and warm, powerful guitar playing, Brandon cites 90s alternative rock, the lyrical ferocity of hardcore punk, and roots in Appalachian folk to unite a delightfully raw and intricate collection of melodies making for an inviting, adventurous performance. Lyrical themes gravitate toward freedom, redemption, and searching for wholeness. Seeing Brandon perform live is like having coffee with an old friend on a morning-lit patio, except the songs are now listening to you.

He also plays wedding ceremonies, and has a beautiful acapella acoustic version of the Bridal Chours and the Bridal March.
Jake – “I play solo acoustic music. I play a wide range of genres but my style is best described as Jack Johnson style, and I cover a lot of his material well. A friend coined the phrase “Island country” and I think it fits my style well. I am a singer/songwriter and I have been told I can calm a room with my songs. I write a lot of orginal material, and have developed a following at local open stages and coffee shops. I usually perform alone with one acoustic guitar. I am often told that my work is excelent, vocals are spot on, and perform with ease and comfort.”
