Singer-Songwriters in the Round Featuring Brian Chartrand, Obadiah Parker, and Miguel Melgoza

Three Arizona-based artists join together in the first performance of a series highlighting the songwriting talent of Phoenix’s own.

Brian Chartrand
Brian Chartrand’s projects—Live from Laurel Canyon, the Sweet Remains, and the Project—have solidified his status as a local and national talent. Equally comfortable performing in a myriad of ensembles, Chartrand shines as a songwriter, bringing a masterful and sensitive touch to heartfelt lyrics. He has been making music in Phoenix, Arizona, since 2003.

Obadiah Parker
Based out of Phoenix, Mat Weddle has been playing music as Obadiah Parker since 2005. Driven by a popular YouTube video of a live performance, his cover of “Hey Ya” became a breakout hit in 2007, topping the iTunes singer-songwriter charts for the year. With the following 2008 EP, The Tip Jar, Vol. I, Parker built a strong internet following with soulful vocals and his ability to cover a variety of tunes with a unique style.

Miguel Melgoza
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, singer-songwriter, drummer, and percussionist Miguel Melgoza began playing music professionally after moving to Phoenix. Melgoza co-founded the Latin trio Cascabel and found success writing songs for nationally syndicated TV programs including The Shield and CSI: Miami. He plays solo several nights a week on acoustic guitar and vocals, as well as backing up some of the Valley’s best artists on drums or percussion.
