Since their arrival to the Vail area earlier this year, Joshua Stedman and his good friend SJ had a few main goals: Enjoy the ski season and share their music with the valley. They since played several of Loaded Joe’s open mic nights, and have been featured artists at other Vail live music venues. The duo will perform a free show at Loaded Joe’s in Avon tonight.

Stedman is from Miami, and his sound a combination of funk, soul and rock roots. His main influences are Sting, Jamiroquai, Seal, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, he said. He’s had plenty of recognition in the Miami music scene, being voted artist of the month at the most famous jazz/rock venue in Miami.

SJ has been best described as a “soulful folkster.” His influences are more by singer-singwriter types like Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz and John Mayer. Recently, SJ’s single “I Like You” has been climbing the college charts, and has been added to SiriusXM’s CoffeeHouse channel.

Check out both talents Saturday at 9 p.m. There is no cover. For more information visit: or call 970-748-1480.
