The Patti Steel, Jenna Rae, and Elexa Dawson Throwdown

Patti Steel

Patti Steel is an astonishing multi-instrumentalist, soulful singer/songwriter and visual artist based out of Northwest Arkansas. She is inspired by many artists such as Sheryl Crow, Loretta Lynn, Aretha Franklin, and so many more. Her music styles incorporate anything from American roots music, blues, soul, jazz and beyond. She has been performing, managing, and supporting regional music acts for over a decade and is finally stepping out as a solo artist.

Jenna Rae

Jenna Rae was born in Merriam, Kansas and currently lives outside of Lawrence, Kansas with her fiance Martin Farrell Jr. and poodle Roy Rogers. Jenna is best known for her “genuine, honest, and straightforward” songwriting and her unique vocal tone. Her songwriting journey began when she was in college playing the tenor saxophone in the Pittsburg State University marching band. She started learning banjo in between studying for nursing exams and played in a folk rock band named “Deadeye”.

Songwriting became a big part of Jenna’s life after graduating nursing school -writing songs to wind down after a long hard day on the job and on her days off. Being a nurse requires empathy and Jenna noticed songwriting required empathy as well. Also similar to nursing, music can help and heal people. Jenna cut back on her nursing hours to pursue a music career in 2018 but has never fully quit her nursing job and currently works in the burn and wound clinic at KU Hospital in Kansas City. In July of 2018, she released her debut album “Workin’ Woman” produced by her partner Martin Farrell Jr.

Elexa Dawson

Elexa Dawson’s original songs and familiar favorites will turn on your senses with true musical artistry, honey-smooth vocals, and engaging storytelling.​

Award-winning songwriter and skilled entertainer, Elexa Dawson leads with her powerful voice that’s been compared to warm honey mixed with Flint Hills prairie dirt.

“Music is Medicine” titles her 2019 studio album and names her life’s purpose. They are a Potawatomi community activist, student of sustainable agriculture, workshop facilitator, and mother of two future matriarchs.

​They perform solo, with a funky folk trio, and with regional favorites, Heyleon and Weda Skirts at private and public events, gatherings, pubs, and campfires.
