Who's next?!

Dayna Kurtz Sat Nov 1 2014 8:00pm
 

Our house has been too quiet too long - and we are SO EXCITED to be hosting for truly amazing Dayna Kurtz, an artist that touches our heart and soul!! Please RSVP! Doors at 8:00pm - concert at 8:30pm

$20 donation (cash at door) - all proceeds to the artist of course!

 

Dayna is close to our heart and the Pasedena Times recently came close to our estimation.. --" It’s hard to hear Dayna Kurtz and not feel the brush of time. It isn’t just the timbre of her rapturous, smoky alto that evokes bygone mistresses of song like Nina Simone, to whom Kurtz is often compared, or Billie Holiday, still the queen of phrasing. It’s also in the way she refuses to be rushed. On the contemporary landscape, there are few peers with her taste for savoring notes. Cassandra Wilson comes to mind or, closer to pop, Norah Jones maybe. except she's even more wonderful than that - "- Over the past decade, the New Jersey born, now New Orleans resident vocalist/writer/musician/producer has been bestowed with many awards and praises, including being named the Female Songwriter of the Year by the National Academy of Songwriters. Norah Jones and Bonnie Raitt have raved about her in interviews, and she’s performed on such high-profile radio shows as World Cafe, Mountain Stage and NPR’s Morning Edition and Tell Me More. She’s toured with the likes of Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, Mavis Staples, Rufus Wainwright, B.B. King, Dr. John, Richie Havens, Keren Ann, Chris Whitley, and the Blind Boys of Alabama.

Natalia Zukerman Fri Nov 21 8:00pm
  Natalia's new reccord Come Thief, Come Fire completely blows our mind - a record so true and from the heart, it takes your breath and then more.. ! Some info on this wonderful artist: Natalia Zukerman grew up in New York City, studied art at Oberlin, worked in mural arts in San Francisco, began her songwriting career in Boston, and now resides, writes, plays and paints in Brooklyn, NY. The daughter of classical musicians Eugenia and Pinchas Zukerman, Natalia found her sound in other strings – those on slide guitar, lap steel, dobro. She found kinship in the earthiness and honesty of folk, bluegrass, jazz and blues music.
Christine Havrilla We can't wait - details coming soon!

Who's been?!

Anne Heaton Sat Jan 11 2014 7:30pm
  Singer-songwriter and classically trained pianist Anne Heaton has amassed awards and praise from critics, fellow artists and fans with her songs that are by turns “tender, barbed and spiritual” (Washington Post). Her graceful, vulnerable, and sometimes humorous pop-folk songs have captured audience imaginations for over a decade.
Christine Havrilla Sat Dec 7 2013 7:30pm
  Christine Havrilla rocked the house last night with some of the best guitar playing we have heard. Beyond talented guitarist, her voice has never sounded better and her songwriter rings true and full of passion.
She graced us with two great sets, including fantastic new songs, and many of our favorites such as Foolish Lullaby, Daffodil, Take another Look and Hole in the Ground. Christine also delivered ingenious renditions of Folsom Prison Blues and Radioactive. We're glad to have her back on the east coast and look forward to seeing her soon!
AG, Maia Sharp & Garrison Starr! Sat Oct 19 2013 7:30pm
  Having AG, Maia and Garrison here was just beyond amazing - these women are fiercely talented. Their song writing is well known in the industry and we can see why - simply brilliant. They played together, sharing the lead in turn and harmonizing beautifully. This was a rare and magical evening that we will not soon forget!!
Meg Hutchinson

Meg Hutchinson inspired us with her poetry and wooed us with her music in a very special evening. Her songs are transformative, and take us on a journey that touches the heart and soul... And big news coming from Meg - Winterbloom is featured in a new indy film, and her new record, Beyond That is out now and available on iTunes! We can't wait to see her again - thank you Meg!!

Natalia Zukerman & AG

What an amazing night with these two brilliant women - Both Natalia & AG have new CDs - Me After You is now on permanent replay status on our pod - absolutely brilliant lyrics and a voice that is just magical and haunting.. Natalia is so many things at once – bluesy jazz folk that is utterly unique and one of kind. Her new live CD is Gypsies & Clowns almost completely captures how amazing she is live. Their art is also phenomenal – we managed to score a couple of fantastic pieces! This was such an amazing night for us – they performed together effortlessly, with grace, humor and brilliance. Thank you AG & Natalia! Check them out yourself if you missed it!
