Gina Villalobos
“Purveyors of the four-minute popular song usually stick to cataloging one emotion. Gina Villalobos' compositions are not quite so simple, coming off the speakers like holographic Cracker Jack surprises that reveal a new depth with the slightest shift in light, taking the Lucinda Williams / Sheryl Crow model to a new level. (And it’s about time someone did.) Often introducing a verse in a lower, cracked timber before shooting up into early Stevie Nicks territory for yet another tragically
orgasmic chorus." ~AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE.
Amee Chapman - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Amee Chapman
Amee Chapman refers to her full-throated take on Americana as "sagebrush soul," a fitting term for her earthy and textured approach. Proud daughter of a California that has gone astray, Chapman's working class background and her respect for the state's oft-forgotten rural denizens mark her as a songwriter with a distinctive voice. Chapman shows a refreshing willingness to push musical boundaries, referencing muscular rock & roll, the expansive sonic textures of Wilco and the faded beauty associated with her pal Jolie Holland's torch songs. Chapman is a brave artist who appears to be poised for bigger things. ~SANTA CRUZ WEEKLY
Kim Lembo Project
Kim Lembo Project
The Kim Lembo Project is a collection of rotating bay area musicians with front person, Kim Lembo. Whether with her full band or, solo Lembo brings Blues, Roots and Americana soulfulness combined with poetic lyrics and storytelling. Her voice is big and echoes a kind of Etta James meets Lucinda Williams if they played in a band with Mary Gauthier. It’s is the sound of music you cannot define by a singular genre. She sings from her soul with songs written from the heart. Lembo has played all over the US and has recorded in France, California, NY. She currently resides in the Bay Area, California.
