Bekah Barnett
A refreshing blend of jazz, folk, pop, and spiritual music, Bekah
Barnett’s piano driven tunes and soulful voice have been compared to
Tori Amos, Natalie Merchant, Adele, and Joni Mitchell. Her songs are
well crafted and emotionally engaging, with the centerpiece of pure,
clear, operatically-trained vocals. “This is smart songwriting for
eager ears.” Her sophomore release, RISE, was recorded at Fantasy
Studios with local producer and master pianist Julie Wolf.
Austin Willacy
Austin Willacy is a singer­/songwriter, who has toured internationally
for 20 years with the House Jacks, the “Rock Band without
Instruments,” and has multiple solo albums. His music is soulful and
raucous, tender and comic. He is the mentor for Youth in Arts' 'Til
Dawn, a youth a cappella group that empowers youth to find their
voices in so many ways. With complete activist cred as a leader in
YES! and the Rainforest Action Network plus a side career in
soundalike singing Voice Overs, including Guitar Hero and Karaoke
Revolution, Austin is a renaissance man. But, who cares about all
that? Because what matters is what Bonnie Raitt told him: “You can
really F*ckin sing.”
New Spell
Dark indie pop with female vocals, this San Francisco Bay Area based
project creates music that is melancholy and moving, hopeful and
haunting. The unifying force behind New Spell's sound is songwriter
Leanne Kelly Greenberg's wandering indie vocal melodies and
keyboard-centric songwriting. Drums and bass embellish undulating
rhythms and compelling harmonies, conjuring a uniquely captivating
musical style.
