Event description

Description

Annie Bacon is a songwriter/musician in San Francisco. She aches for a more empathic humanity and her creativity orbits around this. Essentially folk music at its roots, her humanist songs twist and surge under the influence of her past musical life as bassist for renegade rock band Sweet Crude Bill and an obsession with melody. The effect is an emotional, soaring and deeply satisfying set from Annie Bacon & her OSHEN (Jeremy Mulder, Omar Cuellar, & Meryl Theo Press) that evokes at once Fletwood Mac, Patsy Cline, and Feist.

Eight Belles: Songwriter and vocalist Jessi Phillips and guitarist Henry Aloysius Nagle create inspired, subtle Americana music that pays respects to its influences but sounds like nothing but itself. If Harry Nilsson and Patsy Cline had a love child and left it in the forest to be raised by wolves, its cries would sound very similar to this music.

The Singer and The Songwriter

"...just the right amount of jazz, blues, and a modern edge, the duo brings out the best in each other.” - Playback: STL

Rachel Garcia and Thu Tran met in the winter of 2006, as students of San Francisco State University at an open mic night at the now defunct Canvas Gallery Café. Some years later, on a road trip up the coast of California to Oregon, on the Pacific Coast Highway, they were inspired to write their first song together, which led to the formation of the band. In the fall of 2009 they recorded their independently produced, 5-song debut EP at Amadeo Studios in the Bay Area.

Shortly after moving to Los Angeles in 2008, they began writing and performing music together (under the name Ampersand, later transitioning to The Singer and The Songwriter). The duo started out crafting simple folk songs, but as their songwriting developed, they began to incorporate influences from different eras of jazz and pop music, which led to the creation of their unique, vibrant, “sophisticated but playful” sound (BuzzBands LA). Their music is a stylistic hybrid, reflecting their diverse musical and cultural backgrounds. “His guitar shimmies and swings like Django Reinhardt while her voice wraps around each note, swaying in unison like a modern-day Ella Fitzgerald.” (Nooga).
