Lisa... Still have that CD in my collection!
this sounds cool. I am doing more and more singer/songwriter type stuff these days. Let me take a look at those dates and I'll get back to you. Send me your phone # private
Lisa, . .hi, i responded to the Art Hop venue for solo intrumenalists because i play a unique form of blues that is an hybrid of Beethoven and Jerry Lee Lewis, Chopin and Chuck Berry, Debussy and Lightnin' Hopkins, Gershwin and Jimmy Reed.
I taylor the performance to the moment. For Art Hop i imagine a more quiet impressionistic form of background soft blues ala Debussy, or Gershwin.
My sound is most deffinitely a Calif. genre well outside the New York cocktail hour parlor type of riffing. I aim for a deeper and more personal style of intimacy, . .with the focus always on the romantic.
But, . .aside from the Art Hop event, i am a composer of an original blues/rock/impressionistic style of opera, designed to be an event unto itself, for any stage, broadway to symphany hall.
It is set in the stone age of 20,000 years ago in the deep ice age, . .hence the title, "Rock Age".
It should appeal to any crowd, blue jeans to evening gowns.
I was hoping you might be able to recommend me to a venue here in Fresno which might welcome such a project as this from a local composer to champion Fresno's cultural profile outward into the larger world of L.A., San Fran, and beyond.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
