Hello Good People in the Land --

I’m one excited person about music - ’twas such a jam packed weekend of music and my band was delighted to play at the Fiesta in Carmel Valley. Sunday included 3 shows and I feel fulfilled with good stuff. Looking forward through the month of August - the forecast is nothing but GREATNESS! I wouldn’t waste my time if it weren’t true. This weeks featured artist is the loveliness of Lily Wilson, on tour from L.A. Lily toured with Melissa Etheridge for many years but I happen to love her own material produced by her and her husband Mark Browne. You’ll have 3 opportunities to catch her this weekend so I hope one of them are convenient for you. In a word: Stunning - is the best description I have.

I’m going to meet my daughter, Jazmyn, at Hearst Castle this Saturday to celebrate her 29th birthday - like wow man, another lifetime! Can not wait to be with her and open presents.

Several wonderful artists I book are in your area - see what’s up below.

Enjoy the link of the week at the end featuring the kids that Greg and I have been teaching for a year - and boy oh girl - they are amazing. As always, a big Thank you for supporting live music and keeping musicians alive.

About: BOSCOE’S BROOD (aka Sam Regalado) earned his musical stripes in the Los Angeles coffee house, bar and nightclub scene. Weaned on the music of The Beatles, his tastes and songwriting style eventually expanded and came to include progressive, alternative, harmonic and pop genres; those that today he blends into a creative acoustic sound. Many of his songs are often windows designed to observe the often-quirky lives and habits of everyday people. A veteran road warrior, Boscoe’s Brood has amassed considerable performance miles from San Diego through Seattle, having serenaded music lovers throughout the west with his with guitar, loop, . . .

She’s truly one of my favs - just love this lady and highly sing her praises. You gotta see her while she’s in town. I have every one of her CDs. She sang background vocals with Melissa Etheridge for years and is a star in her own right. Great GREAT songwriter.

About: Touring from L.A. seductive songstress and background singer for Melissa Etheridge. BIO - LILY WILSON Lily Wilson’s music has a way of drawing the listener in and reminding us of the simple beauty of life. Her voice has been described as being “soothing in some other worldly way.” On her newest release, “Harbour,” she says, “With all the craziness in the world right now, I am reminded of the things I have to be thankful for. This group of songs feels like a twinkling harbour filled with welcoming front porches and real friends.” Lily grew up on her family’s farm in Napa, California with lots of outside time and open space to . . .
