I'm very pleased to be included on this compilation of Bay Area songwriters, a project spearheaded by two masters of the songwriting form, Maurice Tani and Jim Bruno. On Wednesday, March 25, most of the participating artists are gathering together for "an old San Francisco-style, underground evening of song" at Doc's Lab in North Beach.
"What makes San Francisco a mecca for musicians and songwriters? It’s hard to say. Maybe it’s the desire to follow in the footsteps of Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady. But since the beginning of the modern musical era, songwriters as diverse as Jerry Garcia, Sly Stone, The Jefferson Airplane, Green Day, John Fogerty have called the Bay Area “home.”
The Golden Gate still inspires songs from the hearts and minds of its talented inhabitants. And we’ve combed the bars, backrooms, coffeehouses and open mics to find an outstanding group of nine new and established Bay Area tunesmiths and bring them directly to you."
