Why I’m super excited about this next show:
I’m finally getting to hear one of my nearest and dearest ladies Mimi Vitale’s NEW MUSIC! Mimi is a beautiful and captivating performer who will rock this show! (On a side note she and I actually became friends at an audition for the musical Cabaret! When most girls are competing we wanted each other to both make it so we could work together and hang out!) 🙂
I’m performing a really broken down and intimate set with just guitar and percussion. Though I love my incredible funktastic, ridiculously talented full band, it’s fun to experiment vocally with all the space that is there with a smaller set up. I don’t typically do this so it’s a rare treat!
I’m really excited because one of my soul sisters, the divinely talented visual artist JULIA RAUDA is the featured artist.
Excerpt from http://www.JuliaRauda.com
“Julia Rauda connects to the world through her art. Her work visually speaks of female strength and the beautiful chaos of nature while exploring self-love and trusting the universe. Her profound love and connection with music, poetry, and fashion inspires the feelings, colors, textures, and styles expressed within her paintings. Regardless of the materials used (acrylics, markers, spray paint, fabric, aluminum, etc.), Julia is bold in her choices of vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and spiritual meanings. She explores other dimensions, emotional states, and the light and darkness of the mind within her art. This up and coming artist creates work that makes you feel, making her paintings impossible to ignore. Her rawness hits you at your core. And the aim of her work? To inspire your own individuality, self-expression, spirit, and evolution.” YES!!!
