I’m looking forward to this upcoming songwriter’s show. Tuesday September 20, 2022 7-9PM. with JOEL RAFAEL, FREEBO, ALICE HOWE AND JODI SIEGEL!
Joel Rafael is a legendary artist in the folk and Americana world. He has worked with such legends as David Crosby, Graham Nash, Van Dyke Parks, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Jason Mraz, Jennifer Warnes and more…his songs are guaranteed to move and inspire you.
Freebo and Jodi go back decades. As many of you know, he played bass with Bonnie Raitt for ten years, as well as many other legends (Ringo Starr, John Mayall, John Hall of Orleans, Dr John and more including my friend Maria Muldaur.) Also, many years ago Freebo produced a record that Jodi and her good friend Will Brady did called “Beer and Donuts”. Freebo has also had quite an interesting career as a singer/songwriter, guitarist over the last ten years or so, with many solo records to his name, songwriting awards and as a producer.
Alice Howe, before hooking up with Freebo (as her musical partner and producer), was already winning songwriting awards and creating a name for herself in the folk world. She has a new record coming out, “Circumstance” produced by Freebo, and it was recorded in Memphis at Fame studios. She will play some new and older stuff I’m sure, and will be backed up by Freebo on some tunes.
Jodi Siegel has created a heady and dynamic stew of musical influences (blues, pop, R & B, soul and jazz) into a sound and a style that make her a triple threat; songwriting, singing and guitar playing. Jodi’s fine-tuned solo performances are likened to a “one-woman” band!! Her truly original style can fill a room with explosive slide guitar, jazzy vocals and a fun, easy going rapport with her audience. She can go from funky bluesy grooves to folk, to jazz and back again with ease. She’s an old soul with a fresh sound.
Project Barley’s is located in Lomita (south of Torrance/Redondo on PCH). They have great food,(Gourmet pizza, sandwiches, gluten free/vegan options and of course wine and beer! ! For more information check out their website https://projectbarley.com/
