The Songsalive! Los Angeles Showcase features a new venue, a new date, and a new format! Songsalive returns to Hallenbeck's after a couple of years. Hallenbeck's is an well known venue for acoustic Los Angeles Songwriters and performers - they have a small stage with a great sound system, great food and drinks, it is family friendly too, with free parking on the street.

We have four performers who will be doing mini-sets in two rounds - so nice you hear them all twice! And we'll have a short intermission in the middle for food, stretching, and conversation.

Jay Matsueda
Jay Matsueda is resourceful L.A. singer songwriter who both performs solo and sometimes with L.A. session greats who he shoots professional photography for. His recorded songs are crafted with lyrical independence in mind, yet each song's meaning is accentuated by elaborate musical backdrops. First album EAT YOUR SAD is scheduled for a mid-September release. Music samples, photos and more at

Siuan was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, but moved to L.A. as teen. When she was a wee girl, she rebelled against her rebel lineage by trying to be practical. Siuan started college at 15 and majored in math and philosophy. After college, she went to work in engineering at NASA (JPL). Siuan also dabbled briefly in visual effects (even moving to New Zealand to work on Lord of the Rings). All the while she painted and fantasized about making music. She soon realized that though she would love to be a renaissance woman and truly do it all- she would always be a hobbyist if she didn't throw caution to the wind and leave practicality behind. She has been compared to Marianne Faithful, Kirsty MacColl, Chrissie Hynde, The Rentals... Her music has been described as completely original, somewhere between the Go Go's meets Bruce Springsteen! The comparisons are diverse and she is flattered by them all.

David Babich David Babich is an exciting and sensitive performer whose songwriting blends folk, and pop-rock in a deeply personal and unique way. He has been writing for 15 years, but since his move back to L.A. in 2005 he has been in a highly prolific phase, releasing a solo EP and now preparing to produce his first full length. After training in classical voice and composition at UCLA, he became deeply involved in many styles of music including jazz, pop, folk and musical theatre. As an actor, he has performed in over 20 plays and musicals, and this experience as a stage performer is immediately noticeable as he musically tells his story.
