ABOUT THE SHOWCASE:
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.

A rhythmic singer-songwriter, Gary applies his drumming background, insightful lyrics and clear voice to weave tightly constructed acoustic/pop songs. Gary has performed in bands that have opened for artists such as Suzanne Vega, The Beautiful South, Miracle Legion, The Silos, and Poi Dog Pondering. www.myspace.com/3minutedrill
Jazz vocalist and songwriter, Barbara Martin, has a taste of Billie Holiday, a splash of playful Ella Fitzgerald and a strong streak of smoky Bonnie Raitt. Based in the peaceful Shenandoah Valley, her skillful song crafting and solid guitar chops set her apart. Her unique blend of styles crosses genres and reflects the roots of the jazz tradition. www.barbaramartinmusic.com
I am a contemporary folksinger/songwriter, performing primarily in L.A.'s southbay area. I am passionate about my songwriting, creating stories containing a mixture of family, a measure of protest, a pinch of love & lust, and a good portion of irreverence. www.myspace.com/kayereznick
