Two of the most respected performing songwriters on the west coast team up for one night to bring an evening of solo acoustic performances to the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, March 9.
James Hurley and Severin Brown have long discussed performing a combined show. But heavy touring and recording schedules have interfered with those plans until now.
Hurley, a masterful guitarist and singer whom Folkworks Magazine calls “One of the Top Ten Live Acoustic Male Singer-Songwriters in L.A.”, Draws from a large catalog of diverse material. His music reﬂects inﬂuences that range from the Swing era, through the British invasion, to Saturday morning cartoons while remaining distinctly original and
completely accessible. The title track from his release “Tempest in a teacup” spent 12 weeks at the top of Indie-Music.comʼs AC chart.
Browne, whose credits include stints at Motown Records as both a recording artist and as a staff writer, took the “Indie” route a couple of albums back and produces his own releases these days. His most recent, ʻLucky Man-A Songwriterʼs Notebookʼ has garnered high praise form the press. Noted music journalist Paul Zollo calls Browne ʻan
extraordinary songwriter-one of the best and most sophisticated melodists around...ʼ
Fans of acoustic singer/songwriter music will deﬁnitely not want to miss this event.
The Coffee Gallery Backstage is located at 2029 N. Lake in Altadena. Show starts at 8:00 p.m. Admission is $15, Phone (626) 798-6236
