Green

Singer songwriter Green brings in an impressive array of influences to bear on her music. Her guitar and piano based songs incorporate folk, jazz, blues and soul music in a fascinating sound that could be described as "new folk". Critics have compared Green to Laura Nyro, Shawn Colvin, and Joni Mitchell, yet her music retains a strong individuality and freshness thanks to her diverse influences.

Green has been singing for as long as she can remember. Her mother says she sang before she began to talk! Growing up in the multi-cultural mecca of Los Angeles, Green listened to Simon and Garfunkel and The Beatles, as well as to music from other cultures. She began studying piano at age 5 and built on her precociousness by learning clarinet, and then flamenco, blues, and jazz guitar.

Since these auspicious beginnings, Green has been performing professionally for many years. She has performed at festivals and clubs across the country including: The Southern Oregon Women's Music Festival, Northern California's Mateel Music Festival, San Francisco's Bottom of the Hill, and The CoCo Club. In the early 90's, she co-founded Toe Jamboree, an LA based folk-funk duo, and from '95 to '97, she fronted San Francisco's popular Midnight Picnic, contributing passionate vocals and hot original music to the group's repertoire.

Green's debut CD, Multiheaded Heart, is an eclectic set of 10 finely crafted original songs. Produced by award winning producer Mimi Fox (who contributes her own guitar virtuosity to this project), this recording is richly represented with some of the San Francisco Bay Area's best talent. Melanie DeMore and Elouise Burrell (Linda Tillery's Cultural Heritage Choir), singer songwriter Helen Chaya, bassist Marc Vanwageningen (Pete Escovida's group), and pianist Julie Homi (formerly with Tracy Chapman and Angela Bofill) all contribute expertly. The songs from Multiheaded Heart are from the diverse land of the heart. Moving gracefully from poignant beauty, to funky jazz/folk, Green has created a stunning landscape.

Whether she is performing at a major music festival, or generously sharing her talents for philanthropic organizations like "Food Not Bombs", Green's song's cut through the chaos of everyday life, bringing clarity and beauty to each moment. "I write about what I know... my observations and experiences.. I try to be as honest as I can be; it's an incredible creative and healing experience for me," she says. Jazz vocalist supreme Rhiannon has said of Green: "This generous musical spirit is rising." With her beautiful voice and insightful songs, Green's musical spirit is indeed rising, and moving and inspiring audiences as she soars.

Anna Wolfe

Anna's performances range from sweet to sweaty, from folk to jazz to rock and roll. She has been compared to such diva greats as Janis Joplin and Joni Mitchell. Her songs carry a positive message of the Spirit in all reality in a non traditional, non new age sort of way that anyone could groove to.

It is hard to describe Anna Wolfe. This is because she herself is a paradox. She is soft spoken but powerfully voiced to sing. She is quirky and extremely creative. She is theatrical in her performance, her voice plays many characters, but never one that exceeds the truth. She is real and vulnerable and angry at times. Sometimes she will sing you the sweetest lullaby. Sometimes she will growl and protest life's difficulties. But one thing is apparent in all of her songs. When she sings, she is part of something greater than herself.

"I Never was Cool", proves to be a high energy work of art, which includes twelve original songs written from the heart and soul but with all the richness of shadow and controversy. This album is no hotel painting. It belongs in a museum.
