The She's, Easy Queen, Gina Villalobos, Amee Chapman
THE SHE'S San Francisco's favorite all female garage rippers. Mixing reverb-drenched jangly guitars with sun-soaked harmonies reminiscent of 60’s pop and surf bands, along with a plethora of influences from more fuzzed-out contemporary artists, The She’s have crafted a sound replete with emotion and sound: sometimes happy-go-lucky, sometimes gloomy/melancholy, all around brilliant; a testament to the city they were born and raised in.
EASY QUEEN EQ's distinctive songs reflect a blend of sad bastard songs, singing in harmony, long delay guitar solos, playing in the pocket, and gettin'outta town. On the dusty road between PJ Harvey and Portishead, you'll find Easy Queen singing in harmony, grooving hard, and making love to their audience.
GINA VILLALOBOS “Purveyors of the four-minute popular song usually stick to cataloging one emotion. Gina Villalobos' compositions are not quite so simple, coming off the speakers like holographic Cracker Jack surprises that reveal a new depth with the slightest shift in light. Days On Their Side (Face West Records) finds her taking the Lucinda Williams model to a new level. (And it’s about time someone did.) -AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE
AMEE CHAPMAN "... Proud daughter of a California that has gone astray, Chapman's working-class background and her respect for the state's oft-forgotten rural denizens mark her as a songwriter with a distinctive voice. Chapman shows a refreshing willingness to push musical boundaries, referencing muscular rock & roll, the expansive sonic textures of Wilco and the faded beauty associated with her pal Jolie Holland's torch songs. Chapman is a brave artist who appears to be poised for bigger things." -SANTA CRUZ WEEKLY.
