WHAT AN AMAZING NIGHT!

Real Live Girl Album Release Concert 9-10-2016 (Photo by Paula Stoeke)

Thank you to all who attended, assisted with, played and sang at the REAL LIVE GIRL Album Release Concert Event last week…  It was such a spectacular, fun, joyous celebration of music and friendship, I’m still basking in the afterglow!  The concert was not just SOLD OUT… it was OVER SOLD, with people filling every single seat in the theater as well as the aisles (don’t tell the Fire Marshall!).  I am humbled and deeply moved by all of you who came out in support of me and my music, and I hope you’re all enjoying the new album.

Special thanks to Mark Islam and Grassroots Acoustica Foundation for co-Producing the event, believing in me and being such ardent supporters of my music.  Thanks to Stephen Paley who took 700+ photos of the evening, some of which you will find on the GALLERY page.  Additional thanks to Joey Anderton and his video crew, who captured the evening on film… stay tuned for video clips as they are available!

A great big “thank you” to the stellar band who ROCKED THE HOUSE and made this Real Live Girl’s dream come true:

  • Carl Byron, Music Director, Piano, Keyboard & Accordion
  • Lynn Coulter, Drums & Percussion
  • Gregory Boaz, Upright & Electric Bass

Praise for REAL LIVE GIRL:

"... Smart, insightful and incisive lyrics ... attractive, engaging, sexy, and fresh." "... Real Live Girl finds a balance between that intellectual approach and a playful, flirtatious chorus." "... A strong, distinctive voice, with a lot of character and personality. Real Live Girl makes the most of that character, adding a vivacious quality..." " ... Very smart lyrics throughout ... very visual and sensuous." "... A wonderful, imaginative lyric tone that remains conversational while plumbing the dictionary’s depths." "There‘s no getting around it - lines like ’routine just seems a deadly kind of habitat for me" could’ve come out of a best-selling novel ..." "A voice like a prairie tornado ..." (LA Weekly)
