LA Women in Music Coordinator Phoebe Carter, host Harriet Schock and me at the
LAWiM Show at M Bar in Hollywood.
Now that was a trip!!! Here’s a brief look at what “went down” in LA last week…
I played a private event for some OC singles- what a blast!
Co- wrote with Michael Jay, hit songwriter and producer in his valley studio. We cooked up a sizzling a la Katy Perry hit to some killer dance tracks. Hope to have it ready to share in a few weeks- stay tuned!
Monday night I played a show at the famous Kulak’s Woodshed- a downright groovy place in North Hollywood. Quilts on the ceiling, lots of posters on the walls, live birds and a bed (for real) right in the center of the place for lounging.
I had the opportunity to interview Wendy Levy, a prominent LA music supervisor, for Berklee Blogs. She had some amazing insights and I’m so excited for you to read all about her when it’s published!
Tuesday night I sat in-the-round with platinum-selling songwriter Kevin Fisher, Henry O’Neill and Stefani Scovolo at Molly Malone’s. What a great round! Thanks to Dean at Strongwriter, we’ll be able to share some video footage of the event down the road!
I met with the talented and fierce women at 5 Alarm Music- a top production music company in Pasadena; I will also be blogging about them for Berklee Blogs. I was also able to take a tour of Firehouse Recording Studios- and it was impressive!
Wednesday night I had the opportunity to play at the LA Women in Music Showcase at M Bar in Hollywood. Talk about swanky! Red velvet walls anyone?
I took a trip out to Sherman Oaks to meet with Justine and Peter at the Berklee alumni offices. We had a great visit about all things Berklee and the music biz in LA and Nashville.
Thursday night I took the stage at House of Blues in Hollywood- a great sounding room with wonderful people.
I had lunch with a friend at a German sausage place in Venice (in retrospect probably not the best digestive choice). I then played the Nette Radio show hosted by Annette Conlon at The Talking Stick to benefit the Pepper Foundation.
A beachside co-write with the spunky and poetic Courtney Heins during the day was a treat! And I got WAY sunburned- not as much of a treat. :)
Saturday night I met up with some friends from Boston at my last show at UnUrban Coffee in Santa Monica. I recommend the chicken curry sandwich!
