"Features & Tweeners" with Cindy kalmenson, Natalie Gelman, & Andy Davis

  • Ojai Underground Exchange 1016 W Ojai Ave Ojai, CA 93023 (map)

Join us Friday, February 15th for an evening of acoustic songwriting by some incredibly talented musicians!

Cindy Kalmenson is a singer/songwriter whose work will sound good to those who love either country music or folk music. She’s a storyteller with a knack for both genres. Country fans will laugh and dance along while those who like folk will enjoy the family and life stories. Her whole catalog is filled with good songs, memorable hooks, and stories worth the telling. Cindy continues to travel as a solo artist as well as playing festivals, listening rooms and house concerts around the West. She is a very spontaneous, engaging and soulful performer who feels very much at home on stage. She has been compared to Sheryl Crow, Kathleen Edwards, and Lucinda Williams.

Raised in the old West Village, NYC stomping ground of songwriting greats, Natalie Gelman grew up amidst artists and true bohemians. She borrowed a friends guitar at 16 and started writing songs on it immediately and began busking on subway platforms soon afterwards when she grew tired of pretending to be 21 to play clubs in the city. Often compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Natalie’s music is contemporary and timeless. She writes honest, heartfelt songs - responding to current affairs and revealing parts of her inner self with the world.

Andy Davis’s smart and seductive blue-eyed soul music weds indelible hooks to sly, incisive lyrics, creating songs that sound like newly minted pop-soul classics. A thoroughly contemporary artist raised on old-school rock and soul, Andy Davis’s infallible ear for hooks -- for a well-turned phrase -- and for the often irregular heartbeat of human relationships continues to engage longtime fans and win him new ones.

These “features” will be joined on stage by some “tweeners”, Ray McGee and Diane Miller! The show begins at 7:30, and there is a $15-$20 suggested donation at the door.
