Alice Wallace Encore Performance with D Henry Fenton & Max Kasch

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

Join us Friday, April 19th for an encore performance by Alice Wallace! “Alice has become a shining light on the Los Angeles Americana music scene, sharing her songs of travel, adventure, life, love and loss in her authentic voice…as beautiful as the land she travels." ~ California Country Records. “It’s a song about taking the risk to do what you love,” Alice Wallace says of the soaring track, “The Blue,” which yields a lyric entitling her spellbinding new album. With Into the Blue, the California-country singer-songwriter conjures the atmospheric sound of the Golden State’s canyons and deserts, mountains and crashing waves, its crowning beauty and its tragic losses. At the same time, the supple-voiced Wallace tells her own and others’ stories, weaving tales that resonate as we grapple with so many disturbing national issues.

Into the Blue represents Wallace’s evolution as a recording artist, showcasing her growth as a songwriter as she embraces a fuller sound, backed by some of Americana’s most distinctive players. Co-produced by Steve Berns and Rebelle Road’s studio veteran, songwriter and musician KP Hawthorn (who’ve made a name for themselves working with artists in the West coast Americana scene), the album is brimming with soul. The formidable rhythm section, including drummer Jay Bellerose (Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Aimee Mann) and bassist Jennifer Condos (Jackson Browne, Graham Nash), underpins instrumentation ranging from Tom Bremer’s crunchy electric guitar to Kaitlin Wolfberg’s lush string arrangements to keys and pedal steel from Jeremy Long (Sam Outlaw).

D Henry Fenton is a singer-songwriter originally from Sydney Australia who is now based in the USA. To date he has released 3 albums. "Fenton is one of the most original talents to emerge from this country" -SYDNEY MORNING HERALD "Sydney-sider shifts stateside and cuts Pop-Rock Winner" -ROLLING STONE. "a vocal cross between Tom Petty and Roy Orbison, Fenton's tasty guitars would sit well on recordings by either Wilbury" -RHYTHMS MAGAZINE

He has opened for acts including John Mayer, Kasey Chambers, Colbie Caillat, Lissie, Ed Kuepper, Pete Murray, The Corrs, Jeff Lang and Keith Urban. His music blends Americana, Folk, Blues and Indie-Rock, bringing to mind bands like Wilco, Neil Young, and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

Opening the show at 7:30 is California's own singer/songwriter/actor Max Kasch. $20 suggested donation at the door.
