This is HUGE! I’m debuting my San Francisco Band, Amy & The Elements, at Yerba Buena Night in SF. In the band is Rafael Sarria, Chris McCrew and Marvin Ibe! We will be on the main music stage, visible from Market Street between 3rd and 4th streets in Yerba Buena Lane. Yerba Buena Night is a FREE four hour festival (6-10pm) that happens every year. There will be several stages full of music & performance (aerialists, dance, acrobatics, etc) plus other arts throughout the square. I will also be performing my looping on another stage later in the night as part of a contortionist performance. More details on that soon! Please come see us and make a night of it! Visit the Yerba Buena Night Website.
I’m leaving for Burning Man in the morning and will return September 4th. You won’t be able to reach me by phone or email until I get back. If you’re out there make sure to find me! I am performing at Zerodrome on Monday at 9pm (G & 8:15) and The Lost Penguin on Friday at 8pm (A & 3:00).
This Saturday you can catch me outside in the Cornerstone Sonoma Marketplace from 1-4pm. Wine and sunshine will be flowing. Free to the public but donations welcome. Come out and hang for a bit. (See the Cornerstone website) I leave for Burning Man next week so I’ll post an update about that very soon!
This week catch me in Central and Southern California. And there are many more dates to come! Check out this crazy full show schedule! Burning Man is coming up at the end of the month and there are several dates in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Scroll to the bottom right to see my tour dates. There are lots of dates coming up! If you want to be notified when I play near you, search make sure to track me at BandsInTown. Cool stuff! See you soon.

Make sure to get tickets now for my Album and Coloring Book Release Party, April 28th! I’m crafting a very special night for you! (Ticket’s here!) Doc’s Lab is the location and it has the vibe of a “speakeasy”. It’s downstairs in a swanky basement of San Francisco’s North Beach district. Food and drinks are excellent here and candles light the tables.
First, my friend David Colón is performing his looping set. He’s amazingly talented with a strong gorgeous voice, positive lyrics, often rapid word play and the occasional Spanish twist. My good friend and professional artist, Joshua Coffy, is bringing in his easel and will paint something for us that night from scratch. He makes beautiful art which is most often a light-hearted and whimsical approach to our ideals about animals. His painting at my last CD Release Party became a 30 foot tall mural in the heart of San Francisco!
Finally, I will perform a Live Looping set with a couple new songs you haven’t heard and several old favorites. With my Live Looping I perform solo, yet I layer bass, beat boxing, percussion, guitar, piano and harmonies. It’s fun and super cool! I think it adds a new depth to my music. It’s not like having a band. It’s not like playing solo acoustic. It’s something completely different!
Ticket‘s are only $8 in advance and $15 at the door. Make sure to get them asap, in case this sells out.
The venue is all ages. Doors open at 8pm and the music starts at 9pm. There’s great food and drinks so come early for dinner and relax a bit. Find out more about doc’s lab here.

I’m very excited to announce that the new album now has an official release date- April 26th! This is my sixth album. Can you believe it?! I find it mind boggling. The CD Release Party will be in San Francisco on April 28th at the beautiful space of Doc’s Lab. Please join us!
