MATINEE! Singer/songwriter Marty Axelrod launches a new concert series in which he trades songs and stories with a highly-admired guest. This premiere show features the "Powdercoat".  

Powdercoat is an enchanting duo made up of Claire Holley and Kristin Mooney!

Marty will be rolling out new songs as well as favorites from the Tall Men Group repertoire. Marty, Claire and Kristin will engage in unrehearsed, free-ranging conversation about their lives in music. And Powdercoat will offer their splendid vocal harmonies on gorgeous songs backed by Claire’s just-right guitar accompaniment.

Join us for a terrific Sunday afternoon’s entertainment – top-quality songs and smart conversation, all within the intimate confines of the finest listening venue in the LA region.


Kristin Mooney and Claire Holley began singing together a decade ago when a mutual friend brought them together to sing in a collective of female voices in Los Angeles. The two had an immediate vocal chemistry and soon began writing together. While Holley is a native of Jackson, Mississippi and Mooney hails from St. Paul, Minnesota they both share an ear for harmony. Their critically praised debut powdercoat EP produced by Greg Herzenach was selected Winner of the 2014 MIAL (Mississippi Institute of Arts & Letters) Awards for Popular Music Compostion.

"The duo of Claire Holley and Kristin Mooney have created one of the year's loveliest recordings with their seven track Powdercoat E.P. I caught them live earlier this year, and was completely entranced by their spare, well-crafted acoustic arrangements, intricate harmonies and melodies....This is music for the heart and soul." ~ Huffington Post
