04/10/20 - The Woodshed Sessions Return!

CANCELLED! The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble presents the return of their concert series the Woodshed Sessions at the Coffee Gallery Backstage including guest artists from Southern California & beyond!

April 10 Featured Artist: The Singer and the Songwriter

We couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to a Northern California act that we think is a phenomenal talent, The Singer and the Songwriter. Read below and make plans to join us to drink in the beauty and talent of this incredible new young duo!

The Singer and The Songwriter is the musical duo of vocalist/songwriter Rachel Garcia and guitarist/songwriter Thu Tran. “The duo creates soft melodic songs, that could just as easily exist as poems. Beautiful, and full of sound and emotion” (Playlist Play) while their multi-cultural backgrounds bring depth and diversity to the rich traditions of folk, jazz and blues music; genres they navigate between with ease and fluidity. The duo has been captivating audiences across the US with their intimate live shows at house concerts, theaters, listening rooms, and coffeehouses. At times heartbreaking and at times hilarious, their performances are open-hearted conversations with the audience where they share their stories full of honesty, humor and wit, while delivering their songs with riveting, economical precision. Their live shows are filled with “inimitable storytelling, musical mastery, and soul-baring honesty. These two are truly a gift.” (High Plains Public Radio) Garcia’s voice is “rich and mellow, strong and elegant, delicate and turbulent” (The Huffington Post) while Tran’s dynamic guitar-playing “shimmies and swings like Django Reinhardt” (Nooga). They have released 3 critically-acclaimed albums, and are currently touring the US. They are currently writing and recording a full-length album, slated for release in 2020.

The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble has been likened to the classic British bands Pentangle and Fairport Convention in that they blend classic folk music with rough-edged stories of tragedy and fate, all with orchestral arrangements sounding like chamber music gone folk! “...a ride through a wide range of Americana meadows and valleys... from skilled instrumentation bluegrass jams, Appalachian vocals, sweet high lonesome harmonies and old-time folk influences, the richness of a tapestry of American music that weaves together each genre through... song-craft, clear production and authentic performance... it feels like we’re hearing just one genre ~ great American music... one of the finest and most original Americana groups in California (or in the country for that matter).” – No Depression

The best new band I’ve never heard of...!” ~ Dan Crary.
