9/26/14 – Iain Matthews


Iain Matthews

In 1967 Matthews became a founder member of the British folk rock band, Fairport Convention.

In order to facilitate and develop his growing fascination with American singer/songwriters, in 1969 he formed his own band, Matthews Southern Comfort, This group spawned a massive European hit with the Joni Mitchell song “Woodstock”. However, within a year, Matthews felt restricted and began his solo career, signing with the Vertigo label and a new era began. After 2 albums for the company, once again, he felt the need for newer pastures and in 1972 Plainsong, a quartet, was formed with friend Andy Roberts, where together and to high critical acclaim, they chronicled the exploits of American aviator, Amelia Earhart.

Within a year Matthews was again on the move, this time changing continents in a move to Los Angeles, where he established an artist, producer relationship with ex Monkee, Michael Nesmith.

Intending to make the one album, stay for a year and return to Britain, Matthews eventually became a US resident, staying for the next 28 years. Along the way, recording a further 15 solo albums, plus several more with Plainsong and a couple with former Pavlov’s Dog founder, David Surkamp, in the short lived Hi-Fi.
In 2000 he returned to Europe and for the next 4 years worked closely with Dutch singer/songwriter, Ad Vanderveen and together with Eliza Gilkyson, they formed the trio More Than a song, recording and releasing 2 albums.

In this decade Matthews has been recording and releasing as prolifically as ever, gifting us almost an entire shelf of new albums, including, “ Joy Mining” & “ In the now”, with his current songwriting and performing partner, Egbert Derix. 2010, saw a new Matthews Southern Comfort album, “ Kind of new”. Followed in 2012 by a final Plainsong live album, “ Fat lady singing”.
In January 2014, the American label, Omnivore Recordings, released Matthews 20th and final solo album, “ The Art of Obscurity”.

9/27/14 Andrea Carlson & The Love Police return!


Andrea Carlson

Born in Tennessee, Andrea Carlson moved all around the country growing up. In high school, the family settled in Chicago, and she attended college there too. First, she was a student of Fine Art at Columbia College. Later, she transferred to the American Conservatory of Music, where she earned her BM in Classical Guitar. A singer and lover of jazz, Andrea moonlighted as a vocalist throughout her studies with several different bands, doing music from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. This continued for 10 years, and she was able to perform in many of the top venues and festivals — a highlight was opening for the one and only James Brown! After moving to the Philadelphia area, however, she began to perform solo, using her classical guitar skills to accompany her singing the standards of jazz. She soon found herself writing extra lyrics to the songs, and sought new ways to arrange them. Through this interest and experience she began composing songs of her own. In 2009, not long into her dabbling with songwriting, she entered a song writing contest…on a whim. She was a winner that year with the Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project! And then again, she won a song writing contest for the 2012 Montgomery/Bucks Music Awards with her song “Mysterious Moon”. Andrea’s music is not only refreshing, but it is Retro, Jazzy, Bluesy, Romantic and most of all it’s fun! She enchants with sultry and playful vocals as she delivers melodies that sound like they belong in the American Songbook, and with her own spin! Her lyrics have been described as ‘quick and witty, in the vein of Cole Porter’ and her classically-trained guitar style as ‘channeling Django Reinhardt’! She has performed in a variety of venues throughout the Philadelphia area, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Chicago, and LA! A Five week European Tour began in June 2013, with stops at the Green Note in London, the Samois Django Festival in Paris, Songwriter’s Circle in Amsterdam, and featured performances at clubs in Barcelona and Edinburgh!”
