Musical Awakenings at Awaken Cafe
Come join us for a beautiful night of acoustic music in the Convent's chapel. Doors open at 8 and the performances will begin shortly after. There will be wine, merriment and the best of company. Suggested donation $10-15 Our two songbirds of the evening... Chelsea Coleman: singing-songwriting machine, has many passions, but the one that has been with her all her life is music. She got her start in the church halls of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and through a long series of adventures ended up in the great city of Berkeley, California which she now calls home. Her heart, brain, and hands work hard, waking and sleeping, to bring you pleasing, intriguing, honest music. http://www.reverbnation.com/chelseacoleman Courtney Marie Andrews: American singer/songwriter originally from Phoenix, Arizona. After several releases and tours she made her way up to Seattle, Washington, where she currently lives. When she isn't touring many lands, she is writing and recording in her secret cave. http://courtneymarieandrews.bandcamp.com/
It's Front Porch time again friends and we've got another great one for you this month with Papa Bear and the Easy Love and Chelsea Coleman. Papa Bear frontman Aaron Glass has a voice that’s big, clear and true with a heart to match. His songs have a timeless quality and he inhabits them wholly, with compassion for the tired troubled traverlers he’s crossed paths with. In the words of the SF Examiner “Glass’ music is a completely selfless experience that is as much about sending out love as it is bringing it in” Seeing him live is an experience not to be missed. http://theeasylove.com/ Chelsea Coleman can frequently be found harmonizing with Aaron and with some of the Bay Area’s finest performers but she really shines singing her own songs. Having created quite a stir in Tulsa and Seattle, she is rapidly becoming a favorite here. Her early recordings were called by the Victroy Music Review“stellar performances of confessional poetry by a young woman trying to figure it out.” https://www.facebook.com/ccolemanmusic I'll be playing a few to round out the night and LInday Repko will once again helping out with the pot pies. See you there! -Brian

Bio: Chelsea Coleman, singing-songwriting machine, was raised in a house that had a ‘piano room’ by parents who painted pictures and played folk songs. she was never not surrounded by good art, and she never had dreams that weren't extraordinary. She got her start in the church halls of Tulsa, Oklaho...See Full Bio
“The songs are personal, naked, and nicely sung. The use of some instruments makes this small collection of six songs seem like somewhat haunted. The lap steel evokes some reverberating sounds of the night. ‘When the Dam Bursts’ about sums up her year of writing. ‘Vera, Vera’ is a pretty ballad (my favorite) but speaks to the pain of memories, “…and I ain’t an island.” This is an unvarnished, unpolished but stellar performance of confessional poetry by a young woman trying to figure it out.”
