Andrea Carter - Composer/Lyricist/Guitarist/Vocalist

Andrea CarterAndrea Carter has been composing since the age of five!

Playing guitar, writing lyrics, and singing was always a part of her life. But 15 years ago, it became a major part, performing with her own band "Andrea's Fault" (which for those not living in California, the name is from the famous earthquake fault line: The San Andreas Fault).

She now is a full-time prolific singer/songwriter and able to capture your story down to the last detail with warmth, poignancy and humor.

Her sultry voice, reminiscent of 1940's Torch Songstresses, adds to the romance of her music. Her lilting ability to switch from one octave to the next is evocative of Sarah McLaughlin.

Reviews from her fans are sensational! Here are just a few:

From Mike in Indiana:
Wow! What a surprise...A little Diana Krall and Norah Jones mixture, with original lyrics and a great sounding group all together!
  From Robert in California:
What greatly impresses me is the "jazz classic" qualities of Andrea Carter's original melodies and poetic lyrics; this plus the fine performances by vocalist and band.
  From Elissa in Southern California:
I love Andrea's lyrics! She wrote about my fiancé and me and absolutely nailed it! He laughed…and teared up! It was a great success! Now he is in love with Andrea ;-)

Andrea was featured in the "Spirit of PG" column on page 8 of the January 20, 2010 issue of the Pacific Grove Bulletin.

Jaimsy Kennedy - Composer/Lyricist/Vocalist

Jaimsy Kennedy, composer, lyricist and vocalistJaimsy Kennedy has been singing and writing commercial jingles and songs professionally since her teens!

Her first radio spot (for "Ladies Choice Pickles") was recorded at Capital Records in Los Angeles. Elektra Records produced her first demo in New York City the weekend of the Woodstock Festival. She has performed on film soundtracks for Disney Studios and MGM and has won several national awards for her songwriting. In her teens, she even appeared in an Elvis Presley movie: "The Trouble With Girls and How To Get In It."

Jaimsy's toured the United States in concert so often, she's no longer sure where she's been – but "it must be everywhere by now!" She's been a back-up vocalist for Shirley Jones and Burl Ives and opening act for Lily Tomlin and Bill Cosby.

She loves to sing from the Great American Songbook – the steamy ballads and swinging melodies of the 30's and 40's – the love songs of Broadway – the folk song sing-alongs of the New Christy Minstrels and her own quirky little gems that make 'em laugh.

Her production skills and vocalist chops have her in demand in recording studios from Los Angeles to Seattle. Musical and humorous, her live shows are favorites with audiences of all ages!

Here are a few rave reviews:

Monterey County Herald:
Beguiles with song, wit and a twinkling good nature!
  Fifth Row Center, Carmel:
Sweet looking and funny!
  Carmel Pine Cone:
Radiantly pretty and with a voice as pure as a spring morning!
