Discounted scotch and some of LA's top acoustic talent? What more could you want?!! Get a bunch of your friends together and end the weekend with a relaxing, inspiring evening.
As you may know, I'm a great supporter of Kyler England and have been a fan of hers since she attended Berklee and performed in Boston in 1998. I've been attending her shows throughout the years and it has been a pleasure to hear/watch her career take off. If you have not heard her live before, the 15th will be a great opportunity. You will instantly become a fan, I promise.
You can hear samples of her amazing music at www.myspace.com/kylerengland and listen to samples from her new band The Rescues at www.myspace.com/therescues.
A bit more about Kyler:
Listening to any Kyler England song, it's easy to believe you're hearing a classic in the making: gorgeous, organic pop music that speaks to your heart like a close friend. Her soulful voice draws you in with its fragile strength, then leaves you breathless when it soars to brilliant heights. She sings like you'd always wished you could, with all the raw honesty of your most painful moments and all the beauty of your fiercest hopes. There is something universal going on here, something magical. Comparisons to Sarah McLachlan and Patty Griffin are mere approximations; Kyler has a style and charisma all her own.
Her past songs have won numerous songwriting awards (Unisong, Mid-Atlantic, and North Carolina Songwriting Contests), have earned her recognition by the International Acoustic Music Awards (Finalist for Best Female Artist), the Indie Acoustic Project (Best Alternative Rock CD), and Music Connection Magazine (Hot 100 Unsigned Artists of 2007), and appeared on TV and in film (Ghost Whisperer, Army Wives, Guiding Light, Zoey 101, Rollergirls, Paradise City and the film ?The Lucky Ones? starring Rachel McAdams and Tim Robbins).
Playing 100+ shows a year the past 5 years including festivals like Bele Chere and the Toronto Film Festival, England has opened for Sting, Annie Lennox, Kelly Clarkson, Gavin DeGraw, Melissa Etheridge and Avril Lavigne to name a few.
