Invitation To a First Love

We love music over here and one of our inspirations has long been the one we’ve grown for singer/songwriter Nanci Griffith.  This song (Ford Econoline) is one that challenges a singer, and delights both the singer and audience.

Her interview with Suzy Bogguss reminds us of who she is as an artist — and it introduces her life work project – Other Voices, Other Rooms.  We say that this album is “required reading.”

We hope you’ll stay with us as we hunt for the songwriter who will follow in this talented woman’s footsteps. The folks at Be My Guest are out to discover that and we’ll be sure to talk about it here!

Listen to the Art

The folks at 48 Hour Film Project wanted to see what would happen if they paired up some of their most talented competitors with prominent Bay Area artists.

The result was a collection of clips called ArtShots.

This short perspective on musicians Bev & Greg (Bev Barnett and Greg Newlon) evoked the spririt of their music and brought us a glimpse into their lives together as artists.

ArtShots and the 48 Hour Film Project are designed to inspire talented media artists to show off their skill.

In San Francisco right now, you can see what Bay Area filmmakers have created for the 11th 48 Hour Film Project to be held in the City by the Bay. Premiere screenings for the films in the competition can be seen at the Clay Theater on Fillmore St.

Tickets are available online here.
