For over four decades and 28 album releases Tom Russell has continued to live up to his status as “one
of the best singer-songwriters of our time
” (Washington Post). His previous two studio releases, Blood
and Candle Smoke
(2009) and Mesabi (2011), are considered his strongest composed works yet and were,
in part, recorded with the ground-breaking roots band Calexico.

In the 1990s, Russell and
Dave Alvin were hailed as the architects of what came to be known as
“Americana” music after their Merle Haggard tribute,
Tulare Dust, initiated the Americana charts in
Americana into a new realm and his acclaimed song catalog into uncharted territory.

Click HERE to read some great quotes about Tom Russell.
  • [Kim Richey] would rule the charts in a land where Marshall Crenshaw was king, Aimee Mann queen,
    and the The Beatles never put out another record after Revolver.” ~ Steve Horowitz, popmatters.com

  • “Richey entices you with sad and unembellished music that reveals an original spirit - and then she
    ensnares you for keeps by making you consider all the noiseless sensations that no songs can ever
    contain.” ~ Timothy White, Billboard Magazine
Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim Richey is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of
heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where
words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul. And then there’s her voice. Pure, arresting and honest,
her voice makes you take notice; Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, they’d be
streaming in rainbow colours from your iPod. Her voice gives you goose bumps.

The 15-year musical journey that has led Kim to her latest album, "Wreck Your Wheels" has been a dream run. Aside from her two Grammy
nods
, she has released five critically acclaimed albums; been listed in the Top 10 Albums of 1999 in Time Magazine for her album "Glimmer",
and been given
4 stars in Rolling Stone and named Alt-Country Album Of The Year in People Magazine for her album "Rise". She has written
two Number 1s and four Top 10 hits in the USA and singles in the Top 50. She has had her songs recorded by the likes of Trisha Yearwood and
James Morrisson among others; sung on albums by Ryan Adams, Shawn Colvin and Mary Chapin Carpenter and even appeared on a William
Shatner record produced by Ben Folds. Kim has worked with producer legends such as Bill Bottrell (Sheryl Crow, Michael Jackson, Tom Petty)
and Hugh Padgham (The Police, XTC, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie) as well as Giles Martin (The Beatles “Love”) and Steve Earle collaborator
Richard Bennett, plus she's had her music featured in films and TV and has toured all over the world. Not bad for a girl from Ohio who was a
teacher before realising she wanted to be a musician.

Kim's sixth album, "Wreck Your Wheels" is a return to her more
Americana roots. Lyrically driven and beautifully produced, "Wreck Your
Wheels" is a record that gets into your head and heart and stays there. So does it matter whether it's Americana, Alt-country or Pop? We say,
forget the labels. Just listen to the music. Decide for yourself.

It's A Beautiful Day is most famous for their song "White Bird", a melancholy ballad that stood out not only for its memorable vocal melody
and "seize the day" message, but also for front man David Laflamme's slow-burning violin solo.  Their albums were laced with classic cuts such as
"Hot Summer Day", "Bombay Calling", "Girl With No Eyes", "Wasted Union Blues", "Time Is", "Dolphins", "Misery Loves Company", and many
more you'll remember.

Today the band performs the music of It's A Beautiful Day along with newer material, moving effortlessly from an almost folksy sound to ethereal
jazz to psychedelic to straight on rock & roll, performing selections from three new CDs and over seven of their previous albums.  The show is
enhanced with David Laflamme's delightful reminiscing of the San Francisco Summer of Love Days and 40 plus years of performing.

The current band boasts the longest continuous lineup of 15 years, with the exception of their new guitarist, with 4 of the 6 members going back
35-40 years:  
David LaFlamme on violin and vocals, Linda LaFlamme vocals, original drummer Val Fuentes, 35 year veteran Toby Gray on bass, 15
year veteran Gary Thomas on keyboards and newest member Rob Cunningham on guitar.
