Michael Jost

Born in Dreieich, just outside of Frankfurt Germany, guitarist Michael Jost (pronounced ‘yoast’), found his way to the bohemian Venice Beach boardwalk, in Los Angeles California, where he now lives and makes music.

Owing to Michael’s unique European heritage, his rigorous classical training, and his 21st Century American experience, you can hear something very different in his passionate, Spanish-style guitar. Michael’s travel companion is Miss Lucy, a Flamenca guitar built by Tomas Delgado of Candelas Guitars. She has a strong character, with a warm and beautiful sound.

Michael has a unique sound. His music is a journey in time and space fueled by his passion for music and his instrument. His influences are very multicoloured and involve different styles, continents and time periods from Paco De Lucia and Stravinsky to Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd.

No two of Michael’s live performances are ever the same, drawing from his recent albums, Zeitlos and California Burning, as well as unreleased songs from his upcoming album, Concierto.

Zeitlos is a timeless and unique blend of acoustic, classical and flamenco styles, entwined with the sounds and soul of Venice, California. His earlier album, California Burning, is a psychedelic fusion of electric and acoustic guitar. more Michael Jost »

Alfred Johnson

The highly regarded singer/songwriter and funky piano player, Alfred Johnson, is considered by some as one of this century’s most animated and original songwriters. His energetic style of playing the keys brings a wonderful compliment to his music.

Alfred co-wrote three songs with Rickie Lee Jones on her Platinum Grammy Award winning premiere album containing the hit single ‘Chuck E’s In Love’. Alfred’s songs have been covered by Diane Reeves and Ernie Watts. Recognized as a true craftsman of his art, his musical influences include: Taj Mahal, Leon Russell, Dr. John, Randy Newman, Danny O’Keefe, David Wilcox and Bill Champlin.

He is best known for his amazing lyric-driven tunes that will keep you captivated. Alfred’s musical style is quite diverse and encompasses Funk, New Orleans, Pop, Rock ‘n’ Soul, Gospel, “Rhythm & Bluegrass,” and music that will have you wanting to dance. The emphasis is always on the lyric. Alfred has written about 900 tunes, and at least 70 of them are published. He loves co-writing and has written several songs with Jodi Siegel. Alfred’s been playing the circuit of live venues around Los Angeles for nearly 40 years. Recently, Alfred had a wonderful reunion with Ricki Lee Jones opening for her at the Coach House and that is apparently going to happen again!

The NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SONGWRITERS is quoted as describing Alfred Johnson as “…a talent of this caliber is a rare treat…”, but most everyone else just knows him as an amazing person and prolific writer with unique spirit and drive.

“Alfred Johnson is one of those writers writers who, like Cole Porter, Marie Caine and Stephen Soundheim, takes your breath away with the sheer craft of it, and makes you proud to be in this often under-acknowledged profession of songwriting.” – HARRIET SHOCK, 1993

“I think he is a genius lyricist, and I really enjoyed his singing. And if that’s him playing the piano, my hats off to [him] in that department, too.” – DAVID FRESHBERG
