Gabriel Gonzalez and Jess Weaver came together in 2020 to write an Album of hits, “The Full Moon Project”. Each song was accompanied with its own Music Video they self produced. Now we continue this tradition once more with a full band ( Vernon West, Andrew Galleran, Garrett Crouch ) releasing a song and video on YouTube every month for the next year. We built our own backyard stage called “The Mess” and host a monthly show with fellow artist and musicians.
Raised on the soulful voices of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, Lily Bloom immersed herself in the emotional world of the blues at a young age. She has cultivated her own sound and draws influences from jazz, hip hop, Americana, and good old fashioned rock and roll. A harpist, pianist, and singer, Lily composes all of her own pieces, which are at once deeply personal attempts to grapple with her past and present, as well as more universal appeals to listeners’ senses of vulnerability and self-understanding.

Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, Cristina Vane is taking the town by storm with her unique blend of blues and folk. Originally from Europe, she draws from such a great host of influences that it is impossible to compare her music to any one artist. That being said, she draws decisively from country blues, delta blues, and American folk music, creating her own flavor of the blues. Whether on the Venice boardwalk busking by the beach or on a stage in Mississippi, her signature resonator bottleneck playing and powerful vocals are unmistakable and unforgettable.
Before falling in love with the blues, Cristina spent her childhood and adolescence studying classical voice, music theory, piano and flute, ever consumed by music. She has love for many kinds of music, ranging from baroque classical to punk and metal. This theme continues throughout her career today; while she predominantly plays slide guitar, she employs fingerpicking, acoustic, electric guitar techniques, as well as clawhammer banjo playing.
Cristina had been performing in the Southern California area for nearly four years when she embarked on a 5 month tour, summer of 2018. While Cristina spent summers gigging in both New York and London previous to her move to Venice, she had never traveled the United States extensively and found her tour to be a personal and musical success. Her effervescent and edgy personality make for entrancing live performances, which she has honed with hours of practice playing in venues across the country as well as busking for the public on Venice Beach for several years. It is safe to say Cristina lives through music, it saturates her life and is, for her, a necessary vehicle for expression.
Milo Gonzalez is a guitarist born of a multi-generational family of artists and musicians native to Venice Beach. With his mother being a rock vocalist, and his step father being a founding member of the renowned hardcore punk band Black Flag, Milo grew up around heavy rock music.
Inspired to play both electric and acoustic guitar, Milo discovered a deep love for flamenco and classical guitar music, finding it’s dark, emotive, and aggressive qualities alluring and similar to that of his rock roots. Milo has developed a unique and hard to define style of music that derives as much influence from legendary guitar virtuosos such as Paco De Lucia, and Vicente Amigo, as it does from rock/metal/psychedelic legends like Black Sabbath and Radiohead.
