David Sparrow

David Sparrow grew up in the boonies outside of Baltimore, MD singing in the church choir, listening to his mom’s piano playing, and absorbing his dad’s classic country and rock records. Under the influence of his uncle’s metal shredding and his grandfather’s flat-picking it was inevitable he’d pick up a guitar.

He has always enjoyed entertaining a crowd whether it be an acoustic set or a full-on rock show.

The music bug brought him to Los Angeles in the summer of 2003 and he’s been “touring” the city ever since. He can be caught sometimes at The Cinema Bar and often at various restaurants and wineries around the city.

His music falls somewhere between The Beatles and Ryan Adams and anything that’s got a catchy hook.

A solo album “Beggars and Choosers” is slated for November 2018 and you can hear the title track live at www.davidsparrowmusic.com.

Cristina Vane

Based out of Venice Beach, Los Angeles, 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 folk, creating her own flavor of the blues. Whether on the Venice boardwalk busking by the beach or on a stage on the Sunset Strip, her signature silver resonator, slide guitar 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. 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.

She has been performing in the Southern California area for two years, and spent summers gigging in both New York and London previous to her move to Venice. Her effervescent and edgy personality make for entrancing live performances, which she has honed with hours of practice playing in venues across the city as well as busking for the public on Venice Beach. It is safe to say Cristina lives through music, it saturates her life and is, for her, a necessary vehicle for expression.
