    2/21 Next Stage Workshop

    2-21-17 Kevin Sur Next Stage Workshop (photo by Zach Gore)

    FREE – All Ages – Open to the Public

    Next Stage music/arts industry workshop (downstairs Gallery) 

    6:00-8:00 pm with local event producer KEVIN SUR discussing BOOKING & PROMOTION
    (photo credit Zach Gore)

    Kevin will give some some real nuts and bolts of how to go about building momentum for yourself or your band both locally and nationally. The goal of this workshop is so that artists walk away from it realizing that there is no secret club you have to get into when it comes to building an audience, but rather a series of baby steps that lead to more baby steps, that lead to sustained growth and self reliance.

    Kevin and Artist Home have been mentoring and advising any artists seeking advice for free for over 20 years and this will be the firs time he has given a talk of this nature in a more public format.

    “A longtime musician turned event producer, Kevin Sur has worked in the Seattle music industry since 2008. He owns Artist Home Presents, who put on Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, Timbrrr! Winter Music Festival and Sync Music Video Festival, among others. Kevin also co-organizes Doe Bay Fest.” – City Arts Magazine

    • of Chelsey Richardson: “Her writing requires you to think critically and examine the world in which we live…There is a cleverness and creativity in her prose that draws the reader or listener in.” ~ The CD Forum for Arts Ideas

    • of Beth Whitney: There is a simple honesty in Beth’s lyrics that makes one yearn to be sitting on the porch of a cabin in the woods, sipping coffee and living a life far away from the stresses of the big city.”- Keith Stancil, Music Gardener

    • of Emy Reynolds (elkke): “…harmony-laden, orchestral folk sounds out of the forest.”

    • of The Brambles: The Brambles have that heavenly harmony thing going on, which is always a good thing.”— Bill Locey Music Writer Ventura County Star

    Sound Bath experience with
    Daniella White, Daniel Blue, Luk Will 

    All ages, very quiet event. Bring your own yoga mat or soft blanket to lay down on. Tea will be available for donation.

    @ St Mark’s Cathedral, 1245 10th Ave East, free parking onsite.

    7:00p doors, 7:30p start.

     

    Capacity is limited for this event.  Bring your own yoga mat if possible, we will have a limited number of mats & cushions available. Tea will be available for donation. All ages, very quiet event. No cameras or phones please. 

    From the artists: “Come try a brand new chill-out music experience. Have a cup of steaming herbal tea goodness, bring your yoga mat, lay down or lean on a pillow and let yourself be taken away on a healing journey with songs by Lucas Williams and Daniel Blue specially selected to blend with the meditation inducing and transportive sounds of Daniella White’s rock-star-approved “sound bath”. 
    (No yoga poses required) 

    A sound bath is an improvised concert played with the intent of releasing energy that is no longer serving you, and shifting to a more positive and relaxed state of being. Participants usually lie in a comfortable position on the floor (in savasana). Daniella plays the crystal bowls and gongs, accompanied by shamanic vocal toning. During the savasana you will be bathed in healing vibrations that will help you achieve deep states of relaxation, where healing can take place.

    ‘I’ve attended two of Daniella’s baths and had several personal sessions. There’s something especially magical about the way she understands and organizes sound waves with human consciousness. I always walk away a different person with more clarity and hope and courage to face the “noise” of modern chaos. I’ve begun to study and participate with Daniella in baths because as a musician, I find sound healing absolutely fascinating, and I find it nearly impossible not asking if I can play along. Lucas and I have had many sessions of meditative sound collaboration on more traditional rock instruments and a shared dream of developing a healing/spirituality based project to take on the road. When he appeared back from Montana with a freshly recorded solo album asking for shows, Daniella and I were in the process of carefully adding soft bass and drums to her traditional bowl and gong ceremony. I quickly realized that the three of us could put on one crazy magical show.’
    – Daniel Blue
