jean mann, Annie Bacon, and Nina Jo Smith - Private Parlor Show (($10 adv/$15 day of show))

"jean mann is a very special artist."
Cyndi Lauper

A personable, jazz-tinged folk/Americana songwriter, Seattle-based jean mann performs her eclectic, soulful fare on ukulele, tenor/acoustic guitars and harmonica, to accompany an arresting, texture-laden vocal range. She has shared the stage with Vicci Martinez, and opened for Blame Sally. Her songs have been included in film soundtracks.

jean has been touring regionally and nationally since 2000, and to Europe since 2014. She is touring the West Coast this Spring in support of her sixth record release, "road girl."

"I love your voice and music!" - Jacqui Naylor

Arriving in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2001 just days before the Sept 11th attacks, Bacon has been shaped by the increasing complexity of modern life – politically and personally. But it was becoming a mother in 2011 that changed the creative game for her. Not only did the lack of time and sleep teach her to work harder and with more focus, but she learned a secret of parenthood: that explosive overwhelming love for a child can be matched in the opposite by the extraordinary pain of loss.

Leaning briefly and barely close to that loss after a health scare with her son, Bacon’s songwriting experienced a massive evolution. Where before she sang sad songs in the major key, pitting emotions against each other, now she leans head on into the emotional expression of each song, creating visceral cinematic music with her capable band.

Bacon also composed a folk opera in 2009. Haunting folk melodies and harmonies meet operatic hyperbole, creating indelible characters and an unforgettable musical experience. It was adapted as a verse puppet play by Alphabet Arts for Brooklyn's Puppets & Poets Festival in 2013.

Nina Jo Smith

Nina Jo stole her mom's guitar at about nine years of age and taught herself to play from records, the Joan Baez songbook, and the classic folk song book by John and and Alan Lomax. She kept this up for a good long while and started writing songs in her teens. Don’t worry, she eventually returned her Mom's guitar. Nina Jo took a long break from music while life intervened, but has been back at it for quite awhile now.

"I like a song that goes from the sublime to the ridiculous and back again.
My lyrics are mostly nonfiction because reality is so much stranger and more beautiful." -- Nina Jo
