Bo Carper and Paige Clem with Jordan Feinstein - Private Parlor Show (($10 before/$15 day of show))

Bo Carper

Bo Carper is a co-founding member of New Monsoon. He started the band in Bolinas, CA with guitarist Jeff Miller in 1998. Bo also performs in an acoustic duo with Lebo, and the eclectic guitar trio One Big Guitar, which adds Scott Law to their mix.

Carper’s rootsy and reflective acoustic guitar style is contrasted by a fiery repertoire of right hand tapping and percussive techniques. His occasional banjo & dobro playing is very unconventional and blends a love of North Indian & West African music with his deep West Virginia roots. Carper moved from WV to Central PA at age 15 and later studied Film Production at Penn State before moving to California in 1994. He cites Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Willie McTell as heavily influential, along with fingerstyle legends Michael Hedges & Leo Kottke. Plus Chris Smither, Ry Cooder, Ali Farka Toure and Steve Tibbetts as deeply inspirational.

Perhaps it’s the combination of her insatiable musical curiosity and her formative years spent growing up in the South, but Paige Clem’s arrestingly direct lyrics and velvety, unaffected vocals exude that most elusive of musical qualities — Soul. With a natural gift for connecting with an audience, her roots-infused music is melodic and warm, yet packs a punch with tales of loss and love. Described by Jambase as a "charismatic and affable singer-songwriter...with a sultry, Jewel-reminiscent vocal quality," her folk-soul-with-a-dash-of-sass sound draws on threads of blues and Americana with an honest and often clever accessibility that offers listeners a refreshing departure from the formulaic nature of so much indie rock these days.

San Francisco-based, Paige performs her original material as a solo artist and in Paige & The Clementines—an Americana music project that gathers a cast of talented players with Paige's soulful songwriting prowess. When not performing her original material, Paige can be found singing as a member of the popular Grateful Dead tribute band, The Eleven, Bob Dylan and Neil Young tribute, Shakey Zimmerman, the retro/soul tribute, Paige & The Rage, and frequently lending supporting vocals to various Bay Area acts and showcases. She has shared the stage with countless bands and artists including members of Dead and Co., Further, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, ALO, Fruition, Anders Osborne, RatDog, Achilles Wheel, Eric McFadden, Scott Pemberton, Tea Leaf Green, New Monsoon, Moonalice, Tracorum, Front Country, Midnight North, Dead Winter Carpenters, Shook Twins, Doobie Decibel System, and has performed with Melissa Ethridge, moe., Joe Craven, Steve Poltz, The Brother's Comatose, Jerry Hannan, James Nash, Mark Karan and more.

Paige has served multiple stints as songwriter-in-residency at The Bazaar Cafe and is the creator, curator and host of the popular "Songs About Something: Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Tunes in the Round"—an ongoing monthly songwriters-in-the-round series held at Albany's Ivy Room. Her bluesy yet melodic approach to song has been shared from the stage at High Sierra Music Festival, DelFest, Hangtown Halloween Ball, Cuko Rakko Music Festival, ULUV Music Day and many of the Bay Area’s most popular haunts, including The Fillmore, The Great American Music Hall, Terrapin Crossroads, Boom Boom Room, Freight & Salvage, Sweetwater Music Hall, Ashkenaz and more.

Paige will be featured in the upcoming documentary, The Creative High, and is currently recording her debut solo album slated to be released in the Fall of 2017.
