This event is all ages
The Shakers were formed in 2009 when guitarist and music catalyst Chris Lee moved to Los Angeles to form a project to help him realize the music he’d been writing over the past year at that time. The project grew and evolved over 7 years and spawned 2 full length albums, 2011’s “Oh So Loud” and 2013’s “Rescue Team.” The group toured all over the East and West Coasts and have opened for the likes of Our Lady Peace, Everclear, The Motels, Semi-Precious Weapons and Warner Drive.
In 2014 the band was honored by having their album “Rescue Team” turned into a living breathing work of aerial astonishment at the hands of Jordann Baker Skipper, creator of Shapeshifter.
Audra Mae & The Almighty Sound
Audra Mae was born and raised in Oklahoma. The oldest of 6 children, and brought up in music theatre, she left home at 18 to pursue a career in recording music. Audra tried College outside of Nashville, TN for a year. However, after realizing she spent little time in class and, instead, wrote songs all day, Audra Mae decided to move to Los Angeles. Two years after arriving in LA, and playing live shows, Audra Mae earned a deal with Warner Chappell Publishing. She has now lived in Los Angeles for five years and in November of 2008 her cover of Bob Dylan’s "Forever Young" was featured on the "FX" series "Sons of Anarchy". Audra Mae’s new EP is an introduction to the artist and showcases her ability to create and interpret genuinely infectious melodies and lyrics giving the listener a true sense of Audra’s perspective on her experiences.
Once the Oklahoma native opens her mouth and lets loose with that voice, pure and strong, with a hint of country twang and a twinkle of good humor, you realize this is what she’s meant to do; Stand in front of an audience and entertain, not just with her singing, but a distinctive songwriting voice, one that’s capable of relating fully developed characters and stories.
