Sara Rodenburg & Amy Obenski

Sara Rodenburg
-----------------
Sara is a Chicago-born, American singer-songwriter based in the Bay Area. Sara’s soulful lyrics express insight, depth, and honest perspective on life’s journey. Influenced by songwriters like John Prine, Elvis Costello, Gillian Welch, and Gram Parsons, Sara’s own songs express her own path through her music. While living in Long Beach, Sara played many popular Southern California venues like DiPiazza, and in the Bay area at San Francisco's Hotel Utah, Bazaar Cafe, Plough and Stars, and Napa's City Winery, Blue Note, Silo's, and Bottlerock 2014. While Ms. Rodenburg’s style is uniquely her own, comparisons range from Joni Mitchell, Liz Phair and Jenny Lewis.

Currently, Sara can be found touring the Bay Area playing acoustic folk-rock with melodic soul in clubs and coffeehouses, and festivals.

Amy Obenski
--------------
Taking live looping to the next level, Amy layers multiple instruments and harmonies upon her own performance. Each song evolves and unfolds in a mesmerizing, hypnotically enticing journey. With lyrics about the experience of being human, her music has a way of connecting with pretty much anyone on a deeply personal level. And to describe her voice, it’s common to hear words like “Clear”, “Pure” and “Haunting”.

Amy’s a California native. After growing up in San Diego, she moved to Santa Cruz for college (go slugs!) and after a fifteen year love affair with the town, moved on to San Francisco where she’s lived since 2012. She’s toured the U.S. and Europe, plus recorded and toured with her own French band (The Carbone Band), along with an Artist in Residence in Saint Herblain, France. You also may have heard her song, Carousel, on the hit TV Show, Grey’s Anatomy.

Amy’s musical history stretches back to age five, when she began singing in her school choir. She took up piano at age six and has been studying music ever since. She finally picked up the guitar when she began songwriting at twenty-two.

During her long residence in Santa Cruz, she supported local organizations through two benefit concerts called Take Back Your Forest. Collectively they raised six thousand dollars for the Sempervirens Fund, an organization that purchases and protects redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She continues to support these types of organizations as much as possible. In 2012, her Carbon Conscious global tour raised awareness about the burning of rainforest in South America and the affects on climate change.
