Since quitting her job as a full-time audio engineer, self-described "post-brontosaurus indie folk/crunk" sinner/songwriter Rebecca Loebe has played an average of 150 shows per year in almost 40 states of the US and in Europe. An invitation to audition for NBC's new hit singing competition "The Voice," in 2011 led to her performance of an original arrangement of Nirvana's 'Come As You Are' on the premiere episode of the program. Her performance caught the attention of celebrity coaches Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera, and her version of the song landed in the iTunes Top 100 in the US, Europe and South America, peaking at #7 on the iTunes Alternative Chart in the US. Although appearing on a television show seen by 12 million people in the first of its many international airings gave her career an undeniable boost, Loebe had already been supporting herself as a fulltime touring indie/roots singer/songwriter for 4 years. In the May of 2009 she was honored as a winner of the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Award, and the next year her full-length album ‘Mystery Prize’ spent over 2 months on both the US and European Americana Charts and was named by the AMA as one of the Top 100 Albums of the Year.
KC Turner is the pure singer/songwriter, offering heartfelt songs with a touch of humor. He is probably better-known as San Francisco’s premier promoter of top-flight national and local musicians, at house concerts and at some of the most prominent venues in the Bay Area. John Craigie says “If you don't know the name KC Turner, you don't know the Bay Area music scene."
