Private Parlor Show with Amy Matarazzo and Rachel Garlin

Amy Matarazzo

Public school teacher by day, singer-songwriter by afternoon and evening, Amy Matarazzo is a New Jersey native who now calls the Bay Area home. Amy grew up playing trumpet, baritone and percussion, and later picked up the guitar in college. Predominantly self-taught, Amy wrote her first songs on guitar while earning an advertising degree along the banks of the Hudson River. Some ten years later, she continues to write thoughtful, varied and visual songs about love, identity, and growing up.

You can find Amy playing in living rooms, at coffee shops, behind art galleries, around campfires, and other intimate spaces around the Bay Area and beyond.

Rachel Garlin

Rachel Garlin is a Bay-Area-born troubadour whose character-filled songs have been noted for their vivid, lyrical imagery and themes that are "fresh and often unexpectedly moving" (East Bay Express).

In between her Berkeley childhood and her current life in San Francisco, Garlin has traveled the miles and miles that come with being an indie artist. From Phoenix to NYC and from Boston to South Florida to Scotland, she's toured as a mostly-solo act, collecting stories and creating musical vignettes while headlining at nationally recognized venues such as Club Passim, The Bitter End, and The Freight and Salvage.

Garlin started her career as a school teacher. All the while there has been another call to adventure, a tugging on the guitar strings that has moved her to write and record and tour and perform. Her April 2015 release, Wink at July, continues in the folk-rock storytelling vein that brought her accolades from the New York Songwriter’s Circle, Performing Songwriter Magazine, and won her first place in the Newport Folk Festival’s Talent Search. Media fans include Curve Magazine (“storytelling at its best” ) and Diffuser Magazine (“an impressive catalogue of unforgettable stories.”) Garlin’s songs have also aired on Click and Clack's Car Talk, NPR’s Democracy Now, and radio stations throughout the country. Her live performances bring together a natural stage presence and the same folk, rock, and Americana flavors that season her recordings.
