Featured artist, Chelsea Williams has played several of our events as a member of The Salty Suites, and now takes a solo turn. Her 2017 album, "Boomerang", gets steady airplay on our public radio station KCBX. Chelsea's made a name for herself as a musician in Los Angeles in a less than traditional way. Without the support of a record label, or radio play, Chelsea managed to sell nearly 100,000 copies of her independently released records the old fashioned way, by playing on the street. Chelsea became the darling of Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade and captured the hearts of locals, tourists and fans from around the world, gaining an impressive following. Among those who have taken note of her talents and frequent her sets include Adam Sandler, Sheryl Crow, LeAnn Rimes, and Ron Howard to name a few. Crosby, Stills, and Nash even sent Chelsea flowers in appreciation of the quality of her cover of "Helplessly, Hoping" they had found on YouTube. More at http://www.chelseawilliams.com
Special guests include Stereo Chickens,Nashville's Sally and George,

Showcases are Mondays 6:30-9pm at Morro Bay Wine Seller, 601 Embarcadero, Morro Bay, (805) 772-8388.

We kick off a new showcase, spotlighting a trio of international touring artists. Swedish singer-songwriters Maria Blom and Annika Fehling shares the featured set with Brett Perkins, California native now based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Brett Perkins has become accustomed to Paul McCartney comparisons since his LA club scene debut in the 1980s ("Reminiscent of a youthful Paul McCartney", said Music Connection Magazine). Brett even wrote a song about it ("Paul McCartney" on his 2009 solo CD, "Red Light, Green Light, Go"). Brett's songwriting style covers a wide range of genres and influences, resulting in his songs being covered by numerous artists in the US and Europe, as well as receiving widespread airplay, film and TV placements (MTV's Road Rules, NBC Movie of the Week). He's also won top prizes at the Great American Song Contest Pop Category and Australian Song Contest International Category, and a top 10 debut single by Sony artist Mads Langer. Brett is currently touring solo, as well as with his Denmark-based band, The Pawnshop Preachers, and California-based trio, Big Wide Room. He produces the Listening Room International Songwriter Retreats, held annually in six countries. http://www.brettperkins.com Annika FehlingTouring internationally, Annika Fehling continues to build an enthusiastic following around the world with her exhuberant guitar style and heartfelt songs sung in a voice both passionate and tender. In the U.S., Annika has played at venues as the legendary Bluebird Café in Nashville, and The Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. With roots in Americana, folk, and pop musical styles, Annika writes music for herself, other artists, as well as theater and art exhibitions.
http://www.annikafehling.com/ Special guests on Jan. 12 include local favorites Bob & Wendy, http://bobwendy.com/, plus Temecula's Jessie Andra Smith, http://www.reverbnation.com/jessieandrasmith The showcase will also include Erin Inglish and Duncan Phillips, who are touring together in a show called The Long Memory, celebrating the songs and stories of Duncan's late father, Bruce "Utah" Phillips. http://erininglish.com/2014/01/07/announcing-the-long-memory-tour-remembering-utah-phillips/ - See more at: http://songwritersatplay.com/calendar/#sthash.ZfW8XXM2.dpuf

Songwriters at Play Jude Johnstone Tribute - 7:30pm

1531 Monterey St
San Luis Obispo California 93401
US 805 547-0278
Price: $12

Cambria resident Jude Johnstone has played several Songwriters At Play tributes, covering songs by Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen. Tonight, we turn the tables, and present an evening of her songs, performed by some of the Central Coast's best acoustic artists. The lineup includes Bob & Wendy, Ynana Rose, Jill Knight, Nicole Stromsoe, Karen Tyler, Holly Ann Phillips, Aaron Porter, Steve Key, Jude's daughter Ray Duncan, and a closing set by Jude herself.
Jude's songs have been recorded by pop stars Stevie Nicks, Bette Midler, Johnny Cash, Jennifer Warnes, Emmylou Harris, and Bonnie Raitt. Country star Trisha Yearwood cut several of Johnstone’s songs, beginning with the intimate ballad, and number one country hit, “The Woman Before Me.” Jude is also a recording artist with six CDs in release. Preview her songs at http://judejohnstone.com/ Jude Johnstone has had her share of unforgettable moments during her three-decade music career. Fresh out of high school, she found herself seated next to Clarence Clemons, the E Street Band’s sax player, on an airplane. Afterward, he was so taken with the demo she sent that he invited her to recording sessions for The River and got her hooked up with Bruce Springsteen producer Chuck Plotkin in L.A. Then there were the singular songwriters—T Bone Burnett and Leonard Cohen, to name two—who recognized in her a kindred spirit and asked her to sing on their albums, and the legendary Motown bassist James Jamerson who’d show up early at her weekly gigs just because he enjoyed helping her decide which songs to put on the set list. Once, she even received an out-of-the-blue invitation to pen lyrics to music composed by Bob Dylan, who’s not only the archetypal singer-songwriter of the modern era but a pretty darn infrequent co-writer.
Advance tickets are available at the Steynberg Gallery, 1531 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo. Or call 805-547-0278. Tickets are $12. Come early for a good seat -- show begins at 7:30pm. The Steynberg Gallery cafe serves beer and wine, dinner and dessert items, gourmet coffee and tea.
