MIMI GILBERT & JEFF PIANKI
Mimi Gilbert has a presence that can only be described as mesmerizing. Even as a tiny human, Mimi manages to command the attention of everyone in the room. Gilbert's voice makes you want to skip through the awkward stages of a first time friend or a new lover and get straight down to it. “Who are you? How do you feel?” she asks. And we all answer truthfully and openly because what other option does she leave us with? Mimi discovered her love for music and performance on the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle as a teenager. Now having spent the last two years based in Melbourne, Australia and touring consistently in the USA, she looks forward to bringing her band and some solo songs back through the West Coast with anticipation for her 3rd full length album to be release later this year. She has been support act to the likes of Julia Jacklin (AU), Angie McMahon (AU, Lissie (USA), and is consistently working to come back to tour her favorite cities and intimate venues on the west coast USA. Mimi and her band look forward to their run of shows this summer 2020.
Los Angeles-based Jeff Pianki started releasing his peculiar brand of introspective self-recorded songwriting over a decade ago. After nearly nine years of keeping quiet, Jeff has returned with his long-awaited debut album, to be released in the spring of 2020. Taking a different approach from previous material, Jeff enlisted the help of longtime friend/collaborator/producer Steven James Aguilar (David Bazan, Damien Jurado, The Head and the Heart).
