This Solvang edition of the popular Los Angeles music series, Wine & Song, will feature Chauncey Bowers, Cynthia Carle, plus Brad Colerick and his house band — David Plenn and Peter Frieberger.
The influence of songwriting heroes Randy Newman and John Prine can be discerned in Chauncey Bowers’ biting wit and wordplay. His sly new album, The Benefit of Doubt, dives back into the metaphysically corkscrewed universe of his 2014 debut, Rumors of Reason.
Cynthia Carle has been a frequent musical contributor to Comedy Central Stage’s Sit N Spin and I Love a Good Story. She and collaborator Mark Nutter received rave reviews for their musical Christmas Smackdown, in its production at iO in Chicago, and at the Laurie Beechman in New York. Cynthia appeared in the Stuart Gordon-Mark Nutter hit, Re-Animator the Musical at the Steve Allen Theater in Los Angeles, where it received five Ovation Award nominations.
Billboard Magazine called Brad Colerick “One of a baker’s dozen of acts to watch in the folk community around the world.” Colerick has been presenting Wine & Song since 2009. The Pasadena Weekly called it “an inviting community hub for musicians, songwriters, wine-geeks and music fans.…”
