As many of you know, Faultline Fridays has become a great success and this Friday will be no exception! Faultline Fridays is a casual monthly gathering of the musical minds of The Bay Area with the goal to create a greater sense of community in our beloved music scene. We are taking it one step further by bringing in some of the Bay Area’s top artists to perform and be recorded right in front of you. All guests that give their email address will receive a link to download one or more of the live recordings. We are pleased to have Valerie Orth as our debut recording guest THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28th 5-9!

Valerie has been described as “sexy, soulful, genuine, and edgy” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and an “indie folk powerhouse” by Bend’s Source Weekly, Valerie Orth is a fearless and genre-bending songwriter. Her distinctive hybrid of rock, groove, soul, and folk reaches out and grabs your attention; her live performances captivate and charm at once.

Rich with melody and metaphor, Orth’s tunes move nimbly between darkness and light, hope and despair, taking deft turns of phrase along unforeseen rhythmic twists in the road. With gorgeous, multi-octave vocals and no fear of heights, she flirts with the edge as readily as she subverts expectations.

“Unpredictable and highly original,“ writes the Jefferson Agrarian. “Just when you think she’s going to settle into a familiar groove, off she flies into the stratosphere with phrasings you never saw coming.”

Orth’s dynamic range as a performer is made all the more compelling by what the East Bay Express calls a “completely intuitive composition style.”

Orth grew up, as she puts it, “singing before I could talk.” That penchant led from musical theater productions in her youth to an African diaspora choir at Tufts University. Along the way, she studied drumming and dance in Ghana. But her background is mainly in activism. She campaigned for a women’s studies department at Tufts and organized rallies for fair trade and environmental justice. After graduating, Orth took a job with Green Corps, then moved to San Francisco and became a labor organizer for Global Exchange. She challenged corporate behemoths like Procter & Gamble and led the effort to pass San Francisco’s anti-sweatshop law in 2005.

After a few years of burning the midnight oil on grassroots campaigns that often found her working over 70 hours a week, Valerie decided to return to her musical roots, hopeful that her art might have similar impact to her work in social justice. “Songwriting and performing are basic necessities in my life,” she says. “I couldn’t stand the idea of not singing.”

Her new CD, Faraway City, which the East Bay Express described as “a remarkable piece of work,”features Scott Amendola (Charlie Hunter) on drums, Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls) on piano and organ, and Jon Evans (Tori Amos) on bass and electric guitar. Produced by Evans, it amply displays Valerie’s range as composer, lyricist, and singer.

“I think we went a bit more ‘out-there’ than the regular singer-songwriter genre,” says Orth.

The same can be said of her dynamic live band, which features Veronika Safarova on bass, Eryn Allen on keys, Tyler Lewis on violin and electric guitar, Jeff Marrs on drums, and all of them singing background vocals. Together they have a compelling stage presence, fluid chemistry, and adventurous spirit that continuously gives back to their fans.

This an event not to be missed and be sure to check out Valerie’s new video “Blinding” directed by Dave “Dizmix” Lopez. We hope to see you there!

Combining instruments such as harmonica, accordion and keys over a double dose of guitar, bass and percussion, BURNriverBURN is a five-piece with a sound unique within the hard rock genre. In the face of the shear magnitude of their drop-tuned riffs rise the vocals of front man John Paterson who both hearkens back to a time when hard rock was just emerging and blazes a trail for the next generation to follow. Drummer Kevin Amann and bassist Dan Knight take the band through the elevations of each song like a locomotive pulling a train thought a mountain pass while guitarists Chuck Howell and Ray Morgan paint the ever-changing scenery with epic chord progressions, sanguine melodies and incendiary solos.

The name BURNriverBURN, coined by Howell, is a reference to Cleveland, Ohio and it’s infamous burning river the “Cuyahoga” which, due to massive dumping, was accidentally set ablaze several times in the late 60′s prompting the creation of the EPA.

This moniker is also a testament to the seemingly contradictory levels of pride and humility that engender most Clevelanders. Knight and Howell are no exception. Just to the right of Ohio come Amann and Paterson who hail from Jamestown, New York and Philly respectively, while Ray Morgan, an ex-patriot from Tallaght-Dublin, Ireland is the group’s sole import.

BURNriverBURN is a true democracy with all five members contributing to the writing and arrangement of all songs as well as art and print media.

With enough years in the business to hone their skills and temper their egos, the five members of BURNriverBURN spearhead the conspiracy to bring good old hard
Rock-n-roll back to the forefront of modern music…

The record was mastered here at Faultline Studios by Starita and will be released TODAY, OCTOBER 21st at their cd release party. The party will start at 9pm with a $10 dollar cover which includes a copy of the cd and drinks….you can’t beat that!
