Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, DIANA GAMEROS creates authentic, inspiring music that reflects the 21st century experiences of an indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Now living In the Bay Area, Diana has played with many local favorites, including the Oakland East Bay Symphony and has opened concerts for Bebel Gilberto, Latin Grammy winners La Santa Cecilia and many others. Last month she performed for two nights at the SF Jazz Festival. In 2013 Diana released her first album Eterno Retorno, a soulful retrospective of her journey as an immigrant. In October of 2014 she received the Emerging Leader Award from the Chicana/Latina Foundation for her work in music and her support to social justice movements. Diana is currently working on writing music for her second album which will be produced by Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade. On this night, Diana will be accompanied by Patrick Wolff (tenor sax/clarinet) and Thomas Edler (upright bass).
With the release of her new album, Ready or Not, MEGAN KEELY is again breaking new ground with songs celebrating life and strength. Her songwriting first caught the attention of producer T Bone Burnett, who selected Megan’s song, Rules (co-written with her brother Brandon) for inclusion on The Hunger Games Soundtrack Companion Album. “Megan Keely is a stunning young woman with a voice that will break your heart and heal it all in one sitting.” – Annie Bacon -The Folk Opera
