On June 7, the Pescadero Grown! Farmers' Market will play host to one of the South Coast’s favorite local musicians. Folk-Pop Singer/Songwriter, Paula Brisker, is a Bay Area musician with a notable career, a powerful collection of her work represented in her debut CD entitled, "Narrow Road." Released in November 2001, "Narrow Road" is a collection of original songs that blur the boundaries between folk, pop and rock. Her music, both performed and showcased on her CD, is mellifluous yet sometimes haunting. The melodies accompanied by the strumming, thumping, and finger picking of the acoustic guitar are at the heart of Paula’s unique songwriting style. Having furthermore collaborated with a group of world-class musicians led by a Grammy winning Producer, her work is truly of the highest quality and touches the hearts and souls of all it’s listeners.
Still pleasing audiences over a decade after this first CD launch, Paula plays in a wide variety of venues both solo and with her band. The foundation of the group includes such names as drummer Joey Peters of Cracker and Grant Lee Buffalo, guitarist Ty Stevens of Mandy Moore, and bassist Tad Wadhams of Cheryl Crow and Bernie Taupin. Additional musicians include Rami Jaffee & Ben Peeler of The Wallflowers, Cameron Stone, Tim Pierce, David Channing, and Robert Powell to round out the group for bigger shows. This week, though, she will appear unaccompanied.
Sponsored by Puente, the Community Resource Center for the South Coast, Pescadero Grown! is thrilled to have Paula back to perform this year. Paula Brisker has been called a “shining light in music. Her music is honest, simple yet complex and a joy to be a part of … I look forward to what the future holds for Paula and feel that the best is even yet to come for her and her fans," says Ross Hogarth - Producer/Engineer. The Pescadero Grown! Farmers’ Market is happy to be a part of that future, this June 7 from 3-7pm.
Come on out to Stage Road next to the Pescadero Country store for a great afternoon of music, local produce and more!
