SARA TONE:: NEW ROOTS MUSIC 4 GAIA CULTURE!! Sara Tone has been dedicated to bringing a steady stream of music that expresses the Joys and Celebration of Creation. Deeply moved, she finds fuel for the fire of this expression through Vigilance and Awareness of the state of the Earth and our Relationship to Land. Inspired by her travels and tours throughout the West Coast, Cascadia, B.C., Minnesota, and Hawaii, Sara Tone comes with Songs and Stories to help connect the Community through Music to that Sacred relationship!

BRIGHTSIDE BLUE: "This love story has a soundtrack." Lindsay Bellows and Ananda Vaughan have found the perfect complements in each other: Lindsay, a songbird in human form, vocally soars with soft and radiant wings over the lush textures of Ananda's musical landscapes. Equal parts groove and melody, their songs keep audiences delightfully engaged -- tapping feet, singing along, and basking in the love for life that radiates from this couple.
Ananda trained for many years as a jazz guitarist, and has found inspiration in other guitar masters from rock, folk and world music. Lindsay grew up with pop and R&B music, and studied the influencers of her childhood idols -- the soul and blues singers of the mid 20th century. The pair brings together the best of all these genres to create a sound that is authentically and uniquely their own.
ARTIST STATEMENT My work is inspired by serendipity, a momentary feeling of interconnected magic, that often feels like a dream. I am motivated to create images that bring peaceful energy to the viewer, a place of remembrance, a place of innocence. The Oracular tendency keeps me fascinated by the mystical process.
