The Magic Juju Boathouse Concerts Fall 2010 Concert Series presents:

A special evening with pianist, singer, songwriter Amie Penwell!! (with special guest-to be announced) Saturday, November 6th at 8PM, (doors open at 7PM)

http://amiepenwell.net/
Please listen to Amie at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbgoIVFwfFo

$15 per person at the door-exact change helps. All of which goes to the musician.

More about Amie: Amie was on the cover of Somojo Magazine for their Spring 2010 issue where she has been #1 on the Urban Grooves Chart with her song What Would Love Do? off of her Self Titled EP for 10 weeks! Penwell has played Yoshi's SF for the second time in 6 months, and is in negotiation with threepublishing companies for song placement. Amie signed a deal with SBMP (South Beach Music Publishing) and will be heard throughout Asia and Australia. In addition to using Amie's songs Mercy and Show Me To The River for Elephant documentary "Eye's Of Thailand" DVA Productions used Ending or Beginning off of Amie's critically acclaimed CD King In a Temple for Women's Health Specialist Commercial released in April of 2010
Derek Sivers—indie music pioneer and founder of CD Baby—and Eugene Foley—the music industry guru referred to by many as "Dr. Gene"—hand picked Penwell out of 500 artists for an 8-week coaching session (on Derek's dime) to help launch the record. Foley is now Penwell's official manager.

Raised in Texas on a musical diet of Antonio Carlos Jobim, James Taylor, and ’60s radio, 21-year-old Emily Elbert fell in love with guitar when she was 15. She set her sights on Berklee College of Music and began winning awards – she was most recently named one of Glamour magazine’s “Top 10 College Women of 2010″. Now the Berklee junior has played over 350 shows internationally, from Alaska to Memphis, Austin to New York City, and Scotland, Puerto Rico, Saint-Barthélemy and Peru.
Emily has opened for artists as diverse as Richie Havens, G Love and Special Sauce, Janis Ian, Kaki King, Patty Larkin, Kate Voegele. Music lovers have watched her YouTube videos in droves, including over 250,000 views of her version of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Named the Best New Artist of 2008 by WUMB-FM in Boston, she released her second album, Proof, in September 2010. It features Emily at her best, with strong melodies, straight-to-the-heart vocals, and intricate guitar work.

We just got this link from Emily Elbert-a little mini documentary on the making of her latest album "Proof".

Emily has some surprises in store for us and is making a special trip to the Bay Area on her West Coast tour just for us.
We have a little more room than usual so we're giving a special shout out for her. If you have a friend or two you can bring the more the merrier. We'd love this room to be packed for her one NorCal stop.

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
