ERIC SCHWARTZ AND GABRIELLE LOUISE IN CONCERT AT THE COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE ON THURSDAY, JUNE 30th

June, 2016 (Altadena, CA): On June 30th Gabrielle Louise and Eric Schwartz will perform a collaborative double bill concert at The Coffee Gallery Backstage, a coffeehouse showroom dedicated to presenting a variety of acoustic music in a warm atmosphere. Located in Altadena, this cozy venue features, almost every night, live , professional musical entertainment of national and international quality. Tickets are $15 and reservations can be made in advance by calling (626) 798-6236 between 10 A. M. and 10 P.M. The concert begins at 8:00 pm.

Award-winning Singer/Songwriter, Performer, Satirist Multiinstrumentalist and Entertainer Eric Schwartz (aka Eric “Red” Schwartz) tours the US and Europe bringing his music to every audience he can find. He’s been playing music and comedy venues nationally for fifteen years and he has composed for and performed in various Satiristas shows. His songs have been sung by Ronny Cox, Holly Near and Van Dyke Parks. Schwartz is possibly the only artist in the history of the world to get raves from Gloria Steinem and Hustler Magazine. Eric’s songs go from the political to the profane, sometimes both (see the International Songwriting Competition’s best comedy song of the year, “Clinton Got A Blowjob”.) Eric’s latest CD release The Aristocrat, which Paul Zollo (Songwriters on Songwriting) calls “A Comic Treasure” and The U.K.’s Rock’n’Reel magazine calls “beautifully produced and perfectly executed,” contains “There’s A Picture...”, currently in rotation on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show. Schwartz has also garnered radio play on stations as diverse as Howard Stern’s 100, Raw Dog Radio, The Ed Schultz Show and All Things Considered. Schwartz’ latest release is “The Better Man”, which Brian Keathley of KALX Berkeley calls “by far his best work yet. A great collection of tunes with humor, and social commentary – some of which is damn profound. Be listening for it this week and beyond on my radio shows!”

Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two vagabond musicians, Gabrielle inherited the genetic predisposition to wanderlust and song. She is an honest, engaging performer who leaves you with the feeling that hope and heartache are two sides of the same coin. Gabrielle Louise's music is anchored deeply in folk, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. Her sound has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited delivery of fellow genre- hopping artist Eva Cassidy. She is at one moment folkie and ethereal, the next moment a smoky jazz chanteuse. A gifted story-teller and narrator, Gabrielle’s songs immerse you in her world in a cinematic fashion. Music critic David McGee (writer for Rolling Stone and Deep Roots Magazine) says of her music: “Articulate and gifted...Louise dives deep into her songs, exploring them in a warm, sturdy voice reminiscent at times of Joni Mitchell, especially in the falsetto flights and lower register swoops. She executes a captivating balance of heartache and resolve.”
