RAMON & JESSICA Chasing the Moon PODCAST PREMIER http://myspace.com/ramonandjessica "Ramon and Jessica is the alter-ego duo of songwriters Jesse Olsen and Dina Maccabee. The R&J collaboration has continued to evolve since its viola-and-casio-keyboard driven inception in 2003, but at the center of the RJ sound remain two constants: intertwining vocal harmonies and unmistakably quirky tunes." DINA MACCABEE BAND http://dinamaccabee.bandcamp.com http://myspace.com/dinamaccabeeband JESSE OLSEN (ALBUM RELEASE) Performing music from his new album "Ojito" on guitar, percussion, toy instruments and electronics. Songs and soundscapes inspired by the high desert of New Mexico. http://deconstructmyhouse.org
HELENE RENAUT Raised on the green and rocky coast of Brittany, France, Hélène Renaut now claims another coast, that of San Francisco, home. Live and on records, Hélène's music oscillates between gentle folk, British-influenced pop, and compositions that come closer to a song-poem. Listen and you will be met by a unique harmonic flair, poetic lyrics, and melodies that have been compared to "a paintbrush on figure skates" for their beautiful shapes - all delivered in an accomplished, yet heartrending French accented voice. http://helenerenaut.com
