The first installment of QueenEarth & Friends kicks off on January 21, 2012 from 8-10pm. This is a new monthly dinner party that will feature collaborations between myself and some of my favorite poets, musicians, emcees and artist friends in the community. The first show features me and Irv and Alex Madden (bass, drums). There is a $5 cover and it is guaranteed to be a new Saturday hot spot in this lovely city. As always, I’m still rocking Fridays at Terra Cafe from 12-2pm.
The next Bohemian Coffeehouse Open Mic, hosted by yours truly, is on January 25th and Hollywood Infinite is featuring. She is a spoken word rhyming goddess. You’ll love it. If you came last time, you already know we fill the room with positive energy and provide an inclusive environment for everyone, listeners and performers. $2 gets you in at 1821 N Charles St for the newest open mic experience. Did I mention, it’s BYOB? Anna Zoe (http://www.facebook.com/annazoemusic) is on tour and I’m playing with her at Bohemian on Friday the 20th at 7pm. The show is FREE!!
Did you know? I give guitar lessons. While I consider my first gift to be as a singer/songwriter, I would not be QueenEarth without the help of my guitar. More than serving as a tool to supplement my voice and lyrics, I believe the guitar has taught me so much about music and it has given me the ability to express myself when I have no words. I’ve taught my students online and â€œon-the-ground.â€ My skill set ranges from rhythm guitar and creativity to songwriting and chord progressions. My students have given me positive feedback.
â€œI have been a college professor at a major university in Maryland for about 10 years and I have also developed new faculty members so I am more than qualified to recognize master teaching in the context of any genre and QueenEarth is the real deal. I am one of her students and was amazed at how quickly I progressed in learning the guitar, although I have a long way to go. Don’t settle for in-between……learn from the Queen.â€ – Bridal Pearson, Ph.D
