Gina BreedloveFolksoul is what Gina Breedlove calls her signature sound. Think of classic rhythm and blues spiced with a big dash of folk and gospel. Gina began her career at age 15 singing backup for Phyllis Hyman, toured as a featured vocalist with Harry Belafonte, and has since worked with such artists as Omar, Ani DiFranco, Sekou Sundiata, Craig Harris, Toshi Reagon, and Lizz Wright. She also originated the role of Sarabi in The Lion King on Broadway. The website Blues and Soul called her album Open Heart “a celebration of womanhood” and “a courageous stand.” Gina is a creative force, tender and vulnerable, dynamic and full of power.

San Francisco native Vicki Randle has worked with such diverse artists as Aretha Franklin and Kenny Loggins, Celine Dion and Dr. John, Mickey Hart and Lionel Ritchie. She was the percussionist and lead singer for the acclaimed Tonight Show Band led by Kevin Eubanks for more than 14 years.

Oakland’s Julie Wolf is a composer, teacher, and master of the accordion who has worked with Maceo Parker, Ani DiFranco, the Indigo Girls, Bruce Cockburn, Cris Williamson, and Barbara Higbie, as well as composing music for films and serving as music director for the Berkeley Rep’s 2010 world premiere of Girlfriend.

Berkeley’s Shelley Doty is a talented singer and a powerhouse on electric and acoustic guitar. Guitar Player Magazine has praised the “energy, funk, and surprise” of her guitar playing as well as her “smoky, soulful voice.”

Percussionist Michaelle Goerlitz moved to San Francisco in 1980, co-founded two renowned Bay Area bands, the Blazing Redheads and Wild Mango, and has played, recorded, and toured with such artists as Wayne Wallace, Tret Fure, Blame Sally, Holly Near, and Jennifer Berezan.
