Spotlife: Music in the Bay

Spotlife: Music in the Bay

Allen and I decided it would be fun to start filming local artists and musicians at Bay Area locations. We decided to create "SpotLife" which gives a short sample of some of the amazing performances happening around us all of the time!

Some of the artists include Grammy award winning artist Kanetic Source (formerly of Ozomatli), and So Timeless.

Episode 1: So Timeless

We had the opportunity to film So Timeless as they performed in San Jose at Rosie McCann's Irish Pub & Restaurant at Santana Row. The band performs old school and current hip-hop and R&B every Monday night from 9p-12a.

Episode 2: Kanetic Source

Anthony Stout, AKA "Kanetic Source" releases his album and performs in tribute to his son Noah Stout. 

Kanetic Source won a Grammy award while performing with the Latin group Ozomatli. in 2003, Ozomatli released a 6 song EP through Concord Records featuring the rap vocals of Kanetic Source on "Cumbia De Los Muertos" and a collaboration with The Kumbia Kings on "Mi Gente.

The Pagoda Lounge in the Fairmont Hotel has seen artists such as Bilal, Robert Glasper, Talib Kweli, and others.
