The Octopus Literary Salon
2101 Webster St @ 22nd, Oakland, California 94612
Come join us at The Octopus Literary Salon on Friday, August 24th for a fun, intimate, night of great music and great stories!
The Austrian singer, pianist and songwriter Clara Blume recently moved from her hometown of Vienna to the Bay Area, where she will pursue her musical career in the U.S.
For the past fifteen years, Clara has been writing her own songs and performing with renowned musicians from all over the world to international recognition. Her songwriting in English and Spanish culminated in her critically-acclaimed and award-nominated debut album, Here Comes Everything. While promoting her music, Clara appeared several times on national television and was invited to tour through Europe and the U.S. Blume's recent compositions masterfully unite Spanish chanson and traditional songwriting.
Her voice awakens memories of the haunting expression of one Lhasa de Sela, while her musical arrangements evoke the cinematic scope of Rodrigo Amarante. Clara will perform songs from her soon-to-be released second record, accompanied by Phill Geissler on the classical guitar.
— ZACH HING:
Better known as the co-frontman of the Oakland-based funk band Trace Repeat, Zach Hing is showing another side on August 24th as a folky, soul-infused songwriter! This marks the first show in almost 3 years Zach will be performing as his own entity, so be sure to come out to hear some new stuff for the first time! It's going to be a bit… different.
Hope to see you all there!
