“Makes a mesmerizing impression” is how Barnes & Noble describes Dulcie Taylor’s music. MesaBluemoon Recordings has released 6 CDs and 2 EPs of Dulcie’s original material, all to great critical response and extensive airplay. She has performed at venues as diverse as The Kennedy Center (DC), the Bluebird (Nashville), and Mainstage at the Kerrville Folk Festival (TX). Her music has over 3 million views at her YouTube Channel and has reached No. 1 at Amazon for Top-Rated Americana. She is very pleased to be performing for the PAC. “Taylor is a poet, a romantic.” — The Washington Post
Santa Barbara-based singer-songwriter Hilary Watson, also known as vocalist and guitarist in the duo Hilary and Kate, has been grabbing attention with her recent solo debut. Years of touring, writing and performing all culminated in the powerhouse singers’ latest venture. Blending soul, blues and a little bit of country western, you’ll feel the experience and conviction of an artist who has created a sound all her own with subtle nods to the greats who influenced her. This nuanced and powerful Aretha Franklin-meets-Patsy Cline artist is not to be missed. “Hilary Watson has the kind of timeless vocals that fits most any time period or genre. Stepping away from her normal vocal duo in this solo effort, Watson offers up a bluesy roots sound that comes with a bit of a wry twist, lyrically. ” — Travis Erwin (LA On Lock Blogger)
