Eugenie Jones is described as a performer that makes audiences feel jazz. Vocally described as possessing, “A voice that covers words like pieces of silk covering precious stones,” Jones is an emotive, engaging song stylist that entertains, dazzles and decisively wins over audiences. (Charles Mudede)

Reminiscent in style and sophistication of iconic vocalists of the past, Jones sings and scats her way vivaciously through mainstream jazz, but also draws listeners inside contemporary storylines, sharing original tunes that have earned her recognition as a cleverly gifted lyricist.

Born and raised in West Virginia to parents who loved gospel, jazz and soul, with older siblings who were into the Motown sound, and having a mother who sang lead in the church choir, exposed Jones to a variety of musical foundations before making her professional debut as a singer/songwriter in Seattle, WA.

With an MBA and a career in marketing, however, it wasn’t until she lost her mother to cancer that she
felt drawn into the world of music. “I can only describe my beginnings in jazz as a time of missing my mom,
missing hearing her voice singing around the house and wondering within myself if I could do that – if I
could sing and carry on that part of her?” With her original “A Good Day” downloaded on All About Jazz
more than 9,000 times, critics and fans have answered Jones query with a resounding, YES!

As a national recording artist, Jones has self-produced two primarily original vocal jazz projects earning
her ranking on Jazz Week Review Top-50 , #1 spots on CMJ charts, favorable reviews from Down Beat,
Jazziz, All About Jazz, and numerous other industry mediums.

“In that overcrowded arena known as “female jazz singers”, Seattle-based Eugenie Jones manages to
stand apart from the crowd. Ms. Jones has filled both of her outstanding albums with her own engaging
compositions. This fact alone differentiates her as she is one of the very few African-American women
singer-songwriters in jazz today. And finally, the lady can sing as well as she can write. She is an intelligent,
thoughtful composer in the tradition of Abbey Lincoln and Nina Simone. Fans of true jazz singing, it’s
time for you to sit up and take notice.” (C. Davenport/Curt’s Jazz).

The Anacortes Music Project Presents

Pearl Tottenham
Lizzie Weber
The Enthusiasts

Pearl Tottenham’s voice is one we’ve been following for a few years now. Some classic teen themes of heartache, but how she frames the subject is where her style shines. Sort of our own Joni Mitchell you could say. Tottenham’s soul singing shines on her new album of originals - Weather Patterns. As she plays electric guitar, Pearl is generally backed by her Dad, Brian Tottenham (Enduro) on bass, and some times Braydn Kruger(Lonely Forest) as in the “Weather Patterns” recordings.

Originally from Saint Louis, MO, Lizzie Weber says of her heritage - “growing up in St. Louis allowed me to develop strong values and a strong sense of self, a kind of self-awareness that sort of catapulted me into writing very personal and emotionally charged music.” Lizzie performed at last year’s Shipwreck Friendship Trail in the shade of Causland Park deciduous trees. She’s quietly working on her sophomoric record after releasing the single called “Love Again” produced by Grammy-award winner Sheldon Gomberg in LA.

The Enthusiasts cartwheeled into town with their families several years ago now from the land of oranges and brought with them a sort of sunshine. When they start playing they put their whole beings into it, when you hear them sing together - this sister and brother combo - always gets the blood pumping. Sommer and Andrew, as well as of The Mosstones, volunteer with Anacortes Music Project.

The Anacortes Music Project presents:
Well Water
Ever Ending Kicks
Sky All Around
Karl Blau

Look Well Water up on the internet and you don’t find a whole lot. You get the feeling it’s not Tyler Jones’s bag to put himself out there. But, when he and partner Katie Jennings sing through the almost gregorian mantras that are Well Water songs - the listener feels a soothing and a caring that feels rare and special.

Paul Adam Benson came to Anacortes getting up on 10 years ago to live at the Department of Safety. Even then (as Motorbikes) his style was typically minimalist. The boiling down continues and now as Ever Ending Kicks, Benson can be heard even putting the guitar down and counting the silence. Subtleties like the awkward comedy of in between moments. His beautiful elongated tones and voice, his quiet, samba-esque strumming. Paul’s lyrics march past and question our inner thoughts.

Celebrating the anniversary of their self-titled 2nd album Sky All Around are songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Ben Boatright and Jeff Vogel along with guitarist Zack Wolcott and drummer Larry Rogers. Sky All Around is a band with dynamics, they have a big sound with harmonies crossing over into some bluegrass territories, thoughtful instrumental intros and generally incorporate orchestrations with their mandolin, guitar, bass and drums and 4 voices.

Karl Blau playing in Anacortes in some ways is just another day in Anacortes. He travels, too, currently in between European tours - his label is in London, England. Blau is harboring some new tunes with his newly found country/soul vocal expression but woven into his freaky, far-out rock and roll style. Anti-war songs, check. Pro-community songs, check. Love songs intact. Karl also volunteers for Anacortes Music Project.
