Lisa Haagen grew up in a very musical family & gravitated early on towards the drum set. It wasn’t until entering her college years that she started with the guitar while she fell in love with the art of lyricism.
Lisa Haagen, (pronounced Hay-gan) has a new CD out called With Honey
Seafoam Green is the song she is singing in this video from Santa Monica CA, US
In our first segment of episode 9 Street I Am TV LIVE Calvin Gold was out and agreed to an interview and performed 3 songs. When we got there he was just finishing a song from his up coming album as yet untitled.
You can hear the whole song “Superman”
After a bit of conversation and he reminds me his name is Calvin and not Elliot (I obviously have Elliot Gould on the brain) he performs “Stayin On the Line” another original composition.
He sends us on our way with a cover tune, “No Diggity”
You can reach Calvin Gold on Twitter @theCalvingold. Calvin Gold will be out and about in Los Angeles while he is recording here so give him a shout out on Twitter and find out where he will be next.
Our second performer in the live broadcast turned out to be a street preacher without portfolio. In other words no contact info was in view during the shooting. I would have asked him but I didn’t want to interrupt so if you know and you want us to tell people sind us a message on twitter or firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the exciting and also frustrating things about showing up with your camera and doing a live broadcast is you never know what will happen. Well sometimes nothing happens. So because of the nothing factor we went to lunch and when we came back we shot a live segment after dark of Lisa Haagen who has just released he hew CD With Honey. This is the Title song

Alysha was performing in a night club in Barcelona when Joan caught her performance and suggested doing a video. They decided to do a song from her new CD “Alysha Brilla In My Head” which us her second CD so far
Alysha says of the video “I went to Spain and came back with this awesome music video for my song, “Nobody”. Check out the sights and sounds of Spain through my eyes and remember that you can pick up my album on Itunes!. The song has a distinctive African motif running through it with some of the song sung in Swahili and shows a simple and alluring songwriting style.

Daniel Taylor’s insight: Jonny Walker pushes buttons in Liverpool
Where do you go when you graduate from the University of Rhode Island with a BA; major in English Lit; and you want to enjoy a profitable adventure? Well if you are Andrew Potter you learn to juggle fire. Then you move to the city of San Francisco, CA, US, create the High Street Circus, work out some heart stopping routines with your college buddy, take up residence in a beer vat at the old Hamm’s (The Beer Refreshing) factory, get yourself on stage busking then travel the world.
Since most people these days or any other days, would not pursue that kind of road to high street, which interestingly enough is the name of Andrew Potter’s new stage production “The Road To High Street”, it makes a person want to ask; Who is Andrew Potter? And what kind of person would do that?
In this video interview recorded after one of his scheduled appearances at the Fringe Festival in Hollywood, we decided to seek the answers to questions not revealed in the theater production.Iru Streetiam
Now in the final stages of development, “The Road to High Street” is being fully realized as Andrew Potter takes the show across the nation. If you would like to make your participation a part of the final production, then enjoy a unique audience experience at a theater near you.
