Electric Street Art or maybe Pier Art

Some people may not consider this real authentic street art but I do so I decided it should go up on the web that way.
I think it would be amazing to include this element in a wide variety of public exhibitions.
This is the Santa Monica Pier, roller coaster and Ferris Wheel, CA, US.

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

STREET I AM TV LIVE Episode 9

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 info@streetiam.com

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

Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade is well known for its street musicians. Clare Means has been singing there since 2007.

As a singer-songwriter, she has a developed a faithful following who respect her artistry.

I first met Clare on the Promenade last year and have experienced a number of her sessions.

Clare took time to reflect on her start in song writing, singing and playing guitar.

Tony Morris: When did begin to take music seriously?

Clare Means: My interest in songwriting began in 2005. My sister gave me a guitar for my birthday and I started teaching myself guitar by looking up chord charts and then looking up the chards to some of my favorite songs on the Internet. Then I went through a breakup soon after I started learning guitar so it inspired me to write. Then I just started writing about everything I could think of… READ IT ALL IN THE SANTA MONICA MIRROR
