Friends and Family!
Welcome to the new year =D
I know I’m a bit late to the party but, as they say, “better late than never.”
I hope you all had a safe New Year’s celebration and are getting along well in this glorious 2017 weather!
Here’s to a year of great music.

FEBRUARY 19TH: LIA BOOTH WITH BRADLEY YOUNG AND BENJAMIN MAY @ THE HOME OF CALJAS’ DALE AND SUE BOATMAN

I am honored to have been asked to be a part of the CALJAS house concert series and this Sunday you will see why. The setting is intimate, the seats are limited, and the vibe is inspiring. Please join us for an evening of jazz in the home of Dale and Sue Boatman of the California Jazz Arts Society. This organization is one of the many reasons why I do what I do today, and I am so grateful. Please join us.

Friends and Family!
As y0u may know from my previous newsletters I recorded a whopping 13 tunes with some great friends of mine a few months ago. I am happy to announce that we have finally launched the first iteration of the project, A Beautiful Friendship EP! The EP is available for purchase¬†on cdbaby.com/liabooth for $5! You can also catch me at any upcoming gig and purchase a hard copy in person if that better suits your fancy ūüôā

This EP consists of 4 tunes from the original session and 2 ballads I have since recorded in collaboration with Tony Guerrero. Enjoy!!

August Update

“When I sing a tune, the lyrics are important to me. Most of the standard lyrics I know well. And as soon as I hear an arrangement, I get ideas, kind of like blowing a horn. I guess I never sing a tune the same way twice.” — Sarah Vaughan

The end of summer is near! And, my, what a summer it has been!

I have had the absolute pleasure of being a part of a few adventures this past month or so, and I am so excited to share a bit about them with y’all.
1. Laguna Festival of the Arts/Pageant of the Masters
2. Recording Session with Tony Guerrero and friends!
3. Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition

1. Laguna Festival of the Arts Rising Star Series

As many of you know, I was invited to be a part of the Rising Star series of the Laguna Festival of the Arts this past July! I was informed that I would be singing along side 3 other vocalists, and I was floored to find out who they would be!  Here are some photos from that show, shot by photographer, Jack Cohen.   =D

2. Recording Session at Master Recording Studios with Tony Guerrero and Friends!

We went in with the goal of¬†recording three tunes which would serve as my submission to the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and ended up with 13! ¬†This means that there will an album available for purchase very soon! ¬†I will keep you all updated on that. =D ¬†At my side, or rather, in my headphones, were¬†Bradley Young, Jon Stuart, and Benjamin May. ¬†Having musical magicians with me in a situation where we can’t actually look at each other and are making up arrangements on the spot is an ADVENTURE!¬†¬†Here is a list of the tunes we recorded and some photos from the session: Lullaby of Birdland, Black Coffee, Beautiful Friendship, My One and Only Love, One Note Samba, Smile, All of Me, Fever, Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me, Why Don’t You Do Right, Close Your Eyes, My Romance, This Can’t Be Love.
We will be doing some fundraising in order to get the record fully realized (fine tuned and mastered) but in the mean time we will be releasing an EP with 6 tunes from the project on it within the next month or so to tide you over. They will be available to purchase in CD form but you will also have the option to download the tunes straight to your device…as soon as we get all of that figured out =D. Stay Tuned!
Here are some goofy photos and maybe one or two serious ones.

If you are on Facebook than you already know that I have done this crazy thing! I have entered the “SASSY Awards” competition! This year marks the 5th annual Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition held online for the first several rounds. Contestants are asked to upload 3 recorded tunes, one of which must have been recorded by Sarah Vaughan at one point in her career. A video can also be provided for viewing as part of the competition but is not necessary.

As mentioned in section #2, I spent the day in the studio with the guys recording tunes to upload to the competition website: https://indabamusic.com/opportunities/5th-annual-sarah-vaughan-international-jazz-vocal-competition/my-submissions.

Please visit the website and VOTE for ALL FOUR TUNES **three are mp3 tracks and one is a video** because this is how I will move on to the next round!

April Update

This month is an exciting one for me. As some of you may know, I am currently singing in Cal State Long Beach’s advanced vocal jazz ensemble Pacific Standard Time under the direction of Christine Guter. You may also know that I began my jazzy journey in the group Singcopation from Mt. SAC. My experience in vocal jazz has taken me places I never would have dreamed and has led me to my amazing and ever-growing family of incredible jazz musicians with whom I get to make magic with on many band stands.
A huge part of this journey has been participating in the Next Generation Jazz Festival Competition as part of Singcopation. This lead to the invitation to perform at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 2012. It was such an inspiring and unforgettable experience and I am so excited to share that I will be returning to the competition with Pacific Standard Time! Our performance is Sunday so keep us in your hearts as we endeavor to share our love for vocal jazz with hundreds of music students and faculty from all over the country!

April showers bring may flowers…or at least good music!¬†
