Longtime Southern California singer-songwriter Rick Shea got his early musical education in the bars and honky-tonks of San Bernardino where he grew up. With ten critically acclaimed albums, he’s performed all over Southern California, the West Coast, the US and in Europe, and built a solid career for himself as a solo artist, singer, guitarist and songwriter.
Shaped by the similarly grey and rainy skies of England and the Pacific Northwest, acoustic duo Petty Chavez — made up of songwriters Simon Petty and Celia Chavez — formed when their musical paths converged in sunny southern California. After meeting onstage at a David Bowie tribute show in 2013, they have combined their disparate experiences ever since in harmony, life and song.
