Mr Little Jeans

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

8:00pm

Born and raised in the woodsy, seaside town of Grimstad, Norway, Mr Little Jeans spent her childhood immersed in music, be it the sounds of her mother’s guitar or Simon & Garfunkel records. She grew up in the church choir, learned piano and guitar, amassed singing competition wins throughout the Norse countryside. Absorbing early influences ranging from Mariah Carey, PJ Harvey and Massive Attack, she sublimated and synthesized the ability to sing in a way that makes you freeze, as though time was momentarily stopped and you’re unsure whether you want to dance or ruminate.

As such, the songs on Pocketknife are deeply personal and ripe for interpretation. They’re about ambition and dreams and living with no daylight. It’s this chiaroscuro that sets it apart—capturing the feeling of the ebb and flow of existence, each song its own 24-hour saga. You might have the tools to escape, but you won’t want to.

Heartbeat City - A Tribute to the Cars

Upstairs at Vitellos

4349 Tujunga Avenue, Studio City, CA 91604

8:00pm

Named for one of the Cars biggest selling albums, Heartbeat City faithfully re-creates the look and sound of the Cars. They dress in the period-correct 80′s style of the Cars and, being accomplished musicians, their sound is amazingly close to the real thing! Seeing Heartbeat City is as close as you can come to seeing an 80′s Cars concert.

The members of Heartbeat City have come together from a few different well-known national level Tribute acts, as well as some pretty famous 80′s recording acts… On the Tribute scene, various members have worked with Hotel California – a Salute to the Eagles, Wild Child – a Tribute to the Doors, Belladonna – a Tribute to Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac, Get Back with the cast of Beatlemania (featuring members from the Broadway cast and movie), Blue Order – a Tribute to New Order, and many more.

On the recording front, members have come from 80′s recording acts like Mastedon (former Kansas members), Berlin, Survivor, and have recorded on the 80′s classic movie soundtrack St. Elmo’s Fire along with many other movie soundtracks and film & television placements… plus they have worked with dozens of other recording acts too numerous to list. This band has a solid background in the music business!

Because of the past history of Heartbeat City’s members, you can always expect to see a high quality, professional show. This band is quickly becoming a favorite in venues all across the Country. Why not see for yourself?… LET THE GOODTIMES ROLL!

Phil Rowland
Drums

Phil is the founding member of Heartbeat City and has a solid background in the music industry. He has been part of two different high profile National Level Tribute acts and also has a few Major Label recordings to his credit. Born and raised in New York, he had an active career performing and recording with some of New York State’s top bands. He signed his first Major Label recording contract at age 17. He has been signed to five different major labels, and has worked with big name record producers. He has also taken private study with some of the leading drum teachers in the industry.

In the 80′s he was part of the band Mastedon and recorded two successful albums with them: It’s a Jungle Out There, and Lofcaudio. The band included former members of the bands Kansas, Pablo Cruse, Foreigner, and other major acts. He has three Gold and one Platinum albums to his credit.
He also recorded on the soundtrack album to the 80′s movie classic St. Elmo’s Fire. He has done many one off recordings with well known musicians and appears on a number of albums and compilation albums just too numerous to list.

Phil was an endorser for the Ludwig Drum Co. for 15 years. He has also endorsed for the Paiste Cymbal Co. He is currently an endorser for the Peace Drum Co., Amedia Cymbal Co., Hotsticks Drumsticks and Prentice Practice Pads.

Mitchell Sigman
Keyboards & Vocals

Mitchell is an accomplished keyboard player well-versed in the progressive/techno style of keyboard and synth sounds. As such he was a perfect addition to Heartbeat City. His list of credits is long and varied.

For seven years he was a member of the 80′s recording act Berlin (Take My Breath Away, The Metro) and also spent a year touring with the band Survivor (Eye of the Tiger, The Search is Over).

He has a vast knowledge of synth style keyboard and sounds. He wrote a book on Keyboard programming for Backbeat Books… so you might say he “wrote the book” on programming keyboard sounds…(ouch!). Needless to say his keyboard renditions for the Cars are deadly accurate!

He also has an ongoing original project called Celebutante. This project has had numerous film and TV track placements, including “Jersey Shore”, “The Bold And The Beautiful”, “Burn Notice”, “Monk”, and “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF”. Mitchell won a BMI award in 2008 for his work on the Berlin track “Scream”, used as the theme song on the Lifetime drama “Angela’s Eyes”.

On the Tribute front, he was a “key” member (ouch again!) of the high profile Las Vegas based 80′s flashback band, The Nancy Rayguns… doing the summer slot at the Freemont Street Experience.

He is pleased to be a part of Heartbeat City, citing The Cars as one of his favorite bands… due largely to the keyboard work.

Andy Catt
Bass & Vocals
From the day he refused to step offstage at the end of a first-grade choir recital, to his “grown-up” work with dozens of Southern California bands, singer/songwriters, and recording artists, Andy Catt has shown himself to be a lifelong entertainer and a talented, versatile performer. A multi-instrumentalist, Andy is equally at home in front of the microphone as he is behind the bass guitar.

In his home town of San Diego, Andy was well-known in the music scene there, playing with numerous bands, most notably progressive rock trio American Steel, whose recordings were released internationally. He made the move to Los Angeles in the mid 90′s to pursue his interests in music, photography and film, and quickly established himself in that music scene as well.

Andy’s many credits include work with rock group Lunden Reign which toured extensively throughout the United Kingdom; progressive rock band Lobate Scarp; international singer/songwriters Gilli Moon and Marina V; The Knightsbridge Theater Company; as well as Rod Stewart tribute band Atlantic Crossing, and Linda Ronstadt tribute Different Drum, just to name a few. Andy is also a sought-after session player and has done recording work in many studios, including the famous Capitol Records and Abbey Road studios.

As a fan of The Cars in their heyday, Andy never dreamed he would someday be recreating the look and sound of Cars bassist/vocalist Benjamin Orr. As bassist/vocalist for Heartbeat City, Andy is well aware of his responsibility to honor and respect the memory of the late Orr. Andy wants everyone to know that he has dedicated his live performances to that great songwriter and performer.
