Information provided by Credo Studio.

This summer, Credo Studio in downtown San Juan Bautista is hosting the Women of Song Gourmet Series featuring female singer-songwriters. Each performance includes original, recorded material of each woman and features a pairing of wine and hors-d’oeuvres to enhance the audience experience.

The first singer-songwriter of the series is Alisa Fineman on July 13. Fineman was voted “Best Folk Musician” four years running by the Monterey Bay’s Coast Weekly. Fineman is an established singer-songwriter who has toured extensively, appearing at such festivals as California’s Strawberry Festival, The Napa Valley Festival, The Kate Wolf Memorial Festival, Austin’s South-By-Southwest, The Kerrville Folk Festival, Moab Folk Festival, The Connecticut Family Folk Festival, and Spokane’s Columbia River Festival. Fineman was joined later in her career by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kimball Hurd (co-founder of City Folk). Fineman’s multi-faceted career includes traditional and original songs from the Jewish Diaspora that marks a radical but natural departure from Fineman’s previous recordings. It has become a new direction for her musical and humanitarian sensibilities. This performance will feature songs that span the breadth of Fineman’s career. 

Recording artist Anne Whitehurst is slated to perform on August 3 and is also an established fine artist noted for her sustainable agricultural art series. She will bring a unique performance to the Credo Studio stage that combines elements of art, wine, food and song.

Whitehurst is a storyteller of many colors. Her material includes elements of country, blues, folk, corridos and Tex-Mex. Her performance will feature selections from her new EP “Castle of Hearts” produced by the legendary Joe Craven who stated: “As soon as a story is told, the trap has already been set with me wanting to know the next one.” Whitehurst will be joined by her Low Noon bandmates: guitarist extraordinaire Dan Stein, featuring Robert Manzanedo’s Cajon-based percussion driven by the bass lines of Lindsey Pugsley.

Touring recording artist Socorra closes out the series on September 14. A singer-songwriter heralding from San Jose, CA, Socorra is a drummer turned guitar player, who will bring her blues-driven indie rock sound to San Juan Bautista after her summer tour. She released her first EP, “Break,” in 2017 and has opened for acts like Blues Traveler and Fantastic Negrito. Heavily influenced by everything from Motown and Led Zeppelin to HAIM and Sheryl Crow, Socorra strives to bring soulful performances to every show. Currently, she is recording her follow-up EP. Content Magazine in 2018 stated Socorra has “A gutsy blues voice. It’s familiar but unique, and undeniable in its smoky richness.”

Credo Studio is located at 1 Polk Street San Juan Bautista.

Ticket Price is $35.00 and includes wine and hors d’oeuvres.
