      Josephine Foster, Meg Baird, Victor Herrero live at Hemlock Tavern 8/1/13, 8:30pm, $10 adv., $12 door JOSEPHINE FOSTER is a modern American folk singer-songwriter and musician from Colorado. As an adolescent she worked as a funeral and wedding singer, and aspired to become an opera singer. Several years later she abandoned the idea and began to record demos of her songs, resulting in the early recordings There are Eyes Above (2000), an album of ukulele accompanied songs strongly influenced by Tin Pan Alley, and a short album of children's songs, Little Life (2001). For several years she worked as a singing teacher in Chicago, recording and performing with a variety of musical acts on the side including Born Heller, a duo with free jazz-bassist Jason Ajemian, and The Childrens Hour a pop band formed with songwriter Andrew Bar. In 2004 joined by her occasional backing band The Supposed (Brian Goodman on guitar and Rusty Peterson on drums) Josephine released an album of psychedelic rock called 'All the Leaves Are Gone' which has drawn comparison to Patti Smith and Jefferson Airplane. The songs on her first solo studio album 'Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You' (2005) evoke early American folk and blues forms of the early 20th century. 'A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' released in 2006, features unorthodox interpretations of 19th century German art-songs. Her third solo album 'This Coming Gladness' was released in 2008. 'Graphic as a Star' was released in 2010 and Josephine's latest album, the mesmerising 'Blood Rushing' was released in September 2012. MEG BAIRD (Espers) VICTOR HERRERO: Introduced to music in his childhood while living in the famous monastery Franco erected in a mountain valley west of Madrid (El Valle de los Caídos), Victor Herrero learned to sing Gregorian and Mozarabic chant under the guidance of Benedictine monks. Joining the abbey's well-respected boys' choir he performed in around Europe and was featured in the soundtrack and as an extra in the Belgian cult film 'Farinelli' (Gérard Corbiau, 1994) Around this time he began studying the classical guitar. As a teenager back in his hometown Toledo he formed a psych-rock outfit called 'Cicely', which grew into a popular Madrid-based band. The group lasted 8 years. Following this break-up Victor recorded and released an album of his solo piano compositions ("Connotaciones para Piano") under his old stage name 'Victor Cicely', which was put out by the Spanish label SGAE in 2006. Shortly after this period, Victor began collaboration with North American artist Josephine Foster, accompanying her frequently in concert as well as in the recording studio, most recently playing lead guitar on her new album "This Coming Gladness" (Bo'Weavil Recordings, 2008). On this very same UK label he is set to release his own new solo album due out in early 2009. A collection of his instrumental songs written for and interpreted upon the Spanish guitar, the music embodies different styles which have all formed a part of his experienceclassical, folkloric and contemporary threads all united under the strong influence of traditional musica Andaluz.
