Fabulous interviews with fascinating musicians, artists, authors and other super interesting folks!
Lovisa Stahl Interview-12/3/13

I first met Lovisa Stahl at Path Cafe, NYC, where I was blown away by her amazing voice and solid guitar chops. I did a Skype interview with Lovisa, who is from Sweeden and it was an absolute pleasure!

Her music is a mix of blues, country, soul, folk and bossanova.
In the world, and all it contains, is where all her songs will be found…

Her new album, #2 is an eclectic mix of Fabulousness! Pick it up at iTunes, Band Camp, etc. and check out her new video:

The first time I saw Lindsay Dragan perform was behind a drum kit with The Sky Captains of Industry and I knew right away that she was a great drummer and singer. I had no idea how amazing she is as a singer/songwriter and perfomer until I saw her do a solo acoustic set.This set is truly Fabulous and will certainly make the cut for "The Best of The Path Cafe" show on Friggin Fabulous Radio!
