A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Danny Barca has been writing songs since he got his first guitar at the age of 14.

In 2005 Danny made the decision to focus on his true passion, writing and performing all original songs.

Michael and mary
Michael and Mary is a collaborative musical venture birthed from the brilliant artistic chemistry between the two rising young artists, Michael Lott and Mary Allison. Michael coming from a classical music back ground, and Mary coming from a background of soulful folk and blues, weave together beautifully deep and poetic compositions with a unique style that blends contemporary song writing with the Sacred - prayer, sound healing, meditation, and inner self-exploration.
Salsa band PURA VIDA brings the hot latin sound of afro-carribean music to

A fusion of ritual, group intention, tribal dance, and modern beats, GaiaDance is a profoundly uplifting and unifying experience for people of all ages, races, and religions!
From Soulful vocals dipped in Gold dropped over acoustic guitar to Poetic spoken word and Rap over Hip-Hop beats to spitting truth like a minister of sound over dub, Trap or bass heavy beats Gina René is a force to be reckoned with. Recently she was in the studio with Michael Franti and Spearhead whose title track “All People” she co-wrote and features her vocals. Gina has been sharing her talent in the mainstream where her wide appeal shines through her co-writing and recording with her brothers, Gabriel and Chris Rene, including the 2012 hit song “Young Homie” as well as "MeanGurl" from Paramount film’s 2004 "Meangirls” starring Lindsey Lohan, and "U Must Be”, co-written by Artstrong Clarion, which was featured in the 2006 film "Step Up". In 2011 Gina made it into the top 50 on The XFactor USA after trekking her reluctant younger brother Chris onto the show who left taking 3rd place. Gina's vocals were born out of the collaboration with her brother Gabriel and High School friends Mei-Lwun Yee and Andy Caldwell to activate the electronic music phenomenon Soulstice (Om Records), while her original music blends R&B/Soul, Hip-Hop, Pop to Rock to sounds inspired by the Effect-heavy dub roots of reggae and the mystique and power of music from around the world.
