Soul Graffiti Newsletter
Justin Ancheta Band recently had the honor of joining Drea M at the Lost Church SF, a true gem and sanctuary of a live and acoustic music. In a live music scene that holds a high bar of excellence and faces many challenges in the realm of SF’s increasing electronic scene , and the personal and professional gentrification & socioeconomic imbalance (with the influx of the tech industry there).
Bret, the curator and owner, has shared with us his vision and intention of helping SG open up a similar door to the East Bay Area. Stay tuned for more exciting news on this front!

Update on what is being created at Soul Graffiti Studios!
Monday is dedicated at SG to workshopping some of the newest material, rehearsing for upcoming shows and studio album recording for Justin Ancheta, Honey of the Heart and more.
Our paint job & video production studio is almost complete!! After much discussion about color, testing of swatches and boldness vs subtlety, AND we went with BOLD, and painted our beloved studio walls a deep slate grey and a deep orangy- red. The lights were assembled last week, and are ready to be placed, along with cameras and mics.
We have been busy making use of the depth and rich fertile ground that Winter has left us with. We are gearing up to ride the wave of Spring’s driven and inspired movement forward! Here are a few of the plans below:
Here is what Honey of the Heart has been up to!:
Be sure to catch them at their multi CD release show in Grass Valley Center for the Arts, May 13th 2016, with Cello Joe opening the evening. They will be releasing: Live in Nevada City & Strings! In Oakland albums.
HOTH is also in the midst of planning a Europe trip this June/July! Please let us know if you have any contacts or ideas for us on our adventure!
