In our Spring 2020 edition, Nikki O’Neill authored an article, “Ladies of the Canyon: The Movers & Shakers of SoCal’s Vibrant Americana Scene,” where she introduces our readers to the Americana scenes of Los Angeles and its surrounding areas.
“What’s noteworthy is the significant number of women spearheading this community
of creative talent: artists; band leaders who double as organizers of showcases;
publicists; talent bookers; filmmakers and poster artists, all dedicating their time and money to lighting the spark, setting things in motion, and spreading awareness.”
