KIMBERLY HAYNES with Vito Gregoli – Kindled by an awareness of divine guidance and conscious connection with spirit, singer/songwriter KIMBERLY HAYNES brings forth an uplifting invitation to discover a sacred space deep within the heart. The spectrum of her eclectic and enlightening songs evokes both the tenderness of a mother’s touch and the ancient feminine power of a tribal priestess singing her truth. Her debut album “Awaken Me” was nominated for Best Vocal Album and Album of the Year in OneWorldMusic awards and was recently reviewed in LAYoga Magazine. She is accompanied by her co-producer and co-conspirator David Vito Gregoli.

ALFRED JOHNSON is a highly regarded singer/songwriter & funky piano player and is considered by some one of this century’s most animated & original songwriters. Alfred co-wrote 3 songs with RICKIE LEE JONES on her Platinum Grammy Award winning premiere album containing the hit single ‘Chuck E’s in Love’. His energetic style of playing the keys brings a wonderful compliment to his music. Alfred’s songs have been covered by Diane Reeves & Ernie Watts. Known for his clever song crafting, Alfred’s lyric-driven tunes will captivate you. His music encompasses Funk, New Orleans, Pop, Rock ‘n’ Soul, Gospel, “Rhythm & Bluegrass,” and more. Alfred has written over 900 tunes, and at least 70 of them are published.

THE PAINKILLERS semi-acoustic show – Playing a collection of songwriter Steven Moos’ soulful, bluesy tunes & some choice covers, each Painkillers’ performance is a unique and memorable musical experience. What’s special about this band is the organic energy, great vocal harmonies, and interplay between founding members Steve Moos and lead guitarist Don Kirkpatrick. Joining them on background vocals, Carol McArthur & Lauri Reimer, and Julia “The Duchess” Thornton on percussion.

ROB BONFIGLIO is a guitarist, songwriter, producer, and musical director for the multi-platinum pop group Wilson Phillips. He produced their most recent album, Dedicated. In addition to session work and touring, Rob is a solo indie pop rock singer/songwriter with a soulful bend reflecting his Philly roots; he has 5 albums to date: Freeway (2014), Mea Culpa (2013), Bring on the Happy (2009), Shine (under the name The Skies of America) (2006), and his fifth, “TROUBLE AGAIN”, (2018). Rob was guitarist and co-founder of the former RCA power pop band Wanderlust, and frequently lends his sideman talents to several L.A. based artists. He’s currently in Brian Wilson’s touring band.

The First Post of The #Summer (In #Nashville…summer starts Memorial Day!)

#singersongwriter news from #BethSassMusic 🙂

I am pulling together material from three sources for my next album!

First of all, it will include two digital singles recorded and written with Jerry Kimbrough that have already been released: HUNTINGTON AVENUE and MY FAVORITE TARGET.  It will also include two acoustic tracks I recorded with Bruce Dees: HANDS ON THE WHEEL (two versions: one with acoustic piano and one with acoustic guitar) and HARDEST PART OF TOWN.  Finally, it will also  include new several new songs written and recorded with Walter Egan over the past year. Here’s a sneak peak of  MASTER OF THE YEARS.

Additionally, I  hope everyone has also been enjoying my Archival Soundcloud Page, where many early and unreleased recordings are “seeing the light of day”, as Bruce Dees likes to say.


“Like your mother and her mother you started out before us

With peril and gravel, sweetness and silence on the way, on the way.

Through amber autumns and grave winters, spingbolts of cobalt and generous July’s along the way, on the way.

Still you walked , walk you still

Always have, always will”.

Lifespans: Age 4, Age 81, and a Song: Teaching Thought 1/20/2014

On thursday mornings, I teach voice/piano to a 4 year old and an 84 year yr old .

-4 year old is in the moment and takes learning casually…-81 year old feels passionately that he has to fit in as much learning into every day as he can.

-4 year old can’t be interested in any home practice time at all. Learns it all on the spot and retains it. The 81 year old practices carefully and dutifully  in order to meet his own standards.

Thinking about lifespans makes me think about my father, who passed away at 74. Here’s a song about how it affected me.




Disney’s Vincent @ “From Song To Sync” Panel, #Nashville Film Festival

The 2013 Nashville Film Festival sponsored a panel of music supervisors and executives from Nashville, Los Angeles, and New York yesterday here. Especially notable for his wisdom and insight was Steve Vincent, Disney Channel VP Music & Soundtracks. As for the quest to place the best fit music to picture, he believes a song ” finds its right place….”.  And it’s nice to hear his perspective on the tv/flim industry’s side of the search for songs: “There’s plenty of good music out there. The companies HAVE to find it”.
