Wine & Song: Jaime Michaels and Spork & Foon
The Roots Music Report summed up Jaime Michaels best — “Much like the folkier side of Paul Simon, who seems a clear mentor, Michaels’ lyrical skills allow him to be reflective and wry in his crafty word-play…The tunes throughout are always clever, mostly upbeat, but never sappy—wine sipping rather than beer drinking music.” Spork & Foon features five highly respected members of the LA songwriting community – singer Aireene Espiritu brings her folk and blues to the project, guitarist Ed Tree fuels his Southern soul with propulsive grooves, keyboardist Marty Axelrod takes things in a humorous direction, bassist Mark Goldberg contributes bluesy originals, and percussionist Debra Dobkin adds her unique brand of R&B funk. Passing lead vocals around the bandstand and giving all they have to each other’s material, Spork & Foon exudes the love and admiration each member holds for the others. Their performance will have you dancing in your seat.
