Tune in to Californiosos... let’s find out together!
Californiosos is a new group featuring Michael Vest and Farmer Dave Scher. With 14 generations of Golden State living under their collective belts, Michael and Farmer Dave are naturals at bringing the cosmic / poetic West Coast folk-jazz-psych sound, lovingly fusing the influences of artists like The Doors, Love, Ariel Pink, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, and Devendra Banhart with the spiritual jazz of Pharaoh Saunders, Sun Ra, John Coltrane, and Kamasi Washington... breaking through to new cosmologies and multi-dimensional fields of LOVE.
(Michael Vest is a poet, painter, thinker, co-captain of the band Space Babies, and the driving force behind Earthstar Creation Center, a magical recording studio in Venice Beach, . )
(Farmer Dave Scher is a musician, poet, sound healer, naturalist, and activist. He has toured and recorded with such artists as Animal Collective, Beachwood Sparks, Cass McCombs, Elvis Costello, Farmer Dave and the Wizards of the West, Jenny Lewis, Kurt Vile, Rhythms of Vision, and many others.)
