Folk/rock musicians Andy Hill and Renee Safier to perform July 9 in a free concert and video recording in the ATLAS Black Box
ATLAS is presenting a very special live concert by award-winning folk/rock musicians Andy Hill and Renée Safier at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 9, in the ATLAS Black Box Studio.
Since meeting in Colorado more than 20 years ago, Hill and Safier have carved out a unique niche for themselves in the Los Angeles area and beyond. As a songwriter, Hill is a student of the world’s folk and rock giants – Van Morrison, The Band, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. Safier's prodigious blues and jazz vocals won the acoustic blues competition at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2005.
Hill and Safier have taken their distinctive sound and multi-instrumental skills to world venues large and small – while winning numerous awards along the way. (More information is available at their Web site here.)
The concert will be recorded using new equipment recently purchased by ATLAS, including high-definition cameras with live switching and audio that will be mixed and captured through state-of-the-art recording equipment.
Musicians appearing with Hill and Safier at this special event include Bruce Springsteen-sideman Marty Rifkin on pedal steel and electric guitar, eTown’s bassist Chris Engleman and Denver’s Mike Marlier on drums.

This performance represents the first of what is hoped to become a series of such events at ATLAS, offering quality live entertainment to the local community – and beyond.
