Updated: Apr 25, 2021
This Sunday’s show will feature songwriter/composer/producer, John Pratt, Laguna Beach glass artist, Gavin Heath, and entertainer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Kiki Ebsen, daughter of the late Buddy Ebsen.
We’ll also get to discuss the “Lost Video Footage” of the 2015 Blue Water Music Festival and present a few of this week’s World’s best CV-19 inspired music videos.
The AGHH is LBCAC’s way of providing area residents with a little safe fun in dark times. “Harnessing the power of the ARTS for the benefit of the community,” is their slogan, and this Arts/Music centric show does just that by shining a bright light on a few outstanding artists every Sunday.
The AGHH is the LBCAC-TV’s first show and step toward establishing Laguna’s first community TV station.
Kiki Ebsen is a versatile entertainer, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who has built an exciting career as a main stage performer, recording artist, and sought-after keyboardist. She has performed with some of the greats in the business including Boz Scaggs, Michael McDonald, and Christopher Cross. She is the daughter of an icon and her one-woman show, “To Dad with Love: A Tribute to Buddy Ebsen” garnered rave reviews from critics and audiences alike in its Los Angeles premiere. In the wake of a pandemic, Kiki has found a way to connect with audiences with her live stream on Facebook every Wednesday night at 9pm. This month she released the first single “Dead End Places” from her upcoming record “Fill Me Up” due in November and available for pre-order. You can find out more at kikiebsen.com
JOHN PRATT is a prolific and thought-provoking songwriter whose music is insightful, powerful, and meaningful. His career has spanned several decades beginning in the late ’70s as a lead singer in San Francisco’s live music scene. After moving to Los Angeles, he spent over 10 years fronting bands that featured his powerful vocals and sold out every major club in Southern California.
John released three albums under the Firefly band name in Europe and Asia, and in 2013 he released his critically acclaimed solo album Turn the Page. His next solo project, Welcome to the New World, is in the works. The richness of his music is a product of years of experience scoring and producing compositions for movies and all major television networks. He has composed music for film trailers and songs for some of the most successful telefilms.
“My work stems from traditional glass techniques at the height of our car culture. Living in the Americas and born and raised in South Africa, I see “Progression” and “Primitive” in one life. This in turn makes me search for simplicity and the spirit of humanity, which is complicated in this reality. Whether my work is conscious, subconscious or both does not matter. Creativity shows spirit, which is of no particular religion or ideal. Hope you enjoy my fantasy and future.”
