I am singer-songwriter and cellist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Although I had a classical formation in the Conservatory, I've always played popular music.
In 2011, I recorded my first solo album called 'Azul Otra Vez', with songs written by me. I've also been part of different bands through the years, playing and singing brazilian music, tango and latin american music. Nowadays, I am the cellist of a chamber orchestra called 'Las Vecinas de Amadeus' that plays pop music with classical arrangements. I'm also working on songs for a new album.
I love music in all its styles and forms, music makes me happy and heals me.

Hi! I'm Libby, I play the drums and instead of carting a whole drum kit onto the street, two buckets a seat and sticks will do the job. I'm currently studying Jazz Drums at the Queensland Conservatorium and I'm loving every minute of it. Any chance I get to make people smile is absolutely worth it and when you're generally the loudest in the band, it's pretty easy.

Music has been the light, breath and sustenance of my life since I left my small hometown in Washington State after high school. I rode freight trains and hitch-hiked down to New Orleans and have been based out of there since then. I have continued to travel during different times of the year to places around the United States, as well as Europe and Central America. I usually just bring my fretless Banjo that I built one summer when I was back visiting my family in WA, my tap shoes and my voice and just go to the streets of the town I am in. I sing and play and through that meet friends and get shows. I have been playing more in venues over the past year in New Orleans, but I am still at heart a street performer, I believe it is one of the strongest and truest ways of reaching people!

I started playing guitar about four years ago, then I started writing songs, and a few years later I decided to take my music to the streets on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. That's what I've been doing ever since that first day on 3rd Street with my little amp and flower pot tip jar. I play all over Southern California, but The Promenade is my musical home. I love being able to share my music in such a unique way and instantly see the impact I have on others. I feel like I'm living the dream.

I am a 29-year-old girl. I have traveled extensively in search of the oral music of different countries, and so was born my passion for singing, for all the music that comes from below, along the roads and in the hidden places of the city. Singing means to me reproducing the sounds met along my way and giving them a new time to live.
I've been a busker officially since I started performing with a guitar player in London back in 2011. In 2012, I decided to do a busking tour of Australia to promote my album 'The A Cappella Sessions', which I did in 2 and a half months, surviving on donations of passers-by! It was an incredible experience that I'm willing to renew again!

I'm a songwriter and I write for a 5 piece band but every song I write begins with me and my guitar. I love the bare setting of busking solo but I'm a rock star at heart and there's nothing like collaborating with other musicians.
