GENRE

Classic Pop / Pop / Singer-Songwriter / Tribute Band
Tapestry: Tribute to Carole King

A beautiful re-creation of the Carole King songbook performed with live band and multi-media images.

Starring Jeannie Austin on piano and vocals with her back-up singers and band, Tapestry: Tribute to Carole King faithfully recreates the glorious sound of a Carole King concert, leaving you with memories of the great music she wrote and recorded, including “You’ve Got a Friend”, “Take Good Care of My Baby”, “The Loco-Motion” , “Natural Woman”, “It’s Too Late”, “So Far Away”, “Pleasant Valley Sunday”, “One Fine Day”, “Beautiful”, and “I Feel the Earth Move”.

Carole King is without question the most successful and revered female singer-songwriter in pop music history. More than 400 of her compositions have been recorded by over 1000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles – from “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” for the Shirelles to “Take Good Care of My Baby” and “Run to Him” (#1 and #2 hits for Bobby Vee in 1961), “Crying in the Rain” (The Everly Brothers, #6 in 1962), “The Loco-Motion” (Little Eva, #1 in 1962), “Up on the Roof” (The Drifters, #5 in 1962), “One Fine Day” (The Chiffons, #5 in 1963), “I’m Into Something Good” (Herman’s Hermits, #13 in 1964), “Just Once in My Life” (written with Phil Spector for The Righteous Brothers, #9 in 1965), and “Don’t Bring Me Down” (The Animals, #12 in 1966).  

It was her 1971 album “Tapestry” that took King to the pinnacle, winning all 3 of the key Grammy Awards – record, song and album of the year as well as best female vocalist honors for King. With more than 25 million units sold, Tapestry remained the best-selling album by a female artist for a quarter century, and King went on to amass three other platinum and seven gold albums.

Artist Bio

Jeannie Austin - Piano/Vocals

Jeannie brings a wealth of experience to the stage. After an Actors life in NYC and receiving a BA in Liberal Arts, music was the next ambition on her To Do list. She lives in Los Angeles and works in Film production by day and plays music at night. She loves all kinds of music and plays in multiple bands. Her first instrument was Piano, but also plays Acoustic and Electric rhythm guitar, with a little bit of Harmonica and Mandolin thrown in, and will take on any other instrumental challenge as needed. Music is a passion and Carole King is her inspiration.

Ori Huberman - Guitar/Vocals

Born in Chicago and raised in Israel, Ori developed a passion for music before he could walk. He started playing guitar at age 11 and hasn’t stopped since. After completing his military service in the IDF he committed himself to a life of a musician. He studied music in Israel and in Los Angeles where he finished as the outstanding student of the year, all the time keeping himself busy playing in various ensembles. Today he continues playing in original, cover, tribute, rock, jazz and swing bands and never turns down an opportunity to stretch himself musically.

Starr Light - Vocals

Born in Hollywood, CA, the little girl who came to be known as Starr grew up performing. Dance lessons transitioned into a talent for musical theater. While athletics played a dominant role during the high school years, come college time she declared theater as her major at Loyola Marymount University. Four years in the theater program and several productions later, Starr emerged from LMU with a desire to expand her horizons. A stint as an amateur competitive ballroom dancer through the USC Ballroom and Latin Team allowed her to experience many styles of partner dancing. Starr now sings lead in her own Los Angeles based cover band, Run For Cover LA, hosts and sings for The Dollface Dames burlesque troupe and provides background and lead vocals to other cover and original bands in a variety of genres. Â Not only does she love performing on stage, she enjoys encouraging other performers to find and embrace their inner super star.

Tim Battig - Keyboard/Vocals

Tim Battig is a multi-instrumentalist from Santa Monica, CA. A classically-trained

French Horn player, he not only plays and teaches all brass instruments, but also piano,

harmonica and even guitar and bass occasionally. He has worked with Ray Charles, Barry

White, Juan Gabriel and the band Morcheeba, as well as symphony orchestras, operas and

musical theater productions, and TV commercial recordings.

Eric Isaacson - Bass

"Eric switched from football to bass in his early teens after a sports related injury. In High School, Eric played in his High School Jazz band and performed with the late, great Dizzy Gillespe. After High School, Eric briefly attended Berklee College of Music. After moving to the Los Angeles area in 1992, Eric continued his involvement with music on “the other side of the glass” working as an engineer in recording studios. In 1998, he opened up Kronos Recording in Burbank, CA., where he recorded some of his idols including The Headhunters, Brandon Fields, and Billy Childs. Over time, certain clients and projects called for Eric’s contributions on bass, guitar, and sometimes even vocals. During the early part of this decade, Eric was played a song as an example of what the artist wanted to achieve in his recording. It was a minute into the song when Eric realized he was listening to himself on bass. This small world moment opened his eyes to the opportunities of performing on bass publicly.

Mel Flores - Drums

Over the last 20 plus years, Mel has performed with countless artists, ever developing his craft across multiple genres. From rock to funk, latin to country, and big band swing to contemporary christian music, the authenticity of his passion is clearly communicated in his playing. Mel is grateful to be a part of Tapestry.
