AMAE LOVE is an eclectic singer / songwriter with a sultry, soulful voice that embodies a modern approach to soul, blues, R&B and jazz. Similar to artists like Amy Winehouse & Adele, Amae takes the best of that classic vintage sound and combines it with soulful, bluesy melodies paired with positive & empowering lyrics. She likes to call this style “Singin’ the Purples” as in: a higher consciousness version of the blues. Amae is a multi-faceted talent whose skills as performer include Improvisation, MC’ing, hoop dance, DJ’ing, Dance, and guitar. She has performed all over the West Coast festival circuit as well as the illustrious stages of Las Vegas. 

Some shining moments include opening up for Zap Mama at Earthdance Festival, a full stage show at BOOM festival in Portugal, and opening up for Theivery Corporation at Lightining in a Bottle. Amae’s recent Solo and group performances have included The Bagatelle in Vegas, Envision Festival, Harmony Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, the Raw Spirit Festival, Emrg-n-see, Alchemeyez, Mystic Garden Party, Burning Man, Beloved, Horning’s Hideout, & Bali Spirit Festival. She has sung with a host of west-coast underground acts such as the Human Experience, Everyone Orchestra, David Starfire, Gaudi, Blane Lyon, Nicoluminous, Cornflower, the Human Revolution, the Luminaries, Sasha Rose, Lynx, Desert Dwellers, Phadroid, Lucent Dossier and many others. Originally raised in San Diego, this will be Amae's first performance in her hometown in many years.

Visionary Singer/Songwriter, Krista Richards creates a safe space for hearts to open; through dynamic live experiences, transformational mentorship, and by creating one of a kind custom songs. 

Krista draws people into the profound presence of LOVE unlike any other. Her powerful storytelling mixed with her heart-stirring songs creates a perfect recipe for transformation; delivering the emotional experience you never knew you always wanted. Krista empowers her songs and lyrics with an unmistakable and infectious zeal for not only the music she creates but for the connection the music allows her with people everywhere. Speaking and singing from such a deep place of compassion and love has won Krista a wide and loyal fan base and captured the hearts of audiences worldwide. For the past 20 years Krista has been pouring her heart out for tens of thousands of fans on stages from Tokyo, Japan to New York City to the City of Angels and has shared some of those stages with the likes of Grammy Award winners Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys & Everlast. 

"I believe music gives us permission to feel, which helps us heal and open to love so that we can harmonize with ourselves, those around us, and all that is." ~ Krista Richards

SHANTAYA BONEJA offers the world a gift of healing through sacred mantras. Her elegant and expansive music played on piano or harmonium, gracefully blended with dynamic vocals and a devotional heart, provide a supportive wave of peace and transformation. She has been a professional musician since 1996 with training in voice, piano, rhythm and music theory at the Otto-Friedrich University of Bamberg, Germany. In 2009, she began an old-style rhythm and blues project and became the lead singer of Jenny Boneja & the Ballroomshakers which toured throughout Europe, attaining her a nomination for Germany's Best Female Voice in Rhythm and Blues. In January 2013 she moved to New Orleans to study yoga and to get the feel for the real New Orleans Music. In March 2015 Shantaya released her Album “ Healing Mantra Unveil” and is currently touring on various yoga Festivals and is teaching workshops.
