Alicia Healey

Alicia Healey - Songwriter, vocals, guitar, producer

 

Alicia Healey is a powerful vocalist, rhythm guitarist and bass player. She performs as a solo performer, with a trio (it adds harmonica, harmony vocals and electric guitar) as well as with a full band.
She learned to sing from Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Carly Simon and Olivia Newton-John and learned to write from John Prine, Gretchen Peters, James Taylor and Cat Stevens. However, performing is musical rubik’s cube.
She is also a sound mixer, sound consultant/co-ordinator, vocal and performance coach, and producer. The specialty is acoustic pop and folk; the approach is fun. In her new studio, The Winterblue Room, she has works with several local musicians on their projects. Her songwriting is featured on the CD “Quiet Here” and her new recording “Live at the Mansion.”
She spent several years with the acoustic country/folk group Rodeo Lagoon a group well-known in the Pacific Northwest for its amazing harmonies and fresh arrangements of folk and bluegrass songs. Rodeo Lagoon recorded an 7-song CD in 2001 which highlights both the lead-vocal prowess and the magical blend of the three voices.

Alicia Healey is a powerful vocalist, songwriter and producer in Seattle, WA.

She learned to sing from Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Carly Simon and Olivia Newton-John and learned to write from John Prine, Gretchen Peters, Patty Griffin and Cat Stevens. She found and grew a passion for music as a kid on the living room floor of an Iowa farmhouse, with a set of Robucks headphones and her dad’s LP collection.

At the Winterblue Room, a small project studio in West Seattle, she works with both emerging and established artists on performance, songwriting and song arrangement. The specialty is acoustic pop, Americana, country and folk; the approach is give-‘er-a-try. Samples of songwriting, production and vocal arrangement available on aliciahealey.com (your here!) and thewinterblueroom.com.

Kelly Paletta - Drums / Percussion

 

Easily one of the finest drummers in the Pacific Northwest, Kelly has played with a SLEW of people and all genres… except maybe death metal. Andrea Wittgens, Kimm McIver among many others. Here’s his bio from “Seattle Drummer” – I had to post it (although his two kids are a bit more grown):
“Kelly’s drumming addiction began in the mid seventies. At 10 years old, desperately wanting to imitate the older brother that he idolized, he signed up for Mr. Childers’ beginning band at Tonalea elementary school in Scottsdale, AZ. Not long after that the older brother was able to kick the drum habit but Kelly remains hopelessly addicted. Aside from the esteemed Mr. Childers, Kelly has also studied with: Dan Tomlinson, Gary Cook, Ted Connell, Jeff Hamilton, Alex Acuna, George Marsh, Ed Soph and Peter Erskine. He has published articles in Modern Drummer and has performed and recorded in various styles including: jazz, rock, reggae, country western and more. Kelly attended the University of Arizona on a music scholarship and was a member of the Disney All American College Band in 1986. Over the years he has performed with: Andy Narrell, Pete Christlieb, Bobby Shew, Abel and Allen Reggae Review, Riddim Fashion, Island Time Steel Drum Band, Eagle Creek Band and The Herbivores. Kelly currently resides in Newcastle, WA with a wife, a kid (and one on the way), two cats, and a mother-in-law who thinks that he is “peachy.” Kelly’s drum addiction continues. His latest fix includes hits of Gretsch, Camco, Zildjian, Paiste, Sabian, Pintech, Roland, Alesis and LP.”

Easily one of the finest drummers in the Pacific Northwest, Kelly has played with a SLEW of people and all genres… except maybe death metal. Andrea Wittgens, Jimm McIver among many others. He's also the 'go-to' drummer for several musical theatre companies in the Seattle area.

Adrian Libertini - Upright bass / Vocals

Adrian comes to us from Connecticut via New York, San Diego and San Francisco. Versitile and wonderful, he has sruvived through stints in a mind-blowing New York fusion group (Helmet of Gnats), a San Diego jam band (Noodle), a San Francisco dotcom groove band (jp*orbit) an experimental cabaret ensemble (Madd Vibe Orchestra) and a parent-friendly kid’s band (Orange Sherbet).

Adrian's regular gig is with The Side Project who plays all over the Seattle area - their music has been featured on of Dancing with the Stars. Alas, their success keeps Adrian pretty busy, but we love to play music with him anytime we can get him!
