JD Hinton, Harriet Schock, Anna Montgomery: Songs in the Night
Join us for an evening of music with JD Hinton, Harriet Schock, Anna Montgomery and their bands at Hollywood's intimate Theatre/Theater just west of LaBrea on Pico Blvd. Presenters Ginger Perkins, Pauline Annakin and Bill Immerman hope you will join them for a relaxing evening of great music, the perfect conclusion for a Spring evening in Los Angeles. Harriet Schock will be on the bill with JD on April 9 and Anna Montgomery with James Lucchesi on drums will perform with JD on April 16.
In case you haven't met JD, Harriet, or Anna, or even if you do know them, here's a bit about them you may not know:
Born/Hometown: June 12, Waco, Texas
Occupation: Words and Music
Lives in: Austin, Hollywood, the occasional "undisclosed location"
New CD: "Echo Park"
Next concert: Hollywood, California
Last good movie I saw: (two) "Argo" and "Silver Linings Playbook"
Personal heroes: Lincoln, Moses, my "no matter what" friends
Nobody knows I'm: more than a little private
I'm better than anyone else: in translating the Texas language
If I could do it over, I'd: start sooner
I'd give anything to meet: "some enchanted evening"
My fantasy is: none of your business!
One thing I can't stand: oral certitude posing as moral certitude
People who knew me in high school thought I was: saner than I am
My most irrational act: You'd have to ask several girls I dated
If I weren't "drawn to show business", I'd be: a bad golfer
If I've learned one thing in life, it's: the truth is better than you think
Most humbling experience: seeing Monument Valley
The three words that best describe me: "now in progress"
Hinton's songs turn up regularly in films including Mark Medoff's CHILDREN ON THEIR BIRTHDAYS, a 1947 period film, featuring, "I Have to Dream" sung by CELINE DION. Hinton has taken his original music into Los Angeles clubs including the House of Blues and the Viper Room and he performed to outstanding reviews for three weeks at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland. On the final Christmas of the millennium, JD sang at the Vatican for the Pope. He's ready to sing for you.
