L.A. songwriter Silberman back


On Friday, Jan. 29, Los Angeles-based altrock singer-songwriter and guitarist Vanessa Silberman returns to perform at The Garage Coffee, Music & More.

Silberman is a founding member of the band Diamonds Under Fire. She also is an independent A&R, record producer/engineer, graphic artist, entrepreneur and has a artist development label called A Diamond Heart Production.

Her band Diamonds Under Fire has been around for well over a decade,  self released numerous EPs and toured the U.S. 10 times — also playing Canada, the UK, SXSW and SSMF. The band has been featured on 4 Vans ‘Off The Wall’ Compilations, in Guitar Player Magazine with a cover callout, on Time Warner’s ‘SoCal Beat, as well as had features on NPR.com, Buzzbands.la, LARecord.com and LAWeekly.com and regular spins on commercial and non-com radio (including KWSS 93.9FM AZ).

Silberman’s live shows and music has often been compared to the raw bare bones rock ‘n roll of Nirvana, The Ramones, Joan Jett, and Chrissie Hynde, with the danciness of No Doubt and the pop sensibilities of Pink.

Silberman released her first solo single “Think Tank (feat. Derek Jordan)” July 21, 2015. Her show in Fort Stockton is part of her 30+ Solo U.S. Tour in support of her upcoming new single “American Folk Rock,” scheduled for release on February 14 (Valentine's Day).

Reviews include:

  •  “Vanessa has managed to make music nostalgic of 90’s era grunge, worthy of a 21st century platform.” — Simplenvrmt.com
  • “Grunge-chic” — Freeindie.com
  • “Silberman broke from the norm. In a music scene full of pretty, glamorous female musicians, Silberman provided an aesthetic more akin to Joey Ramone and a musical sound reminiscent of ’90s rock with static guitar and angsty vocals.” — Dailynexus.com

Jeb Spacepilot will kick off the night.

Show begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $3 in advance or $5 on day of show and can be purchased at The Garage, 1110 N. Main St. in Fort Stockton, or at TheGarageTX.com. Tickets are required for all attendees aged eight and up; ages seven and under are free.
