Americana artist Stevens is a third-generation musician, formerly with the band, Coyote Grace. That band released five well-received albums, and toured with the Indigo Girls, Melissa Ferrick, Cris Williamson and Lowen & Navarro, among others. He got hooked on songwriting as a 15-year-old and has kept it up ever since. Stevens has used his talents to speak up for various causes, and has been traveling with his music for years.
This show will showcase an eclectic repertoire of original song collaborations by the pair.
Music starts at 8 p.m. Friday at Coffee Gallery Backstage, 2029 N. Lake Ave., Altadena. Tickets are $20. Call (626) 798-6236 or visit coffeegallery.com.
