Randy Lee Odell presents… Flowtilla
fresh groove music for omnivores…
Flowtilla is a San Francisco Bay Area based trio formed in 2000 by guitarist Len Paterson, and bassist Ellen Schoenwetter. Their driving sound is an eclectic mix of funk, rock, afro, jazz and world tinged grooves. Drummer Randy Lee Odell completes the trio this evening in Bird & Beckett’s “canyon moonlight” concert series.
Flowtilla’s music has been used on cable t.v shows as well as commercial cues. These include A&E Biography specials on Stevie Wonder, Billy Crystal and Kirstie Alley, HBO’s Real Sex, Gene Simmons Family Jewels and Emeril Green’s “Green Planet.”
Flowtilla released their first cd. under the name “Len Paterson Trio”, which they self produced on their own label, Acorn Sonata. Entitled “Sunny Cloudy”, it was voted one of the top 10 records of 2001 on JamBase. Len Paterson also made the top 10 guitarist list. They have released three more self produced c.d.s on their Acorn Sonata label. In 2003, Flowtilla came out with “Out of the Inside”; in 2006, “Clariphonic”, and “Waves and Particles” in 2011.
They have played many Bay Area clubs including Jupiter, The Boom Boom Room, Grant & Green, Cafe du Nord, Blake’s, Starry Plough, Sweetwater, Paragon Bar, and the Claremont Hotel, and have performed at the High Sierra Music Festival as well as many Bay Area street fairs, festivals and private events. Flowtilla has opened for New Monsoon, Will Bernard, Merle Saunders and Living Daylights.
Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
