[EXPAND More information]


CALICO the band is three: Kirsten Proffit, Manda Mosher, and Aubrey Richmond. All are great and dedicated musicians, each with accomplished and celebrated solo careers under way. That is, until Calico brought them together. As powerful as each is individually, an undeniable magic occurs when all three come together. It’s at the heart of their debut album, Rancho California, which is replete with singularly strong songwriting chops, rich harmonies, and a pervasive Americana passion. Like the expansive spirit of Laurel Canyon that spawned so many famous bands and artists, now comes this new spirit, rooted in the vast valleys and canyons of L.A.

Calico stands for California country, and also for the cat that appeared at Manda’s door one dark night, and a ghost town about halfway between L.A. and Vegas. It’s in the gentle mystery of that cat, and in that dusty stretch of desert that their music starts, haunted by Western ghosts of the past, but gentle with modern spirits, too, all blown together like tumbleweeds towards the big city. Calico is about that eternal place where the big city meets that lonely desert, where the freeways converge at the ocean. It’s about timeless roots music; it’s about voices singing in harmony.

Savannah Philyaw

I’m Savannah and I’m a 20 year old singer songwriter from San Diego, California. Music has always fascinated me with the way it can take over your emotions without asking your permission to do so. I am inspired by everything I do and everything I see. I write music based on experiences that have affected me and the people around me. These experiences are things that we all go through during the courses of our lives. Whether it be falling in love for the first time or losing a friend, I feel that a song can evoke emotions that spoken words cannot.

Songwriting is my release, my passion, and my best friend. It has allowed me to be honest and open without fearing judgement. I hope that my music can inspire others like other music inspires me. I usually write about happy things and those experiences that can make us all smile no matter what time of day. To me, songs are like public diaries. Whoever hears your music knows exactly how you felt at the time the song was written. It’s actually a little frightening at times. I hope that my music can relate to you and the emotions that you experience during your life (especially if you’re a teenage girl like me). Songwriting is not what I do, it’s who I am.
