Front Porch Series Welcomes Passionate Soul Artist Leila Lopez

TUCSON (Observer Update) - Wingspan's Front Porch, November 14, 7:00 p.m. at 425 E. 7th St., welcomes Tucson musician Leila Lopez. You've seen her at Plush. You've seen her at Delectables. You've seen her at the 4th Avenue Fair and the Folk Music Festival. Now see her at Wingspan. No charge. Leila Lopez is a gentle, passionate soul whose inner rhythms manifest an assumingly gorgeous grace. In broad sweeping colors of folk, jazz and latin influence, Leila's mellifluous voice and quiet chords articulate a prayerful, joyful love of life, as if to remind us, "The universe is not made up of atoms, but of music."

Leila has been recording, producing and distributing her albums independently for three years. She has had the honor to open for national performances of Joanna Newsom, Tim Reynolds, The Mountain Goats, Amos Lee, Brandi Carlile, Keaton Simons and the Hot Buttered Rum String Band.

If you are a musician and would like to play the Wingspan Front Porch series, please contact Geovanna (520) 624-1779 ext. 119/ and/or Courtney Robbins at
