There are artists that one comes across where it's a given that they are incredibly talented and Sheri Pedigo is one of them.
Pedigo first came into my purview a few years ago when she friended me on Facebook.
She would periodically send me links to new songs that she had written and let me know what adventure she was currently on. Pedigo's voice is smooth like silk and melodic and as a siren's call. Her nickname is the "Angel With Soul" and she has also been dubbed the female Elvis.
Having said that, everyone knows that the studio can work miracles with a voice and turn a croak into a knee-knocking sigh. This is not the case with Pedigo.
At the recently deceased actress Angela McEwan's memorial service I had the opportunity to hear and feel the full impact that is Pedigo's reputation up close and personal. Pedigo sang a heart felt song dedicated to McEwan and also written by her.
McEwan is primarily known for her acting on the film Nebraska, but she also was a very prolific poetess who had read one of her poems on a video edition of the LA Times last year. The poem and song are titled "Age and The Universe" Pedigo had offered to put the poem to music and sing it at the memorial service.
For inspiration while writing the music, Pedigo was watching "Thelma and Louise" which features a song by Glenn Frey titled "Part of Me, Part of You" and she decided to throw in a line from that song. Frey has also recently passed away and it was a fitting tribute to him.
Pedigo and McEwan had met in 2015 at an Oscar Gifting Salon event and both were clients of publicist Carlos Martinez.
Pedigo's background includes co-writing 3 songs with actress Dyan Cannon; co-writing a triple platinum song titled "Break Away" for European rock band Gotthard. In addition, she has acted in the film "Butterfly Circus."
Pedigo's music pedigree traces back to her beloved uncle Howard Gosser. Gosser is a well known entertainment personality in Nashville, Tennessee that saw her limitless talent and show cased her in TV and radio shows back when she was young and struggling. Among the shows he created to show case her talent was the "Country Junction."
Current projects for the Los Angeles based Pedigo is a chapter in an anthology titled "Redeeming The Screens" and she plans on writing a song about death and dying. "We think we're going to live forever and then we don't. We are all going to exit this earth and life is a gift," Pedigo adds.
It is hard to pidgin hole Pedigo's genre and if you would like to see for yourself visit her website www.sheripedigo.com where you will find links to her music, bio, and more photos. You will also find out that she is a vocal coach that can help you hone your vocal range.
Among her passions is the rescue and care for the plight of wild horses which includes wild Mustangs. Pedigo devotes a lot of her time and energy to helping wild horses and has also joined forces with actor William Shatner of Star Trek fame for a joint venture to raise funds for wild horses.
Getting tired of the "Ke$ha" and Dr. Luke psycho-drama being played out on all avenues of media availability. By all accounts it appears that Ke$ha wants out of her recording contract. While I think that there is more to this than is being stated, can a record company please step-up and buy out her Sony contract with a clause regarding the REAL issue here? PLEASE!
After the joke that was the Grammy Awards Show, all I can say is that it appears that it has gone the way of Rolling Stone Magazine. Sadly, it no longer seems to hold to relevance as it once did and can be likened more to being the McDonalds of the music award shows than it is for excellence or relevance in music.
The Dog's front man Loren Molinare has agreed to do a show in NoHo after his other band, Little Caesar, returns from their European tour. It looks like a June, 2016 gig is likely. Look out townies, real rock and roll is coming.
