Amber Gougis live on Fog City Blues

282233_436584519714944_502847916_n.jpg

Amber Gougis is going places, but she’s taking her own winding way. A thoughtful singer who infuses jazz with soul and brings an improvisation-laced sensibility to Chicago blues and mid-century R&B, she’s earned widespread respect around the Bay Area music scene.

Through her originals and carefully selected book of songs, she seeks to serve her evangelical impulse to promote soul music. Whether it’s Irma Thomas, Candi Staton, or Little Willie John, her goal is to introduce people to great artists who deserve utmost respect and recognition. Amber has just released an EP and joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 2/24 at 9 pm.
