Karmacoda and Sutro’s secret concert

A lucky audience, a night to remember.

Karmacoda and Sutro are two premiere indietronic/chillout bands that hail from the Bay Area (even though Sutro relocated to PDX a few years ago).

Both groups have mesmerizing female vocalists backed by talented musicians and digital wizardry. They both have a great song catalog that ranges from super chill to anthemic. I was thrilled when I got invited to a private concert recently where I could hear both of them.

Sutro opened the show, with lead vocalist Tyler Stone performing some of my favorite tracks from their earlier releases like “How Things Transpire” and “Broken Distance.”

Sutro has been known to perform with Thievery Corporation and other artists. They’ve also got some new tracks coming out soon, and you can hear on Groovera.

Karmacoda took the stage next, with their new, soulful lead vocalist Jessica Ford commanding the stage. Jessica is awesome, and she took Karmacoda’s old and new tracks to powerful new heights. She had many of us singing along with her.

You can hear Jessica on this track:

Karmacoda has been a longtime Bay Area favorite, with a track record of quality music releases and videos. If you’re lucky, you can catch them at venues like Hotel Utah in San Francisco. You can also buy their albums and tracks on iTunes, including Illuminate, Evidence, Love and Fate, and Eternal. Here’s their track “Epic” (from Eternal), featuring Heather Pierce on vocals.

Many thanks to B, Jessica, Tyler, and to all of Karmacoda and Sutro for this inspiring night of chill music and cool people in a fantastic location!
