A San Francisco native born into a family of professional musicians and entertainers, Sam Peoples started playing professionally in the early 70s with his friend and mentor, Lee Hester. Together, they founded the Haight-Ashbury Music Workshop. He’s toured with Oscar Brown, Jr., the Pointer Sisters, Sonny Simmons, and more, but has been recently touring with Charles Unger in the US and throughout Europe. Sam Peoples’ most recent musical endeavor is with Lynne Billig as a piano-vocal duo.
Lynne Billig entered the music scene as an adult by taking a different path than most—through software development. After asking herself what she wanted to be when she “grew up,” she discovered her vocal niche in singing American Jazz Standards in the San Francisco Bay Area—a place full of generous, talented musicians who are open to providing newcomers with musical opportunities. Along with the harmonic progressions of American Jazz Standards, Billig says she “particularly love[s] the lyrics in these works. They’re clever, literary, and…tell an emotional story that people of all ages and backgrounds can relate to.”
