Love songs for Valentine’s Day 12 February 2012

If you’re in Los Angeles, join me and some lovely friends for a delicious organic, locally grown, vegan Love Dinner at HM157 on Tuesday Feb 14. I’ll play love songs, including one that I’ve never, ever played for anyone at all yet… and it’s $15 for the whole prix fixe menu and includes love ingredients like chocolate, chilies, avocados, honey, and more! BYOB!


Starts 7.30 p.m. at HM157, 3110 N. Broadway, Los Angeles CA 90031

Love is beyond the expected.

Love is inside you and me and all of us.

Actually, we are all made of Love, nothing more, nothing less.

As Spring uncovers crocuses from the snow, as eggs hatch the tiniest of chicks, as lambs take their first tentative steps into unknown pasture, and as our own hearts start to stir with lengthening daylight hours, stimulating the melatonin of our Circadian rhythms, and generating more connection and potential for amorous encounters, as Winter’s slumber lifts and the internal reflection of the cold season wanes…

Warm your hearts, Ladies and Gentlemen, and lift your cynicism, and extend your kindness and your generosity to one another, and shine your beauty!

Because Springtime is nearly upon us, and look, we have a Love Festival!

Love, Ysanne xxx

For what expresses love as keenly as a voice backed by strings??! 12 February 2011

Free download/ streaming audio for the Valentine Strings Special radio show I did for KXLU.

Listen here

Three hours of songs devoted to love in all its myriad, multi-faceted forms…

Songs of adoration, songs of yearning, songs of heartbreak, from the past 100 years, many of them obscure, overlooked, delicious and probably new to your ears.

Brand new unreleased songs, 60′s and 70′s tracks, and super vintage recordings from way back when records were hi-tech, and tape machines were positively sci-fi.

Tender, cruel, sophisticated, funny, romantic, heart-wrenching, erotic, despairing, passionate, vicious, mellow, cool, dark… and downright cheeky!

Peter Ludwig interviewed me, and as well as spinning records I sang and played a new song live in the studio, and also played violin for my friend Eric Lindley.

The show was on Sunday February 13th from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. PST.
For UK listeners, it was on Monday 14th February from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
