First Tuesdays at The Uptown Nightclub hosts Grab ‘Em By The Songs; a monthly songwriter series featuring Bay Area songwriters performing songs in the round. Here is November’s lineup:

Emily Zisman-HOSTING
Emily Zisman is a folk-Americana singer-songwriter born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. As a writer, she takes her cues from artists like Dar Williams, Joni Mitchell, and Ani DiFranco. She sings of our vulnerabilities and fears, love and fight, crafting her lyrics into song with her soulfully-folk voice evocative of Emmylou Harris.

Willa Mamet
BIO: Willa Mamet hails from Vermont and lives with her piano in Oakland. She likes all the words and long walks on the beach. Oh, and music.

Eileen Torez
Born and raised in Corrales, New Mexico, Eileen Torrez has made the Bay Area her home and the artist-activist community her family since 2013. Her music blends folk, pop, R&B and jazz into unique melodies layered over the sweetness of her nylon-stringed guitar. She released her debut album, Honey, and Zest, in 2016. As an organizer and social worker, Eileen weaves themes of resilience, community, anti-capitalism and women’s empowerment into her songwriting. She is a poet mentor with Youth Speaks and is passionate about building strength and community through art. You can learn more about Eileen on her website, www.eileentorrez.com, or follow her Eileen Torrez
