Heidi “HIDE” Martin
A passionate and raw songstress, Vocalist/Composer Heidi Martin makes each song her own. Her socially conscious compositions challenge the listener to hear with an introspective ear. A Washington D.C. Native who studied music at the University of the District of Columbia with Professor Calvin Jones and continued privately with drummer/vocalist Grady Tate, Martin credits the legend with helping her find her “voice” as an artist.
A sought after collaborator, Martin has performed and/or recorded with Nicholas Payton, Reuben Brown, Steve Williams, Russell Gunn, Orrin Evans, Eric Revis, Gregoire Maret and the late Keter Betts, since making her 1999 debut on the New York jazz scene at Birdland. Martin honed her craft in New York City at the legendary Blue Note, the Knitting Factory, The Zinc Bar (w/Ron Affif), Cachaca, Metronome and continues to perform nationwide at Zanzibar Blue, Blues Alley, Bohemian Caverns and Twins Lounge. Internationally she has performed at the Pori Jazz Festival, Finland and at Chelsea’s splendid Cadogan Hall in London, England. Martin is a featured vocalist on trumpeter Russell Gunn’s 2008 release, Love Stories and most recently, she performed the Cole Porter Songbook to a sold-out crowd at the 2011 DC Jazz Festival.
Each independently released project; Alone Together (1998) and HIDE (2005), have been met with critical acclaim and have lead Martin to domestic and international touring since her professional career began in New York City in 1999. Four of her compositions (Memphis, Rice, I Wanna Comfort You, Why Do I?) were chosen as a soundtrack to REVOLUTION ’67 – a documentary about the 1967 Newark rebellion by Emmy-nominated filmmakers Jerome and Marylou Bongiorno. The film was screened at the 27th Annual IFP Market in New York and debuted on PBS July 10th, 2007. In 2006 Martin was hand-picked to compete in the London International Jazz Vocal Competition (LIJC), where she placed as a top finalist among some 107 competitors from over 25 nations. Martin is a sensitive vocalist that delivers lyrics in an intimate mood on ballads and can be at once; open and intense yet deliberate on medium swing. In the words of Vanessa Rubin, “soaring soulful riffs, bending notes, and high notes that are so focused so right, they ring! It’s a wonderful experience for the listener!”
See hear, Love (1/2011)

Ron Finley, “Gangster Gardener” Delivers TED Lecture On Neighborhood Gardens And Health
Ron Finley is a successful clothing designer and artist from Los Angeles whose life got a little dirtier when he realized something strange about his neighborhood.
He found that South Central, Los Angeles was overwhelmingly filled with “Liquor stores. Fast food. Vacant lots,”but had no great place to get fresh, affordable produce. “People are losing their homes, they’re hungry, they’re unemployed, and this area is so underserved with nutritional food.” Finley was quoted in an article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times.
Since he’d just taken a course on gardening at the Natural History Museum, he decided to put his newfound knowledge to good use and planted a garden in a small strip of grass by his house with the help of his teacher, Florence Nishida and some friends.
Even though Finley used a small plot of land — about 10 feet wide, 150 feet long according to the Los Angeles Times — the city still gave him a citation, which eventually turned into a warrant. His garden, filled with tomatoes, peppers and chard, celery, kale and herbs, had been deemed illegal.
Luckily with the help of LA Green Grounds, a charity he co-founded to help spread gardens throughout Los Angeles, Finley managed to overcome the citation, with the additional encouragement of his councilman, Herb Wesson. LA Green Grounds continues to help communities acquire gardening skills and grow their own produce, “And it always amazes me how planting a bunch of seeds or plants really can change someone’s life as they watch it grow, and then harvest it. I’ve seen people light up and literally change before my eyes.” Finley explains.
“Growing your own food is like printing your own money,” Finley said in his TED talk. He has educated his community in the importance of gardening as a sustainable, cost-effective and healthy activity in the hopes the can help turn these “food deserts” into “food forests.”
Finley perfectly sums up the significance of his gardening movement with this very promising observation: “If kids grow kale, kids eat kale!”

NickiiJean Models on the Red Carpet
Nicole “Nickiijean” Alexander
Born in Pasadena, California, Nickii was told many times as a child that she should model, but she did not have the resources or her mother’s approval due to strict religious beliefs. Years later, her mother was diagnosed with cancer and before losing her ability to talk, she encouraged Nickii to pursue modeling and expressed how deeply she believed in her daughter. Since her mother’s passing, Nickii has pursued her modeling career with fervor, determination, and that very special blessing.
Since 2008, Nickii has walked the runway for Ed Hardy, David Kahn, Bongo Republic, BLOW, Rich Scampi, Jay Stone, Lucy Bea, Skimwear, Raw Appeal, Lilly Blue and Malachi, amongst many others. One of Nickii’s brightest moments was in 2011 when she lit up the runway during LA Fashion Week for Forever 21.
Nickii has been published in Elm Magazine, graced the cover of Live in Happiness Magazine, and worked campaigns for Disphunktional Clothing. She has also appeared in Look Books for Michael Kluch, Sophistifunk Clothing, Eschenee Swimwear, and Fuxwitme Apparel. She has been featured in a M.U.D. cosmetic tutorial video and made appearances in music videos for Cali Swag District, Bobbie Debarge Jr., Major James, Kendrick Lemar, and Jay Rock. Nickii is also the new spokes model for Fat X 101 Fitness. She can be seen in Fat X 101 fitness videos and modeling their new clothing line in the near future.
With a portfolio that is quickly expanding, Nickii is emerging as one of the most talented models of her generation and one of the freshest faces of today. However, this model is not just beauty; she is also actively involved in her community and a motivational speaker. Annually, Nickii participates in the Cancer Walk for the City of Pasadena in honor of her mother, and she is the Founder and Creator of the “Model in the Making” Mentoring Program for local youth.
“If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” – Nicole “Nickiijean” Alexander

has the melodicism of Max Roach or Roy Haynes.”—Dave Wayne,
“Anderies’ whispery cymbals growing to a succession of waves as the sax and bass rise tectonically against it – a call for help in a storm, maybe?”
Trevor will be appearing at the Blue Whale Jazz Club:

BENNIE MAUPIN: A Living Legend
As subtle as the melodic and rhythmic sounds of his bass clarinet, this musician still influences the music scene after decades of accomplishments that places him as one of the few living legends in the world of contemporary jazz. Bennie Maupin is international known for his contributions towards the recognition of the bass clarinet in the world of improvisational music. Bennie is equally noted as a leading multi-woodwind soloist and composer.
After emerging on the New York scene during the mid 60’s in the company of notable contemporaries such as, Roy Haynes, Marion Brown, Horace Silver, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Lee Morgan and Woody Shaw, to name only a few, Bennie began a self imposed hiatus in Southern California, where he studied, taught and prepared for his next public emergence into the world of creative music.
Fast forwarding to the present, the legendary Bennie Maupin will be honored by Howard University on Thursday, November 17, 2011 as the recipient of the prestigious Benny Golson Jazz Master Award. This award is bestowed upon prominent jazzmen that have made extraordinary contributions to jazz music. Its truly an honor well deserved by this year’s recipient.

Dr. Golson, jazz composer and saxophonist, is the composer of the following jazz standards: Killer Joe, Along Came Betty, Blues March, I Remember Clifford, Stablemates, and many others.
In recent years, Maupin continues to make his mark both compositionally and through his active touring and recordings with The Bennie Maupin Ensemble. In addition to being a featured artist in various groups of jazz luminaries.

It is 1915 and America is about to lose its innocence. Martin O’Grady has lost his, and his mulatto son shows no intention of letting it be forgotten. That is, as long as he hasn’t been paid for services rendered to his father. The two men clash when the father is forced to pay his son by the only woman he ever loved, who is now part owner of the most profitable bordello in St. Augustine, Florida. Promises are made; contracts to be honored; while a hurricane makes it deadly approach.

Write Act Rep presents D3LINQUENTZ
Write Act Repertory Theatre’s Producing Artistic Director John Lant, Associate Artistic Director Ken Cosby and Citizen LA are proud to present D3linquentz: a unique one-woman comedic experience written & performed by Stefany Northcutt.
THE STORY: The D3linquentz dramedy centers on “four juvenile delinquents sent to a Group Home to straighten up.” Stefany, Irma, Laprell and Trinity –at risk youth destined to cross paths– have been given one last chance to get it right. Guided by House Parents, counselors, probation officers and their family, these wounded souls will spend six months driving each other crazy while facing inner demons within an intense regimented correctional program. Each must choose a path: a choice to continue down a self-destructive path destined for abuse, imprisonment and possibly death or a choice leading to personal reform and spiritual redemption.
THE MESSAGE: The choices that face the four adolescent main characters in D3linquentz are real world decisions that ultimately affect us all. Regardless of our social status, our location on earth or our daily inter-personal interactions, at risk youth are an unfortunate part of our world consciousness. The compelling narrative is derived from Stefany’s personal experience with the subject matter which is honest and raw while remaining transformative and uplifting. D3linquentz delves into the often intense subject matter by offering levity and rich comedic overtones to deliver a universal message of hope.
Produced by Stefany Northcutt & George C. Stiehl; Direction by George C. Stiehl; Lighting Design by Sergio Escobar. Stefany Northcutt has performed in various leading roles at Write Act Rep including Christie Perfetti’s Our Beds Are Crowded & the upcoming No Fault.

Stefany has acted alongside Chuck Norris’ son, Mike Norris, in the film A Greater Yes. She has appeared in various indie films and TV commercials such as Little Caesar’s and Pier One Imports. Stefany has also performed frequently at Comic Strip Live in New York City. She is a graduate of New York’s American Musical & Dramatic Academy and has been privately coached under Tony Greco and Mark Scarola.
George C. Stiehl serves as Co-Founder & Executive Producer for Citizen LA: a unique lifestyle media company based in Downtown LA supporting creative talent, innovative thinkers and industry partners.
