Amanda Richards was once heard by host Daniel playing on the downtown streets at the tender age of 19. Her voice, material and delivery belie her years--she has a bluesy feel of someone who has been around the block--and she has come a long way since then. Her upcoming performance at The Aladdin (headlining!--for the 2nd time there) is on Feb. 20.

Hawaiin singer-songwriter Nahko and Medicine for the People:
Nahko's music is not easily described. With influences spanning from the majestic mountains of Alaska, on down to the old growth forests of California, to the suburbs of Portland, to the middle of the Hawaiian tropics, his music crafts wisdom and intuition into stories and melodies that echo from your ears to your heart.
