Downtown LA’s Thought-Provokers

LA has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.  Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around DTLA that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I grew up in a very musical household in New York City- my dad is a pianist and music director and my mom is a writer (and my little brother plays bass!). There was singing and piano playing in my house. Read more>>
