Amber & Smoke plus special guests

Amber & Smoke is a folk n’ soul duo from Ventura County. “Imagine Tina Turner fronts The Eagles,” wrote one newspaper critic, describing Amber Olive’s electric stage presence and her captivating voice combined with Bill Rotella’s vocal style and his variety of guitars, harmonicas and ukulele. Bill featured Amber on his 2017 solo release, “amber and smoke”. They then recorded a full-length album together titled “Riverbound” which was released this year. Bill “Smoke” Rotella comes from a family of musicians. He is the son of Johnny Rotella, songwriter for Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and many others. His dad was also an L.A studio musician with saxophone, clarinet and flute tracks on many hit records (Steely Dan, Sonny and Cher, The Turtles, etc) . Bill's Uncle Jerry Gray was the renowned big band arranger for Glenn Miller (String of Pearls and many others).

Special guests include David Foster Evans, Matt Vargo, and Sarah Biklen.
