Andrew Jamieson is dedicated to spiritual transformation through his work as a pianist, keyboardist, composer and arranger. With a passion for black gospel music, he plays for faith communities including City of Refuge UCC in Oakland and serves as Minister of Music at Bethel Community Presbyterian Church in San Leandro. With a passion for free improvisation and experimentation, he plays in bay area improvisational groups, including Ell3 and Nine Fingers, and he completed a Master's of Arts in music composition at Mills College. Working to integrate these musical traditions, he composed the avant-gospel chamber opera Heaven Down Here meditating on the story of Jim Jones' Peoples Temple, and is working on an album of experimental piano arrangements of African American spirituals.

Edgetone Records was founded by musician/producer, Rent Romus. The label took shape in 1991 to support his group’s original jazz recordings. After being on a long hiatus Rent re-opened Edgetone in January 2000 and expanded it to support avant-garde and experimental music and recordings crossing the genre boundaries specifically for D.I.Y. (do it yourself) artists looking for a ground base and community label identity. In 2016 the label now carries over 180 releases from artists across the United States and beyond.

Cost: $10-$15 sliding scale
