Cindy Lee Berryhill is a singer-songwriter and a Southern California native who has released 6 albums and many compilations since Who’s Gonna Save The World? (Rhino/Capitol) debuted in October 1987. She has worked with Patti Smith guitarist Lenny Kaye on several albums. Berryhill coined the name Antifolk which she and her friends, including Beck, called their disenfranchised music on the lower east side of Manhattan, and the name/genre continues on with young artists coming out of Europe today. Yes, you did see her and her son (by late husband Crawdaddy Magazine founder, Paul Williams) in that CoveredCalifornia commercial. She about to release her 7th album, in 2016.

Darius Degher is a singer-songwriter and guitarist. His sixth album Eleven Story Strum was released last May. He has performed at many of the USA’s most venerable rock and folk music venues, opening shows for numerous national acts. Darius’ lyric-centered songs and videos have aired on radio and MTV, even on a San Diego Homegrown album in the 1980s, and his 2012 CD The Coyote Cantos was nominated for a San Diego Music Award. He also played sitar on Warren Zevon’s “Bad Karma.” Darius is also a poet; poems from his 2014 collection To See the Sound have been published in magazines in both the U.S. and U.K.

Encinitas’ Teen Songwriting Phenoms…

Cordelia Degher, Kennady Tracy, and Lizzie Waters @ Encinitas Library

Songwriting is a complicated art at any age, but fully realized fifteen year-old singer-songwriters are a rare thing indeed. Let alone three of them, all girls, at the same high school. But that’s the case at San Dieguito Academy right now. Must be something in the water – somehow there are three amazing teens who write, sing, and perform their own heartfelt songs.


Adults – $12

Students – $5


Originally from Sweden, Cordelia Degher took up guitar at five and songwriting at ten; now she’s an accomplished singer-songwriter with a deep catalogue. Her debut EP Open Up to Me was just released and features back-up from top L.A. and San Diego musical figures. She took 2nd place in the 2015 Conscious Music Young Voices songwriting competition, won SDA’s 2014 Battle of the Bands, and as a fifth grader was a national winner in the Reflections Arts Contest. She’s performed at La Paloma Theater, San Diego House of Blues, and the Long Beach Convention Center, among other venues.


Kennady Tracy is a blossoming musical artist from Encinitas. Her original songs are catchy and filled with lyrics far beyond her years. She has been performing for four years and in that short time has played in San Diego, L.A., Seattle, and New York City. She has shared the stage with Switchfoot, Janelle Monae, and even Michelle Obama. Her acoustic EP Collection was released in 2014.


Lizzie Waters is an Encinitas talent. She has played the piano for three years, the guitar for one, and has been singing and writing melodies from a very young age. She has now written over twenty-five original songs. In 2014 she took second place in the SDA Talent Show.
