Leaders of Weekly Gatherings
Vanessa Lively is Home Street Music's founder, as well as a singer/songwriter, visual artist, graphic designer, and mother. Her eclectic — and often bilingual Spanish-English — music captures her activist heart and her spirit of unbreakable joy. The Austin Chronicle described her sound as "folk music on fire with worldly rhythms and a Latin pulse.” Her most recent album "Truth Is" has been listed as a #1 New Release by Kansas Public Radio, and #13 on the FAI Folk Radio charts.
Johann Wagner is a songwriter, recording artist and touring musician living in Austin, TX. He founded and runs an annual songwriting retreat called Crooked Crow. He was dubbed a “number one best bet” by the Austin American-Statesman. He was the 2014 Austin Chronicle's pick for best Local Singer Songwriter. When he is not entertaining listening audiences, he can be found on a dancefloor teaching the Two-Step and other dances.
