We had a fantastic time playing and socializing at David Lockhart’s event, SUSHI SUNDAY Artist and Filmmaker Social, at Trip in Santa Monica Jan 3, 2016. “Contact” is one of our UFO songs. Special thank you to our amazing guest musicians, Kerry Crutchfield on drums and Trevor Coppola on cello.
It was wonderful to see so many friends and make new ones. We’re very grateful for the privilege of playing music.
We created a limited edition (50 units) pre-release version of our upcoming debut CD. Covers of INXS’ “Beautiful Girl” with guest lead vocals by Natasha‘s sister, Marina, and John Lennon’s “Imagine” are included. The cover songs won’t be on the future official release.

Thank you to Cosmic Truth with Janine Regan-Sinclair and Patti Negri for spinning Earth Air Fire Water on the Mother Earth Healing episode 35. Hearing it on air as I write this. So wonderful to have our environmental message alongside such a wonderful message about our beautiful Earth.
Snowflakes members are proud to lend our talents as part of the house band for Highway To Hollywood, a pilot for a TV talk show. Martin is the MD (musical director). It was great fun to shoot the show. It’s all done in a giant green screen studio at LA Castle Studios. Martin wrote the song. Natasha is on bass. Kerry Crutchfield is on drums. George G. Woo is on keyboards. This group is officially known as Martin Blasick And The Highway To Hollywood Band.
We played an unexpected set at Cork Lounge. It was a thrill to play with Natasha’s sister, Marina, in attendance. We’d just recorded a version of INXS’s “Beautiful Girl” with Marina on lead vocals. We found ourselves really enjoying the music and getting back up on stage.
The very first Snowflakes song available on iTunes has just gone live. It’s a cover of INXS’ Beautiful Girl featuring Marina Babenko on vocals. While we work on our album, we were blessed with a visit from Marina, Natasha’s sister. Marina was practicing the guitar and mentioned Beautiful Girl was a song she’d like to learn. It was a magical evening. The track was done that night and the vocals were tracked the next day. We all had a wonderful experience, and wanted to share that joy. It was an unexpected collaboration that we are glad came to be.

We pulled together a slideshow video for our cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. We played so many great shows last year and have been chipping away at our upcoming album. In the meantime the meaning of this song was speaking to us. We weren’t planning on recording a cover. But the spirit struck and we are pleased to share John Lennon’s prayer for peace and photos from the fun gigs we’ve played.
