For some, music is a calling. But singer/songwriter Shana Morrison, daughter of iconic singer and composer Van Morrison, was simply born into it. “Everybody in my family was into music, so it was just a natural thing,” Morrison says. “I was a portable kid and went with [Van] wherever he went. I was at shows my entire life from the time I was a toddler.”

Morrison, who grew up in Marin County and Los Angeles, has called Marin home for more than 20 years. She will be performing with her band, Caledonia (also her middle name) on Valentine’s Day at Sweetwater in Mill Valley, a show that she says will include many love songs, of course, and even some penned by her father. “Nobody writes better love songs than Van,” she says.

Morrison’s mother was a backup singer and lyricist, and her grandparents moved from Ireland to Marin in the ’70s and opened Caledonia Records in Fairfax—fulfilling one of their longtime dreams. Her grandmother, also a singer, taught her many traditional Irish songs.

Although music was always prominent in her life, Morrison initially wanted to be a dancer. She even went to business school, because being exposed to life in the arts made her keenly aware of the difficulties and pitfalls. “I thought it was a very unstable life and my dream was to have a job where you would get a paycheck every Friday and you would know how much you were going to make,” she says with a laugh.

Morrison describes her musical style as an eclectic mix. “I like country, I like blues, R&B, soul music, pop music, rock music,” she says, adding that she enjoys incorporating all of those styles into her shows.

Splitting her time between writing, performing and teaching Pilates, Morrison is penning songs for her upcoming CD, which will be mostly a blues album.

“We have a lot of people who have met at our shows and gotten married, and then we play at their weddings and they come to the shows for their ‘Shana-versaries.’ It’s really cute.”

Shana Morrison and Caledonia, Tuesday, Feb. 14, Sweetwater Music Hall, 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley; 8pm; $20-$25; 415/388.3850.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
