Last week Talenthouse HQ (Los Angeles) hosted our partners from the German and London Talenthouse offices for an amazing week filled with conferences, meetings and of course- a party. On Wednesday March 4th, Talenthouse held an epic "Tacos and Tequila" event at the office and invited the community to learn about the incredible opportunities Talenthouse provides to the art community. The sun had already set, the tacos were flowing and people were enjoying the atmosphere with drinks in hand. Dave Stewart brought a personal martini set and stirred himself a martini while watching a beautiful Talenthouse artist named Tiffanie Anderson paint a magnificent mural of Andy Warhol on our interior wall. To say the least, the party went well.

Everyone's ideas were sparking conversations of collaboration, change and opportunities for artists. The energy of the room was buzzing and our Chief Creative Officer/Founder, Amos Pizzey, gathered everyone inside to admire the finished Warhol mural in our office. As we gazed at Warhol, the room came to a silence as Pizzey took the stage with an inspirational speech that filled the room smiles and cheer. And then, Pizzey introduced Dave Stewart who took to the stage.

A little star struck, the crowd gazed at the musical legend. Dave Stewart walked towards the center of the room and gave a brief history of his relationship with Pizzey. Like Talenthouse, with the goal of giving artists an opportunity and voice, Stewart introduced an up and coming musician named "The Lake Poets."

The Lake Poets took out his acoustic guitar quietly with the room anxiously waiting to hear the new artist Stewart has taken under his wing. He strummed his first cord and everyone was instantly captivated not only by his guitar skills, but his voice. Between the speeches, artwork, music and overall vibe, we all felt like we were part of something big, something revolutionary.
Talenthouse HQ was definitely the place to be at that day.
