Audrey Dilling http://kalw.org en Bay Area Beats: Teen musician Tatyana Martinez channels old school sound http://kalw.org/post/bay-area-beats-teen-musician-tatyana-martinez-channels-old-school-sound <p></p><p>Eighteen-year-old Tatyana Martinez turned to writing poetry as a young girl to cope with big changes in her life. Over time, her poetry evolved into music. She now works for the youth run recording studio <a href="http://sunsetyouthservices.org/programs/#UpStarRecords">Upstar Records</a>, inside San Francisco’s <a href="http://sunsetyouthservices.org/">Sunset Youth Services</a>. The youth center supports young people and their families with things like parenting classes, food assistance, and job training at Upstar. When she’s not helping young musicians make music, Martinez writes and records her own songs with the goal of putting out her own album. She shares the story behind her songs in this installment of Bay Area Beats.</p><p> Thu, 17 Jul 2014 02:00:00 +0000 Audrey Dilling 46687 at http://kalw.org Bay Area Beats: Teen musician Tatyana Martinez channels old school sound Who’s using San Francisco WiFi? http://kalw.org/post/who-s-using-san-francisco-wifi <p></p><p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">At the corner of Sanchez and Market, Jason </span>Dorn<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> pulls out an iPhone.
