A tribute to the Santa Ynez Valley in the form of song is set to debut Aug. 19 when local resident and musician Jonathan Firey unveils his new album "Taste of the Valley," inspired by his life on the Central Coast. 

"I knew early on after relocating my family to the Santa Ynez Valley that something was different and special about this amazing place, and musical inspiration hit within days of moving here," the artist recalled. "So much music has been born over the last few years and 'Taste of the Valley' is a collection of some of my favorite compositions that this Valley has given me."

As a tribute, the singer/songwriter and solo guitarist named his album tracks after various locations found in the Valley where he said memorable moments were captured and a deeper connection to his new hometown was made. Song titles include "San Marcos Pass," "Cachuma Sunrise," "Fig," "Santa Rosa Road" and "The Taverns."
