    Daniel Meron Jul 19

      

     

    Ian Hafiz Turner of Rubycon will be performing a paired down acoustic electric set of original music. His songs invite a playful dance as the span topics ranging from underwater love affairs, to creatures of night, to distopic revolution. Daniel Meron will also join him for some of his set on Piano.

     

    Pianist composer Daniel Meron and his band will play a special show just before going in the studio to record a new album.
    Influenced by jazz, folk and world music, Meron's songs communicate vivid stories and emotions to the listener, and shift between intimate moments and energetic improvisation. Joined by Pablo Menares (bass), Felix Lecaros (drums) and Kéren Or Tayar (voice), Daniel will share the music that will be recorded on the following day.

    Dia Luna, b o t & Blythe Gruda Jul 20

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

    DIA LUNA

    Somewhere between Bjork's visionary expressiveness, Saint Vincent's soulful, quirky pop music, and Joni Mitchell's poetic lyricism, lives the music of DIA LUNA. Her debut EP, Camellia, produced by Tomas Deltoro-Diaz, sifts through her personal mythologies, history and ancestral lineage. Between the deserts of Mexico, the golden hills of California, and the concrete streets of New York City, DIA LUNA pushes and pulls at the roots of the family tree. Camellia explores the possibility of looking backwards and forwards at once, holding the self and the other with equal presence, and finding sovereignty somehow through it all.

     

    Blythe Gruda

    Her voice acts as a puppeteer, casting strings across an audience and capturing auras, making them dance like marionettes.

    Each of her songs lilts and bleeds effortless from one number to the next telling stories of heartbreak, lessons learned, renaissance and reconstruction.

    Effortless melodies combined with a foray of experimental sound and instruments, and the conjuring of every fiber of her physical and spiritual being astral project through the dark universe into the hearts of many through clandestine siren song.

    Max Kennedy Rec Release /Lau Noah /Jake Sherman Jul 27

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

       5/24/2018 - photo by Ben Stas

    Max Kennedy is a musical sorcerer, able to conjure up serene landscapes and scenes of beguiling discordance with his subtle arrangements and delicate, plaintive voice. Carving out a space between folk, jazz, and the avant-garde, his new release, On That Great Selection Day, will seduce you with its homespun, heartfelt glow and blow you away with startling shifts in melody and vocal harmony (the latter courtesy of his partner Anneke Reich– they gel like Gram and Emmylou). It’s an album that defies genre, forging new musical paths with every labyrinthine twist and turn.  On That Great Selection Day is a wondrous and perfectly idiosyncratic tour de force. If you don’t give this one a spin, you’re seriously missing out.
     
    Lau Noah 
    Lau Noah (Spain 1994)is a Brooklyn based storyteller. She has recently found the deepest way to express her tales in the harmonic tapestry that a guitar and a voice, intertwined, create. 
    Through several musical influences and four languages that bring  widely diverse qualities to the music, Noah travels from multi instrumentalist, film scorer, composer to writer, painter and teacher with the endeavor of using Art as a shelter where the colors of the dark and the light naturally reconcile.
     
    Jake Sherman premieres the his one man band.  There will be hihat, there will be bass drum, there will be keybass, there will be piano, there will be singing, there will not be other band members. Sherman honed his sound by playing gospel organ at Baptist churches in Brooklyn, as well as performing and recording as a sideman with such artists as Bilal, Meshell Ndegeoello, Chance the Rapper, Nick Hakim, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, and Benny Sings. Exhibiting a wide scope and endearing humor, Sherman's music is a synthesis of popular and esoteric elements, combining glimmering orchestral spacescapes with lo-fi drum machines, and vintage keyboards.  But make no mistake - this is pop music, cemented as such by Jake's lyrical charm and strong penchant for melody.

    Kami Maltz & Josh Turner play Joni Sept 7

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

    Singer-songwriter Kami Maltz and fingerstyle guitarist Josh Turner join forces on stage for the first time in an homage to the great Joni Mitchell. They got the idea after their rendition of Mitchell's "Carey" amassed over 50,000 views on YouTube in just a few months, and have since been working together to meticulously create the sound of Joni's earlier work while bringing their own fresh perspectives to it.

    Robinson & Rohe Sept 14

    7:30 doors /8pm $10 Donation Suggested

     

    Jean Rohe and Liam Robinson met a decade ago through their love of participatory music-making and American folk song. Their cowritten songs are inspired by the traditions they hold dear and shine with elegant vocal harmonies and detailed arrangements for guitar, banjo, and accordion.

    Whether in small clubs or on festival stages, Robinson & Rohe’s performances are intimate gatherings in which listeners are invited to share in the music-making.  Acclaimed songwriters and performers in their own rights, Jean and Liam bring with them a  wealth of creative experience: Liam was a cast member in the Tony Award-winning play, “Warhorse” and recently music directed the hit Off-Broadway folk opera “Hadestown” by songwriter Anaïs Mitchell. He routinely tours with the Becca Stevens Band. Jean’s songwriting has won accolades from the Independent Music Awards, ASCAP, and the Montreux Jazz Festival vocal contest. This year, her song “National Anthem: Arise! Arise!” was published in the latest edition of the popular songbook Rise Up Singing and she was a Troubadour finalist at the 2016 Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
