    ruby is a Brooklyn-based free-folk duo made up of violinist/composer/singer abby swidler and singer/composer kim mayo. Brought together by friendship, a shared passion for collaboration, a deep love for lyric-writing, and an experimental approach to the composing and recording process, ruby was officially born when abby and kim challenged each other to fully write and arrange one song each day for a week, which culminated in creating a piece collaboratively on their last day. Through this process, in getting to peek so intimately into each other’s songwriting instincts, and in turning their own and each others’ songs over in their hands like the stone they’re named for, they realized that their musical sensibilities complemented each other, and that they wanted to keep exploring songwriting together. 

    Their week of writing every day together birthed the seed for a collection of songs that they are preparing for their first recording, which they plan to release early 2020

    Jesse in Grey sings songs that ruminate on lost time, alternate endings, and the internal dialogue of a truly bored midwesterner.

    DPCD is the work of Illinois musician Alec Watson. Embracing the American song tradition with quiet intensity, the music contains warm repetitions on family, daily routine, and memory.  DPCD released their first album, “Good Visions,” in 2017.  Their second album, “False Virtue,” was released October 4, 2019.

    Lina Tullgren is a Queens guitar player, singer and writer . They make songs with 4 releases of varying sizes out in the world to date: an EP of sparse solo music, 2 full lengths of rock band music and a 7" of electronic pop songs written with friend and collaborator NTHNL . It's music that feels simultaneously gigantic and miniscule, quiet and loud; these songs are small attempts to understand the chaos of existence, to quiet the constant buzz in ones head .

    JEAN ROHE

    A sure-footed singer-songwriter,” in the words of The New York Times, Jean Rohe writes one-of-a-kind narrative songs, concerned as much with the internal world as with the external. She is perhaps best known for her aspirational alternative national anthem, Arise! Arise!, which has now been performed by countless artists and choirs across the country. Her latest record, Sisterly, is a collection of songs about communication and its failures, and tackles topics from love, lust, and longing to prisons, police violence, migration, and home. It was the recipient of the 2019 Independent Music Award for best adult contemporary album. She is currently at work on a new record, Wait & See, with Robinson & Rohe, her songwriting duo with Liam Robinson. She is an artist with the Lullaby Project and teaches songwriting in the Future Music Project at Carnegie Hall. www.jeanrohe.com

    Estar Cohen - Endings

    Sarah Elizabeth Charles (vocalist) first began writing music to Maya Angelou's poetry in 2016 after being commissioned to write a new work by The Catskill Jazz Factory. Angelou’s writing, performing and identity as a prolific artist has had an influence on Charles since she was very young and continues to have an effect on her today. This musical work has developed overtime and now exists as an opportunity for Charles and her collaborator in performance, Jordan Peters (guitarist), to delve into Angelou’s creative world and to combine it with their own. Historically, Angelou’s poetry has been under celebrated and not widely regarded or known. With this project, Charles utilizes her multi-faceted identity as a musician rooted in jazz, folklore, hymns, soul and blues to celebrate Angelou’s imaginative, profound and historically relevant poetry in an explorative creative space.   

     

    Estar Cohen Quintet 

    Estar Cohen - Voice, Alex Levine - Guitar, Lex Korten - Piano, Ben Rolston - Bass, Lesley Mok - Drums

    Estar Cohen is an award-winning vocalist, lyricist, composer, and educator from Toledo, OH and currently based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her ensemble is dedicated to performing original music that reflects an exploration in poetry, composition, and the deep curiosity of the stories that define us. Cohen’s sound as a composer is rooted in thoughtful songwriting and spirited improvisation, highlighting the unique voices in each project’s configuration.

    In 2018, Cohen received the ASCAP Foundation’s Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award for her piece, “Endings,” and was invited to lead her band at the Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, Rhode Island. Cohen has continued to build momentum with an array of performances, releases, and honorable distinctions; opening for the legendary Sheila Jordan as an up and coming artist on the acclaimed Vocal Mania series in NYC, receiving honorable mentions in the 2019 and 2020 New York Youth Symphony Series for her pieces, "Only Once," and “For Tad,” being selected to present at the 2019 International Symposium of Jazz Arrangers and Composers in Colorado, and receiving press from outlets including NextBop and ASCAP, among others.
