    Madeline Reddel • Miwa Gemini • Seaside Pumpkins Mar 3

    7:00 Door 7:30 Show $12 suggested donation

     

    Madeline Reddel is a folk/jazz singer-songwriter based in Omaha, Nebraska. She has performed across the midwest showcasing her original music and jazz standards since 2018. This is her first mini-tour outside of her home-state performing in New York City, Montreal, and Toronto.

    Miwa Gemini is a Japanese born singer/songwriter who now happily calls Brooklyn home.  She has appeared in theatre productions as well as film productions and performs regularly in NYC. One of her favorite projects to date is collaborating with Steve Buscemi on his web series called Park Bench where she wrote the theme song and appeared as the house band leader.  Her dream is to advocate for all dreams through her songs.  She believes even lost and forgotten dreams have an important place in all of our lives. 

    Seaside Pumpkins are a folk pop duo consisting of Jannek Zechner & Natalie Mack. These melody makers draw you into their world with songs that tell stories straight from the heart and conjure sweet landscapes akin to their name . What began as a series of musical prompts sent back and forth against the backdrop of the pandemic, turned into a musical collaboration that stretched over the course of many months in isolation. With both members tucked away near natural wonders- Natalie in Niagara Falls, and Jannek in Newport Beach- the pair experimented with sounds and sentiments coming from feelings of love and longing, gratitude and uncertainty, playfulness and lessons learned. Seaside Pumpkins invite you into their warm realm of song.

    Emma Frank • Lake St.Daniel • TBA Mar 8

    7:30 Door 8:00 Show $12 suggested donation

    Emma Frank is a songwriter and singer living in Brooklyn.  She describes her performances as Folk-Burlesque – no corporeal nudity, but revealing nonetheless.  Are they funny? Are they sad? Are they life-affirming? She sure hopes so.  Emma just recorded her fifth studio album with her incredible band and it’s going to come out soon. 

    Lake Saint Daniel is the project of artist/producer Daniel Radin (Future Teens). Growing up in Massachusetts, his dad would play James Taylor every night while making dinner and Daniel couldn’t stand it. However after years of making emo-influenced power pop with his band Future Teens, Daniel’s inherited love of gentle melodies began to peak through the cracks of his work. This eventually led to Good Things, Lake Saint Daniel’s debut, a record about nostalgia, sentimentality and reckoning with growing older. His new album Small Thoughts will be released March 8th on Hands In Records.

    7:30 Door 8:00 Show $12 suggested donation

    Since 2014, No Lands has been the musical outlet for songwriter and audio engineer Michael Hammond. The debut No Lands album was called “one of the most thrilling headphone experiences of this year” by Tome to the Weather Machine. More recently, Michael has been joined by Molly Kerker, who’s voice and songwriting have pushed the project from the electronic sounds of its earlier days into something more organic and reflective of the natural world.

    Adam Brisbin is a Brooklyn-based guitarist whose collaborators include Buck Meek, Cassandra Jenkins, YouBet, Luke Temple, Jolie Holland, Sam Evian and many others. In 2021 he released his solo record Stable to Fire. ”

    Eamon Fogarty is a composer, songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and audio archivist who was born in the state of New Hampshire. Aquarium Drunkard described his 2019 record Blue Values as “a remarkable piece of art-pop, exhibiting the low slung ease of Tim Buckley’s jazz-rock, the shambolic grace of Beck, the progressive grandeur of Scott Walker, and the mystic yearning of Talk Talk.” His new songs are concerned with the porosity of human categories, and the speed at which language erodes.

    Jess Kerber is a Nashville-based songwriter who hails from just outside New Orleans, LA. She picked up guitar at age 12 and quickly learned the instrument on an atypical path. Heavily inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Susan Tedeschi, she was drawn towards alternate tunings, which led her playing to take on a unique color. Her voice grew to attain a deep purple heaviness, which enchanted her early recordings, all backed by the tasteful intricacy of her guitar playing, melodic and captivating enough to stand on its own. Her self-titled album was released in May of 2022.
     
    Nora Meier is a diehard music fan, a frequent moviegoer, a daughter of two English majors, an Oregonian at heart, a verbal processor, a big reader, and always writing. She was raised on her dad’s curated mixtapes and epic vinyl collection, which cultivated her deep love for the format of The Album and an obsession with Bruce Springsteen. She has a wide range of influences, from Randy Newman to Joni Mitchell and Feist, but her lyricism remains completely true to itself. She lives in Boston, Massachusetts. Her debut album will be released in the spring of 2024.

    Marcellus Hall • Pete Galub • Bold Forbes March 22

    7:30 door 8:00 show $12 suggested donation

    Celebrating their newest LP entitled I WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN Marcellus Hall and his band bring their particular literate, independent, danceable rock to the heart of Brooklyn this Friday 3/22 at the Owl. Years in the making, this album captures the band’s unparalleled chemistry involving one part Everly Brothers, another part Beyonce, and another part Johnny Cash. Hall’s existential lyrical acrobatics are on full display in this latest offering which bookends a legendary 20+ year history of home-spun urban folk-rock. Hall heads to Europe immediately following this show for a month of touring. Catch him now! 

    (preview and order the album here: https://marcellushall.bandcamp.com/album/i-will-never-let-you-down),

    Author Rick Moody says ““Pete Galub is sort of an amalgam of things that are important to the last thirty years of rock and roll. You can hear Television in him, and The Replacements, and The Feelies, and The Clean, and The Individuals, and Freedy Johnston, and Pavement, and the dBs, etc. But his playing is so great and his songs so impassioned, that he transcends the density of influence and becomes totally his own.”  You can hear Pete Galub’s songs and guitar playing in Hal Hartley’s films “Meanwhile” and “My America.”

    Bold Forbes is an acoustic trio based in New York City, made up of Nick Bloom, Reid Jenkins, and David Halpern. Their songs blend the structures of folk and country songwriting with imagistic lyrics and genre-busting arrangements for strings and voice. The New York Times has described their songs as “bouncy and earnest…taking palate-cleansing detours into both lyrical abstraction and dissonant instrumental noise, making for a result that resists cliches as much as it embraces tradition.”

    Miriam Elhajli • Ali Dineen's 'The Loneliness of Either Or' Mar 23

    7:30 Door 8:00 Show $12 suggested donation

     

    Miriam Elhajli is a Venezuelan-Moroccan-American composer and vocalist whose work is influenced strongly by the folkloric musics of South and North America, modern jazz, and contemporary classical music.  A graduate of Berklee College of Music, she currently lives in Brooklyn where she performs (on the side of the road or otherwise), and is a researcher at The Association for Cultural Equity founded by Alan Lomax. 

    Music from The Loneliness of Either Or: A Requiem for Joan of Arc
    written & composed by Ali Dineen
    featuring Amy Carrigan, Eleonore Weill, Benjamin Marcus, Miriam Elhajli, Hannah Sassoon & other surprise guests
    A special performance of the music from The Loneliness of Either Or: A Requiem for Joan of Arc. This piece delves into the multifaceted layers of Joan of Arc’s story as well as the composer’s own life. The story unfolds through a rich tapestry of original music composed for piano, choir, and strings, providing a powerful vehicle for the themes of gender identity, feminism, betrayal, faith, and resilience. Drawing upon the works of scholars such as Sylvia Federici and Leslie Feinberg, as well as the songwriter’s own history, this piece asks us: where do we find hope and faith in a world full of contradictions and false prophets? Where do we turn when our heroes, myths and gods betray us? And what we can learn from the in-between places in our lives?

    Kristina Teuschler • Andy Clausen • Levi Gillis Mar 24

    7:00 Door 7:30 Show $12 suggested donation

    Clarinetist Kristina Teuschler explores a complicated relationship to classical music through her project, “Mock Audition”. Trained in conservatory to perform orchestral music, she has made a career performing in prominent New York ensembles such as the West Point Band, Orchestra of St. Luke’s and International Contemporary Ensemble, as well as in collaborating and recording with many Brooklyn independent artists and bands. As a queer woman with blended identities (Jamaican, Brazilian, Austrian), Kristina has found the need to grapple with the classist and white supremacist structures that uphold Western classical music as ‘high art’ by recontextualizing the music. She creates these sound worlds with manipulated samples, clarinet improvisations with live electronic processing, a satirical DJ set, and song.

    Andy Clausen is a Brooklyn-based trombonist, composer, arranger, and educator. He is a founding member of genre-bending brass quartet The Westerlies, a frequent collaborator with artists including Fleet Foxes, Aoife O’Donovan, Haley Heynderickx, Conrad Tao, Nico Muhly, and Dave Douglas, and a prolific composer for visual media, audio storytelling, and concert music. 2024 marks the debut of Andy’s solo project “Heart of Tones: Solo Trombone at The TANK,” a two-volume set recorded in the profound reverberation of a converted railroad water silo in rural Colorado. More info at: andyclausen.com

    Levi Gillis is a songwriter, saxophonist and producer living in Los Angeles. He is a founding member of The Dip and has collaborated and toured with Wayne Horvitz, Cassandra Jenkins, Robin Holcomb among others. His music is mercurial – weaving together fingerstyle guitar and wild saxophone improvisations, oscillating between popular and experimental worlds. Critics have called his music “fascinating” and full of “focused intensity” (KNKX) “summoning soulful, ear-worming melodies” (Seattle CityArts Magazine). He comes to The Owl in support of his new solo

    EP, Don’t Hide – reuniting with his old musical compatriots Ryan Beckley (guitar), Carmen Quill (bass) and Mike Gebhart (drums).

    7:30 door 8:00 show $12 suggested donation

    Heather Eatman’s songs sparkle with cinematic stories, vivid characters and carefully crafted sonic soundscapes. Originally from East Texas, her distinctive voice and style were recognized by John Prine and his independent record label Oh Boy Records, who helped to launch her career. Her latest album, “Gorgeous Maze,” was released in 2020.

    Guitarist/songwriter Adam Levy has created a remarkable body of work over the past 25 years. He’s been featured on recordings by Norah Jones, Amos Lee, Rosanne Cash, Tracy Chapman, Allen Toussaint, Vulfpeck, and many other artists. He has a dozen original recordings to his credit as a solo artist as well, and has authored several instructional books and video courses. No Depression says of Levy’s The Heart Collector: “It is a great album overflowing with warm and soulful songs that enchant the ears and captivate the heart.”

    Jim Keller  is responsible for the most iconic seven digits of the eighties: “867-5309.” For the last three decades, though, Keller has been a notable music industry mystic — representing Philip Glass, Rufus Wainwright and others; playing gigs in New York and Nashville that draw the best players in town; and recording five well-received solo albums. One of those, By No Means (2021), was the first of three in “The Tres Caminos” trilogy with Mitchell Froom. Soon he’ll release the second record of the trilogy, Daylight, which he willl play tonight with backing by Adam Levy and the Mint Imperials.

    7:00 Door 7:30 Show $12.00 suggested donation

    Long-time friends and collaborators Emily Mann and Wila Frank, known together as Paper Wings, dream up warm, pastoral folk songs suited to wandering through a forest or field, quiet contemplation, and long winding journeys. Furnished with delicate banjo and spellbinding harmonies so close you often can’t tell their voices apart, Frank & Mann deliver dynamic performances emboldened by the strength of their sincere songwriting.

    Jean Rohe writes one-of-a-kind narrative songs, concerned as much with the interior lives of her narrators as with the sociopolitical forces that shape their lives. Her most recent album, “Into the Night,” with her songwriting duo Robinson & Rohe, came out on Righteous Babe this year. Current projects include a new animated single with illustrator Sakshi Jain and a performance memoir 74 Corridor, about her relationship with her father and the New Jersey cities where he lived and died. “Not only does she make astoundingly beautiful music but she is thoughtful, reflective, and courageous.” – No Depression
     
    Lyndsay Stone is an NYC-based singer/songwriter whose love for gut-punching lyricism, intricate fingerpicking, and unusual song structures keep listeners attentive and surprised.

    Ellie MacPhee is a Brooklyn-based violinist and singer-songwriter. She recently released her debut EP, ‘Cardinal Creek,’ which explores themes of growing up in South Carolina, blackberry pie, old love, and strange neighbors. Her writing is inspired by the small tragedies and comedies within our day-to-day lives.

    Angus Watt is a songwriter from the west coast of Canada, currently living in Montréal. In January 2024, he recorded his debut full length album, produced by David Parry (Loving, Alice Phoebe Lou). Tracked live off the floor in 3 days in a barn nestled in the woods of Cedar on Vancouver Island, the songs are aided by musicians Austin Tufts (Braids) and Evan Cheadle.

    On Eliza Edens’ sophomore album We’ll Become the Flowers, she seeks to understand what happens after the end. Whether grappling with heartache or a loved one’s mortality, the Brooklyn-based songwriter reimagines endings not as finite events but as devotional experiences that give way to new beginnings. Edens takes inspiration from folk luminaries such as Nick Drake, Karen Dalton and Elizabeth Cotten, sowing her compositions with introspection born from her own grief.

    Matt Munisteri & Jake Eddy duo • Charlie Burnham & Joanna Sternberg Apr 7

    7:00 Door 7:30 Show $12 suggested donation

    Jake Eddy is a native of West Virginia, a true phenom on most things with strings, but most acclaimed for his staggering bluegrass guitar playing, which has turned heads and propelled him to the top echelon of his craft in only a few short years. Matt Munisteri is a native of Brooklyn New York, ostensibly a jazz guitarist, but with a bluegrass boyhood he wears on his sleeve, and an improvising sense that betrays enough of a checkered musical past to keep ‘em guessing. Matt and Jake first crossed paths in 2023 when they were both teaching at Bryan’s Sutton’s Blue Ridge Guitar Camp, and each thrilled at suddenly finding himself in hot water when first playing together. With chops and passion, Jake and Matt go straight to the deep end of a long tradition of American acoustic guitar duets – one formed of Bluegrass and Stardust in equal measure. 

    Charlie Burnham is descended from a long line of musicians, Apollo, Nero, Stuff Smith, Leroy Jenkins, etc.  He will be joined on this night by fabulous collaborators, playing material Charlie has either written himself or personally stolen from people he admires…should be fun!

    Singer, songwriter, visual artist and multi-instrumentalist Joanna Sternberg released their debut full-length album, Then I Try Some More, on Team Love Records, later picked up on Fat Possum Records.[3][4]. Sternberg went on their first tour opening for Conor Oberst in North America in July 2018.[5]  Sternberg’s second album, I’ve Got Me, was released in 2023, on Fat Possum Records; it was produced by Matt Sweeney.[6]

    7:30 Door 8:00 show $12 suggested donation

    SELBA (Hannah Selin and Concetta Abbate) ties together tentacles of strings and voice as a unified superstructure of sound. Like the radical nature of Pi, they intertwine in intricate shapes but never quite meet between. Violists and vocalists, authors of song, arrangers of sonic resolution and improvisers alike, they are excited to join together in this unique collaboration of live musical performance.

    The soundscape-jazz band known as JOLIE first began in Chicago in 2015 as a spur-of-the-moment home recording session. Over the years, it has taken on vastly different forms, adding and subtracting collaborators for performances in bars, music clubs, and festivals. Now, with all four core members living in NYC, JOLIE has returned to its roots as a tight-knit ensemble committed to exploring surreal sonic spaces through improvisation.
     
    Dan Pierson – keyboards / Paul Bedal – keyboards  /Greg Tuohey – guitar / Mike Harmon – bass /Peter Manheim – drums
     
    Paraphrase (Michael Eaton, Nicki Adams) integrates divergent musical languages in a conversational style, integrating virtuosity, timbre and swing. Using modal and bebop vocabulary as a template, their arrangements draw on Ravel’s piano suites, Bartók’s piano etudes as well as Iranian Khush Rank rhythmic cycles. Their second album, The Transcendental portrays a thoughtful and musical duo rife with originals, imagining still closer integrations of jazz and classical music to come.

    Hour 'Ease The Work' release show with more eaze • Justin Felton + Ryan El-Solh

    7:30 Door 8:00 Show $12 suggested donation
     
    Conceived by composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Michael Cormier-O’Leary (Friendship, 2nd Grade, Dear Life Records) and delivered live by nine musicians in early 2023, Ease the Work is where breathy timbre and cinematic swoon factor meet in communion. Atmosphere and old school melody shake hands. Nice seeing you again. Formed in the flourishing underground of West Philadelphia in the latter half of the 2010s, Hour has fluctuated in size and scope around Cormier-O’Leary’s clear yet open-ended harmonic framework and ambitious ear. Cormier-O’Leary has contributed notably across the landscape of independent music, and Hour is living, breathing, deep listening proof of his community-minded ethos.
     
    more eaze is the project of brooklyn-based sound artist and multi-instrumentalist Mari Maurice. Ranging from ambient pop to deconstructed sound collage, her numerous solo and collaborative releases weave mundane, everyday sounds into adventurous textural compositions. Her music explores themes of intimacy, yearning, and the transformation of abstract feeling into intense living through sound design that moves seamlessly between the banal and the ethereal. She has recently released work with Longform Editions, Leaving Records, Ecstatic, and Orange Milk.

    Joanna Schubert, the Brooklyn-based musician behind Oropendola, creates eclectic alt-pop and winding piano-based singer-songwriter compositions. Her debut full-length album – Waiting for the Sky to Speak, released in March 2023 – is a kaleidoscopic ride partly influenced by Kate Bush, Alice in Wonderland, and deep limbo states. Her music has been called “at the meeting point between arms in the air pop perfection and something altogether more jarring and intriguing”. Joanna also sings and plays with a handful of NYC peers, including Beccs, Nicomo, Stephen Becker, and Samir Langus. She has also been a touring member of Half Waif and Barrie.

    Michael Rocketship is a Brooklyn native who works in a variety of musical settings, as an improvisor/composer and recording engineer/producer. He’s worked with a wide array of artists from Chris Cohen to Kenny Wollesen and enjoys finding himself in surprising musical situations.

    Abe Hollow is the solo songwriting project of Los Angeles-based composer and recording engineer Adam Hirsch. By turns esoteric, serene, cerebral and simple, Abe Hollow songs wrestle with the irresolvable contradictions between having a mind and being alive. adamhirsch.site

    Worldwide Seagull is a songart project brined in humility, solitude, and truth. A take on humanness, in an alternate verse. If you looked closely, you know we both drink fresh water. As an international pop star, she provides care and healing…living off her songs in an abundance of candles… with a high chance of having a hot tub in her apartment one day.

    Elijah Berlow is a Chicago-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist folk musician. Originating from pastoral roots in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, Berlow is a playful story-teller with a narrative style grounded in the traditions of Americana music. As a vocalist, he emanates a sincere warmth through his thoughtful phrasing; and his diligent fingerpicking guitar-style leads steadily through the pulsing catharsis of any song. Berlow creates music that is complex, soulful and in conversation with a rich rhythmic history. His music can currently be found on all streaming platforms including the newly self-released EP “Put Out Fires”(2022).

    Camille Schmidt is a Brooklyn-based songwriter.

    Withe is the musical moniker for Brooklyn based singer/songwriter, Rubén Alvarado. His debut album, There Is Less Sun, is a psychedelic folk, art rock fever dream swirling with visions of sun lessons, whispering willows, and lightning storms that form where they don’t belong…hazy, emotive reflections on love, identity, and riding the winds of change.”

    Nicomo is a shot in the dark parallel park, a hole-in-one-in-a-million, needle in a full-stack flapjack of syrupy vocal lines and buttery fingerpicky guitar. Songs on your shoulder, impressionistic folk and strolling waves, shadows and conversations misunderstood. Nicomo is the songwriting project of Nico Osborne, Brooklyn-based musician and sound artist. Antiquated Future Records calls their first EP Views “An early-morning hangout album meets complex after-dark mood music.” Nicomo is working on an LP now, exploring brighter colors and tighter turns.
