    Carmen Quill is a double bassist, composer, and singer based in Brooklyn, NY. Her debut solo recording, Don’t Get Comfy / Nowhere(2020), “thrives on the meeting of reservation and vulnerability, and its songs feel as emotional and virtuosic as a power ballad yet are sparse and withholding as a Rembrandt” (Pitchfork). In addition to producing and performing her solo music she performs and releases music as part of the bands tilt, Scree, and a host of other projects and collaborations. During this performance, Carmen will be joined by Kristina Teuschler, Isabel Crespo Pardo, and Mike Gebhart.

Don’t be late.

    Caroline Says • Ezra Feinberg • Gabriel Birnbaum Jul 19

    7:30 Dooors 8:00 Music $15.00 suggested donation

    Wilder Maker frontman Gabriel Birnbaum (Mutual Benefit, Katie Von Schleicher) cuts straight to the spiritual essence of the characters he inhabits. The lush and psychedelic folk-rock songs on his new album Patron Saint of Tireless Losers highlight a mature narrative voice and a consistently surprising musical syntax. As much as anything he has put into the world, it’s a tour de force that thrives on both self-assuredness and restlessness–marks of a crucial and constantly evolving artist whose work it’s impossible to turn away from once you tap into its frequency.

    Maya de Vitry has earned accolades from Rolling Stone Country, NPR Music, and No Depression and has attracted an organic and devoted following on the strength of her recordings and her live performances. She sings with a magnetic and hard won sense of purpose that has landed her support tours in North America and Europe for artists like The Wood Brothers and Aoife O’Donovan.. Her songwriting appears on albums by Molly Tuttle, Lindsay Lou and Bronwyn Keith Hynes, Her versatility as a multi instrumentalist and harmony singer has enriched numerous Nashville projects. Despite her seemingly vigorous creative pace, the recording process for her new album The Only Moment was unhurried. The resulting album is a refreshing testament to the generative simmering that underpins periods of reinvention and growth.
