BROOKLYN HOUSE CONCERT - Elana Low / Sean Kershaw
ven. 1 mars à 01:00
We're invited to Roomful of Sky Music's ongoing House Concert series, featuring two sets of chill acoustic music, right in the comfort of someone's living room! This time around, we're at Chez Gindi (aka Victor Gindi's cozy apartment in the Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn). Complimentary wine & snacks will be served! ____
ACT 1: ELANA LOW "You can call it folk, but this ain't Americana. At once soothing and emotional, Elana's performance is nothing less than cathartic…Her sound draws from something more ancient, and yet is unbound by the forms and structures of traditional folk ballads." —Matthew Gilliam, Eastern Soundboard In 2017, Elana Low bought a used harmonium in Ozone Park, Queens. She wrote her first song the next day and hasn't stopped since. Influenced by Bjork, Joanna Newsom, and Melora Creager, in the past year she has played shows at Sidewalk NYC, Pianos, The Cobra Club, Friends and Lovers, The Topaz, and more. Her performance style "has a trance effect on the audience, inviting comparisons to Nico, Florence Welch, and Joni Mitchell on steroids" (Tony Sokol, Den of Geek) and "the hypnotic harmonium combined with Low's clear, vibrato-free voice create an atmosphere that is quite compelling…The songs sound ancient and modern at the same time, adding to the fascination" (Jeremy Shatan, An Earful of Music). She is currently recording her debut EP, Loam, for Spring 2019 release. https://www.facebook.com/ElanaLow/
ACT 2: SEAN KERSHAW Brooklyn-based music artist Sean Kershaw, whose swaggering, "high-octane honky-tonk" (New York Times) thrills and seduces audiences from New York to L.A. and beyond. Describing his EP, The Aussie Sessions, Sean says: "Audiences that respond to mainstream country music will readily hear the influences of Johnny Cash, jump blues and western swing in the New Jack Ramblers. But it’s the remnants of my background as a punk rocker, and the strange, unexpected tales our songs tell that subvert country purists’ expectations and appeal to an even broader, often younger audience. The new set of songs from The Aussie Sessions brings yet another dimension to our sound." https://www.facebook.com/SeanKershawMusic/
