If my above praise has not convinced you, read bios of all these fantastic performers below.
Pauline Pisano has been receiving praise for her profoundly unusual voice from critics and fans alike. An edgy romantic singer/songwriter with an unexpected pop/rock twist,” she has pipes that are rare and impressive with a range that sails easily from the basement to the heavens.” (Debra Donahue, the Cape-May Times). However, it is Pauline’s unique sense of story and melody that have led her to win several national and international songwriting awards including The Father Fame Award, The American Theater Wing’s Rising Stars Award and the honor of being a featured soloist at Alice Tully Hall.
Players include Rich Mercurio, Arthur Sadowsky, Dan Weiner, Jessie Reagen Mann, and Neeley Bridges.
Danica Dora has been a singer-songwriter since she was born. As a child she made recordings on her casio tape box, promising the world she would one day sit atop the throne of musical genius. Today, she is emerging as a infectious new presence on the New York music scene, having played sold-out engagements at Joe’s Pub, the New York Songwriter’s Circle, the Knitting Factory, Rockwood Music Hall and the Laurie Beechman Theatre among others, to critical acclaim. “With a voice like that and great songs to boot, I sense good things on the horizon.” – jezebelmusic.com.
THE REBEL SHIP
The new collaboration between one of New York’s most talent freestyle MC’s-iLLspokinN and Jean Shepherd the leader of the one of NY’s most buzzed about bands-Navegante.
Jean is the Guitarist,Vocalist,Keys, and programmer for Navegante and in this project he will be taking his beat making role one step further by creating beats at the spur of the moment by looping himself playing bass, guitar, vocals, and anything else he can find.
WALKING FOR PENNIES
Walking For Pennies is a new folk rock duo featuring NYC songwriters Neeley Bridges and Andy Jobe.
As her sincere words float among bittersweet melodies, the following for Neeley Bridges continues to gain momentum, compelling some to consider the singer/songwriter to be a guiding voice for a generation of wayward twenty-somethings. Her lyrics chime with a pre-industrial soulfulness, singing of contemporary problems with the charm of simpler times and replacing worries with the solace of heartfelt understanding. The North Carolina native blends her country and bluegrass roots with the folk influenced singer/songwriter movement of the Northeast, building her songs on a foundation of beautiful melodies and vocal harmonies, creating music rich in layers and emotions. The graceful vocals and introspective songsmithing have earned comparisons to Emmylou Harris and early Joan Baez, and while flattered, Bridges is unceasing in the effort to carve a niche of her own.
Happy birthday in advance Pauline!
