Join us for a splendiferous night of lovely, lovely music & festivity***
Seattle-based musician Shenandoah Davis is thrilled to announce her third full-length record, Souvenirs, out September 8th on Plume Records. Davis has spent the last decade releasing music and touring the globe, gaining acclaim from fans and fellow musicians for her unique, piano-driven orchestral pop. Recorded and produced in a Brooklyn apartment, Souvenirs finds Davis going back through past relationships and personal experiences, picking out “moments both significant and insignificant that had gotten stuck in my head for one reason or another.”
There is always a hint of menace and reservoirs of force haunting the corners of Eliza Rickman’s voice, whatever register it occupies. Her presence on stage- whether she wears flowers in her hair, or stuffed birds; whether she plays a toy piano or a grand piano- is an enveloping, soft darkness, impossible to ignore. It has been three years between Rickman’s first album, O, You Sinners, and her newest effort, Footnotes for the Spring. In those intervening three years, Rickman added the autoharp to her repertoire, fought illness and heartbreak (and won), and turned 30. But mostly, she toured. She is a frequent featured musical act for the live rendition of the popular podcast Welcome to Night Vale, she joined the band Rasputina for a handful of dates, and she organized her own successful solo European tour.
Toucan is a rather unique Post Wave band fronted by singer and performance artist Courtney Conrad Garvin. Courtney began pursing her musical aspirations at age seven playing the flute.
Toucan’s sound is playful and dreamy, she exudes vulnerability with high confidence. In a recent interview Courtney said “her approach to music is untrained and abstract. She likes to play on the black keys”. Toucan started off as a solo mission but Courtney is excited to announce she is now working with a band and will be debuting a new live sound this Thursday at HM157. .
In the early 2000’s she performed in Hot Pajamas and Bubonic Plague with
her sister Geneva Jacuzzi who has developed a global cult following.
From 2007 until now, Courtney has been focusing on her visual art & styling for bands Ariel Pink, Puro Instinct, Geneva Jacuzzi & more. She is known for her ‘Glasswear’ projects which you can find knocked off on the fashion runways.
Musically & visually Courtney will take you to the cosmos with her angelic voice & flute playing.
