Event description

Description

Nancy Atlas and her band have been dominating the East End Music scene of Long Island for quite some time. Known for her raw, live performances and stellar songwriting Nancy and her band, The Nancy Atlas Project, have opened for almost everyone under the sun. To name a few: Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Buffett, Crosby, Stills and Nash… the list goes on and on. The reason is simple. When people want a solid act to open their show and get the crowd warmed up, they call Nancy and her boys because they know they will deliver. Every time.

Nancy grew up with gypsy blood in Commack, NY. Eager to get the buck out of dodge she spent her entire college years abroad at both Cambridge University in England and Richmond College in London and Florence. She majored in art history, fine art, drinking lots of wine and talking shit. There was a serious recession going on the year she graduated college so instead of becoming a mad advertising executive she walked down to Portabello Road, London, bought a guitar for 60 quid and never looked back. It was pouring buckets of English rain that day so they gave her a black plastic bag to cover her guitar as it didn’t come with a case. Nothing, it is said, can stop true desire.

Nancy now lives in Montauk, New York with her husband Thomas and her two sons, Cash and Levon, and her daughter Tallulah. When she is not writing a song or on stage rocking out, she can be found clamming with her kids, surfing with her kids, walking with her kids, reading with her kids or cartooning for her kids. On rainy days she lazily traces tour maps of Europe with her right hand while sipping her beloved PG Tibs English Tea and smiling out into the East End Mist.

HOPEFULLY FORGIVEN

Hopefully Forgiven - voted 'Best Band in the Hamptons' by Dan's Papers for the past two years - is a high energy, mellow vibin', harmony soaked cocktail of 100 years of American music and spirits. Singer/songwriters Telly Karoussos, and 'Alabama Brad' Penuel (fresh from Nashville) deliver big harmonies and authentic songwriting that transcend the 'americana' genre and has attracted a devoted multi-generational fan base.

The brotherhood that is Hopefully Forgiven began shortly after a chance meeting through an internet post when Brad offered his Brooklyn railroad apartment to Telly in exchange for watching his dog. After sizing each other up and realizing they shared a passion for music and surfing, Brad said "I think this will work. My house is yours-- you can even play my guitar if you want....just don't touch my boots."

Telly didn't and they soon began working up their favorite songs by the Stones, the Band, Van Morrison, etc. Brad even showed him some bluegrass tunes, and the course for Hopefully Forgiven was set.

Hopefully Forgiven's debut EP, Soaked, is now available everywhere.
