Katy Lueck a.k.a. LUECK is an emerging artist based in New York City. Heavily influenced by folk and rock of the 1970s–an era she came to love through pillaging her father’s vinyl collection–her music seamlessly blends her taste for nostalgia with the sound of the now. Her songs eschew standard pop form in favor of a more poetic stream of consciousness, energized by the pursuit of honest expression. With guitar that evokes longing and movement, her soulful voice floats above and below, drawing the listener into her calm force. A world traveler and award-winning filmmaker, Lueck has a passion for collaboration and will be joined onstage by a rotation of local musicians. With both her music and her films she hopes to suspend a moment for her audience to live in, whatever that truth of existence might be.
Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Elle Winston’s sound is a modern nod to the work of James Taylor and Anita Baker, while also drawing upon contemporary influences such as Lianne La Havas and Laura Mvula. Her music is a deep mixture of jazz inspired soul, with hints of blues/rock and spirited American roots music. She has opened for a wide range of artists including Gil-Scott Heron, Joan Jett, Carl Thomas, Bridget Kelly, Booker T. Jones, Chris Turner and more. Most recently Elle has been featured at the Billboard Lounge at Barclays Center, the Apollo Music Cafe, City Winery NYC and on Apple Beats 1 Radio. Her forthcoming debut album,”The Buy Back”, set to release this spring, is an exploration of identity, empowerment and vulnerability through the lens of her life in Bed-Stuy, where she lives with her wife.
Emily Elbert weaves together a rhythmic funk-folk blend of introspection and celebration. With a global, D.I.Y. spirit, she has carried her music around the world, playing over a thousand independent shows from Peru to Palestine. Anchored by intricate guitar work and an old-soul voice, Emily’s songs offer progressive perspective while paying tribute to the timeless. She has independently released four albums, and two new singles, “Letting Go / Here & Now”, in November 2016.
Recently, Emily spent a year touring as a member of Esperanza Spalding’s experimental music and theater project, “Emily’s D+Evolution”. The group recorded an album to wide critical acclaim, and played shows ranging from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to the Sydney Opera House.
Solo, Emily has had the honor of opening for acts including Leon Russell, G. Love & Special Sauce, Richie Havens, Emily King, Victor Wooten, and Kaki King, and collaborated with artists ranging from Ben Taylor to Dweezil Zappa. Her music has garnered praise from publications like the Washington Post, Utne Reader, and Glamour Magazine, and won awards in the U.S. and U.K.. Through authentic song sharing, she strives for a deepening sense of human and spiritual connection that is accessible to all.
