Us! is what happens when three “seeker” singer songwriters join their eclectic talents and musical influences to create a sound that is infectiously harmonic, delicately robust, and full of unexpected twists and turns.
New York based Judy Kass, quickly draws in her audience with soulful vocals, no-nonsense lyrical storytelling and genre-bending exploration of guitar and piano. Her award winning original music blends generous amounts of folk, jazz and blues with songs that cover the full gamut of mood and experience. Judy’s 2014 debut album, Better Things and her recent release, Beyond the Ash and Steel (2016) both received notable airplay, topping Folk and Roots radio charts for months after their release and appearing on the Folk DJ List of Top Albums. https://www.judykass.com
Amy Soucy is a Beacon, NY-based contemporary folk chanteuse who writes evocative songs exploring the kaleidoscope of human experience (dreams, longing, forgiveness and healing) and sings them in a voice that’s been called “powerful,” “comforting,” and “angelic.” In 2016, she was selected for a coveted spot in the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and took home first prize in the CT Folk Songwriting Competition. https://www.amysoucymusic.com
California born Glen Roethel is one-of-a-kind artist, gifted vocalist, dazzlingly musical acoustic guitarist. His rich baritone-tenor, effortless fretting, and vibrant personality light up stages solo and in ensemble with vocal marvels such as Sloan Wainwright and Gathering Time (formerly). An award-winning songwriter, Glen has electrified juried showcases for Folk Alliance, S.M.A.F., Falcon Ridge Folk, Cape May Singer Songwriter with songs that are memoirs, anecdotes, tender love songs, and anthemic calls for unity and empowerment. http://www.glenroethel.com
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Lara Ewen tells stories, most of which are true. The semi-autobiographical nature of her work blends both the real and the imagined, and the musical landscape she navigates dips into country, Americana, and singer/songwriter influences, drawing comparisons to musicians who sometimes get summarily lumped into the folk category, such as Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, and Jonatha Brooke. Her third and most recent album is titled The Wishing Stone Songs, and all her albums are available physically and digitally through Bandcamp and CD Baby, and digitally through iTunes, Spotify, and most online outlets. Visit her online at www.unstrungmusic.com for shows, social links, and more.
