Garnet Rogers has established himself as one of the major talents of our time. His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humour and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again. Musician, painter and educator Natalia Zukerman grew up in New York City, studied art at Oberlin, started her mural business Off The Wall in San Francisco, began her songwriting career in Boston, and now resides, writes, plays, teaches and paints in Brooklyn, NY. A prolific lyricist and composer, Crys Matthews has found inspiration in her surroundings: from driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains to the compelling and heart-breaking love story of Richard and Mildred Loving. Thoughtful, realistic and emotional, Matthews’ songs speak to the voice of our generation and remind us why music indeed soothes the soul.
