Blurring the lines between genres, Emily Wells is a New York-based musician who channels hip-hop, synth rock, pop and even classical music. Her songs are at once sentimental, hypnotizing and electrifying. Though she’s been dubbed a hybrid of Nina Simone, Biggie Smalls and Bob Dylan, on stage Wells offers her own uniquely impressive one-woman show, playing a number of instruments and looping them live throughout her entire set. Here she performs a brand new song called “Come To Me.”
Shenandoah and the Night is a dreamy indie-pop group from New York City. Led by sultry vocalist Sheah Ableman (formerly of San Francisco’s Yard Dogs Road Show), the band sometimes incorporates Doo-wop and folk into their music, channeling the sounds of Nina Simone, Janis Joplin and The Black Keys. Ableman is an especially captivating frontwoman, full of endless flair and personality. Here, the group performs at the bar Brooklyn Social in Carroll Gardens.
