A musical analogy for baby tigers befriending orangutans, DBV unites a Palestinian-Californian singer (D), and a Minnesotan singing cellist (BV). The pair met at Berklee College of Music around 2016, and together explore styles ranging from folk to motown. The name of the duo was conceived by a 4-year-old audience member in the summer of 2017 on a Boston Harbor Island when he exclaimed, "Mommy, that's a big violin!". Shout out to you, little buddy, wherever you are. Things they both like include: - sad songs - dad jokes - making fun of heteronormativity -writing angry emails
Anna Snow writes and performs her own brand of ambient-folk. Whether through songs about family, the in-between places of love, or hope for loved ones in distress, she combines moody, evocative guitar voicings, vocals, and lyrics to transport the listener to another world. Based out of Somerville, Massachusetts, Anna performs with uncommon passion and sincerity; she feels each note, and every word. She recently released her sophomoric full studio EP, Is This Us, in June, 2018. She will be joined by guitarist, and long time musical partner, Chris Keiffer.
Phil and the Flying Leap re-weaves the tapestry of Western popular song, marrying early jazz, French chanson, Golden-Age musical theater, and bluesy, radio-ready Americana. Songwriter Phil Berman's lyrics usher the Great American Songbook into our hyper/dis-connected 21st century reality, crafting joyfully queer songs to navigate, question, and affirm the human heart in an increasingly absurd digital world.
Folk, guitar, voice. Succulent, sweet, surprises. Bubbles, hula hoops, chalk.
Petite person, booming vocals that can stop fixies in their tracks.
Also, sometimes an 80's sing-a-long song on ukulele thrown in, because we're grown ups and we can do what we want.
Want to hear something? If you request it and I know it? I'll play it.
*Also, though not specifically geared towards kids, people of all ages tend to listen joyfully. I think you'll like it.
Somewhere on the musical map, where the twang of Classic Country meets the grit of Southern Soul, Hank Wonder marks a detour down a sonic stretch of unpaved road. The Boston-based trio of Annie Bartlett (fiddle and viola), Darren Buck (vocals), and Michael Loria (guitar) first came together in 2013, and have since crafted their very own soulful blend of Americana: equal parts down home and gussied up.
