Shaina Taub Trio (EP Release Show)
The Shaina Taub Trio is the latest project of singer/songwriter Shaina Taub, a Vermont-raised musician honing her unique style of pop brewed with folk and soul Shaina leads the trio on keys, joined by Mike Brun on bass and Jake Cohen on drums, featuring all three on explosive three-part harmonies soaring above their funky, laid-back grooves. Taub just finished at year-long residency at Rockwood Music Hall, and her album, What Otters Do, was released last year, and NPR/WNYC called the record and her live show, 'a playful blend of Billy Joel's piano-driven pop, Aretha's soul and Regina Spektor's whimsy.'

Heather Christian and The Arbonauts
Heather Christian & the Arbornauts is the music-brainchild of Heather Christian, the daughter of a blues musician and a go-go dancer from backwoods Mississippi, and 5 of the most virtuosic boy prodigies she could find. A self proclaimed "Avant-Americana" band, they pull from many American song forms (blues, gospel, honky tonk, zydeco, and folk story spinning) to stomp and screech Miss Christian's dream-hymnal story-songs of heart-ache, time travel, space travel, bubbling, blustering, and good old fashioned feeling good.

Primarily known for her eccentric voice, Miss Christian is part blues musician, part pixie, part old lady and is said to “howl like a werewolf with a voice made of molasses” (Variety Magazine). Heather Christian is a disgruntled classical pianist who has worked in gospel churches, uptown Catholic cathedrals, seedy blues clubs in New Orleans and downtown theaters in NYC. Her music is a melting pot where all these things collide. The Arbornauts' debut album "Cabinet" dropped in February of 2012 to much critical acclaim.
