Liv Lombardi - Based out of the Chicago area, singer songwriter Liv Lombardi continues to build her dedicated fan-base with her soulful, androgynous and sultry vocals through her radically honest stylings. Her ever-growing body of work invites listeners to engage in an intimate, vulnerable and empowering story of life lived with an open heart. Liv has been favorably compared to the likes of Tracy Chapman, Chris Pureka, Melissa Etheridge, Ray LaMontagne and Patty Griffin. Liv has played at notable venues such as Pianos (NYC), The Bitter End (NYC), The Bowery Electric (NYC), The Saint (NJ) as well as appearing at SXSW. She has opened for national, independent touring artists such as Jonah Tolchin, The Sun Parade, God-Des & She, Samantha Crain and Pinegrove. The Freedom Girl tour will continue through 2018 across the US and select European cities with a fourth studio album to be released in late 2018.

The Dirty Nines are an Alt-Rock group based out of Chicago that utilizes vocal harmonies, driving rhythms, and emotive melodies to entertain the listener.

Price: by donation

Cover optional // by donation, or just bring yourself! KID FRIENDLY EVENT.

A unique event designed to enlist the talents of our communities in the creation of NOA, a visual concept album about love and loss, and the transformative power of human vulnerability, with Taylor Rogers and Pictureluck media. In short, this project utilizes spoken word, dance, storytelling, and heavy handed metaphors about ocean tides to explore human depths. Our hope is that this evening will provide folks a first-hand experience of what NOA is all about.

As we prepare to release our kickstarter campaign, we want to bring the project's major concepts into a real space, engaging attendies in different forms of improvised expression. We will explore our inner worlds through writing, movement, and group vocals. We have some amazing facilitators lined up who are passionate and experienced in their own art to help us uncover some new layers. And these amazing individuals will also be contributing their talent by way of short performances following each workshop. At our Chicago-based event, we will have the opportunity to see some of the top circus performers in the city (and world!) do their thing to live music of Taylor's. It's going to be DOPE, AND, their will be both adult and young one's performing, making for a particularly sweet and inspiring eve.

Also, this event is a chance to get famous! Just kidding, but it IS a chance to contribute significantly to the making of NOA. We will be collecting the writings of participants (on a voluntary basis, of course) to be bound into handmade journals that will feature in part of the film, as well as having a few performed as spoken word for the film itself (with the permission of the writers, also of course). Additionally, we will be recording the sound of our voices merging together, which we also hope to use in the film. Anchors away!

Taylor has performed all over the Midwest and in various festivals such as Oberlin FolkFest and BAMFest. Her music is inspired by themes of "connection, of presence, and of embracing the dream-states so necessary to creation" (Beth-Lodge Rigal, WWFaC Greenbook Review). She is currently working on her newest album, a project inspired by heartbreak, as experienced in singular and collective bodies. Through new soundscapes of vocal layering and rhythmic guitar, Taylor hopes to generate spaces and artworlds which open us into ourselves and into each other.

Jennifer Samaniego: dottiband.bandcamp.com

Juniper Samaniego is primarily a vocalist who picked up guitar because you can only sing so many a cappella songs in one set. She dabbles in folk, jazz, r&b, and psych rock. She loves plants, crafts, jokes, and anti-oppression. Rad wanna-be stand-up comic Latina feminista, ya dig?

About the artists:

Taylor Rogers: http://taylorrogersmusic.com/

Taylor Rogers is a folk singer/songwriter out of Chapel Hill, NC. She began performing her own music after graduating from Oberlin College in 2011 where she recorded her first album, 'crossing bridges' as part of a folk duo (Wide Branches). In September 2014 she released "wax and wane" and moved to Chicago where she formed 'Taylor Rogers and the Plaid Shirts' with violinist Sam Sharp (Oberlin), bassist John Nadel (IU), and percussionist Nathan Mark. Taylor has performed all over the Midwest and in various festivals such as Oberlin FolkFest and BAMFest. Her music is inspired by themes of "connection, of presence, and of embracing the dream-states so necessary to creation" (Beth-Lodge Rigal, WWFaC Greenbook Review). She is currently working on her newest album, a project inspired by heartbreak, as experienced in singular and collective bodies. Through new soundscapes of vocal layering and rhythmic guitar, Taylor hopes to generate spaces and artworlds which open us into ourselves and into each other.

Sam Rae Music:
www.samraemusic.com
Song Premiere: http://www.thewildhoneypie.com/sam-rae-shares-its-alright-its-okay-from-upcoming-album-premiere/

Sam Rae captures eyes and ears with an alluring honesty as she blends her improvisational performance past with midwestern folk roots, and a curious soul-filled ...voice.

In 2014 Sam Rae accompanied Brandi Carlile on an un-amplified acoustic 'Pin Drop Tour' around the United States and abroad and most recently toured nationally with the illustrious folk singer Gregory Alan Isakov, releasing his latest album with the Colorado Symphony. Her ever-changing style as a solo artist, that blends looped cello, guitar and vocals, was largely defined by a 6 week national tour completed last spring, 2016.

Although she collaborates with a diverse array of artists, ranging from Brandi Carlile, Gregory Alan Isakov to the american power pop group, the Posies, her roots are in her creative blend of instruments that represent an eclectic soul-filled folk. Sam Rae uses her experience as a live & improvisational looping cellist to tap into a fresh terrain of eclectic folk arrangement, exploring her instruments as a way to interact with her audience through shared human experience and unhinged impulse.

Sharkk Heartt:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_A3wjTrmDM

Shark Heart is the new electronic project from folk/pop songwriter Lara Ruggles, incorporating vocal loops & samples to create lush, slowly-building soundscapes that surround understated anthemic hooks. Shark Heart celebrates play, inclusiveness, vulnerability, raw emotionality, and fierce-hearted activism.

Before moving back to her hometown, writing a collection of new songs, and re-emerging as Shark Heart, Ruggles released "Out of an Eggshell" and "Cynics & Saints", completed a dozen US tours, recorded a Daytrotter session, and won the Colorado Creative Industries Career Advancement Award. As Shark Heart, her music invites listeners to join in sharing deeply and eradicating inequality. These are songs for hopeless romantics - with teeth.

Taylor Rogers:
http://taylorrogersmusic.com/

Taylor Rogers is a folk singer/songwriter out of Chapel Hill, NC. Her second album "wax and wane" was released in September 2014 and features ten intricately arranged acoustic tracks that explore the waxing and waning of this ever-moving human experience. Taylor began performing her own music after graduating from Oberlin College in 2011 where she recorded her first album, 'crossing bridges' as part of a folk duo (Wide Branches). In September of 2014 she moved to Chicago where she formed 'Taylor Rogers and the Plaid Shirts.' The group consists of violinist Sam Sharp (Oberlin), bassist John Nadel (IU), and percussionist Nathan Mark. Taylor has performed all over the Midwest and in various festivals such as Oberlin FolkFest and BAMFest. Her music is inspired by themes of "connection, of presence, and of embracing the dream-states so necessary to creation (Beth-Lodge Rigal, WWFaC Greenbook Review)". She is currently working on her third album, 'the swell, the shatter', which features new soundscapes of vocal layering with rhythmic guitar.
