NIGHTBIRDS: A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN PERFORMERS?

b-blush
German electronica meets New York pop with b-blush, fronted by German chanteuse-accordionist Cassis. The cacophony of sax, vibraphone, accordion and computerworks creates a mood reminiscent of Bjork meets Nico or Debbie Harry.

LISA J. CORNELIO
Lisa J. Cornelio is a country-singin' Americana cowgirl in the concrete world of NYC. She writes rootsy, earnest, literate songs that contrast with her aggressive guitar-picking skills and is a must-hear for fans of Kim Richey or Shawn Colvin.

DAYNA KURTZ
Singer-songwriter-guitarist Dayna Kurtz disarms audiences with a brutal blend of blues, folk and jazz. After returning from the road opening for Richie Havens, Dayna has also shared the stage with Ani DiFranco, Chris Whitley and Olu Dara.

PROFESSOR & MARYANN
Ken Rockwell plays Professor to Danielle Brancaccio's Maryann, and together they make musical simplicity seem very, very sexy. Danielle's starkly sultry stylings are reminiscent of Rickie Lee Jones and as a duo, they've been called a "Simon & Garfunkel for our age."
