About the Artist:

Shelley Hirsch:
“A woman of a thousand voices… She offered an enthralling demonstration of the way songs, vocal styles and language might have evolved out of more primal musical impulses. (Stephen Holden, New York Times)

The Hands Free:
Described as “a beautifully eclectic mix of sounds that depict an immense variety of places and emotions—all while maintaining the warmth and spontaneity of an impromptu jam session.” -Second Inversion

Akropolis Reed Quintet:
Hailed by Fanfare Magazine for their “imagination, infallible musicality, and huge vitality”.

Christian Euman: 
One of the “six drummers you should know about”. - Revive Music
