Round 198 Erika Lundahl, Classic Elisha, Once Around the Sun, poet, painter
November 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$7 – $20
ERICA LUNDAHL: erikalundahl.com/
“..Their live performance locked us in awe with Erika’s beautifully clear voice….Watching her fingers play that 12-string was mesmerizing as she rapidly switched between tapping, drumming and finger picking” – Norm Johnson, host of Concerts in the Woods Series
CLASSIC ELISHA: classicelishamusic.com/
“WHY DO I CREATE? I found my identity in creative expression. Music is within me and I am music. This is how I experience and interpret the world—through sound and rhythm. It is how I “feel” beyond my sense of touch. A long time ago, I discovered the reach and the power of music. No matter what was going on, I could never turn my back on music because music has never turned its back on me. It has always embraced me warmly whether I was standing on a mountain or making my way through a valley. My hope is that my music will heal, comfort, and empower listeners. I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with the community by sharing my art. It is both my passion and my calling. The journey continues!”
ONCE AROUND THE SUN: facebook.com/OnceAroundTheSunBand/
“Sibling singer-songwriter duo Once Around The Sun – comprising musicians Anukriti and Antriksh Kandhari – first dipped their toes into music while singing at their local church in Delhi NCR. Soon after, they began posting covers on Instagram which received plenty of traction and led to them performing at gigs in Hyderabad. While the band went on a hiatus for a couple of years, the Kandharis got back when both siblings moved to the U.S. two years ago. “We decided to pick things up again, but this time, we wanted to solely focus on original music and releasing an EP,” says Anukriti. The pair’s forthcoming EP, which is due to be out later this year, will include songs in both English and Hindi.” -David Britto, Rolling Stone
KAYLA CARRINGTON: kaylacarrington.com/
“Kayla Carrington is a West Coast, U.S based musical artist with an exciting act that includes sax, rap, and dance. Other services include private youth outdoor education.
Kayla’s lyrics playfully & intentionally call on environmental justice, activism, climate change education, and visual art to mobilize today’s youngest generations. Carrington considers Lauryn Hill, Wale, and The Internet among their biggest influences. At age 11, Kayla took to the alto saxophone and within a decade was playing gigs with The Thelonious Monk Institute, touring festivals in France, Spain, and the Netherlands, and recording for the soundtrack of Netflix Original’s “Motown Magic”.
Featuring production from Dru Freeman and Vikki T, Kayla’s first collection titled Environmental Studies EP hit streaming platforms in June 2019, a year after their first poetry book, Each Step In, was published. Together, these two projects capture the essence of what it is like to grow up into a world of known environmental negligence, and what it looks like to spread health & thriving energy through it all.”
