“Vintage effects, aural soundscapes, looped melodies, and a ravishing voice all contribute to Lily Taylor’s dynamic solo performances. Taylor’s uniquely structured songs play out with an arresting passion and a sublime spirit.” (-CHARLIE SWANSON Noise Pop SF)
Performing his original composition: "ELEMENTAL MELODIES"
". . . a piano piece that encompasses 2016. This music is kind of like you're reaching for a light in the heavens, but never quite getting there. It's the first time I have pulled all of my influences together and created something very cohesive. The polyrhthmic pulses stem from my West African drum & dance studies, the melodic movement comes from the incredible Icelandic composers that I've been listening to since childhood. Written in a minimalistic style, the music is all about the cylclitic progressions of our experience. It's a very personal work of music that I am very excited to perform." (-Drew Chapa)
& Sarah Ruth

"Through spare, classical-informed arrangements recalling the ambiance of Erik Satie, Nick Cave, Swans, or Julianna Barwick, Sarah Ruth harnesses the power and stark beauty of the natural world around her to weave a distinctive sound and narrative at turns haunting, poetic, and autobiographical. . . . it’s her voice that never ceases to command the spotlight. Operatic in its trenchant emotional pull-pristine, crystalline, penetrating, soaring-Sarah Ruth’s vocal gymnastics are mesmerizing." (-bio by Cole Garner Hill)
