Erin Ivey Trio
The Erin Ivey Trio will play a fine acoustic concert on Saturday, April 30th, 2016, at 7:00 PM
Erin Ivey / Band Leader, Writer & Composer and Vocalist. Her last three releases garnered numerous Top 10 and Album of the Year recognitions, along with the Discoveries Songwriting Contest Grand Prize. Erin has performed hundreds of shows around the world in backyards, concert halls, boardrooms, and ships at sea, in a diverse arrangement of solo and band scenarios and as a regular Critics’ Pick at SXSW. In 2014, Erin was selected to represent the Texas Chapter of the Recording Academy at the GRAMMY Festival at Sea, alongside Heart, Emmylou Harris, and Shawn Colvin. Most recently, Erin debuted a new collection of songs at a sold-out performance at The Long Center in Austin, “deeply moving, at times lighthearted, beyond a genre and backed by a subtly fabulous band”
(Jim Caligiuri, Austin Chronicle).
Peter Stopschinski / Piano. Peter is a pianist and composer. From Pulitzer Prize nominated plays to Grammy Award winning albums, Peter's music is heard world-wide in a broad spectrum of media and performance.
Kris Afflerbaugh / Upright Bass. Kris is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and educator. After receiving an electric bass for his 12th birthday, it became Kris' main instrument. He writes and performs in all styles and genres.
“It says a great deal when Austin’s legendary music scene considers you its darling, but such is the case these days for velvet-voiced Erin Ivey”
Award-winning Urban Folk songstress and Texas Music Magazine Artist of the Year, Erin Ivey is “a songwriter of the first order”
with a “rare and deeply affecting voice”
"The queen of Austin singer songwriters."
"So endearing and warm, you want to go back for seconds. Enjoy the deliciousness."
"In the galaxy of Austin songwriting stars, few, if any, have approached Erin Ivey's steady growth, with the results so satisfying, her horizon seems endless."
"Like a more lucid version of Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval, and a less whimsical Harriet Wheeler of The Sundays… Erin Ivey has quietly become one of our city’s biggest critical successes”
"I'd kill for a purr like that."
Doors open at 7:00 and the concert is 8:00 to 10:00.
