Lula Wiles

October 24, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Folk All Y’all Listening Room at 11 W. Huling, 11 W Huling Ave
Memphis, TN 38103 United States
+ Google Map

There’s something a little magic about these three. All Berklee-trained, Ellie Buckland (vocals/guitar/fiddle), Isa Burke (vocals/guitar/fiddle), and Mali Obomsawin (vocals/bass) take turns leading and lighting up their swaddle-tight harmonies and lucid instrumentation. Their songs are clearly evocative of deep folk tradition, but with youthful irreverence and innovation. Hearing them doesn’t sound like a retread – it’s a rebirth. LULA WILES SOUND GREAT! HOW CAN I HEAR THEM? The show will be Wednesday, October 24th with doors opening at 7pm and music starting at 7:30. All tickets are…

Kyshona Armstrong started out enabling others to enjoy the healing properties of songwriting, and keeping her thoughts to herself; as a music therapist to incarcerated and institutionalized adults and school children with emotional behavior disorders, artistic considerations aren't even on the table. When describing the positions she held during her decade or so in the mental health field, she punctuates each chapter with the same phrase: "That got kinda heavy." The weight of it was what eventually moved her to begin…

Most of you probably heard of Rebecca Loebe for the first time when she melted faces with her cover of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” for her blind audition on The Voice, but that wasn’t actually my first introduction to her. When I saw Becca’s name scroll across the screen, my first reaction was, “Hey! That’s Raina’s friend!” And then 90 seconds later, I proceeded to scoop my melted face off the floor. Because I knew she was good, but damn, there’s nothing quite like…
