Rachel Rynick CD Release w/ Special Guests Jenee Halstead and Eva Walsh

Friday, May 12th, 2017 - 7pm

Growing up in a home full of jazz and later trained as an operatic mezzo-soprano, Rachel Rynick’s road to alternative rock was a winding one, but her unique background has led her to a rich, complex sound, always anchored by her powerful, passionate vocals.

 To celebrate her new release “Where the Light Enters You,” Rachel will be joined onstage by producer and bass player Sean McLaughlin, drummer Mike Levesque, guitarist Zach Bloomstein, keyboard/banjo/mandolin player Chris Bloniarz, and local fiddle player and singer/songwriter Eva Walsh, who will also be kicking off the night with a set of her own wonderful songs.

Jenee Halstead

Her latest release, “Edge of the World,” adds to the indefinable soundscape in which her soft and supple voice floats so exquisitely that the Boston Herald felt it “like sorceress music, rings of smoke through the trees and the bells of Rhymney,” while comparing Jenee’s working relationship with new producer Sean McLaughlin to that of Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois for the way it “embedded a tremendous voice in an otherworldly, shadowy soundscape.”

Spot on. With her gift for wonderfully evocative lyrical imagery, delivered with such a compelling voice, it’s easy to foresee that Jenee’s unfettered songwriting will continue to rise — like those swirling rings of smoke — into the expansive sky, and far beyond the edge of the world.

Eva Walsh

Eva Walsh is a fun-loving folk-pop singer, fiddler and songwriter from Boston who delivers a heartfelt performance of charming original songs and smiles. Equally influenced by a catchy pop song, a jazz standard and an old-time stringband breakdown, her music and her sweet sincerity make her a delightful performer you don't want to miss.
