Georgia-born, Brooklyn-based artist Julia Easterlin purls a modern Southern Gothic lament in new works from the album ‘Light of a Strange Day’. Through the language of baroque pop and Appalachian folk music, Easterlin and producer Shahzad Ismaily (Lou Reed, Karla Kihlstedt, Marc Ribot, Sam Amidon, etc.) bring to light a collection of new pieces John Schaefer of NPR Music calls, “at once lovely and unsettling… a striking debut.”
For Carnegie Hill Concerts, Easterlin will be performing a minimalist duo with composer and clarinetist Michael Sachs. The two met as students in Boston and have recently been collaborating in intimate performances featuring themselves, their instruments, and a single light bulb.
