After a busy year spent scoring the indie feature film Hello Lonesome, recording a new album and sharing stages with such notable acts as Ben Kweller, Brett Dennen, Grace Potter, Deertick and Manchester Orchestra, Jones Street Station returns with a new song, "The Understanding."
Known for their unique take on traditional Americana, the band expands their sound on "The Understanding," incorporating horn-playing and arrangements by CJ Camerieri (The National, Sufjan Stevens and David Byrne).
"Of all the bands Brooklyn has produced in recent years, rarely has the borough birthed an Americana-rock love child like Jones Street Station. But this isn't just Appalachia-on-the-Hudson—the band is just as fond of rockstar timbres and synths as it is mandolin, banjo licks and harmonica. We're not the first to liken them to a little band called Wilco, and we'd humbly submit the folk/pop stylings of The Avett Brothers and the jamboree ethos of Akron/Family for comparison as well."
Sonya Kitchell is “a seasoned musician: poised, nuanced, and completely in control of her voice and her songs.” (Boston Globe) The 22-year-old singer songwriter’s life has been in constant whirlwind mode since the release of her critically acclaimed 2006 breakthrough Words Came Back To Me. While she’s performed with everyone from Angelique Kidjo and Ben Harper to Jamie Cullum, India.Arie, Los Lonely Boys and Madeleine Peyroux, her career picked up international steam when jazz legend Herbie Hancock tapped her to tour the world with him in 2007. Slowing down after an exhilarating year on the road with Hancock and later The Slip, Kitchell found a much needed quieter place to write and record the six songs on Convict Of Conviction, her recent 6-track EP debut for 429 Records. We are thrilled to present her at 92YTribeca for an intimate solo performance.
