ABOUT SONYA KITCHELL

After her 2008 album, This Storm, suggested that Pioneer Valley native Sonya Kitchell was forsaking jazz for a more pop-rock approach (and a fine one at that), the singer does a 180-degree turn with her latest recording, Convict of Conviction, a six-song EP of gorgeously rendered chamber pop. Piano has replaced guitar as Kitchell’s own instrument, and a string quartet has replaced a rock band as her backup, forefronting Kitchell’s ever-evolving, insinuating vocals, which now sound incredibly dusky, mature, and confident for someone who still is only twenty-one-years-old. After a year on the road with Herbie Hancock (as part of his Joni Mitchell tribute project) and touring with jam-band trio the Slip, Kitchell returned to Shelburne Falls, MA to write these quiet ballads and torch songs, which connect her jazz origins to progressive classical song. Credit Kitchell with following the lead of her restless muse and capturing her own moment in time.

ABOUT RUSTY BELLE

Rusty Belle is a group of self described “weird” kids from Amherst, MA. taking a new approach on old styles. You’ll hear Americana, rock & roll, blues and folk in their sets, but you’ll never exactly pinpoint it. They provide something different,
yet beautiful as they swagger between raw blues, tiny tangos, country waltzes and backyard symphonies

    Sonya is awesome! Her family is great! Her music is wonderful! Her hometown is beautiful, the IMA put her off to an awesome start. I hope I get to see her in Shelburne. The Rusty Bells are talented young girls, starting at the Green River Fest, they are going to go far!

    Sonya in concert with Rusty Belle is sure to be a great concert, as Memorial Hall is a cozy, intimate, yet very “live” sounding space. Awesome.

    I’ve watched Sonya’s career and artistry develop since she was about 11. She was in the first summer rock program for girls that we ran in 2002 at the Institute for the Musical Arts in Goshen. I AM SO EXCITED that Signature Sounds is bringing this particular show (in which she is working with the string quartet) to the Hilltowns. I have wanted to see it since it first debuted in the City. I’m so happy it is coming to us!
