This Sunday Jan. 13 singer/songwriter Naomi Ashley and her Band · Hosted by Uptown Poetry Slam and Green Mill Cocktail Lounge
|Date & Time:||Sun, 01/13/2019 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm|
Naomi Ashley and her band of Chicago music scene veterans, Andon Davis (guitar), Cathie Van Wert (fiddle), Michael Krayniak (bass) & Paul Bivans (drums)
With her cream-and-Kahlua voice, Naomi Ashley is a dazzling performer who brings her songs to startling, vibrant life. The music she makes is intimate, plainspoken and gorgeously sung – drawing on the American folk, blues and country traditions – which surge with all the contradictory impulses of real, imperfect life. She is a 3-time recipient of grants from the Chicago Artist Assistance Program and Illinois Arts Council for her albums 'Trying to Fly' (2013) and 'Another Year or So' (2007). As cross-genre collaborator, Naomi has performed & created original works with writer/spoken word performer David Kodeski, poetry slam founder Marc Smith and visual artist Zsofia Otvos. She is 1/3 of the trio Rainy Day Women and lead singer of the Pretenders tribute band, Real Pretenders.
