Type: Concerts

For the first time, Margaret Glaspy is presenting a solo acoustic show filled with songs from her past and present. Freshly off the heels of her third full-length album, Echo The Diamond, the music emerged from a deliberate stripping-away of artifice to reveal life for all its harsh truths and ineffable beauty. Like the precious gem of its title, the result was an object of startling luminosity, one capable of cutting through the most elaborately constructed façades. Glaspy will be bringing a reimagination of these songs as well as those of her favorite songwriters to the stage with ‘Margaret Glaspy: Unplugged.’
Originally from Northern California, Glaspy first started writing songs at age 15 and soon began honing the potent balance of sensitivity and incisiveness that now imbues her music. In bringing Echo The Diamond to life, she adhered to a songwriting process meant to preserve and amplify her unfettered expression. Drawing from an eclectic mix of inspirations Sonic Youth, Vivienne Westwood’s punk-influenced approach to fashion, Tom Waits’s music and turn as a jailbird DJ in Jim Jarmusch’s Down By Law, the 1985 Japanese Western film Tampopo - Glaspy’s influences show in her ability to turn a phrase with edge and humanity all in the same gulp.

Artist Website

As an instrumentalist, Ryan Lerman spent his 20s touring the world as bassist for Ben Folds, guitarist for Michael Buble, and string arranger/musical director for John Legend. As a songwriter, his compositions have been recorded by Vulfpeck, Buble, and others. As a scene builder, he's one half of the creative team behind YouTube sensations Scary Pockets and ‘stories’. Lerman's songwriting unrelentingly seeks the impassioned marriage of melody and harmony. Sonically, Lerman is an explorer, never afraid to throw a piano down a flight of stairs, dunk a wurlitzer in a sensory deprivation tank, or turn a guitar into a piece of mallet percussion. In the age of instant gratification, Lerman is not flashy; he's a craftsman.
