Music starts at 7pm
Jessye DeSilva (they/them) beams when they sing out a secret. The Boston-based artist weaves tapestries of witch pop and folk rock with their empathetic moral fiber, strengthened by the radical honesty that grounds their buoyant melodies. Rich with resilience and compassion, DeSilva centers their craft around community, reaching out from behind the piano to share their uplifting spirit with listeners. Their newest LP Landscapes forges a path through the triumphant and trembling moments of their life, sun-soaked and vivid like the 70s folk rock that soundtracked their childhood. And even when themes of religious trauma and mental health peek through, DeSilva’s smile remains unshakable. As American Songwriter explains in 2021’s “10 LQBTQ+ Artists You Should Know,” “Pain hangs off their lips, fueling them to greater, more soaring heights.”
Madeline Finn touches on a wide range of sonic directions in her solo work: sparse folk, meditative piano ballads, twangy rock, and string-laced indie. Luckily, the Cleveland-raised singer-songwriter is also the rare vocal talent with the range to handle just about any music she wants to write. She’ll howl and whisper, rage and mourn, croon and conspire—always with breathtaking precision and heart-piercing sincerity. A Top 70 American Idol finalist in 2018, Finn has also fronted two bands (the pop-punk-leaning band Envoi, Americana-tinged trio Whiskey Hollow) and toured throughout New England, the Pacific Northwest, and her adopted hometown of Nashville.
