Singer, guitarist, songwriter. Moving from Fairyland on top of Lookout Mountain, Georgia to New York at the age of 17, she soon became the singer and lyricist for many different bands back in the day on the Lower East Side, including the jazz/hip-hop/metal of Kingstone and was the first lead singer in the psych/blues/improv of Elliot Sharp’s band Terraplane.

Quite a few sites and stations have been swooning about Swoon’s new, just released record “Backwards & Forwards”. This is their first show after the record release, one with all the pressure off of the fine band’s chest, ready to lose themselves in their music. Be prepared for heartfelt, deep pop-rock with an easily accessible big sound and remarkable lyrics.
The Roman Games
Roman Game is a Swiss Troubadour chronicling New York since the Nineties, an observer of everyday life with an eye for the unexpected, a knack for raising questions and taking wrong turns, but finding a way home in the end. He is also the singer in Room, a multinational collective of alternative musicians who find their way to New York every so often. He will bring friends and guests to the stage.
Dying in Motion
Dying in Motion are a Swiss punk band who are touring the U.S. this month. Their stop at the Delancey is an experiment for them, too: The quartet will do without their fifth member, Extreme Loudness, at the Small Beast. In their own words: “We are four friends from Zurich, Switzerland. We play screamo hardcore. We are into DIY. We are here to share the love and passion we put into our music with other nice people.” Let’s find out.
