Celebrating Rockwood Music Hall’s 15-Year Anniversary!
At just under five-feet tall, Manhattan resident Evie Joy plays her set with no shoes on for a more grounded performance. A multi-instrumentalist, Evie uses her ukulele Ed, a keyboard, a bass, multiple percussive instruments (including a banana), and a loop pedal to build vocal/ instrumental arrangements live. Evie studied opera for 12 years but currently plays what she calls “ukulele rap” and has toured all across the globe, from London to Seattle and even on Caribbean Cruise Lines. A recipient of the Johnny Mercer Fellowship, Evie gets the crowd laughing alongside her by adding funny one liners in between verses. “There is a sadness in everything,” she says in regard to her comedy in her music, “but that’s where we should find humor.” Having been recognized by PopDust for writing “a canticle of female empowerment”, one of Evie’s passions is to inspire women to live their truest, most powerful lives, unburdened by social norms.
Born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Morgan Reilly studied voice and piano and spent her time performing with local and regional theater groups starting at the age of 3. From a young age, she knew she was born to perform.
In 2015, she took a leap and moved to New York City to focus on the beginning of her pop music career. Everyone is aware of the tough road ahead, but Morgan continues to persist as she makes her mark in the industry.
You can frequently find her playing gigs at The Duplex in the West Village, Lower East Side’s Rockwood Music Hall, and Kaufman Astoria Studios' very own, "The Astor Room."
Her fans can keep up-to-date with her schedule by following Morgan on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, along with keeping up with the "Shows" page on this website.
Lyncs, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, blends the elements of folk, pop, and indie rock into her own chapter of music. Noted for memorable and connective lyrics, her debut work, “The Safety EP”, was self recorded, performed, and released August of 2018. After touring locally and opening for artists such as Young The Giant, New Vices, and August & Alden, Lyncs recorded and released “If You Just” and “Black Hole” in 2019. WXPN quotes her journey as “Easy-going acoustic tuneage to ethereal electro-pop singer-songwriting.”
Known to her friends and family as Jacqueline Hynes, Lyncs started her career in the red-rose city of Lancaster, PA. She showed interest in music from the age of 6 and began learning everything from piano to upright bass. She landed a spot with the Hershey Symphonic Orchestra in high school and has performed in many cathedrals and theaters such as Carnegie Hall.
At the age of 18, Lyncs started her degree in Music Business Technology at Millersville University having received the Rising Star Award. She released two B-Side singles, the first titled “Rose Coloured Eyes”. “The Moment”, her sophomore single, has been featured on local indie playlists and blogs. Over the next few years, Lyncs evolved from student bass-player, to guitar enthusiast and started writing her own infectious melodies and songs. This led her to start her own project under the artist alias, “Lyncs”, finding what connects us all.
