Rockwood presents a Pride celebration show featuring some of NY’s top queer artists. EVVAN, RONI, Stefan Alexander, & LEONE will be joining forces to bring the community together in celebratory fashion.
LEONE & Stefan Alexander
Leone is a pop/rock artist from NY. Richie Bee leads this all-out sensory experience with a charismatic stage presence, fusing artful androgyny with a piercing vibrato and heartfelt lyrics, bringing people together through vulnerability and honesty
Stefan Alexander is an independent NYC-based queer pop singer-songwriter. He released his first single “Skeleton” three years ago to critical acclaim and garnered over 1M streams on Spotify. Sadly, Stefan was forced to take a 3 year medical hiatus to diagnose and rehabilitate from a mysterious pain disorder that kept him from performing. However, since the beginning of 2019, he has finally been able to perform and release a steady stream of new music again. Stefan has used his platform to speak honestly about his chronic illness and hopes his story can inspire others to overcome whatever challenges they may be facing in their lives.
RONI & EVVAN
R O N I, a guitarist, singer and a songwriter, was born and raised in Jerusalem. At the age of 20 she moved to New York City where she and her guitar became a mainstay in the Lower East Side music circuit, filling venues for nearly a decade. As she grew her audience, she toured the US and Europe with her music and performed in festivals like SXSW (Austin TX), CMJ (NYC), ‘Yearot Menashe’ (Israel) and ‘Hasifa’ in Jerusalem. In September 2020, Roni released her EP 'Crown', which received raving reviews from magazines & blogs such as Acid Stag, Chicago Haze, Week In Pop and Audio Femme. Her follow up "Afterglow" was released in 2021. Her sound has been described as beautifully unpredictable, unique, visionary and powerfully magnetic. As a musician and guitar player, she has been professionally trained in jazz, blues and rock from an early age. These days, you can find R O N I performing around NYC and working on a new record.
