Lena Ruth is a mixed-media artist from New York City. Having grown up with a classical bassoonist father and jazz singer aunt, she was raised surrounded by music. After a brief bout of acting, she began to delve into tapestry weaving in college, feverishly weaving tender and emotive tapestries of her aging grandmother. Over the years this exploration of age turned into her own rapid deterioration, and she developed repetitive strain injuries in both of her hands, ceasing to be able to play music, to make art, to do much of anything for over a year. During this time, she began to hone and develop her voice as a songwriter, using her poetic lilting tone and whimsy to express anxiety and perseverance through anatomical pain. By creating wearable art to perform in, she underscores an alternative layer to the text, lifting up imagery and building it into a soft armor. Her debut album produced by Cmntx Records will be released in September.
Jackie Evans is an NYC based musician and theater artist. Her original music features a blend of pop/soul/folk with a touch of musical theater.
