Lora-Faye

Brooklyn native Lora-Faye is a singer and multi-instrumentalist whose ghostly howl seems to come from a different time and place altogether. While there is an undeniable political and intellectual bent to the project, the songs themselves run completely on raw and untethered emotion. With a deep understanding of the power in the strange and idiosyncratic in American folk and rock traditions, Lora-Faye draws from such disparate sources as Gillian Welch and Jeff Buckley, Blind Willie Johnson and Anais Mitchell, Harry Smith and Andy Warhol.

In 2012 alone, Lora-Faye's songwriting won her such accolades as the Grand Prize Award at The Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, Hudson Valley Songfest's "Best New Artist," and a winning slot at The New Jersey Folk Festival's Songwriting Competition.

Lora-Faye performs her energetic live show with a constantly evolving
band of New Yorkers: a rotating cast of jazz musicians, untrained
folkies, opera singers, and everything in between.
