Double Bill: Jeremiah Birnbaum and Ben Rabb
A Jersey boy with a Southern heart, Jeremiah Birnbaum is a “rootsy, soulful troubadour” (Time Out, London) whose sweet, gritty voice and skillful, effortless guitar work makes you believe every word he sings, whether about sunshine or blood.
Traveling well beyond his home turf, Jeremiah has created music and (mis)adventure along the way, gathering ample fuel for stories told with voice and expressive picking. A dedicated songsmith, Jeremiah writes new tunes weekly, a practice honed through longtime attendance at the storied Jack Hardy Songwriters’ Exchange in New York. http://www.jeremiahbirnbaum.com/
New York-based singer/songwriter Ben Rabb loves to tell a story. Whether it’s true, partially true, or completely false is for the listener to surmise. Fusing organic soul with folk melodies, Rabb’s fluid angst and distinguished passion absorbs audiences from coast to coast. He regularly performs throughout the Northeast – from NYC to Providence, RI, as well as the Midwest- from Omaha, NE to Austin, TX. Additionally, he has performed during an interview while appearing on WCCT-TV in Connecticut, and has received radio play in cities from St. Louis, MO to Charlotte, NC. http://www.benrabb.com
