SUNDAY CABARET IN NYC: SINGER/SONGWRITER CAROL LIPNIK RETURNS TO SUNDAY NIGHT SPRING RESIDENCY AT PANGEA
Carol Lipnik, a spellbinding, wistfully-humorous singer and songwriter, will relaunch her Sunday Night Spring Residency at PANGEA (178 Second Avenue, NYC - 212-995-0900) performing every Sunday through June 26th. Lipnik just completed a three week engagement at Joe's Pub at the Public. Lipnik, who blends folk music and art song with the classic nightclub tradition, performs original musical compositions from her latest album "Almost Back To Normal" joined music director and pianist Matt Kanelos. Her Sunday Night Spring Residency is produced by TWEED TheaterWorks (Lypsinka) and DAX MGMT (Weimar New York, Joey Arias). In addition to critical plaudits, she has been praised by her fellow downtown performers as well. Lipnik grew up in Coney Island, NY and studied fine arts at Pratt Institute and The Art Students League. She draws from her visual arts training to create a singular cinematic style rooted in blues, pre-war Berlin cabaret, folk, and more as filtered through her very own carnival and psychedelic sensibilities. She has released six albums on her own Mermaid Alley label and has built a dedicated following through performances at Joe's Pub, Abrons Arts Center, Galapagos Art Space, P.S.122, Barbes, Spiegelworld and many other venues, as well as appearances at the River to River Festival, the Siren Festival, Weimar New York, and the Chapel at Greenwood Cemetery. Carol was awarded the 2014 Peter S. Reed Foundation Grant for music and in year 2009 she was an artist-in-residence at Yaddo. She composed music for the groundbreaking performance artist John Kelly's 2011 show The Escape Artist. Matt Kanelos is a pianist and songwriter who is a widely sought-after collaborator in the New York City jazz, avant garde and rock worlds. He draws equally on his classical conservatory background as well as his experience in jazz and new music. In recent years, he has performed and recorded with Jon Lundbom, Lorraine Leckie, Richard McGraw, Andrew Smiley, Nick Podgurski and Jason Liebman. Kanelos has released four well-received albums as a bandleader, most recently 2014's Love Hello.
