About this Event

Jennifer Greer is a multi-award-winning, self-taught singer/songwriter pianist who plays funky art-pop.

Growing up in a suburb outside New York City, poetry was her first love, and she wrote with great devotion for the first half of her life. Although she had also been singing since she was a little girl, she didn't begin to write songs until she was 28, being drawn to the piano like a magnet. Finding her way around the piano by ear, she was finally able to bring together these two sides of her artistic life into a joyous whole.

Her songs stack layers of sound in ways that are delicious and endearing, funky and focused but never straightforward. Jennifer’s first album, Jewel Machine (2001), won the WRSI singer/songwriter competition. In 2005, she released the Apiary, which got rave reviews and won Best Adult Alternative CD 2005 from the Muse’s Muse, and she won best unsigned pop artist from Verbicide Magazine in 2008. She was a Finalist in the NewSong Mountain Stage competition in 2010 and 2012 after releasing Fistful of Stars. Her fourth album, Hey Tide, which she recorded with Tori Amos' bass player, evoked the passion of Joni Mitchell. Jennifer just finished recording her fifth full-length studio album with Grammy-award winning producer Nahuel Bronzini. It will be released in winter 2023.

eggcorn is the moniker of Bay Area songwriter/singer, Lara Hoffman, and refers to a word or phrase that is mistook for another word or phrase. Her debut album, Your Own True Love (2022), journeys through the tropes of romanticism and the human desire to find meaning outside of oneself. Creating the intergalactic, synth-laden, electronic soundscape of YOTL, Lara has since reimagined these songs for live performance with the talents of her band: Kyle Stringer (bass), Ali Gummess (violin), Karen Moran (viola), and Peter Craft (drums). She is currently working on a new compilation encapsulating the orchestral indie rock of eggcorn’s concerts.
