About Simi Stone & Kat Wright:
“Simantha Molly Lou Sernaker (aka Simi Stone) is a renowned musician, songwriter, and visual artist born and raised in the storied town of Woodstock, NY. With a Jamaican father and mother a disciple of Swami Satchidananda, Simi fit right in to the creative ‘hippie’ culture of the notable town while still remaining an artistic outlier.
In 2014 Simi went solo. She struck up a creative partnership with known producer, David Baron ( Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz , Meghan Trainor and Bat for Lashes). They recorded a series of EPs and Simi’s self-titled debut album, which she dubbed “Mountain Motown”. filled with soul, rock, pop and Motown inflections. Together they gathered an amazing band of players to record including Zachary Alford( David Bowie, Gwen Stephanie B52s, Sara Lee ( Gang of Four, Indigo Girls, Gail Ann Dorsey( David Bowie) and others to play on the records and do live shows as the Simi Stone Band. Hudson Valley Magazine featured Simi on the cover and designated her “Best New Artist”. “It’s crazy that Simi isn’t famous yet.” the magazine comments.
Over the last few years Simi has found herself as a guest vocalist on two of Natalie Merchant’s albums: the 2014 self-titled Natalie Merchant as well as Paradise is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings in 2015, and touring, performing, and recording with The New Pornographers, Natalie Merchant, Neko Case, Conor Oberst, Gipsy Kings, Simone Felice, and Amy Helm. Aside from her musical accomplishments, The Visual Works of Simi Stone were showcased at Ardnaglass Gallery from May – July 2016.”
“Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as ‘a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse.’ Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.”
