An acoustic showcase of Boston’s rising songwriters!
New England Music Award-winning Katie Dobbins draws from a palette of contemporary folk and new country to create a genre uniquely her own. With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift the spirit and challenge the soul. Carolyn Kruse of Country 102.5 WKLB raved, “Sweet but bold, Katie’s voice is reminiscent of one of her heroes, Jewel, but only deeper . . . a fearless spirit with a gentle touch.” Tom Bianchi, Talent Buyer at Somerville’s The Burren, voiced “with gorgeous harmony and song Katie lyrically weaves in stories of healing, growing and moving forward through the struggles of life.” Dobbins’ sophomore album, There Is Light, contains remarkably honest songs that capture seasons of both hardship and joy, but hold onto the hope that light will always illuminate and overpower darkness.
A Boston homegrown singer, songwriter, and multi instrumentalist, Alec crafts music that grabs your attention and pulls you in. A stirring combination of soaring folk melodies, deep soul grooves, and catchy pop sensibility, the result is an experience not easily forgotten.
