SHADOW PUPPETS TO ACCOMPANY SONGWRITER’S DEEP NEW MATERIAL
Rising songwriter Kristin Andreassen will be joined by a who’s who of
the NYC folk music scene to celebrate the release of her new album
‘Gondolier’ at Joe’s Pub on March 10. In addition, visual artist Amy Helfand will supply shadow puppets created specifically for this concert.

She offers vivid metaphors and deep questions on her new album
‘Gondolier,’ which is earning spotlights from the likes of CMT Edge,
Travel + Leisure, Country Weekly, UTNE Reader, and syndicated radio
spots from Mountain Stage, Woodsongs, and Music City Roots. Executive
produced by Chris Eldridge of the Punch Brothers, ‘Gondolier’ tackles
topics such as where one belongs; depression; expectations of the
future; memories of war; self-imposed isolation; and alcoholism; all
with a lightness and freshness of idea and imagery.

Aoife O’Donovan, her former bandmate who sings on ‘Gondolier,’ says, “In
Sometymes Why, we used to call Kristin ‘the mistress of metaphor.’ Her
knack for drawing deep (and sometimes dark) meaning out of seemingly
sweet lyrics is uncanny. On this new album, Kristin Andreassen has
arrived at a whole new level- the production is spot-on, the songs
eerily unique yet timeless, and her singing pristine. Gondolier is a
spectacular record that we're going to be listening to for a long time.”
O’Donovan and Ruth Ungar, Andreassen’s bandmates from the trio
Sometymes Why, will both be joining me on harmony vocals at the Joe’s
show. (Plus see below for rest of the band).
