In a career that spans six decades, 26 albums and three GRAMMY awards, Hudson Valley Troubadour Tom Chapin’s infectious songs, sterling musicianship, and personal warmth consistently shine through. “I’m at that place in my life where I follow what interests me,” Chapin concludes. “I still love the guitar, I still love to sing, and I still love the thrill of creation: a good song, a good recording, a good concert. I feel blessed to be my own boss, creating my own material and performing for so many different audiences, ages and generations.” Chapin’s witty, life-affirming, original songs will delight us as we tune in together for Chapin’s heartfelt songcraft and his effortlessly charismatic live performance style.

“New York rocker maps the road to resilience. Cano holds his ground, fully embodying self-sustainability and creating an entirely reputable album as an independent artist.” -Paste Magazine
Alex Cano is a New York based folk/alternative rock solo artist. Cano’s sound has been described as a cross pollination between high-energy alternative rock, and reflective folk/roots rock with a touch of outlaw country. His soulful baritone voice (often compared to those of Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, and Eddie Vedder) makes you feel his honest stories of resilience and survivorship.
Alex’s debut album ‘Every Rise of the Sun’ was released June 25, 2019. For more info visit: www.alexcanomusic.com
Riki Stevens, a Norwalk, CT native, wowed judges and took first place at Tarrytown Music Hall’s Rock The Hall in 2019. Stevens musical career began in the church as a young gospel singer. Since then, Stevens has grown into a powerful, unique, and riveting singer-songwriter sometimes compared to Tracey Chapman. Recently, Stevens has been working on a full-length “Avant pop album,” album, an expression of a different, and more experimental side of Riki. She took her interest in punk and folk music and created a project that talks about her journey to self-realization, artistic empowerment and freedom of expression, and letting of past trauma and pain. Stevens hopes to release the album in 2021. If you would like to know more, please follow her social media @rikistevensofficial.
