(Re-scheduled from February.) Music careers take strange paths, and we've been around too long to declare "This is the next Big One," but we are here to let you know that, all of a sudden, everyone is talking about Girl Blue. Arielle O'Keefe is an Albany singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who released her first recording project, an EP called I Am Not A Star, just this past October. Within weeks the Capital District music scene was under the spell of her gorgeous, compelling soul-rock-pop sound. The single "Fire Under Water" was immediately picked up by Spotify and within a month saw over 1 million plays.
OKeefe is a fierce, dynamic vocalist and a natural lyricist who, unbeknownst to her home region, has been working at her craft for several years. She has performed on stage with Ingrid Michaelson and the legendary Rod Stewart. She spent a time as a staff songwriter for Universal Music and had a television debut on the E-Networks program Opening Act.
Girl Blue's momentum is generating tremendous heat and you will not want to miss this chance to see her in the intimate environs of Caffe Lena. In the words of one fan: There is nothing that can prepare you for the force of emotion and the passion that comes when she begins to sing.
