Carol Lipnik: "Visible Heart" with Matt Kanelos on piano. Presented by TWEED.
New songs of fragility, vulnerability and resilience.
Well into the fourth year of their acclaimed residency at Pangea, Lipnik and Kanelos return on Sunday, September 15th, at 7pm with Visible Heart; a new collection of original songs and selected covers on the themes of fragility, vulnerability, and resilience, that Carol composed this past summer in a stone tower in upstate, NY.
"Her instrument is, in a word, phenomenal."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"...a siren song to lost cosmopolitans everywhere. Dark, funny, and cosmically aligned."
Richard Gehr, The Village Voice
"There's a reason she's become one of the most talked about singers in decades... it is her crystalline voice that caresses the poetic savvy of her musicianship and the force of her bonhomie that truly sets her apart from every female singer on the club scene today. No one is doing what she does. Her moody charisma sparkles like a canary diamond in the perfect setting. The lady is unique and highly skilled at casting subtle spells through her songs of mystic and obsessive messages on personal journeys and universal topics. Mostly, she is a fierce conduit of fantasy. It takes a lot of talent and intelligence to pull this off with simple grace. Lipnik accomplishes this with ease and no frills."
- John Hoglund, Cabaret Scenes Magazine
Produced by TWEED TheaterWorks, Kevin Malony artistic director.
Carol Lipnik's voice is a thing of wonder, soaring across four octaves with remarkable fluidity, gently cradling listeners in its sublimely sustained tone. Her songs have an aura of prophecy and the power to wound and heal.
A poet of beauty, decay and desolation, Carol sets her lyrics in spare, harmonically rich soundscapes created in collaboration with pianist Matt Kanelos. Mythical imagery the moon, crows, wolves, boats and journeys evoke the eternal world of nature and hint at some past or future devastation. Throughout the dreamlike landscapes run subtle, sly allusions to the perils and possibilities of contemporary life, encouraging us to mourn, be comforted, and reach for another ecstatic moment of joy.
