Danielle Miraglia/ Lisa Bastoni Extraordinary Double Bill!!
LISA BASTONI

       Singer-songwriter Lisa Bastoni's new album, How We Want to Live, chronicles life changes, including songs about the dissolution of her marriage and learning to live a new normal -- but more than anything, it finds the songwriter diving deeper into the life she craves. Throughout the albums ten tracks, themes wind from romantic relationships to those with her children, parents, and friends -- weaved throughout, are her hopes for herself and the world around her.

       How We Want to Live (Sept. 20), produced by award-winning songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Staples, features guest performances by Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins, Lula Wiles and Naomi Sommers.

      A 2019 Kerrville New Folk Winner, Lisa Bastoni has shared the stage with Lori McKenna, Little Big Town, Arlo Guthrie, Regina Spektor, The Secret Sisters, Teddy Thompson, and many more.

      Following a ten-year break from music, Lisa Bastoni's album The Wishing Hour (2017), produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter Felix McTeigue, was recorded in the kids' playroom in the wee hours of the night. It debuted as number one most-played on Boston's WUMB and led to a number of songwriting awards and an active performance schedule.      

"LISA BASTONI is a genuine artist. Her articulate songs come from the soul, and resonate in the heart. She debuted her new album and a few other gorgeous songs last night with her producer, consummate musician Sean Staples. How We Want To Live is a deep and powerful album, and an affirmation of her triumph in the 2019 Kerrville New Folk Festival contest.
When I hear Lisa perform, I cant help but draw a parallel between her songs and those of another New England treasure, Lori McKenna. Bastoni masters the same narrative beauty and poignancy in her compositions, and similarly balances demands of motherhood and career gracefully. The song, Beautiful Girl, written for her daughter, is reflective of that  and Lisa Bastoni herself"   Nate Dow (Boston Herald)

DANIELLE MIRAGLIA

Danielle Miraglia is like a musical butterfly whos been granted unlimited creative metamorphoses. Even her musical chrysalis stage was a surprise emergence. Unlike so many Boston artists who attended one of the citys many music schools, Miraglia went to Emerson College, graduating with a creative writing degree. Though she owned an acoustic guitar she seldom played anywhere but at home, she hadnt given any thought to making a career as a singer-songwriter until one fateful night at the famous, now-defunct Kendall Cafe. She went to an open mic at the Kendall just to watch and absorb. It didnt take long for it to register with her: I thought, Thats what I want to do: Get on stage to do my storytelling that way. Voila!

Her evolution as a songwriter and performer since then has been remarkable. She quickly won great acclaim and a faithful national and regional following after beginning as a folk-blues picker, and its a persona she still skillfully embraces in solo shows, but to hear her musical storytelling with such a fine backing band as the satirically named Glory Junkies (Laurence Scudder, viola; Erik White, guitar; Chris Anzalone, drums; and Jim Larkin, bass) is an entirely different dimension. That soul of a creative writer thrives in a vast range of musical styles. Danielle now rocks an electric guitar with equal aplomb, and all with a rocking and soulful energy that pays homage to top influences such as Janis Joplin, Prince and the Stones. No matter how Danielle Miraglias stories unfold on stage, they are a joy to hear.

She and the Glory Junkies wowed the sellout crowd during their live-stream taping at the Fallout Shelter, playing tunes from the bands second album, All My Heroes Are Ghosts   now billed under the moniker Danielle M & the Glory Junkies (sparing DJs the quandary of the pronunciation of her last name). Those stories she dreamt of telling musically on stage are now like butterflies of their own. - Nate Dow  - https://asheardhere.com/
