Playing Fender Rhodes and other sounds with Deb Montgomery
On July 27th Deb Montgomery, Sarah O'Dea, Cape Disappointment, and Aly Crase take the stage at the Bourbon Bar at Columbia City Theater to play local folk music.
Deb Montgomery has grown accustomed to dwelling in life’s in-between spaces: she’s a Canadian who moved to Seattle from New York City, a rocker with acoustic finesse, and a religious vagabond. Over the course of her music career and four records, some film credits, and the pleasure of sharing stages with a plethora of amazing musicians, Montgomery has solidified her ability to write and play with unreserved passion. ”...Deb is probably one of the best songwriters out there right now. Her lyrics tell stories, speak of love and pain, but always with devastating eloquence.” —Huffington Post
Since 2013, Sarah O'Dea has played professionally at hundreds of venues including bars, restaurants, coffee houses, art festivals, weddings and private events. Besides performing her original music, she enjoys putting an acoustic spin on songs from a variety of genres. She was based in Michigan for 4 years, currently plays regularly in Seattle, WA and has performed in U.S cities such as Chicago (IL), Hilton Head Island (SC) and Carrboro (NC), and European cities such as Prague (cz), Dublin, London and Brighton (UK).
Cape Disappointment is the moniker for Seattle-based songwriter, Jeffrey P. Martin. He writes “raw, honest, stripped-down” songs about places, loss, love, and life. He’s been playing all over the country for the past decade—everywhere from New York to Seattle. Formerly as Jeffrey Martin, now as Cape Disappointment.
Aly Crase is a singer/songwriter from Seattle, WA.
She crafts her songs through improv and believes that music should be organic, raw and have flaws which reflect the human spirit.
Aly is self taught on piano and has been playing since she was 3. She is classically trained on violin and has been playing since she was 6 and plays with symphonies and bands live and in studio.
