Katy Tessman Band single release and book launch w/ Nikki Lemire $10
Saturday, February 11 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Katy Tessman is an optimistic and approachable singer-songwriter with a voice full of the wisdom she’s gained through breast cancer survival, heartbreak, and motherhood. Her powerful vocals and rhythmic approach to guitar (or mandolin) express a straight-from-the-heart songwriting style that moves passionately over diverse emotional and musical terrain. Tonight, Katy is releasing “Hero Now Crowned” as a single and launching the lyric picture book. It is a tribute to everyone who has overcome hardships – whether it be a health emergency, an addiction battle, or coping with anxiety, depression, or grief. Life can challenge us with these and many other painful experiences. You don’t have to have slayed the dragon to be a hero. Simply fighting, surviving, and continuing the battle certifies you as one. “Hero Now Crowned” celebrates you for this.
Nikki Lemire is a classical harpist by trade. Unveiling a new and original sound employing loop and electric guitar pedal board effects, she started writing on her Lyon and Healy pedal harp during the pandemic. With modern harp effects and textures, her songs sit somewhere between the folk stylings of Joan Baez, the musical innovation of Joni, and the minimalism of Philip Glass.
