// SOLDIER KANE with a presentation of masterworks by photographer Art KaneDowntown NY music legends Jonathan Kane (guitar, drums) and Dave Soldier (violin, banjo) as Soldier Kane harness their collective experiences into a singular sound encompassing minimalism, blues, noise, jazz, soul, country, and the great American songbook.
// HELEN MONEYHelen Money (Alison Chesley) is a Los Angeles-based cellist, composer, performer, and recording artist who has become known for her intense, unconventional solo compositions that transform the cello into a thrilling, cathartic rock instrument.
"Any self-respecting fan of downtown music could tell you that a project involving drummer Jonathan Kane and multi-instrumentalist David Soldier is bound to be both intensely eclectic and a whole lot of fun."Time Out New York
"Somewhere between Sonic Youth and Steve Reich is the drummer Jonathan Kane - interested in the crossroads of new music iconoclasm and experimental rock. Virtuosic."New York Times
"One thing about having an approach as idiosyncratic as Dave Soldier's is that once listeners know your work at all, they realize that coming to new works with any expectations about style, form or language is fruitless."New York Times “Helen Money conjures up truly majestic music from her bow: It's the sound of wounded forests, of trees harboring centuries of resentment. Lovers of modern minimalists, of folk music, and of doom metal should all find something to thrill here.”LA City Beat
“Helen Money reveals everything a person can say by playing cello through a guitar amp ... She’s both a bruiser and an uncompromising romantic, capable of hack sawing and puncturing each note ... or oozing seductively around it.”East Bay Express
“Alison's music is heavy and it's her own. She's not kissing anyone's ass when she plays and these days that's saying something.”Joe Lally, Fugazi
