Vilray and Rachael Price met in Boston as students of Jazz. This duo grew from a shared reverence for the pop music of the 1930s and 40s and its wide range of moods. With simple intimate arrangements, they perform original works and revive forgotten gems of radio’s golden age.
The New York Times called their 2019 self-titled debut “as cozy as it is sophisticated.” A follow-up from Nonesuch Records is coming soon.
This benefit supports the International Language Institute of Massachusetts. ILI’s mission is to promote intercultural understanding and diverse communities by providing high-quality language instruction and teacher training. Learn more about ILI at ili.edu.
“Music can create this intangible space where everyone belongs — beyond borders, beyond boundaries, beyond labels — where we’re just people with all of our complicated, beautiful, painful lives, sharing the experience of taking in the music. It’s a space of connection. Real connection.”
Alisa Amador is a connector. Her upcoming EP, Narratives, is a six-song snapshot in time. It’s a deep look at a person stumbling through life in two languages — English and Spanish — and in many states of mind about it all. Alisa’s crystal-clear vocals are so effortless throughout Narratives that it’s almost easy to forget how technically talented she is, until she moves from almost-spoken-word territory to a powerful chorus without hesitation or illustrates a repetitive refrain that’s so affecting it feels like you might want to live inside it for a little while.
