An evening of local indie-folk singer/songwriters featuring Vonnie Kyle, ppoacher ppoacher & Laughing Branches.
7:30pm // All Ages // FREE
A native of Minneapolis, MN, Vonnie Kyle has honed her craft with the influences of standout female singer/songwriters such as Ani DiFranco, St. Vincent and Jenny Lewis. In 2013, she released her debut solo EP, "Run Run", after many years performing in various bands as a backup singer, keyboardist, accordionist and guitarist. Four years later, her latest EP, "Cold and Bitter Girl" was released on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
Kyle moved to Santa Fe, NM in 2017. That year, she wrote over 50 new songs and formed her current band, Ten Ten Division. A fun blend of garage-rock and indie-pop, they recorded and released their first EP, "Flowers & Bones", in 2018. She continues to write and perform with TTD, with plans for their next record already in the works.
Brothers’ of ppoacher ppoacher’s unique use of voice and earnestly goofy stage presence have left audiences wondering if the performer before them was an ethereal goblin, a feral roof dog, a long lost friend, a hillbilly Kate Bush impersonator, a banshee suffering an identity crisis, or a bag of feelings parading as a woman……
Residing in Santa Fe, NM by way of Fayetteville, AR, the influence of the land that made the woman making the music is palpable. Vocal Melodies expanding and contracting like a drive through the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, dipping howls and glottal stops like the churning of the Buffalo River, earthy grit of guttural tones like the red clay mud both lands harbor.
One can easily hear the influence of various folk music traditions, pop sensibilities, old school country heartbreak, peppered with a feeling of moving through other worlds....primarily the emotional landscape; beauty transmuted through valleys of deep pain, peaks of ecstatic joy, soft rolling hills of serenity, jagged rock formations of rage, and the bizarre catharsis of the open hearted exploration of it all. The performer as vehicle, steering you through with spells of the tenor banjo, celtic harp, and mostly human voice.
Santa Fe's newest folk duo is comprised of singer/songwriters Jesse Kohn and Zioleta.
