CAROL LIPNIK: Half Of Me Is Ocean, Half Of Me Is Sky
An evening of cover songs with Matt Kanelos
Political, Mystical, Shamanic, Funny, and Transporting!

Well into the third year of their acclaimed residency at Pangea, Lipnik and Kanelos' latest show features their unique interpretations of songs by such artists as The Talking Heads, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Michael Hurley, John Lennon, Nina Simone, Johnny Mercer, Joni Mitchell, Connie Converse, Neil Young, Harry Nilsson, Leonard Cohen, Tom Petty, Screaming Jay Hawkins and more.

"Her instrument is, in a word, phenomenal."
     Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"...a siren song to lost cosmopolitans everywhere. Dark, funny, and cosmically aligned."
      Richard Gehr, The Village Voice

Carol Lipnik's voice is a thing of wonder, soaring across four octaves with remarkable fluidity, gently cradling listeners in its sublimely sustained tone. Her songs have an aura of prophecy and the power to wound and heal. A poet of beauty, decay and desolation, Carol creates, harmonically rich soundscapes in collaboration with pianist Matt Kanelos; Mythical imagery the moon, crows, wolves, boats and journeys evoke the eternal world of nature and hint at some past or future devastation. Throughout the dreamlike landscapes run subtle, sly allusions to the perils and possibilities of contemporary life, encouraging us to mourn, be comforted, and reach for another ecstatic moment of joy.
