Eleanor Elektra, Pinkie Promise, and Crispin Swank
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, singer songwriter Eleanor Elektra combines elements of folk, jazz and classical music within the songwriter idiom to create unique cinematic songs. Largely a self taught guitarist, her playing is both technical and idiosyncratic, skillfully supporting songs that are rich in both composition and execution. She has performed extensively throughout the north east and north west United States.
Pinkie Promise (Kaitlin Pelkey from Nosy Mangabe)
For the past five years Kaitlin has been gigging, recording, and starting to tour with the band she composes, plays tenor ukulele, and sings lead vocals for called Nosy Mangabe. Though somewhat of a potpourri of influences, their sound can be described as progressive-jazz-folk, whimsy-pop, or her personal favorite – bubblegum jazz! Together they have released recorded material, booked 3 national and international tours and are currently organizing a monthly series of events called Weird Folk Fests.
Furthermore, having just graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Therapy and a minor in Psychology, Kaitlin will be beginning a Music Therapy internship at the Louis & Lucille Armstrong Music Therapy Program at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City starting September 2016.
