Rachel Lynn
"Rachel Lynn is a New York-based vocalist who creates music with style and substance." - The Huffington Post

Coming from an abundantly musical family, Rachel Lynn had her sights set on singing from a young age. The New York City based chanteuse is a classically trained vocalist whose original soulful pop music is entwined with her signature evocative lyrics. Her sound resonates with the passion of a singer-songwriter raised on 90′s pop and Motown masterpieces.

Rachel Lynn’s EP project, To Street & Transfer (2014), boasts “a powerful voice, top-notch writing ability and now a full band” (Arena.com). The project has been praised by publications such as The Huffington Post, Pop Matters, and Baeble Music, stating, "There's nothing apologetic about Rachel Lynn's voice; with booming soul and charismatic charm, she conquers space fervently and without restraint." (Baeble Music).

Lynn was named one of New Music Seminar’s Top 100 Artists on the Verge and was selected to officially showcase at CMJ 2014, CMJ 2015, and NACA Mid-Atlantic 2015. She has since opened for acts such as AJR (Warner Bros.), played several shows during SXSW 2017, and signed multiple sync licenses (Discovery, E!, Bravo, Netflix, TLC, Oxygen).

Rachel Lynn released a single titled “Seeing Red” in 2015 and is donating all proceeds to the animal rights organization Mercy For Animals. Since its release, the single and lyric video has been mentioned by various publications and internet personalities such as Global Vegans and Confront Magazine.

Rachel is thrilled to be celebrating the release of her new single, “Didn’t I” (available 3/1) at Pianos on 3/3, kicking off her SoFar Sounds release tour.
Ava Heatley - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Ava Heatley
Ava Rae Heatley is a New York based singer-songwriter who has been writing songs and gigging since she was thirteen. Her EP, “The Drive” was released in 2017, and she was named DNH Radio’s Discovered Artist of the Month in June. She is currently a semi-finalist in NYC/London based song writing contest, "Coffee Music Project". An experienced recording artist, Ava’s passion is performing her songs live, influenced by great piano-based acts like Elton John, Ben Folds and Sara Bareilles.

Her writing always rings authentic, at every stage of her life; starting with the spot-on high school characters of her first album “Words I Can’t Spell”, through the challenges of leaving home in “Live at the Bitter End”, continuing in the pain of broken relationships in “The Drive’, to the anxiety of adulthood in her new single “Grin and Bear It.”

As Ava puts it, “To me, songwriting is overreacting. It's refusing to move on. It's holding a grudge. It's framing and illuminating the thoughts you get embarrassed you had ten minutes after thinking them. It's taking moments that you'd otherwise let go and putting them in print, forever immortalizing them. It's melodramatic.”

Ava regularly gigs in New York City in places like The Bitter End, Pianos, Silvana and The Shrine.
Meg Bless - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
