Oakland-based vocalist, Amy LaCour returns to Studio Grand with cellist, Misha Khalikulov and percussionist, Josh Mellinger for a night of original material inspired by the American traditions of folk, soul, blues, jazz, and bluegrass.
Amy and Misha began collaborating in late 2013 and quickly discovered a musical chemistry. Khalikulov brings years of classical training and improvisational experience to LaCour’s blues and folk-based songwriting. The result is a spare and intimate setting that highlights musicianship, voice, and song. Percussionist, Josh Mellinger joined in 2015 to round out the trio.
“I believe that it is an artist’s role to shine a light on cultural, social, familial, and personal truths in an effort to inspire contemplation, self-reflection, and conversation. Facing our truths is a healing process, vital to our personal and collective health. I am not interested in preaching, I am interested in finding our shared humanity and through music, calling on that vulnerable place in each of us.”
