About the Artist
The first concert in the new Channels series features Sky Creature, comprised of singer Majel Connery and baritone guitarist Matt Walsh. Based in Rockaway Beach, New York City, Sky Creature is defined as a space between art music and punk rock. The band’s sound draws comparisons with artists from Kate Bush to Suicide. For over a decade, Walsh toured as one half of post-punk duo The Forms, sharing the stage with artists ranging from The National to St. Vincent to Hum. Connery’s solo music has been featured on Radiolab, New Sounds radio, and Live from the Kennedy Center. In the summer of 2022, Sky Creature released their double EP Bear Mountain/Childworld, and toured nationally. They are currently finishing their first LP with Steve Albini.
Majel Connery will open the evening with songs from her Rivers Are Our Brothers project. The songs in the cycle take a first-person view of nature, ascribing human qualities and feelings to elements of the landscape: water, trees, mountains, rivers, etc.
A new music series that defies boundaries and celebrates the river as a means of travel, exploration, and source of new ideas – Channels presents adventurous music in unique Hudson River Town settings. The mission of the series is to bring together artists and audiences in the spirit of connectivity and discovery, by taking advantage of one of the area’s greatest resources—its location.
