I like nothing more than a good cause. Ask my mama, I came out of the womb preaching â€œpeace, love, and recycling.â€ I like nothing more – except maybe a balmy spring night traipsing around the Lower East Sideâ€¦ after drinking a few bottles of beerâ€¦ while listening to some soulful musician who plays her heart out three feet away from me for, yes, a good cause! So put on your fedora, or find something original not sold at Urban Outfitters, and make your way to the National Underground this Friday night. Kaylin Lee Clinton headlines an evening of jazz, soul, and folk – all benefiting the exciting non-profit Musicians On Call.
Kaylin Lee Clinton is a Philadelphia-born singer-songwriter transplanted to New York City. The Irish, Israeli, and Russian folk music of her heritage blended with the classical composers and classic American folk artists of her 20-some years on this earth to produce a joyously unique sound of her own. Offoffonline.com says, “Clinton’s voice is lilting and lovely, and her spotlight moments are transcendent. The timbre of her voice alone can speak volumes. ” And nytheatre-wire.com raves, “Kaylin Lee Clinton breaks our hearts with her rendition of Kurt Weill’s ‘Tango Habanera’.” Clinton (vocals, composer) will be accompanied by band members Justin Goldner (bass) Nick Myers (sax), Kirk Schoenherr (guitar) Sam Levin (drums). She will certainly make you smile and laugh with abandon!
Clinton is partnering with organization Musicians On Call that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. In a country where people have to fight for care and worry ceaselessly while undergoing treatment, Musicians On Call uses music to promote and complement the healing process for patients, families and caregivers. Clinton will also be volunteering with Musicians On Call by performing her show for children in hospital isolation.
