New York-based Israeli guitarist and vocalist Dida Pelled has a particular talent for storytelling. Whether it be a jazz standard, a scorching blues number, an old country ballad, or a heartfelt original “Dida sings in a voice sometimes playful, warm, resonant, no frills. She sings the words, giving them their meaning, their weight, with perfect diction and charm.” (Jazz Hot, France)
In early 2017, after years of playing mostly solo shows, Paul Moody reached out to the most talented Chicago musicians he knew to form Paul Moody and the Revelators. The band’s debut EP, The Island, was released later that year. It’s full of heavy themes and unflinching self-reflection, but with a level of playfulness and humor not found previously in Moody’s music. He’s steeped in the rich history of American folk music, while having a perspective and feel that could only exist in today’s culture and society.
