V. Contreras with Okanomodé, Alessandra Rose, Eric Jaeger, Andrew Joslyn and Passenger String Quartet

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
 

Celebrate V. Contreras’ highly acclaimed sophomore album VALIENTE.  Known for her distinct alternative soul sound, glamorous stage persona and fierce performance chops, V.’s sold out album release concert left fans are eager to hear this new collection of songs in an intimate setting.

 

This show will be melodic, vocal and lush, featuring a set of previous material and songs from VALIENTE plus brand new never performed before music.

 

Audiences will get to swim in the gorgeous string arrangements performed live by Andrew Joslyn and Passenger String Orchestra while enjoying an impressive acoustic set with V. and extraordinary Flamenco guitarist Eric Jaeger (Children of the Revolution).

 

And if that’s not enough to make your heart stop, fans are in for a treat with an opening set by Okanamode (Now I’m Fine and Susan - ahamefule j. oluo) who is sure to break every fiber of your being with his heart-breaking songwriting and voice.

 

About VALIENTE:  The album kicked off with a music video for LIKE IT’S YESTERDAY which earned a feature on Huff Post and earned a spot in the International Songwriting Contest.  The album is introspective and honest.  It is about understanding and acceptance.  It’s about acknowledgement. It is lush and bold.  It has a tinge of V.’s 60’s throwback sound with modern overtones and tracks programmed by V.

About the incredible featured artists at this performance

Okanomodé will perform a set prior to V.'s performance on 4.19.20.  If you have not seen him before, he is going to melt your soul with his voice and music. Okanomodé (uh-kahn-uh-mah-day) is an expressionist, composer, and shape-shifting siren, born and raised in The Emerald City. Okanomodé served as both lyricist and featured vocalist of the critically acclaimed experimental pop opera, ‘Now I'm Fine’, by Ahamefule J. Oluo — and is currently featured as co- vocalist and lyricist in Ahamefule J. Oluo’s newest work ‘Susan’, which premiered at On the Boards in Seattle, and at Under the Radar Festival at The Public Theater in New York City.

You may remember Alessandra from V.'s album release concert where she blew audience members away. Here gorgeous voice and songs draw you in and leave you wanting more.  Alessandra will be setting the tone of the evening with a gorgeous set of new tunes.

Eric performed LIKE IT'S YESTERDAY with V. at her album release concert and will join V. for a set on 4.19.20. Eric has been playing professionally  for over 20 years and has lived and studied extensively in Andalucía, Spain. His most influential teacher has been Martín Chico of the famous gypsy flamenco family los Revuelos. His guitar style incorporates his further study of Greek, Turkish, Latin, Arabic and rock music. Eric is the lead guitarist and co-founder/producer of the band "Children of the Revolution". 

If you heard V.'s albums, you have heard Andrew's work as a string and horn arranger and violinist.  Andrew is a contributing Grammy Award winning violinist and composer who writes original music for filmcommercialspodcastsconcert stage and video games

Andrew formed the Passenger String Quartet which is an experimental neo-classical group in high demand as studio session musicians and backs a wide variety of touring groups like Judy Collins, David Bazan, DJ Spooky, Suzanne Vega and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
