On Saturday, April 9, we celebrated our third “The Relative Pitch Presents…” at Sola Coffee Cafe’ in North Raleigh. This show was created to highlight some of the outstanding talent I have seen perform at the Relative Pitch Open Mic in the past who I felt were ready for a larger platform. Our featured performers were singer/musician Kristen Brauns, and singer-songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Fantasy Dispute and Janelle True. We had a packed house and the performers put on a great show!
First up was Kristen Brauns. While no stranger to the stage, this was Kristen’s first solo performance and she handled it like a pro. During her set she showcased her skills as not only a vocalist, but also on the piano and ukulele. Here is a snippet of her performance of “Can’t Sleep Love”:
Next, was Fantasy Dispute, a talented trio of players who met while taking guitar lessons together. They performed a mixture of covers, like this one of “Dreams”:
and original pieces, like this one written by member Frank:
Finally, we ended the night with Janelle True, a young singer songwriter who has self-produced two full length albums. Janelle dazzled the crowd with a set of mostly original music and reworked covers. Here is a snippet of Janelle’s original song:
As always, I am extremely grateful to Sola Coffee Cafe’ for giving us a home and for all the good food and hospitality. I am also appreciative to those who came out to support these young artists, as well as the performers who did an amazing job!!! I hope you will join us next month on Saturday, May 21 for the next The Relative Pitch Youth Open Mic…
See you then!
