Join us in the The Moon Represents My Heart concert series, a reflection of the current exhibition which focuses on the transformative power of music and identity. Tonight, we present the launch of local artist Sarah Kang’s sophomore EP, “One.”

 

Sarah is a New York City based indie pop/jazz singer-songwriter. Her voice has been described as pure and speaking directly to the heart. Her debut EP “Fair Weather” was a self-produced, DIY project recorded in her closet in 2015. Since then, she was a finalist at the Coffee Music Festival in 2018 and the winner of PickUp Music and D’Angelico’s Emerging Artist Fund in April of this year. She has performed in venues all over the city, including The Knitting Factory, The Studio at Webster Hall, The Bitter End, and Rockwood Music Hall. Her newly released EP, “One,” is her first to include songs written in Korean; the project explores themes of Asian-American identity, the passing of time, the familiar feelings of love, and the struggle to hold onto dreams.

Performing with her are Dan Song on guitar, Takahiro Izumikawa on keys, Geraldt Stewart on drums, Kenji Tokunaga on bass, and Keren Abreu and Danie Valentin on background vocals.

 

Opening for Sarah are Takkin and Jay Miners.

 

Takkin is a NYC-based singer-songwriter with haunting vocals, whose songs wrestle with feelings of longing in the dark spaces of solitude that transcend language, torn between the mundane and divine, the head and the heart.

 

Jay Miners is a NYC-based folk-pop artist who recently released her second EP "The Art We Make" (Feb 2019), which explores the nuances and journey of creating art.
