Our lady of Vilnius Church, 570 Broome St. NYC (mouth of the Holland tunnel)
Monika Heidemann brings her band on January 13th at 8:30PM to the Our lady of Vilnius Church in Soho, NYC for a performance and shooting of a music video to be released in April.
The music of Monika Heidemann gives a sensation of being perched on a high cliff at a perfect angle of repose, where the fall is visible but not inevitable, sitting just outside of dissonance, barely safe from chaos. Heidemann is the leader, writer, and member of this self-titled NYC based project, the Monika H. Band - now in its third year and gathering more attention than ever. Her compositions and lyrics are a platform for her band to tell the ever-changing musical story of her songs, teetering between the written music and their own playful additives and interpretations. She brings to new vocal music an unusual twist on jazz forms, improvisation, pop culture, and raw rock n' roll – all cleverly tied into her own dreamlike interpretation of the world.
Many vocalists come forth and want the world to hear their dissimilar approach, but not many of them are actually giving us anything different. Monika Heidemann is one that clearly stands above the rest. " -Inside Connection, Oct. 2006
"On her debut CD, Bright, (MH-2006) Monika Heidemann gracefully and clearly delivers her deliciously off-kilter prosody. She has cultivated her own unique style with such conviction that more than one jazz writer has proclaimed the discovery of a new genre." - New Music Box
Stories told through these modern day art-songs will be supported by a band of brilliant NYC musicians and improvisers. : Erik Deutsch-Keys, Brandon Seabrook- Guitar, Jonti Simon- Bass, Dave Treut- Drums
"Possessed of a very fine voice and an original style, I consider Monika one of the most promising and talented young musicians that I know."-Steve Lacy, Jazz Saxophone
