In my time of uncertainty
I'm searching for serenity
Shattered soul, how to make it whole
Won't someone tell me how?
~ Simple is Beautiful, Violette
A French native singer-songwriter living in New York, Violette was trained in classical piano as a young child. She began writing her own songs at the age of 15 and has just released her third album, Simple is Beautiful. Moving out of her roots in jazz to a more pop-rock sound, the album is both simple and beautiful, with just enough instrumentation to support her angelic voice without feeling sparse.

Wandering troubadour in need of rest
Lay your weary head upon my chest
If you need shelter from the road
I’ll take you in. I’ll take you home
~ Wandering Troubadour, Leslie Krafka
Texas songwriter Leslie Krafka was bitten by the songwriting bug after being gifted a songwriting workshop with Terri Hendrix & Lloyd Maines as an anniversary present, simply for the opportunity to hang out with folks she admired. Quickly hooked, Leslie went from from never playing or singing out at all to the world of lessons and putting out an album to winning songwriter contests in five short years!

Gravity feels weaker than it ever used to
Light as a feather, blown by the wind without you
I float above all that I love and I can't get home
Till you pull me back, you show me that I'm not alone
~ Anchor, Bess Rogers
Brooklyn-based artist Bess Rogers just came out with her fourth independent release, Out of the Ocean. Featuring all the upbeat handclaps, sweet harmonies, indie punk and pop progressions and catchy melodies we've come to love from Bess, the album is also tied together with her fascination with science. Themes of evolution and love are woven together masterfully in an album that is the perfect balance of smart and fun. Bess will be performing at Cafe Paradiso on Oct. 24th with Allison Weiss.

She had donuts and daydreams by the baker's dozen
She wished her life could be something that it wasn't
~ Donuts & Daydreams, Jane Godfrey
Growing up in a large and highly musical family, St. Louis singer-songwriter Jane Godfrey spent a lifetime of listening to and making music with her brothers and sisters before a serious of sleepless nights led to her picking up a pen to write herself.
