      Clavius Productions presents two shows at the Velvet Lounge this weekend to get you out of your winter doldrums:

      Erik Deutsch, born in Washington D..C., is as busy as anyone in the music business. Currently a resident of Brooklyn, NY, the pianist has recently worked with Norah Jones, Trevor Dunn, and Ellery Eskelin (to name a few). He just wrapped up three years in the Charlie Hunter Trio (recording Mistico and Baboon Strength), and is currently splitting time with Kristina Train and Erin McKeown in support of their new albums. Erik has recently completed work on a new album: Hush Money. Released on November 10, the music reflects a unique balance between the chamber-esque cinematic composition of Deutsch’s previous record, Fingerprint, with the rhythm and blues aesthetic of Charlie Hunter. Throw in a heavy dose of Erik’s extensive arsenal of analog synthesizers and Hush Money is surely the most wide-ranging recording of his career. “Erik Deutsch, a pianist with a taste for tuneful provocation, is an especially valuable resource as a solo commentator and accompanist…” – NY Times Recent

      Discography:

      Charlie Hunter Trio: Baboon Strength (2008 Spire Artists)
      Erik Deutsch: Fingerprint (2007 Sterling Circle Records)
      Erin McKeown: Lafayette (2007 Signature Sounds)
      Ron Miles: Stone/Blossom (2006 Sterling Circle Records)


      Stella Schindler

      "With an emotive delivery that at various points brings to mind Marianne Faithfull and Iris Dement under the spell of eerie gothic gloom, Stella Schindler makes a striking impression on Distant Hum. Her seductive style has a hazy feel that’s elusive yet inviting. She effectively integrates various strands of quiet despair, resulting in an album deliriously imbued with imagery and allusion.

      The set begins provocatively with the dirge-like ballad “Ancient Trail” and maintains its sensual sway. However, Schindler hits her stride with “Get Along Joseph,” an upbeat shuffle that suggests vintage Dylan helmed by Gram and Emmylou." (Lee Zimmerman, Performing Songwriter Magazine)
