How many times have we heard, “We should be trying to get bigger and better music talent to play Buffalo.” or “It’s too bad that there are not different size music venues to attract the acts that we would like to have play here.”
If you’re still asking those questions, then chances are that you’ve not paying attention to the music talent that is making routine appearances here. Take Shenandoah Davis for example. The young indie pop, classical, ragtime and American roots pianist is playing at The Vault on October 1, and will be accompanied by cellist and drummer. Not only will you be able to catch this show in an intimate and inspiring Main Street venue, you will hear a voice that Sound on the Sound calls “achingly beautiful” and Ball of Wax describes as “jaw-dropping set against just about any other contemporary singer.”
With the help of Kickstarter, the trio has set out on a nationwide tour to promote the release of The Company We Keep, which launched in their hometown of Seattle before setting out for San Diego, Chicago, New York, Montreal, New Orleans, Austin and Buffalo. If we want to continue to see these types of acts pass through town, while prompting others to do the same, then get yourself over to The Vault to see Shenandoah and experience up and coming talent that has already played the world by opening for such acts as Zoe Keating, Perfume Genius, Dark Dark Dark, and A Hawk And A Hacksaw.
