When: Mon., April 10, 10:30 p.m. 2017
New York City’s Becca Stevens is fond of high-concept albums. Her 2014 record Perfect Animal likens songwriting to a wild beast that must be tamed. She just dropped Regina, a collection of jazz and folk hybrids that celebrates and pays homage to queens from history, fables and stories of Stevens’ own creation. She’s collaborated with a number of high-profile artists, such as Brad Mehldau, David Crosby and, most recently, avant-pop maven Laura Mvula. Stevens stitches her influences together in a dreamlike haze of unconventional harmonies, swells of orchestral strings and Appalachian sensibilities. Becca Stevens performs on Monday, April 10, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington.
