About Women In Need (WIN):
A NYC based organization helping our city’s homeless women and their families to become self-reliant through providing safe housing, education, career guidance and childcare support. The organization provides training in job readiness, financial literacy and public benefits navigation, and offers physical and mental health support to victims of domestic violence and those dealing with substance abuse. In addition, WIN provides critical childcare services, without which many women could not attend job interviews, search for permanent housing, or go to work. More info at http://winnyc.org/
THE HUM HOLIDAY CHEER: a benefit for Women In Need (WIN)
“a shockingly gifted, stunningly complex performer who’s just slightly out of place in too simple a setting.” – LA Times
“Watching Kaki King perform is like seeing guitar-playing for the first time… The effect is of sculpting rather than of playing music.” – NY Mag
“bare, powerful, and propulsive.” – KUTX Austin
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist Kaki King has released 8 albums over the past 13 years. She has performed on every continent over the course of multiple world tours, and has presented her work in a variety of prestigious arts centers, including the Kennedy Center, MoMA, LACMA and The Met. She has created music for numerous film and TV soundtracks, including “August Rush” and Sean Penn’s “Into the Wild”, for which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score.
Her most recent work until now, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body,” is Kaki at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. This groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto her signature Ovation Adamas guitar which has been customized specifically for this production.
Brooklyn-based Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn (b. 1974, Philadelphia) creates incorruptible independent pop music. Defined by her graceful songwriting and adventuresome recordings, Pitchfork has praised her “incredible voice—a versatile coo that can flit from low, sultry tones to high, airy falsetto in one breath.”
She has released over a dozen solo and collaborative recordings on K Records, Kill Rock Stars and various US domestic and foreign independent labels.
Collaborators include well-known producers Phil Elverum (The Microphones/Mount Eerie), Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Tucker Martine, Guy Sigsworth and Calvin Johnson, songwriters and composers such as Thao Nguyen, Lori Goldston, Susie Ibarra, Jherek Bischoff, Tara Jane O’Neil and Khaela Maricich (The Blow) and visual and media artists such as Anna Oxygen of Cloud Eye Control, Britta Johnson and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.
Her latest release, Changing Light, was self-released on her own imprint, Absolute Magnitude Recordings.
Zeitlyn has toured the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand many times since 1998.
Emmy The Great

She has supported Martha Wainwright, Mystery Jets, Tilly and The Wall, Jamie T, Euros Childs, Kimya Dawson and Get Cape Wear Cape Fly.

Anna Wise is a Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, and performer based in Brooklyn, NY. Anna has garnered a dedicated following amongst musicians and music fans alike ever since her collaborations with Kendrick Lamar on good kid, m.A.A.d city (“Real,” “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Money Trees”), To Pimp a Butterfly (“These Walls,” “Institutionalized”) & untitled unmastered (“untitled 01 | 08.19.2014.” & “untitled 05 | 09.21.2014.”). Their song “These Walls” won the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2016 Grammy’s.
In 2016 Anna entered into a different light, self releasing her first solo project, The Feminine: Act I. The EP, described as both outspoken and therapeutic, lead Vogue to describe Anna as “Trailblazing Feminist Pop”.
As a staunch supporter of independent artists in the entertainment industry, Anna is hands on with other mediums as well, creating works of video, photo and other various design to accompany her music. Anna also performs alongside her band, Sonnymoon, with whom she has released three albums, Golden Age, Sonnymoon, and The Courage of Present Times. Anna has shared the stage with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kimbra, The Roots, Third Story, Givers, Flying Lotus, Bilal, Teebs, Tei Shi, and more.
In 2017, Anna continues her story with The Feminine: Act II. Available now.
