Join us for Todd Kessler Presents: Songwriters in the Round at Hey Nonny! Hosted by Todd Kessler, this monthly event features a different group of singer-songwriters for each performance. Join the circle and get an up close and personal musical experience.
July includes Todd’s featured artist Laura Glyda with Kevin Farris and Pino farina.
Explosive vocals and rich guitar sounds aren’t the only things that catch your attention when Laura Glyda performs. Deep and direct lyrics keep you listening while her confidence in the spotlight keeps you watching. Above all, the Chicago native’s songs ring out with truth, and the poetry you can find within that truth. Her latest record, “Radio Ghosts,” is a rock album rooted in storytelling that explores the journey from heartbreak to hope and back again.
Kevin Farris is a singer-songwriter from the Chicagoland area, penning gritty/soulful and undeniably catchy songs that cross the pop rock and indie-folk genres. A musical journey that started in his youth and unfolds into the present…Kevin cultivates his own creative spirit through powerful vocals and a sense of melodic intentionality. Thanks to familial influence, Kevin gained inspiration from an unique range of artists all while developing his own taste and musical sensibility.
Pino Farina is a singer-songwriter in Chicago. In his early career, as a member of the indie-rock band Punsapaya, he toured the country extensively and in 2005 was awarded the Rock Album of the Year by the Chicago Music Awards. After some time off, the band has picked up where they left off, and have been writing and recording new original material as Pino Farina Band. The new album, “Start Over Again”, was released in May of 2018 and the band is currently heading out in support of the new release.
Calling Todd Kessler a singer/songwriter simply wouldn’t do him justice. The rising folk-rock star is the consummate storyteller, with a remarkable ability to take listeners on a winding, wonderful, and introspective journey through the depths of the human experience.
