On Thursday, September 18th, 2008 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert in our series Long Island’s Own with singer/songwriters Lucky 13 featuring Marci Geller, Cathy Kreger and Susan DeVita.
Bucking with tradition and genre specific bounds, Marci Geller, Cathy Kreger and Susan DeVita offer an array of blues infused folk songs, witty, dark pop ditties, acoustic ballads that stir the soul and jazz inflected soundscapes that will mesmerize the listener. Each artist not only brings their unique voice and songwriting skills, but their perseverance, positive energy and diligent work ethic.
Armed with an acoustic guitar and a voice as clear as cool water, Cathy Kreger delivers more pure music per minute than a bevy of roadhouse rockers. Her irresistible voice and guitar has earned her a place on stage with world-class acts, including: Bonnie Raitt, David Bromberg, Patty Larking, Taj Mahal and Aztec Two-Step. Kreger turns folk, rock, blues, and pop influences into a lyrical and melodic style that is as passionate as it is polished.
Singer/ songwriter Marci Geller has a lofty resume. Highlights include performances on Live! With Regis and CNN Worldbeat. She has toured domestically with her band and internationally as the opener and back-up vocalist for Ritchie Blackmore’s group Blackmore’s Night. Her emotionally raw music can be heard in soundtracks on MTV, VH1, PBS, ABC Family, Discovery Channel and others. Her passion and tenacity have forged a distinct niche in the independent music arena, resulting in her being named one of the “Top 10 Best Singer/ Songwriters” by Independent Songwriter Magazine.
As a young girl Susan DeVita fell in love with music while dancing away the Brooklyn afternoons to Beatles records and Sousa marches. Her unique voice and songwriting talents earned her a production contract with legendary record producer Arif Mardin. She was subsequently signed by Paul Atkinson to RCA Records. After taking a heartfelt sabbatical, Susan has returned to recording and performing with refreshed passion, energy and a cache of exciting new material.
