“Here is a letter from my lonelier self / to the one that’s in love once again / I couldn’t find you so I thought that I would tell / you a few things with my favorite blue pen.” So begins Amber Rubarth’s fifth album, A Common Case of Disappearing. Grand prize winner of NPR’s prestigious Mountain Stage New Song Contest, Rubarth writes songs with a courageous vulnerability so personal that it touches the universal. Produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon), the album debuted at No. 13 on iTunes’ songwriter chart and features duets with Jason Reeves and Jason Mraz.
A musical prodigy as a child, Dave began playing the cello and piano at age three, performed on Broadway and with the Metropolitan Opera at age seven, and debuted at Carnegie Hall at age 15. He is a graduate of Harvard University and the Julliard School’s Doctoral Program.
Dave Eggar has performed worldwide as a solo cellist and pianist. A virtuoso of many styles, Dave has performed and recorded with artists in numerous genres including Evanescence, The Who, Michael Brecker, Josh Groban, Coldplay, Beyonce, Pearl Jam, Fall Out Boy, Dave Sanborn, Kathleen Battle, Ray Lamontagne, Roberta Flack, The Spin Doctors, Dianne Reeves, Brandy, Carly Simon, Phil Ramone, Hannah Montana, Duncan Sheik, Sinead O’Connor, Bon Jovi, Manhattan Transfer, Corinne Bailey Ray and many more.
Dave’s mission to “not just cross over, but to cross through” multiple genres of music are apparent with all of his releases. Whether it’s classical, reggae, bluegrass, jazz, pop, or world music, he finds a common voice within his musical vocabulary and introduces it with his own unique imaginative vision.
Percussionist, song writer, producer Chuck Palmer has performed and recorded with artists including Gil Goldstein, RJD2, Sly Dunbar, Frank Ocean, Lucia Micarelli, Luciano, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Junior Marvin, Alex Skolnick, Phillip Phillips, The City and Horses, Waway Saway and the Talaandig Tribe, and Amy Lee of Evanescence.
