Becca Stevens with special guests Nicholas David and Stephanie Erin Brill
February 16 | 8:00pm
Backstage at the Miller High Life Theatre brings up-and-coming talent to the intimate confines of the historic Plankinton Hall, on the second floor of the Miller High Life Theatre.
Always reaching, always expanding, versatile jazz/folk/pop artist Becca Stevens has been compared to Bjork, St Vincent, Tori Amos, and Joni Mitchell. Frequently collaborating with artists as diverse and talented as Snarky Puppy, David Crosby, and Esperanza Spalding, Stevens is quickly establishing herself on the international music scene as a long-term and important artist for the future.
Best known as a 2012 season finalist on NBC’s The Voice, Nicholas David had, in fact, already published five critically acclaimed albums, experienced national radio airplay, and participated in multiple charity and collaborative projects. Rooted in soul, r&b and rock&roll, David’s music is a fully integrative experience, incorporating multiple genres and influences ranging everywhere from Prince to Beethoven. His powerful voice, enriching lyrics, and liquid piano playing truly set him apart.
Emerging Wisconsin singer/songwriter Stephanie Erin Brill will open the show, in keeping with the goal of always including local artists on shows in the Backstage at the Miller High Life Theatre series. Brill’s piano-based Folk/Pop/Americana complements her dynamic vocals, which can range from rich and powerful to soulful, sweet and fragile.
Time: 8:00 p.m.
