Giselle Parker at Cafe Blackbird

May 24 at 8pm
Cafe Blackbird

Giselle’s songs evoke both the joy of childhood and the bitter sweetness of adulthood. The music is deceptively gentle, supporting Parker’s honest, unforced voice and thoughtful lyrics. The songs are driven by piano and guitar with an emphasis on timeless melodies. Parker’s debut release, Old Flame, creates a strong first impression of a songwriter to watch.

Doors are at 6:30pm with seating on a first-come basis.

$10 at the door.
