Burton is notable as one of very few openly gay musicians in jazz history, and has stated that his coming out in his 40s had no adverse consequences for his career as he had feared.

She’s a frequent contributor to the Bushwick Book Club, a monthly musical performance series in which a curated group of musicians read the same book, write a song about it and perform the song at a public show.

She's releasing a new album, The Fastness, in June 2018.

In the daytime hours, she's the Development Director of Musicambia, an organization that creates humanizing experiences in prisons through regular music education."
Benjamin Cartel
Benjamin Cartel
Benjamin Cartel is no stranger to making music that quickly connects with its listeners. That’s something he’s always excelled at, first with the substantial attention and acclaim accorded his duo Kaiser Cartel, and then, with a return to his solo career. To date, the latter has yielded two highly acclaimed efforts, an EP called Money and Love and a full length outing entitled Gothenberg, each of which helped broaden his reputation while underscoring his obvious ambitions.

“Benjamin Cartel’s songs can often conjure the same subliminal tension as that of a Randy Newman or John Prine” -.American Songwriter

With Cartel’s upcoming release, Flickering Light, he moves the needle even further, opening up a sonic palette that not only reflects his expansive musical vision, but also reflects his attention to craft and detail through astute, articulate arrangements and a sound that’s both stirring and sublime. Co-produced by longtime colleague Mike Cohen and recorded at Trout Studios in Brooklyn (home to recordings by Evan Dando and Joan as Police Woman) and Flower Studios in Minneapolis (which birthed records by The Replacements and The Jayhawks), the new album found Cartel intimately involved in every detail of the process. With Cartel playing guitar and drums, Cohen contributing guitar and Kieran Mulvaney anchoring the proceedings on bass, the results verify that fact that Flickering Light is easily Cartel’s greatest achievement yet.

Then again, Cartel felt a decided connection to each of these songs, most of which were written and accumulated over the past few years. “When I write, I like to have a story to write about,” he insists. “I often take my inspiration from things that friends of mine have experienced. Then I’ll write the song from a first person point of view and create a lyric that’s completely direct. Other times I’ll take my own experiences and share them though a song. Either way, I see myself as a storyteller, and while the narrative may not always be completely literal, I do try to interpret the events with some imagination and put myself in the center of the song.
