Poet Gold assembles a fresh new line-up of spoken word and musical artists every fourth Wednesday, at The Falcon Underground.
The Falcon’s highly encouraged donation policy will, of course, support these living artists.
Pianist/Singer, Kiriaki Bozas released her first professionally recorded album in 2009 entitled, “Teacher” with the help of Grammy winning producer, Memo Gil. Kiriaki toured major cities, with a campaign called “I’m on Ellen Truth be Tellin” playing for complete strangers to see whether or not they thought I would be a good guest on the Ellen show.
Kiriaki never appeared on Ellen and suffered a battle with chronic laryngitis. Nevertheless, she was ready to re-enter her music career – releasing her second album, “Me & A Steinway” – a stripped, organic and honest sound.
