  • rumerwillisRumer Willis - Over the Love Tour - A Post-Modern Cabaret

    Rumer began singing at the age of 3, performing for her family in their living room. She joined a music conservatory in Idaho at the age of 12 studying opera and then continued her classical training at Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. Lending her talents to various musical theatre productions in high school as well as joining the Jazz Band, her love of music only continued to grow. In 2014 she started a weekly residency at the famed Sayers Club in Hollywood, where she honed her stage presence and sultry vocals. After releasing her cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” on iTunes last year, she took the stage for her Broadway Debut as Roxie Hart in “Chicago.” Most recently she starred in the film adaptation of the Musical “Hello Again” and made her solo cabaret debut at the famed Cafe Carlyle, receiving rave reviews from the NY Times and other publications across the board. She is currently working on her debut album with legendary writer and producer Linda Perry.

    Willis is also an accomplished actor with numerous film and television credits.

    [Rumer Willis is] brilliant…Her set list ranges from classics like Billie Holiday’s sardonic “God Bless The Child” to Amy Winehouse’s haunting “You Know I’m No Good”. Rumer has a powerhouse voice yet she knows how to belt it out in an intimate environment without making your head hurt. And she projects a vulnerability that’s just touching in ballads like “Since I Fell For You”.  -Deadline

    Nightclub singers generally fall into two types: those who study a song and figure out an interpretation, which they superimpose; and those who instinctively dive into the lyrics and live inside them, without overthinking. Ms. Willis belongs to the second group; in other words, she’s a natural.   –New York Times

  • rachel-b-bw-webHailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Rachel B is a driven, passionate and charismatic artist with a unique approach to her blend of Soul, Motown & Pop.

    Her music is true soul empowerment pop, as she likes to call it: It is all about connecting with listeners through playful energy, hints of sass, uplifting melodies, and witty lyrics, not unlike influential performers such as Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerld, and Minnie Riperton.

    Find out more at www.rachelbmusic.com and let the music tell you the rest of this story.

    “Her set was brimming with sass, playful energy and unquestionable talent. One moment she was giggling about ripping pantyhose and teasing her guitar player, next belting out originals “I’m the Boss” and “Vicious”. I’m all about lady-power so needless to say I was into the equally flirty and ferocious set.”  -Carnegie Mellon’s The Cut.
