Jessica Pavone Interview

From Roulette NYC:

Composer/string instrumentalist Jessica Pavone is “one of the busiest young performers on the city’s creative music scene,”. Here at Roulette on Tuesday, November 10th she celebrates the Tzadik release of “Songs of Synastry and Solitude”; a collection of songs for string quartet influenced by an interest in the simple beauty of folk songs, the ghosts of all things lost and Leonard Cohen’s encouragement to live outside this world.
