CONCERT

Keepsake House Presents: Lighting Sparks

Find inspiration in a Brooklyn loft as summer arrives. Keepsake House resident songwriter Morninglory, resident storyteller David Glover, and singer/songwriters AERI and Frank Bell will meet in the round to perform and discuss their writing processes at the cozy Super Secret Arts in Gowanus this June. What makes a story or a song? How do writers know when a work is finished? And where does inspiration spark? Swing by for a jolt of creativity and to brighten your night. There may or may not be lamps on stage.

 

Keepsake House is the listening room that takes you behind closed doors with independent artists.

Morninglory

Accomplished vocalist, actor, and writer, Livvy Marcus performs atmospheric folk music under the name “Morninglory,” her legal middle name. Born and raised in southern Massachusetts, Livvy graduated with a bachelor of music from BW Conservatory in Ohio. Her debut album, “Livvy Marcus Eats Her Shoe,” will be released on all platforms in March 2022. She hasn’t gone a day without chocolate since 2018 and would generally always rather be singing. Do you like dancing? Do you sometimes live in the liminal space between giggling and crying?


Morninglory has previously performed in the Keepsake House show Foresight and is a 2022 Keepsake House Artist in Residence.

David Glover

David Glover is an artist drawn to telling needed stories: stories that challenge comfort, question vulnerability, and press at the potent roots of trauma and healing. His artistic body of work centers on identity, history, and home with a focus on the complexity and measures of Black life, love and liberation. 


David Glover has previously performed in the Keepsake House shows From Story to Song and Foresight and is a 2022 Keepsake House Artist in Residence.

AERI

AERI (she/her) is a singer-songwriter who exposes inner dialogues often invisible or silenced, in hopes to foster collective tenderness and healing. AERI’s debut EP—a raw, atmospheric archive of a journey through grief, shame and longing—was featured on Them’s “Best New Music by Queer Artists” and Live Nation’s “One’s to Watch.”

Frank Bell

Originally a classically-trained cellist, Frank Bell later expanded his instrumental arsenal as a way to further express himself as an artist. As an outlet, Frank began posting videos of his songs on YouTube, which brought him international attention and 800,000 video views (in four days) after being featured on their homepage. Shortly after, he flew to Canada to record his debut EP ‘On Passion and Reason,’ a folky, neo-soul acoustic rock album which would later be released independently worldwide with famed Producer Bill Bell (Tom Cochrane, Jason Mraz, and more).

 

In recent years, Frank turned his focus inwards, stripping down his sound and rediscovering the foundation of his passion: connecting with people through song. Spending extended periods of time in NYC, Boston, and at sea, Frank has been hard at work listening, building relationships, and refining his voice to speak to an increasingly diverse and disparate community. Always a heartfelt, insightful lyricist, his next big challenge is finding the words to match the world we live in today.
