About the Musicians:
Cellogram is the polystylistic brainchild of Grammy nominated composing/producing team, cellist Dave Eggar and drummer/programmer Chuck Palmer. Their unique blend of classical music, electronica, and world music has led to original work and collaborative arrangements with artists including Frank Ocean (“Channel Orange”), Amy Lee from Evanescence, Train, Norah Jones, Talib Kweli, Breaking Benjamin, Brett Eldredge, Five For Fighting, Dr. Ralph Stanley and Zayn Malik. Cellogram is fresh off of a 40 show opening slot co-bill tour with Lindsey Sterling and Evanescence, and their recent innovative symphonic and choral collaboration with Mick Jones and the iconic 80’s rock band Foreigner debuted at no. 1 on the US Classical Billboard charts.
Powerhouse recording artist Valerie Ghent wows audiences with her emotive, evocative voice, piano chops to match, and “soul-stirring, uplifting songs full of vitality and joy.” A native New Yorker with a bluesy, funky piano style and a stunning 3 1/2 octave range, it’s no surprise she has toured with music legends Ashford & Simpson and Debbie Harry and performed with artists as diverse as Dr. Maya Angelou, Billy Preston, Iggy Pop and Defunkt. An outstanding live performer, Valerie weaves together blues, soul, R+B, jazz and pop, treating listeners to soulful, romantic, highly melodic music rendered with passion, undeniable skill and a mighty heart.
