Raised in the heart of New York City by two accomplished musical parents, singer-songwriter Sophie first set foot in the studio at four. She caught the harmony bug and began working extensively as a child jingle singer, featured on many TV/radio spots from GE and Hess Trucks to Six Flags and the Kidz Bop CD series. In 2008 she was accepted into the Berklee College of Music in Boston and began to write her own songs. She joined Berklee’s celebrated Gospel Choir and the Motown ensemble, and fell in love with collaboration. She began steadily writing and performing, often alongside her father, David Buskin. A decade later, Sophie is based in Brooklyn and regularly appears at venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, the Red Lion, and Pete's Candy Store. She has performed with Judy Collins, Mason Jennings, Little Anthony, Livingston Taylor and Paul Schaffer. Her first CD, “Sweet Creature”, produced by Jagoda and Neale Eckstein, is available on her website: www.sophiebuskinmusic.com
Freebo, Kirsten Maxwell, and Alice Howe are three award-winning singer-songwriters joined together out of their shared love of harmony.
Freebo (Los Angeles, CA) is best known as a world-renowned bassist (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Ringo Starr, Maria Muldaur, Dr. John, and many others). Rising star Kirsten Maxwell (Nashville, TN) has opened for such notable artists as Melissa Etheridge, Tanya Tucker, and Judy Collins, who praised Maxwell’s talent, calling her voice “beautiful” and “unusual”. With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice, 2019 New Folk Finalist Alice Howe (Los Angeles, CA), has just released her much-anticipated debut album, Visions, produced by Freebo. American Blues Scene writes about Alice, “Sometimes we’re lucky enough to catch an up-and-coming artist as they fly into our radar. This is one of those times.” FREEBO, MAXWELL, & HOWE promise a memorable evening of music bringing together a folk-rock-blues legend and two young artists becoming well-known in the national folk scene.
"When these three get together, prepare yourself for an extraordinary evening of song and smiles, and maybe a tear or two. Powerful songwriting combined with mesmerizing vocals, outstanding musicianship and a palpable camaraderie make for an experience unsurpassed on the contemporary acoustic scene!” - Ron Olesko, Folk Music Notebook, WFDU-FM
