#WomenCrush Music

Kingsley

Growing up in the shadows of Chicago, Kingsley was raised to the rhythms of house music. The third eldest daughter of eight, she demonstrated a strong desire to perform and sing from an early age. She sang before she could talk, belting out Disney tunes and performing for family and friends. She joined the choir when she was 8 and taught herself to play guitar and piano. At age 10 she started a band. Inspired by pop music she began writing and producing her own songs.

It seemed she was destined for the stage, but life had other plans. While Kingsley was dreaming of the pop charts, she was also breaking school records in High Jump - track and field. Offered a sports scholarship she went off to college. To keep her love of music alive she took vocal performance classes, but sports, with its relentless demand for success, threatened her dream.

Then as fate would have it, in her third year of college, Kingsley was diagnosed with a competitive heart condition that ended her track and field days forever. Undeterred, and secretly relieved, she was finally free to devote her full attention towards her true passion. She started an all-female a Cappella group, and developed skills in beat boxing and arranging, graduating with a degree in Vocal Performance and Business Administration.

Straight out of college, Kingsley landed in Portland, Oregon and has been honing her skills and working on her first EP. She’s quickly made inroads with the local music scene and has been performing around town. Kingsley is currently collaborating with a wide range of people to create her style of pop-inspired music that gives her an authentic platform to launch her songs. She is very excited to share her songs with you this coming fall 2017.

Eleanor Dubinsky

“...a joyous, uplifting and deeply generous performance that was just the tonic for the frayed nerves of many New Yorkers after another long winter in these parlous times. Go. See them. This is music as medicine for your soul." - Tom Pryor (Nat Geo Music, Songlines, Afropop Worldwide)

Composing in English, French and Spanish, Eleanor Dubinsky’s music lives at the tender edge where jazz, world, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. Her new record, Soft Spot Of My Heart draws on influences from Latin America, West Africa, jazz and gospel traditions and was premiered to a sold out crowd at Joe’s Pub last April. The album has received favorable praise including airplay and an album review from NPR. Eleanor has performed regularly at Rockwood Music Hall for several years.

Greg Stamper & Soul21 is the primary vocal ensemble at Celebration Spiritual Center. Comprised of a beautiful mix of solo performers, actors, and musicians, this inspired group comes together to create a sound that literally transforms you. Under the leadership of Pastor Greg Stamper, the music has a Contemporary Gospel feel infused with New Thought lyrics that are affirming, uplifting and encouraging.

Since performing together at Joe’s Pub last April, Eleanor, her band members and Greg Stamper & Soul21 have formed a bond of love and mutual support. We invite you to join our musical family at this concert of new music that will send you into the holiday season with a smile on your face and joy in your heart.
