Eileen Graham with David Daubert and Medlow

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

Eileen Graham

Echoes of the sweetness of Joni Mitchell and the urgency of Alanis Morissette can be found wrapped in Eileen Graham’s wide-ranging voice. But not so fast – this singer-songwriter sings her own song. Her signature fast vibrato, sultry overtones and aching sky-high notes are said to “capture audiences with her pure and emotionally-loaded sound,” (Beyond Race Magazine). Her album, One of Those Girls (2012), is an honest and simply done, piano-driven collection that feels cozy, reminiscent of a cup of tea shared with your best friend. Produced by My Favorite Highway frontman Dave Cook (O.A.R., Paradise Fears), the debut solo journey is colored by delightful hooks and a wash of uncertainty, leaving listeners transfixed. Graham was featured on the premiere webside of Aux Send, landing in the Top 10 of New & Noteworthy Artists on iTunes in 2011, and, in 2014, Graham reached #1 on the regional pop charts.

Low Strung Cellos

“A world away from ... other musical ensembles” - Yale Daily News

Low Strung is a group of twelve classically trained cellists from Yale University who make up the largest all-cello rock ensemble in the world. The group transforms classics of the rock, pop, metal, and blues genres into pieces designed exclusively for the cello. The final product is something that cannot be found anywhere else: music that bursts with the excitement of rock but is executed with the thundering bass and butter-smooth treble of the cello. Their constantly-expanding repertoire spans the gamut from the 1960’s to today, from The Who and Led Zeppelin to Lady Gaga and Imagine Dragons. The sweeping arrangements are also opportunities for unlikely musical encounters: J.S. Bach and Amy Winehouse, Beethoven and The Eagles.

Low Strung debuted at Yale University in 2005, immediately establishing itself as one of the most exciting musical groups on campus. Word quickly spread, and the group’s concerts are now some of the most anticipated events of the year. Low Strung has also become a favorite throughout New England and New York, routinely performing at nightclubs, art galleries, schools, weddings, and other events. Every March the group goes on tour to a different city in the United States.

Ebenezers Coffeehouse and The Brindley Brothers Present an Evening with PENNY & SPARROW

Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke (and band) are traveling across America for an evening of your favorite songs, storytelling, and friendship. Invite your friends, kick back, and enjoy an Evening with Penny & Sparrow.


Penny & Sparrow is American singer-songwriter duo of Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke out of Austin, Texas. Formed in 2011 after living as roommates at the University of Texas, the duo began their musical endeavor as a hobby and creative outlet. Their first tune, “Creature” was recorded in a small apartment behind an orphanage with one microphone and a laptop. “If you listen closely, you can hear kids screaming and laughing in the background of each song,” says Baxter. “After just one song, we knew writing and recording was something we didn’t want to stop doing.” Through the years, Penny & Sparrow has steadily grown both in discography and audience.

While the instrumentation in each of the three released albums (Creature (2011), Tenboom (2013), Struggle Pretty (2014)) may differ, Penny & Sparrow has garnered a reputation of blending sincere lyrics with haunting melodies and harmonies in every song. The raw and emotive quality of their songs has been known to push crowds to near silence for an entire set.

Though most of their recordings are layered with strings and percussion, many fans are surprised to find that Andy and Kyle normally tour with no added instruments – simply two microphones and a guitar. Though there are no added gimmicks on stage, Penny & Sparrow regularly silence crowds not far after the first note is sung. “We like playing as a duo because it’s how each song was first written,” states Baxter.

“Struggle Pretty”, released Spring 2014, is the latest album by Penny & Sparrow. The album was written and recorded inside the East Austin house that Andy and Kyle, along with their wives, lived in together. “Struggle Pretty” is vast with instrumentation and creativity, while still staying true to the harmony-centric roots found in “Creature” and “Tenboom.” Kyle and Andy teamed up with producer Chris Jacobie for the album, who helped capture the spirit and sound of the duo. From the somber “to haunt, to startle,” to the sweeping “Bread and Bleeding,” each song has its own voice within the album. The team began the recording process in September 2013, and finished late February 2014.

“We wanted to record this album in the house we lived in for a lot of reasons,” explains Jahnke. This house is special to both of our families, and we wanted this record to embody that. We want to have our friends come and record during the day and then drink bourbon with us after. Along with that, this house has a very unique sound that we wanted to highlight.” The duo wanted to create a sense of community and camaraderie around the house and music. To involve family and friends both creatively and relationally. The result of the work put in for “Struggle Pretty” was a sincere, inspiring, and exciting twelve-song album.
