Live From The Vault: Songwriter Sessions at Putnam’s Pub & Cooker

419 Myrtle Ave. X Clinton Ave.

Downstairs at Putnam’s in the Coal Vaults

Brooklyn Indie Artists & Songwriters – Devlin Miles and Carolann Solebello are collaborating to launch:

Live from The Vault: Songwriter Sessions

A curated night of songs with 3 songwriters to be performed in-the-round in the unique coal vaults, downstairs at Putnam’s Pub & Cooker. This intimate evening will be hosted once a month on every 2nd Thursday for 1 year.  A special look behind-the-song as each songwriter will introduce a song and welcome on-the-spot collaboration or sing-a-longs from the other songwriters on the panel and the audience.

*This series will sell out, as it is an intimate Speakeasy kind of place, with limitied space. TICKETS REQUIRED, taking place in the Coal Vaults underneath Putnams Pub & Cooker.  “We couldn’t have found a better place to experience where the song babies come from, as we mine for the diamonds!”  Devlin Miles

We strongly encourage you to purchase the subscription to the year long series to secure the bookings of great songwriters and support the monthly series.

Subscription saves you 10% on ticket prices and entitles you to 1 free “songwriter-of-the-month” beverage or drink of your choice

This month’s songwriters:

June 13th songwriters in-the-round with Carolann Solebello

Karyn Oliver  Karyn Oliver is part Joan Osborne, a touch of Janis Joplin and a bit of Emmylou Harris – effortlessly oscillating from bluesy to country and back. Her musical inspirations come primarily from the eclectic mix of music to which she was exposed while growing up in the musically diverse culture of Washington, D.C. 

In 2009, Karyn moved to a town called Boring, MD with a broken heart and a cheap guitar. It was from this place that she created her first solo album, Red Dress, that earned her Kerrville New Folk Finalist and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist in 2011, as well as 2010 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest winner. In 2011, Oliver moved to New York City, with a renewed heart and a better guitar. It is from this place that she created her latest solo album, Magdalene, and became a Kerrville New Folk Finalist for a second time in 2016. 

2017 brought Oliver to North Carolina, where she is steeping herself in the great writers of the South, and recorded a new album, “A List Of Names”.

Paul Sachs  Paul Sachs writes lyrical and gritty  songs. Born and raised in New York City. Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Springsteen are the songwriters that influenced him, and pushed him into the folk music circles of the city. In 2013 he won the prestigious New Folk Songwriter’s contest at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas.

Sachs still lives in NYC, performing in various venues around the city. He has recorded five independent albums, featuring raw and seeringly personal songs of life and love on the mean streets. His fingerstyle guitar work and powerful voice combine to create mesmerizing vignettes. His CD, “Oil Town” was named one of the top folk albums in 2011 on both the Folk DJ list and Roots Music Report. Sing Out magazine states: “Song after song he creates some lovely melodies. The cuts on “Oil Town” involve those challenged by love, by work, and the struggles created by economic imbalance…This is a keeper, and its excellence grows on you.”
