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:

July 11th songwriters in-the-round with co-host Devlin Miles

Trina Hamlin – combines gentle understanding with raw emotion in a way that is, quite simply captivating from the first note.  With a rich, powerful voice, Hamlin reveals a rare confluence of Midwestern innocence, contemplative focus, and raw passion while adding a disarmingly sharp wit in her stage banter. She seamlessly moves from guitar to piano with self accompaniment on harmonica leaving many who have seen her performance wondering what she can’t do.  Regarded as one of the best harmonica players around she presents a driving, sensuous rhythm in her performance that immediately draws audiences in.

In the current climate of “sounds like” artists and “heard it before” lyrics Trina offers an intelligent and refreshing musical experience. Her unique combination of ballads, folk rock and blues has earned her a steady national following. Trina tours full time through out the US and Europe. Additionally she is a much sought after harmonica player and percussionist, accompanying numerous nationally recognized singer songwriters in the studio and live on stage.

Orly Bendavid – a Brooklyn based, singer/songwriter, and poet. She was chosen to perform on the 2018 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s emerging artist stage, and has opened for folk legends Carolann Solebello, Rachael Kilgour, and Bev Grant. Since 2013, Orly has been a recurring member of the Jack Hardy Song exchange, performing her songs frequently in NYC’s music scene, as well as at several “unplugged” Sofar Sounds shows around the city.

Orly and the Mona Dahls’ first album “Mona” was recorded at Grand Street with producer Huw Price (David Bowie, Primal Scream, Nick Cave, and My Bloody Valentine). Mona is a collection of character portraits, “Christine,” about a washed-up former model encountered at a bar, “String Bean,” inspired by an unknown anorexic teenage,pop star; and “Oh God” delving into the depths of addiction, and the cycle of shame it creates.

August & September songwriters TBA soon
