Live Music Sunday: Maitri and Leffie Louise
Open to the public and FREE.
Translated from Sanskrit, Maitri (”my tree”) is an unconditional friendship and acceptance towards oneself that in turn extends to the greater outside world and its people. This group was formed by Caroline Davis (voice/woodwinds) to embrace both the hardship and ecstasy of life through song, and it is now a collective songwriting outlet for both her and Ben Hoffmann (voice/keyboards).
Incorporating a heavy dose of soul and R&B, Maitri also draws upon indie influences to create a unique sound in the Brooklyn musical landscape. The group also features Jay Sawyer (drums) and Sam Weber (bass).
Leffie Louise is the soundchild of Michigan native Levi Capper. His music is cerebral and ambient folk; an earthly expression of his celestial musings. The sound is melody-driven, and has an emotional quality that painfully desires change.
