On Sunday, Feb. 25th at 7:30pm, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza (Jane Park) performs with Vietnamese American poet Duy Doan, and transgender singer-songwriter and poet Skylar Kergil at the Burren in Somerville. All three artists are united by a desire raise the visibility of marginalized voices, and use their art to connect to audiences who wish to experience a wide range of perspectives. Tickets are $12 advance/$16 at the door and can be purchased here:

Born in Texas, Duy is the author of the forthcoming collection We Play a Game, winner of the 2017 Yale Series of Younger Poets Prize. A Kundiman fellow, he received an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he serves as director of the Favorite Poem Project. Duy loves cats, soccer, and dance.

Skylar shares his stories through simple progressions and complicated lyrics. According to Billboard, he is one of eleven transgender and non-binary musicians to keep an eye on, writing that his music has a folk sound that sends a statement. He is a Boston native, often found nearby cats or listening to the lives of queer youth.

Boston-based, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza is an alum of the All Together Now performance series, producer of Ladies Coverband Night, and focuses her local shows on raising the visibility of women and minority performers. She is currently working on her second album and her first set of tours, which are planned for February, April, and June of 2018. For more information, please email

1/4/2017 PA’s Lounge

Start the year off right with a nice little show put on by WEMF! Wednesdays at PA’s are one of the rare chances we as songwriters have to play solo, be experimental, and to meet other local songwriters.

Join us for the laid back, acoustic sing-alongs of Henry Glitter; original folk-pop of Amanda Picciche (In Ivy); alt-country inspired, confessional music of Poor Eliza; songs of biting commentary and satire by Will Roos; and original blues rock by touring songwriter Zeke Duckworthy, who is promoting his full-length album “Bad Road Trip.”

WEMF is one of the few artistic organizations that will book a night like this, and I’m so grateful. Many thanks to Heather Timmons for booking me! Now….what kind of weirdness will we have ready for you?

Press Release (Long Form):

On Thursday, November 3 at 6:00-8:30 PM, Thunder Road (375 Somerville Ave in Somerville) hosts local songwriters Poor Eliza, Victoria Rios, Jocelyn Limmer, and Small City Mayor. Thunder Road is the new rock venue in Union Square and is handicap accessible with a single occupancy bathroom on the entry level. The doors and kitchen open at 5pm and tickets are $10. Purchase tickets here:

Small City Mayor is the new indie rock project of Bredon Jones and Miriam Keller (formerly of Last to Show First to Go). Layering electric guitars & ukulele, trumpet, and harmonized vocals, they build beautiful and often haunting songs of politics, protest, and culture wars.

Jocelyn Limmer has been a songwriter for thirteen years and a *mostly* recovering perfectionist for five. Says Jocelyn,” For me, music is all about embracing uncomfortable emotions or life situations—on good days, with a sense of humor. Some of my favorite artists are Elliott Smith, Amanda Palmer and old-school Sia. (Also, if you haven’t listened to Mary Lambert, you should probably go do that right now!).”

Victoria Rios is a singer-songwriter born and raised in the wild west of  San Francisco California, and a descendent of a world renowned Romani (Gypsy) Flamenco family (great-niece of Diego del Gastor, the daughter of Agustin Rios de Morón, and a relative of many other notable Flamenco artists). Treading these two worlds, her own unique style emerged. Distinctly Romani and  distinctly San Franciscan, her songs are made out of sparkling, finger-picking guitar,  soulful and powerful vocals, insightful lyrics, and Flamenco’s  commitment to honoring stark vulnerability and pure unfiltered feeling.

Poor Eliza (formerly Bitch Trifecta) is Jane Park’s singer/songwriting project. “The first time I heard Elliott Smith’s “Waltz #2 (XO), I had to learn how to play the guitar. These past eight years of songwriting have been a roller coaster of finding my voice and practicing the guitar. I try to be a little wreckless when I perform, but I also love the quiet moments. I hope it makes the audience feel like we’re in this together.”
