Eugenia Elliot releases her first solo CD
Eugenia Elliot, of The Teflons and the Linda M. Smith band, is hosting a CD release concert at 2 p.m. July 22nd at the SPACE in Evanston, 1245 Chicago Ave. Tickets are $5 for children under 12 and $10 for adults.
Since moving to Chicago in 1991 from the east coast, Eugenia has made her mark on the Chicago music scene in a wide variety of musical genres that include vocal jazz standards, bluegrass, old time country and popular contemporary music. Eugenia has not only performed in many well known Chicago venues but has been successful in the realm of studio recording including demo and album work.
Like many of her generation struggling to get a solid foothold in the business, Elliott has held down a variety of “day jobs” including those as a clinical social worker and massage therapist. She feels there is a symbiotic bond between the two professions and music in that all are dedicated to relationships, communication and, in a sense, healing.
This CD release concert will showcase songs from her new album of originals. Joining her will be Steve Dawson and Rob Newhouse on guitar, Linda M. Smith on piano and vocals, Melanie Budd on vocals and flute, Robert Arendt on drums and percussion, John Abbey on bass and
Jordi Kleiner on violin.
