Emerging Artist: Gabriel Royal

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Gabriel Royal descended into the New York City subway with a dollar in his pocket and a cello under his arm. To earn some extra pocket change he picked up busking and captivated commuters on the L and G trains. One of those commuters was an artist manager, and in a New York minute Gabriel went from serenading in subterranean tunnels to releasing a debut album and music video directed by Blake Farber (best known for his work with Beyoncé). This Oklahoma-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and cellist plays 'grown up lullabies'. He is influenced by Stevie Wonder’s groove and Burt Bacharach's jazzy yet poppy sensitivities. Gabriel has developed a trademark song-over-cello sound that is perhaps best described as modern chamber pop.

Emerging Artist: Kandace Springs

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Kandace grew up a soul singer in a country-western town. Her dad Scat Springs sang backup for everyone from, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer and Aretha Franklin to Brian McKnight and Michael McDonald.  Her father instilled in Kandace a love of the greats: Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Eva Cassidy, and Luther Vandross. He helped her record a demo at 15 and now, well before the age of 30, her two albums Soul Eyes and Indigo have earned her raves. Within a very short window, she has logged dozens of festival and TV performances including the Late Show with David LettermanJimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. With a lithe, smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano she offers a mix of everything: blues followed by a classical piece, a jazz standard after a Beatles cover. Her artistry swirls classical composition with quiet-storm cool, jazz poise and soulful depth.

Garry Trudeau, social observer and creator of the Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip Doonesbury, has been drawing electoral commentary for nearly a half-century. In those years, he has made no secret of his opinion of Donald Trump, taking him to task in the strip since the 1980s. The comic strip proved exceptionally prescient, and in one installment, Trudeau even predicted Trump’s presidential run.

Emerging Artist: Joep Beving

Live at Benaroya Hall >

After the release of his debut album Solipsism, Joep Beving quickly developed an international following as a classical musician. The 2017 release of Prehension, 85 million downloads on Spotify, and global touring has solidified his place as one of the world’s most popular living pianists. This unassuming Dutch composer's understated, haunting and melancholic playing leaves audiences spellbound and his delicate melodies give goosebumps. “The world is a hectic place right now,” says Joep. “I feel a deep urge to reconnect on a basic human level with people in general ….” Beving’s contemplative neo-classical compositions sooth the soul and serve as the antidote to a world of uncertainty and fear.
