Cathedral Arts Live Presents Upstate, a ?Harmonic Maelstrom? of Original Sound -- With an Opening Set from Jersey City?s A Cappella Darlings Cabaret Sauvignon

JERSEY CITY -- Cathedral Arts Live is thrilled to welcome Upstate, an adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock ?n roll, on February 28, 2020, at 7 pm.

Upstate first emerged from New York?s Hudson Valley in 2015 with their critically acclaimed debut, "A Remedy." The Poughkeepsie Journal raved that the group ?need[s] nothing more than their voices to channel rhythm and stoke your emotions,? while The Alt hailed them as ?toe-tapping, contagious, and fun.? The album earned the band festival performances from Mountain Jam to FreshGrass, as well as a slew of national headline dates and support slots with everyone from The Felice Brothers and Phox to Marco Benevento and Cory Henry.

The band features Melanie Glenn, Mary Kenney, and Allison Olender on vocals; Harry D'Agostino on bass, Ryan Chappell on mandolin, and Dean Mahoney on caj?n. Their sound, lineup, and even their name have all undergone dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging and thrilling, those changes have finally culminated in the sextet?s dazzling new album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll.

"Healing" is the band?s first album with new member Allison Olender, their first with four contributing songwriters, and their first since shortening their name from Upstate Rubdown.

?Allison brought this new energy and a fresh perspective,? reflects Mary Kenney. ?She came from this country/folk background as a singer/songwriter, and her presence definitely reinvigorated our musicianship and helped us hone in on where we were going.?

It?s also their first project to be produced by Wood Brothers percussionist Jano Rix, who helped the group embrace their transformation and lean into their unique lineup without sacrificing any of the gorgeous harmonies, eclectic arrangements, and unforgettable performances that have defined the band.

?The last few years have been about learning who we are,? says Upstate bassist Harry D?Agostino. ?We?ve been knocking off milestone after milestone on the road, and as the touring?s snowballed, I feel like we?ve really come into our own. It?s been a process of discovering our identity.?

Kicking off the evening of sweet harmonies is a set by Jersey City?s own Cabaret Sauvignon, a female a cappella quartet beloved for their delightful and engaging performances. Cab Sav?s repertoire covers tantalizing tunes across the decades, from torch to today?s top 40, along with a few original compositions. Their soaring vocals and intimate harmonies bring a fresh spin to old favorites and new depth to today?s hits.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Hot food and cold beverages available for purchase. Doors open at 7 p.m. Visit to purchase tickets.
