Mike Geffner’s Inspired Word, one of New York’s most popular indie performance series, presents Soundz & Vibez, spotlighting the best up-and-coming local singer/songwriters.
The night features Ashley Wasser aka WASS, whose sultry indie pop sound, influenced by Lana Del Rey and Lorde, will give you the feels; Boy Pierce, an improv rapper known for his viral mashups, including the Ultimate Seinfeld Tribute, which got him a public shoutout from Costanza himself, actor Jason Alexander; and pop/edm artist Rob Roth, whose dynamic range, unique vocals, and emotional, resonating lyrics will remind you of the Dave Matthews Band, Chainsmokers and Avicii rolled into one. Hosted by spoken word poet Leah V., whose Beat Generation inspired wordplay examines cultural identity and feminism.
Founded/Produced by former journalist Mike Geffner, InspiredWordNYC began in Jan. 2010.
