A singer-songwriter from Denton and a Fort Worth front woman will join to play an small show in Dallas on Friday for the fourth installment of the new live music series, ArtCon(cert) from Art Conspiracy.
Kaela Sinclair, a 24-year-old musician from Denton and special guest Rachel Gollay, the 28-year-old lead singer and guitarist of Fort Worth’s Gollay, will perform together from 7-10 p.m. at the Kirk Hopper Fine Art Gallery.
Sinclair released her debut album, “Sun & Mirror” in 2013 to widespread, positive reception from local and national critics, who connected her sound and style to Sarah Jaffe and Regina Spektor. Coincidentally, Sinclair has collaborated with acclaimed producer and drummer, McKenzie Smith, who has worked with both Jaffe and Spektor as well as Midlake and St. Vincent.
Watch Sinclair’s video for her single, “Original Sin”:
Rachel Gollay will join Sinclair on stage, bringing her own local credibility and acclaim. Her debut record, “Built For Love” was named Best Local Album last year by music critic, Preston Jones of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. In addition to Gollay’s namesake band, she also plays with Un Chien, the city’s psychedelic rock outfit.
Here is Gollay performing “Built For Love” at the Kessler Theater in December.
For ArtCon(cert), the band or musicians are chosen for each traditional living-room show by Art Consipiracy’s roster of alumni. The concerts, which have featured Telegraph Canyon and The Theater Fire in the past, are held quarterly in a different local, unique and intimate space for each occasion.
The Kirk Hopper Fine Art Gallery will be capped at 100 people, so grab your tickets soon. They can be purchased for $10 here.
