NYC artists on the rise: Abby plays Spike Hill on 02.11

NYC artists on the rise: Abby plays Spike Hill on 02.11

Brooklyn artist Abby (born Abby Payne) is a whirlwind of talent. Her melodic, textured arrangements perfectly suit her voice (soft and yet full of raw emotion), rendering her songs interesting and emotional at once. "All These Years" is a strikingly beautiful dreamy folk pop track reminiscent of early Suzanne Vega, while "The Prophet" ventures into foot stomping territories. "Try Try Try" is likely to induce smiles and head bobs, the catchy beats and inspired lyrics making this one of Abby’s best. Both her EPs, the 4-song "In A Pretty Box" and the 5- song "Sasquatch" are available on iTunes. And on Friday, February 11th Abby is playing at Williamsburg venue Spike Hill. The show is 21+, the cover is only $6 and she has the stage from 9:00-10:00. - Leah Tribbett
