NYC's American Folk Art Museum at 2 Lincoln Square - which runs the Free Music Fridays series (hosted by Lara Ewen) - is releasing a compilation CD and is holding a release party this Friday, from 5pm.
The physical CD (no online release is planned) will be for sale for just $5 from the museum store, and comprises 16 tracks. A number of the contributing artists will perform on Friday:
5:15 Karen Dahlstrom 5:30 Shannon Pelcher 5:45 Sean Lee 6:00 Lara Ewen 6:15 Lily Neill 6:30 (set break) 6:45 Julia Barry 7:00 Robert German 7:15 Jessi Robertson 7:30 Justin King 7:45 The Tres Amigos
I first met Grace London last year, when she was singing with local rocksters Residual Kid, who played Harris Radio's birthday show - and blown away I was. But writing, performing and recording her own music was in her future, and it is now in the present, with a debut EP, and an upcoming show to release it - and for a great cause too. Indie Sounds caught up with Grace for all the news.

Grace London: I just finished my EP, Rocketship Girl, and I am doing a release party to, well, release it and sell it for the first time! It's an early evening event at a new restaurant on Congress called Swift's Attic. Les RAV is also performing, and all the information is here.
