Amelia Robinson is at it again.
The multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter has her feet firmly planted in two worlds, creating music for adults and kids alike.
Robinson is ready to showcase a series of her sparkling new songs for her forthcoming adult album, and you’re invited to be in the audience.
On Friday, March 31 at 7pm, Park Slope’s Old Stone House will host her live album recording. She will then use the material for a future release.
Robinson was chuffed by the experience she had last year after offering up her album The Space Between last Spring.
“I loved the energy of our CD release party last year,” she told Brooklyn Pulp. “It was at the same venue with such a warm and encouraging crowd and even support from local businesses. [Two Boots and Acme Wine]”
The approach to this album also provides an opportunity to vary her process while she’s currently in the studio recording her third kids’ album under her well-known moniker Mil’s Trills.
“I thought this would be a great way to capture the essence of these songs in an innovative way that wouldn’t give me too much of a headache,” she said. “I have a history of recording two albums at once and so thought this time I’d spice things up and try a new approach.”
Robinson, a Brooklyn-bred Park Slope neighbor, is known for her vivacious live performance, as evidenced by her Winter Bash which took place earlier this year at ShapeShifter Lab.
Luckily, we didn’t have to wait to see her perform locally after her gig was canceled last weekend due to the fire which took place at nearby Union Hall. No one was hurt in the incident, however, it is still unclear when the bar/restaurant/bocce courts/live performance space will reopen.
Tickets for Robinson’s Friday show are free and she hopes you’ll be part of the experience.
“I love connecting with people and making memories together,” she said. “This felt like a great opportunity to do just that.”
You can also catch her at Knitting Factory Brooklyn on Wednesday, April 5 along with Stills, Theresa Rosa, and Robinson’s frequent collaborator, Katie Mullins. Tickets for that show are available here.
