The words of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay find new life in an eclectic, sublimely musical melding of folk, bluegrass, rock and jazz.  The brainchild of singer/songwriter Liz Queler (guitar/mandolin) and her pianist/husband Seth Farber, this musical team boasts eight Grammy nominations between them. Rounding out the trio on bass, cajon and vocals, is their 18 year old son, Berklee College of Music freshman, Joey.   With individual credits including appearances at Newport Folk Festival and Carnegie Hall (Liz), Saturday Night Live (Joey) and the conducting podium of numerous Broadway shows (Seth) - their family band presents a truly unique sound and soul. Heavy on harmonies with influences from Appalachia, bluegrass and gospel, their music is infused with a rock sensibility, creating a soulful cross between Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Emmylou Harris and John Mayer.  https://soundcloud.com/liz-queler/sets/the-edna-project

Liz QUeler / The Edna Project
I'm a singer/songwriter from NYC. Looking for some inspiration to break a spell of songwriter's block, I reached for a book of poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Two CDs and a theater piece later, her words have taken me from the Newport Folk Festival to Lincoln Center.
