Concert News By Nina Goodman / December 27, 2018 Photo by Megan LeighThis Friday night, Eli Lev & The Fortunes Found and Hayley Fahey will be ending the year proper at Pearl Street Warehouse. DC Music Review staff are super excited about this show because both of these rising DC artists sound like they were born to express through music. Eli Lev's songs are wise beyond his years (his bio says he's only been a full-time musician since 2016). He has an old soul and his lyrics, cadence, and songwriting sensibilities speak volumes beyond two years. It's clear he cares and honors the time-told tradition of storytelling through music, and listening to his new EP Way Out West, you sense music has been in his bones since birth. Hayley Fahey has a soulful, lyrical voice that mixes country with R&B, folk, and blues. Again, this is an artist that writes and performs way beyond her years, giving hints of Edie Brickell and Bonnie Raitt in both her songwriting and delivery. Her full length 2018 album Out There is impressive, all at once accessible and full of conviction.DCMR staff are excited to experience both of these artists and their bands at their home base and see how they continue to grow into their musical careers.

What sets her apart, in addition to her writing and voice, are her live stage performances.
