Based in New York City, vocalist, cellist and guitarist Eleanor Dubinsky appears with her six-piece ensemble (drums, bass, guitar, keys and backing vocals), presenting an engaging blend of World, Jazz, Latin, Rock and Pop music met with emotionally forthright songwriting - performed in English, Spanish and French.
“Vocalist Eleanor Dubinsky is slowly, but steadily, building a body of work that consists of elegant and thoughtful songwriting that slides easily between genres and geography through top-notch musicianship, all in service to a voice that stopped me in my tracks when I first heard it.”
— Felix Contreras (NPR)
Eleanor Dubinsky is a "multi-lingual musician who can capture the emotions and soul of a community in song." (Felix Contreras, Alt.Latino co-founder and host). A vocalist, guitarist and cellist whose music lives at the tender edge where jazz, world, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. Born in St. Louis and based in New York City, her sound reflects and celebrates both her mid-western roots and the formative time she has spent throughout her life in South America, Western and Central Europe, and most recently, in Portugal and Cape Verde.
The polygot composes in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, bringing her linguistic and cultural literacy into dynamic compositions exploring the fragile links between human emotions and responsibility. Eleanor takes to heart her chosen roles as composer, bandleader, cultural interpreter and activist. Her lyrics about self-discovery as well as issues of immigration and contemporary politics create a lively, inviting sound that builds bridges between diverse audiences.
Eleanor's music has been featured on NPR, MTV, Lifetime and Animal Planet; ads for American Express; and on radio stations through the world. Her global appearances include the Lincoln Center's Boro Linc: La Casita festival, the 4+4 Days in Motion festival in Prague, the Philadelphia International Festival for the Arts, the Puerto Morelos Music Festival (Mexico), and headlining concerts in Costa Rica, Portugal, France, Mexico, Cape Verde and Senegal. She and her ensemble regularly perform in New York City.
