Ilene Weiss


Superb songcraft. Serious and funny, sometimes simultaneously. Strong rhythmic acoustic guitarist. Unpretentious, expressive vocalist. Party trick: Philly-bred white chick can freestyle. Part-time straight job: Musical goofball in NYC hospitals.


Influenced by and swimming in the same zeitgeist as classic songmakers of many eras, from Beatles to Broadway, from James Brown to Jonathan Richman, from Joni Mitchell to Talking Heads. Etcetera etcetera etcetera.
