WBUR Tiny Desk finalist and 2018 Passim Iguana Fund recipient Corey Laitman has released Seafoam, their lush and lyrical sophomore album, ushered into the world with a sold-out show at The Parlor Room in Northampton, MA. Produced by Mark Miller and Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist Anand Nayak, Seafoam boasts 13 expertly crafted alternative folk-pop ballads with hushed, spiritual undertones.
Laitman’s music is set apart by its layered, poetically conceived narratives that surprise and disarm. The complexity of the songs on Seafoam inspire repeated listening: They are protective of their vital mystery, present in their comfort.
Nayak colors the album with electric guitar, banjo and mandolin arrangements as generous and soaring as the songs themselves.

NYC based singer/songwriter Kimberly Townsend’s lyric-driven, emotive songs captivate, inspire, and console. A blend of folk, soul, and indie pop, Townsend’s sound is often compared to Brandi Carlile and Sara Bareilles. Through a powerful songwriting lens and strong, expansive vocals, she offers an earthy, visceral, intimate spin on telling a story through song.
Townsend’s songs explore vulnerability, pain, and how this life feels. She writes to heal and ground herself, and she shares them to make you feel things. Her most recent work explores the weight of getting lost and feeling stuck, and the empowering release that comes from finding one’s way again.
Townsend’s debut album, The History and the Heart of It, released on January 18, 2019.
