Music: Singer-songwriters Anne Marie Menta, Shellye Valauskas, Lys Guillorn, Kierstin Sieser trade tunes Fri., Apr. 5

The singer-songwriters Anne Marie Menta, Kierstin Sieser, Lys Guillorn, and Shellye Valuaskas trade off songs Friday, Apr. 5, at Best Video Performance Space. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is a sliding scale of $5-10 (pay what you can in that range).

Anne Marie Menta is a longtime New Haven singer songwriter working on her fourth album. Personal meets universal in her lyrical, catchy, folk/pop/country influenced tunes.

Shellye Valauskas writes meticulously crafted power pop songs that shimmer and shine; think Rasberries/BigStar/Posies/dB’s/Slight R.E.M. Listen to her latest release “History of Panic” and try not to fall in love with it.

Lys Guillorn is a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and discipline-hopping artist from Shelton, CT.She is a stylistic shape shifter, dipping her blue cowboy boots in folk and psych-rock. Her most recent release is the single “Chipped Fingernails.”

Kierstin Sieser is lead vocalist and songwriter from Tiny Ocean, whose music is part dreamy Americana, part strange folk rock and a little psychedelia.
