Frances Ruffelle

Frances Ruffelle

Frances Ruffelle’s voice sounds like diamond dust: just so pretty and so gritty that you could listen to it sparkle roughly for hours.

Christine Andreas

Barbara Brussell

Don’t Tell Mama Friday October 20, 7:00 pm Los Angeles-based singer in a far-too-rare New York appearance.
