Volary: The Light – New Album Release Show
with Magik*Magik Orchestra and Guest Vocalists
Sunday, October 16 | 7pm
Volary: The Light – New Album Release Show celebrates Australian-born San Francisco-based singer/songwriter Samantha Lien who died in 2013. At her death, Lien left behind the makings of what she originally hoped would be her second of many albums. Over the next two years, Lien’s life partner, Alex Kushner, in collaboration with Minna Choi and Magik*Magik Orchestra, completed Volary: The Light, in Lien’s honor. The final album is a powerful emotional journey through a complex musical landscape that bridges rock, classical, and environmental music – a truly unique work that reflects the complexity of life, death, suffering, and hope. It mirrors the complexity that resides within the soul of an artist struggling creatively and physically with the largest of questions.
