My One and Only and Deva Troy with Elena Marino
January 6, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Preservation New Jersey is pleased to present an Americana concert featuring Nashville’s My One and Only to their first appearance at the 1867 Sanctuary. New Hope, PA-based Deva Troy and Elena Marino will open the show.
My One And Only gathers it’s strength from Southern-Soul mixed with Curious-Grit. They’ve honed their sound in individual crucibles on stage, TV, radio, solo recording, engineering and producing. The merger brings true-to-life lyrics that bid you to wander through hidden scenes in their lives – to find heart, emotions, the real. Blanket the raw with hollow-body guitars and home-grown harmonies, and My One And Only’s music cuts through. My One And Only released their debut album The Past Year, produced by Grammy Award-nominated Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes,) and features all original songs by the duo – husband and wife Benjamin and Kassie Wilson. They have played stages throughout the U.S., as well as touring in Uganda, Africa, and have both graced the stage of the famed Ryman Auditorium in their hometown of Nashville.
Although My One And Only may be the latest duo to hit the Americana scene, Kassie and Benjamin are no novices. Kassie moved to Nashville from her home state of Alabama to follow a country music career. During her solo years, Kassie perfected her songwriting and vocal chops. Originally from Iowa, Benjamin pursued music early, then segued to audio engineering and pursuits in Nashville. It was in Music City they met, and melded hearts and music. The union is the centering of Kassie and Benjamin; the result is a remarkable off-center sound right for the time.
My One And Only declares performance as their love-share to the world. “The stories behind our songs make them come alive, and in our live shows, people discover that,” Ben said. Kassie agreed, “We want to share our music and heart with as many people as possible.”
Deva Troy music takes a stand for people, the planet and peace. Her songs are heart opening, inspirational, melodic, toe tapping and thought provoking. Her albums are available at www.store.cdbaby.com
Elena Marino will join Deva on vocals. Elena is a talented, seasoned performer, currently in “ Paper Moon,” a Jazz Trio, featuring songs from multiple decades.
