Rorie Kelly, Eric Jay and Carla Ulbrich
August 31, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey invites you to a night of original music! Carla Ulbrich, Rorie Kelly and Eric Jay will share their songs in the round.
CARLA ULBRICH is a comical singer-songwriter and guitarist whose biggest musical influences were (and still are) Sesame Street, camp songs, and cat food commercials. She has a love of the absurdities of ordinary life, a somewhat twisted viewpoint, and a way with words. Carla has been performing since the late 90s, playing in venues small and smaller, from the Avalon Clothing Optional Folk Festival (took the clothing option) to MENSA to DragonCon to the Bluebird Cafe. Carla has appeared as a musical guest on the TV shows “The Revolution” (canceled) and “Up All Night with Rhonda” (canceled). Walk, don’t run, and look both ways before crossing, then go hear Carla before the venue she is playing in closes up shop.
RORIE KELLY makes ladybeast music. Her life’s mission is to create music that inspires others to love themselves fiercely and become their own heroes. Rorie’s empowerment anthem “If You Teach a Bird to Sing” led her to perform the Obama White House and earned her a top 10 staff pick from WFUV’s John Platt. Her new single Alternative Facts is about raising your voice and resisting, and will be part of a larger forthcoming album called Shadow Work.

ERIC JAY is a Long Island born-and-bred musician with over 30 years of guitar playing and 24 years of songwriting experience under his belt. After meeting and marrying his Jersey Girl, he is now a converted Eagles fan (pre-Super Bowl win) and enjoys life in the Garden State as well as the occasional adventure in Bucks County. In 2014, Eric had the honor of recording his first EP at the famed Electric Lady Studios in NYC – setting an occupancy record on one track for most singers ever packed into Studio A (Legend has it that they held up Bono, who was reportedly pacing in the next room).
