Hello friends and followers,
I’m in a cover band now. Turns out I can sing. Please come to our very first show at one of my very favorite venues in DC. All Her Muses featuring cover songs by Natalie E. Illum and The Grey A first full-length show will be The Fridge on JULY 9 with special musical guest Nancy Eddy (of the Pushovers). Doors 7:30pm. $10. We are all so excited to sing for you.
Grey and Natalie met in mid 2014 and immediately found a wealth of common music loves between them and a mutual talent. They quickly discovered there was a special blending their voices could achieve and All Her Muses was quickly built. Their first performance on July 9th at The Fridge DC is not to be missed and has been months in the crafting. Be sure and reserve your tickets today.
