SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC! We encourage you to give what you can to support the artists, venue and production crew bringing you these exciting live music experiences!
With a goal of supporting independent artists and venues during this unprecedented time in the music industry, Livestreaming Co-op CouchMusic.Live presents a socially-distanced livestream series featuring some of our favorite venues and artists.
Rooted in her jazz, folk, and opera musical background, Kimaya Diggs has mastered a genre-defying style. Inspired by the acrobatic folk renderings of Joni Mitchell, Ella Fitzgerald’s jazz stylings, and Lianne LaHavas’ soulful charisma, she draws skillfully from her lineage of musical pioneers, creating a musical lane all her own. With a playful presence and frank, transporting storytelling, Diggs’ mastery of her voice is the focal point of each performance, and a transfixing experience.
Kimaya’s debut album, “Breastfed” (2018), is a bittersweet chronicle of growth toward the light. Recklessly urgent, irreverent and defiant in the face of the past, “Breastfed” boldly wrangles the pain and glory of a growing-up narrative, claiming its narrative with spirit and dark humor. The single “How Am I Sposta Know” made the top 10 in tastemaker radio station 93.9 The River’s Best New Songs of 2018.
As a teaching artist and collaborator, Kimaya has captivated audiences around the world with her sister trio, the Diggs Sisters, and Northern Harmony, performing 21 international folk styles in 27 different languages. Kimaya has written soundtracks, libretti, and themes for several plays, operas, and podcasts.
ABOUT THE VENUE
The Shea is a theater which keeps reinventing itself. Established in 1927 by Denis Shea, this up-to-date movie theater was designed in the "Spanish" style so popular in the Hollywood of the twenties. That time is still vivid in the minds of some Turners Falls residents as a time of five cent matinees, movie serials and (in the thirties) dish nights, when you could see a movie and add a piece of "Depression Glass" or china to your table setting. Nowadays, The Shea provides performance space for a variety of attractions designed to appeal to the widest range of tastes. Musical offerings include folk, pop, rock, swing, jazz, country and traditional. Theatrical productions encompass musical comedy, drama, comedy, and political satire. In addition, audiences can take advantage of magic shows, children's shows and silent film revivals.

KEEP IT SAFE
The safety of the artist and venue/production staff are our #1 priority. All CouchMusic.Live shows are socially distanced and follow best practices for preventative measures, such as mask wearing and hand washing. It is our goal to provide artists and venues an opportunity to keep bringing live music to the world while still staying safe. We support common sense safety measures that protect us all and, ultimately, ensure that we can continue to present shows like this into the future.
