Pianist, Russell Kranes and vocalist, Sol Liebeskind effortlessly meld their shared love for RnB into a sublime musical odyssey that leaves their listeners awestruck. Russell, an accomplished church director and ballet accompanist studied jazz piano under the tutelage of the late, great, Geri Allen. Since arriving to NYC in 2013, he has made a name for himself as an incredibly charismatic, dynamic and in-demand pianist. Sol Liebeskind, who moved from Buenos Aires to NYC in 2015 has one of the most creative and versatile voices on the scene today, drawing clear influence from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway and John Lennon. She has toured Europe, the United States and her native Argentina extensively.The two play a mix of original music and classic RnB standards, hoping to impart spirit and truth to their listeners. Look out for the shared EP they recorded last summer, which will be released later in 2024.
