Featured in NY Times Travel

I got featured in Celestine Bohlen's excellent review of John Graham's trips to Georgia and Turkey in today's New York Times travel section! I had a great time singing Georgian hymns in the ancient kingdom of Tao-Klarjeti and jamming with Reso Kiknadze at Movement Theatre in Tbilisi.

Moved to London

Hi friends, sorry for the brief bout of radio silence. I moved to London in January and am gearing up for the next round of performances! Time to meet new musicians & explore European venues.

In the meantime, I'm volunteering some nights at Vortex out in Dalston. Come hang :)

I will be leaving the US in January to move to London and do work for women's rights. While I am very excited, I will miss New York and the US, so I decided to host a concert to celebrate the musical adventure I have had here. It will be an hour set at Shapeshifter Labs (which, if you don't know, is an amazing place).

Alexander Dubovoy: piano, vocals
Zosha Warpeha: violin, vocals
Andrew Ryan, bass

$8 with student ID; $10 general admission

Zosha Warpeha is a violinist, vocalist, and songwriter hailing from Minnesota and currently residing in Brookyln. Inspired by music from many regions of the world, she performs a range of contemporary and folk styles on a 5-string violin, often letting her voice weave itself in and out the music. Zosha is currently pursuing studies at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music.

Andrew Ryan is a bassist and composer from Denver, Colorado. A graduate of Ithaca College, he is an emerging artist in acoustic music, touring with Juno Award-winning banjoist Jayme Stone in his groundbreaking Lomax Project and rising folk-roots artist Kaia Kater. Andrew is also a founding member of The Freewheel Trio, where he is featured as a singer and songwriter. Andrew currently resides in Brooklyn, where he performs in 21st-century chamber group 9 Horses and continuously strives to make music both eclectic and inclusive.

Back to Brooklyn

Hey folks, after having been in California for a while and playing some in the Bay Area, I've finally wound my way back to Brooklyn. I'm doing some smaller gigs and focusing mainly on other academic, recording, and composition projects. Stay tuned! PS: I'm officially moving to London in January :)

Portraits Drawn Without You is Out!!!

Portraits Drawn Without You is Out!!!

My new solo album is out on Bandcamp! Coming soon to iTunes and streaming.

Recorded by 11-time Grammy-winner Jack Renner in 2016, Portraits Drawn Without You is my first solo album. It features a set of original compositions that I dedicated to my grandmother following her passing in 2015. These deeply personal songs draw from my own life experiences as well as interrogations of historical memory. Each piece is a sort of musical portrait, an act of representation in which the true subject is conspicuously absent. The end effect, I hope, is like that of walking through the halls of a portrait gallery: You know that the figures on the walls know each other, but it is up to you to figure out the story of how.

9/13 8PM Tomi Jazz

Join Hans and Alexander for what might be our last performance in NYC for a little while. We'll be playing a bunch of duo repertoire developed over 4 years of playing together and 2 months of living together in Brooklyn. Also, there's no cover (just a minimum). So, come, bring your friends, and hang with us.
