Kimberly Hawkey is a singer, dreamer, lyricist and song revivalist, from New York State.  Floating between New York City, the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains, she paints a time-defying soundscape using her crystal-clear voice across familiar and original melodies; at times soaring and whimsical; at times brassy and witty - but rarely without an element of surprise.  A modern experience of new and old, audiences can expect to hear a thoughtfully curated blend of vaudeville, hot jazz, folk music, cabaret and contemporary jazz flowing seamlessly through the ages.

Born and raised in Israel, Assaf Gleizner has been working as a composer, MD, orchestrator, and arranger both in NYC and around the world for the past 10 years. Some of Assaf's favorite credits include Stephen Schwartz's 70th Birthday Celebration (with Renée Fleming, ATC Judge Andrew Lippa, and TONY® Winners Lindsay Mendez and Ben Platt), composing the original scores of KatdashiansFriends: The Musical ParodyFull House: The Musical Parody, and the highly anticipated The Office: The Musical Parody.  Mr. Gleizner also served as arranger and orchestrator for Arts for Autism, a benefit at the Gershwin Theatre, featuring TONY®-winner Kelli O'Hara (The King And I, Bridges of Madison County, Cosi Fan Tutte), Julia Murney (Wicked) and Christopher Jackson (Hamilton).
