Join us for Singer Mali's
Album Release Concert for
Friday, September 22, 2023
Boston-based Singer Mali, of avant-rock band Jaggery, releases her solo album, Lodestone, with a special concert and celebration. Lodestone explores humanity’s dichotomy, the destructive and restorative, love and conflict, individual, familial and societal, and the introspective and external struggles that comprise the wide-ranging aspects of those experiences. All of this is done with the inventiveness Mali is known for through blending and juxtaposing the familiarity and accessibility of pop music with elements more often associated with jazz, classical, musical theater, world music, and the avant-garde.
For this concert, Mali will be joined by Jaggery bandmates Tony Leva on bass/es, Dylan Jack on drums, and string quartet — Brian Urra and Rachel Panitch on violins, Jaggery bandmate Rachel Jayson on viola, and Michael Frontz on cello.
Writer, musician, and Cambridge treasure Charles Coe opens the night with songs, poems and prose, “writing like a man with polished wings, flying above it all while watching the high and low tides of life” (Poet Lore magazine).

Currently, Fuller balances the worlds of performance and education, fulfilling a demanding schedule as both a busy touring and recording artist and a full-time professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
