The Island Collective consists of island based singer songwriters and musicians Kate Taylor, Phil DaRosa, David Saw – and Rebecca Correia, who divides her year between New Bedford and Nashville, an accomplished musician with over 200 songs under her belt.
During this performance visuals will be generated by Graham Smith. He pojects original digital art created with live video compositing.
The otherwise (mostly) solo performers united around a vision to perform on a shared stage in Nashville, which they have now done twice. The most recent was in November 2022 to a packed room at the popular venue, Fox and Locke, Liepers Fork, which is known for presenting some of Nashville’s finest talent at their live music shows. The performers are now regrouping to recreate that experience for the first time on Martha’s Vineyard.
The performances this evening will consist of solo’s, a few collaborations, with musicians trading songs and backing each other up.
The Island Collective is working toward performing together in other venues regionally and beyond. A collaborative song, Love is Contagious by Kate Taylor and Rebecca Correia, was released approx. four months ago. http://www.rebeccacorreia.com
