Abby Posner with James Lee Baker

February 17 @ 8:00 pm MST

Abby Posner has been a working musician in Los Angeles for the past 18 years. She is best known for her ability to play nearly any instrument that she can get her hands on, twisting genres, and pushing the boundaries of folk, roots, electronic, and pop music making her “Genre Fluid.” If you have seen Abby perform live, you know she can play a mean lead-blues guitar solo, or throw down a complex Earl Scruggs banjo riff. You also may have spotted her playing drums, mandolin, or bass while using her looping pedal. In addition to her versatility, she puts passion and soul into everything she does.

This CalArts music graduate Posner has scored the music for multiple films (Across Land Across Sea, Through Their Eyes, award winning short animation Elizabeth Sees, and recently scored the Award-winning Documentary Lady Buds) while playing and touring all over the US. In 2019 Posner played banjo and sang Wagon Wheel as a featured principal role in Bank Of America’s ad campaign for the Ken Burn’s PBS Country Music Documentary.

Posner appeared in two episodes of GLEE on season four playing banjo and guitar, and the Freeform show Famous In Love playing banjo, as well as performing live several times on KCAL 9 news and Good Day LA. She has opened for such iconic acts as PHRANC, Sierra Hull, and Dustbowl Revival. She has released multiple albums under her name Abby Posner, and under Abby & The Myth, and will be releasing two records with Blackbird Music Label in 2023.

In 2020 Abby Posner won the Carl Gage “Give me Shelter in Place” Songwriting Award through the Topanga Folk Festival for her original song Blind Spots, and she received the runner up for her song Emergency Use Only for the 18th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards. She was honored to land an Official Showcase at Folk Alliance International in 2022.

​Posner is an official Showcase Artist at Americana Fest 2023, and her music video Quiet On Sunset was recently featured on CMT.

About James Lee Baker

An ideal artist for listening rooms and intimate venues, James Lee’s songs are lyric and story forward with soaring vocals reminiscent of Cat Stevens or Ellis Paul and melodic finger-style guitar playing in the vein of John Gorka or David Wilcox. His songs center around themes of beauty in paradox, spirituality without dogmatic boundaries, the tender heart of the human condition, and the importance of family and virtue.
