Songwriter Showcase Series: Jessye DeSilva & Michael Boezi

May 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

This is the fourth show of my monthly residency at The Square Root in Roslindale, where local songwriters and performers present original songs in a stripped-down, low-key format. The focus is on songcraft and community – bringing people together in a safe, intimate setting for a set of enjoyable evenings once/month.

Next up is Jessye DeSilva (they/them), who weaves tapestries of witch pop and 70s folk rock with their empathetic moral fiber, strengthened by the radical honesty that grounds their buoyant melodies. Rich with resilience and compassion, DeSilva centers their craft around community, reaching out from behind the piano to share their uplifting spirit with listeners. As American Songwriter explains in 2021’s “10 LQBTQ+ Artists You Should Know,” “Pain hangs off their lips, fueling them to greater, more soaring heights.”

About the series: Each night of the residency, I perform a solo set of original songs – and feature a guest songwriter/performer to perform a set too. These guests are curated from the diverse creative talent we have here in the local Boston music scene – some of the best and/or most promising local songwriters.
