On September 7th, Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn will be transformed by singer/songwriter Maya Solovey into an ambiance and experience entitled "Indian Summer/Harvest Moon". Enjoy the tranquility of summer's transition to fall, and celebrate the beautiful full moon as it nears its equinox -- romantic and soothing. Not only will Solovey perform that night, she will be bringing her own home cooked food. Both the music and delicacies will relate to the "Indian Summer/Harvest Moon" theme. Solovey's menu will include cornbread, her grandmother Babushka's plum jam, and lemonade - all served up on a red and white checkered table cloth.
Solovey will perform at 10:00 p.m.

Commenting on how she selected the theme for that night, Solovey said, "At that time, we'll be holding on to the last grains and cornstalks of summer before we head into fall, so I wanted that night to have a sentimental lazy late summer feel to it. The mood will be soft, soothing, and warm with good old American traditions. And, this will be an opportunity for me to play a lot of songs that I don't usually get to play as all songs performed will be in English." Solovey writes and records in three languages - English, Spanish and Portuguese.

As an international artist and a trilingual songwriter, Maya Solovey has merged the acoustic/folk songwriting tradition into the territories of pop, bossa nova, and even the high drama of cinematic scoring. Her music is a surprising, yet rational marriage between many cultures as she sings in Portuguese, Spanish and her native English tongue. Her new self-titled album, Maya Solovey, released July 15th, has already gathered notice from journalists and music critics. Her song "Eu Vi" was featured in a Ralph Lauren runway video for winter fashion week, while her song "Como Yo Lloro Por Ti" will be featured on a in a FIFA World Cup compilation, and another 3 songs will be featured in an upcoming shark documentary called "Shark Allies". Tom Moon, on air critic for NPR, and journalist for Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine said, "Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original! Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovey has developed a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now." Bassy Bob Brockmann, a multiple Grammy winning producer/mixer said, "Maya Solovey is an exceptional songwriter, possessed of a voice that is haunting, soothing, and erotic all at the same time. Her music, I'm sure, will change the world."
