Kate Davis and Jesse Ruben play Cafe 939
November 16, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
With the recent release of her album Trophy, Kate Davis explores the loss of her father, showcasing her emotive abilities through her vulnerable lyrics and precise pop melodies. Although her most recent projects include co-writing Sharon Van Etten’s hit single “Seventeen” and contributing to the soundtrack for ‘Five Feet Apart,’ Davis considers her debut indie rock album her hardest-earned accolade to date. Armed with a background in jazz, Kate Davis has developed her music into something significantly more dynamic and effective, reflecting upon what it means to live and ruminating topics too close to her heart with transparency and grace.
Brooklyn singer-songwriter Jesse Ruben made waves with his motivating 2012 anthem “We Can” that he wrote after running the NYC Marathon. After its release, Jesse started the “We Can Project” with the goal of inspiring kids that they can achieve anything they put their minds too, traveling across the country to help them set goals and find ways to give back to their communities. This message rang even truer after Jesse fell ill for 9 months with Lyme Disease. He found that going through something so life-altering changed his perspective on life and writing, inspiring him to spread an even bigger message through his music: No matter what you’re going through, you’re not alone, and it will get better.
