Greta Gertler Gold is a Brooklyn-based composer, lyricist, performer and producer who writes songs that have been described as a “peculiar and exciting alchemy of accessible but avant-garde pop” - Elizabeth Nelson, NPR. Greta leads a band called The Universal Thump with her husband, drummer-producer, Adam D Gold. They released a double, eponymous, orchestral pop album in 2102 and ‘Walking The Cat’ - an EP recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 2015. In addition to her work with the Thump, Greta is also currently working on several new, hybrid/ non-traditional musicals, including a collaboration with TONY Award winning artist, Stew (Passing Strange). Tonight, she will be joined by a full band, including Adam D Gold (drums), Byron Isaacs (The Lumineers) on bass, plus string quartet and special guest actor-vocalists Lauren Molina (Sweeney Todd), Rob Morrison (Nevermore), Katrina Yaukey (The Great Comet), Ann Carr (Red Oaks), Michael Bernardi (Fiddler on the Roof), Joelle Lurie (Jerry Springer The Opera) and others, performing short excerpts of her rock musical Triplight(developed at Ucross, Rhinebeck Writers Retreat, The Tank and SPACE at Ryder Farm in collaboration with playwright Alexandra Collier) and other musicals-in-progress in concert form.
