University of Michigan Alumnus Lily Talmers is coming to local music venue, The Ark, on January 8th at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available for purchase on The Ark’s website for $20 each. The Ark never fails to host the most intimate and beautiful performances, and so I am beyond excited to return for this show in particular. Talmers will be joined by trombonist, singer, and composer John Cushing and others on this tour.
Talmers just released her second full length album, “Hope is the Whore I Go To”, on July 29th of this year and it has been an absolute joy to listen to. It was followed up by “My Mortal Wound,” what Talmers has described on her Instagram page as an “inseparable” piece to the former album. The music is both haunting and healing, creating a unique atmosphere worth diving headfirst into. If you haven’t already, go listen to this music; better yet, go see her perform live at The Ark. I have no doubt it will be an experience you won’t regret having.
