"Sami Akbari - Original, exciting, one of the best artists Ive seen, and sure to bring the house down - don't miss her!" Larry Oakes - NYSongwriters.com

"In the sea of musicians in this crazy world, there are not many that can stop you in your tracks with the sound of their voice and their poetic lyrics that cut to the bone like Sami Akbari can. Sami Akbari is an artist that amazes people with her talent each and every time she performs, sometimes leaving listeners in tears with her heartfelt, bluesy vocals. Raised outside of Philadelphia, Sami began singing and writing at the early age of six. She began to hit the Philadelphia open mic circuit in 2002, and since then, has made tremendous strides both with her emotion-evoking lyrics and soulful voice. Sami moved to Brooklyn in June of 2005 to continue writing, singing and performing her music to anyone who will listen. She quickly established a place for herself in the New York City music scene playing at prestigious venues such as The Bitter End, Pianos, and CBs Lounge." -myspace.com/samiakbari

A Few Things to know about Erin and her Cello.

1) They are not classical. "Quirky, Vivacious, and undeniably unique" Tiffany Martini, Strings Magazine.

2) They love to laugh. "Erin is a hilarious chic with a sense of humor as finely tuned as her cello. She wields her bow with the same wit and savvy that a satirist wields his pen!" - Doug Wright, Pulitzer Prize Winner, I Am My Own Wife

3) They love Ella Fitzgerald, the songs of Cole Porter, and Serge Gainsbourg. "Sounds like: Blossom Dearie fronting They Might be Giants." The Philadelphia Enquirer.
