FRINGE Music in the Library: Mellow Diamond

Friday, Aug. 14, 2015, 12 p.m.

Janel Leppin is a cello virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist; an architect of acoustic and analog sound; a haunting and almost mythic singer with a sharp political consciousness. A celebrated young voice with a dedicated following on D.C.’s jazz and improvised music scene, Leppin shows off another side on Treaty, her solo debut as Mellow Diamond. It ventures even further down the ethereal path she’s blazed with the acclaimed duo Janel and Anthony, and lands her in the realm of experimental dream-pop.
