Eleanor Dubinsky: Welcome to My Music
Eleanor Dubinsky is “a multilingual musician who can capture the emotions and soul of a community in a song.” (NPR). A vocalist, guitarist and cellist, Eleanor Dubinsky’s music lives at the tender edge where jazz, world and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. She performs at The Lyric Theatre on Friday, March 4th at 7:30 PM, kicking off the Lyric’s monthlong celebration of women.
Hailing from St. Louis, MO and based in NYC, her sound reflects and celebrates both her mid-western roots and the formative time she has spent in South America, Western and Central Europe, Portugal and Cape Verde.
At the center of Eleanor’s artistic mission is using music as a means for amplifying marginalized voices and generating dialogue amongst diverse audiences. She is currently a U.S. State Department Arts Envoy and leads Our Voices, Our Songs, a series of songwriting workshops in the USA and Latin America in which young artists write and record original songs rooted in their own personal and community narratives.
Eleanor has released three albums to date: Touch The Sky (2011), Listen To The Music (2012) and Soft Spot of My Heart (2018). In 2021 she released Remember Me, a song tribute to a mother recovering from losing her son to opioid addiction. Remember Me is co-written with the mother of the song’s protagonist, with the mission to provide comfort for those directly affected by this crisis and to aid like-minded organizations in promoting addiction awareness and prevention.
