Christie Cooley & Ben Marcus
The playfulness and soul of R&B coupled with a unique pop sensibility are on full display when Christie Cooley sings. Covering tunes that range from Julie London’s ‘Cry Me A River’ and Alex Clare’s ‘Too Close,’ she carries a sensitivity that can soften a melody like a silk sheet. You can listen to Christie Cooley’s EP of original songs, Russian Doll, on Bandcamp.
She is accompanied by Ben Marcus, a member and songwriter with the Indianapolis based band, The Palace. Steeped in rock, his guitar alternates from aggressive to something from the clouds both to meet and contrast with Christie’s sultry energy. You can listen to ‘Waves’ by The Palace, written by Ben, on Spotify
