The 11th St. Bar
Songs from the album, Angel Sings The Blues. And other beautiful chaos.
With Brian Sanders: The sweetest spirit in NYC playing Cello
These peculiar days have been filled of politics and death.
I’m not sure of the state of things, really.
When it feels like nothing is left inside you just keep singing still.

A Wondrous Tale About Emma Brooks combines the exquisite songs of Rivky, musically directed by David Seamon and narration written and performed by Jack Feldstein. With music and story, the tale of sixteen year old Emma Brooks unfolds, as she jumps into mad rivers and meets memorable characters along the way. Some of them are friendly; some of them are sly. All of them lead her to a most curious, wondrous adventure—and, ultimately, into self discovery.

Rivky Grossman is a self-taught artist, Pianist, singer and writer who is thankful to have discovered a way to uniquely & unexpectedly blend all of her skills into a curious routine of creative exploration, bringing her passions to life, while living with the challenges of mental illness and fighting its stigma. Her artwork has been shown in NYC & The Hamptons & is currently exhibiting in Endicott College in Massachusetts. Some works, like the controversial piece, “Teffilin Nude” and “Haiku Swaying In The Sun”, have been sold to art collectors, Heidi Rigney amongst them. As an artist, Rivky primarily works with pastel, acrylic and collage. You can find Rivky blogging about her latest art projects, including “The Positivity Project”, (ask her about it!).
