Olive + Powers + Romero present a first-time collaboration between Izzy Olive (Half Gringa), Emily Jane Powers, and Jenn Romero (The Jellies). This Chicago trio aims to revisit songs that gave formation to albums that each artist has released in the past year. Some of the songs never made the cut and others are in their regular repertoire. In an industry where artists are sometimes set up to compete with one another for space and listenership, Olive + Powers + Romero want to showcase collaboration between women outside of a formal band context. In their individual experiences of pursuing careers in music, community has always been at the heart of support, from the most vulnerable moments of lapses in confidence to the joy and excitement of bringing projects to completion to live audiences. Tonight, the three bring their expertise, intuition, and appreciation for each other’s musicianship together to celebrate the beauty of creative discourse and community between women.
