Ben Morey / Katie Preston / Onlyness

Join us on the SMCo. patio for another enjoyable evening of live music! Coffee, beer, wine, etc flowing all night. $5 suggested donation to the musicians.

BEN MOREY is a songwriter living in Rochester, NY

KATIE PRESTON is also a songwriter living in Rochester, NY

ONLYNESS is the self-titled debut and latest installment from upstate New York based singer-songwriter Rick Spataro. Soft pillowy snare drum and muted bass guitar contrasts with layers of vocals, electric and acoustic guitar, upright piano, analog synthesizers and other electronics. Spataro’s approach to writing his own songs emphasizes melody and lyric, with a production and orchestration style that aims to support the underlying song, rather than dress it up or drown it out. The words are plain and direct, equal parts sarcastic and sincere.
