FOLK | Kirsten Maxwell 

Long Island singer-songwriter Kirsten Maxwell has an ariose voice, with a ringing vibrato like that of a songbird swooping down to rest atop a bright, acoustic guitar. Her conversational lyrics create a natural segue into memorable choruses that audiences can sing along to, emulating a late-1990's female singer-songwriter vibe like that of Jewel and Paula Cole. There is a nostalgic feeling of the fleeting passage of time, reminiscing about the past while embracing the ever-changing, forward motion of life. After graduating college in 2014, Maxwell performed in a variety of songwriting competitions and festivals, and independently released her debut album, "Crimson," in April 2015. This is music perfect for cruising in your car on a crisp, spring morning, with the windows cracked and tulips budding all around you.

Kirsten Maxwell performs Saturday, April 7, at Café Veritas at First Unitarian Church, 220 South Winton Road.  7:30 p.m. $18 general; $10 students; Free for kids under 12. cafeveritas.org; kirstenmaxwell.com.
