Enjoy a night of humor and music with Mouths of Babes at Empty Sea Studios!

With more than a dozen albums and over a thousand shows between them, Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth of Mouths of Babes are no strangers to the modern folk music scene. For years, their respective bands Girlyman and Coyote Grace captivated thousands of loyal fans as they criss-crossed the country, rocked festival main stages, and toured with the likes of the Indigo Girls and Dar Williams. Now, as Mouths of Babes, Ty and Ingrid have distilled the very best of the songwriting, humor, and musicianship of their previous groups into a new power duo that brings more style and depth than ever before.

The key to the Mouths of Babes magic is in the contrast. Rarely is a sound or a show as balanced as it is with these two, and the differences in both their songwriting styles and personal presentation makes for an unusually satisfying yin and yang. The Chicago Tribune writes, “They offer unique counterpoints to one another…the laidback Ty, nattily dressed in a tie and crisp suit jacket, has a rich, lovely alto. Ingrid, clad in a sultry pink satin mini-dress, is a sassy chanteuse with a lilting soprano. Trading jokes and sharing elegant harmonies, the two women display an intuitive professional bond.” They easily switch off lead vocals and play a wide array of instruments, with Ty on acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, and foot percussion, and Ingrid playing upright bass, ukulele, and cajon.

Mouths of Babes burst onto the acoustic music scene in 2014 with big shoes to fill, and on their debut EP Faith & Fumes they delivered with songs that are equal parts celebration and blues, folk and soul, tear-jerker ballad and irreverent ditty. In just over a year, the duo has become a sought-after act in its own right, headlining some of the best rooms on the circuit, such as the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, Evanston SPACE in Chicago, and Club Passim in Boston. They’ve also made some fans in high places, and in February 2016 Mouths of Babes will record its first full-length CD with legendary Grammy-winning producer Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Patti Smith). Burn calls the new Mouths of Babes songs a veritable “gold mine of material,” and the highly anticipated CD is slated for a fall 2016 release.

“Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth have an absolutely mesmerizing kismet together, and are both accomplished musicians [with] versatile, fun-loving, moving, accessible and simply beautiful songwriting. Go see this band – and prepare to fall in love!” – North End Concert Series
