Lyndol Descant is a composer, singer and pianist with a musical style that is powerfully alive and eclectic. Her performance style is focused and innovative. Her voice, reflecting her travels around the word, merges jazz alto vocals with rock, and touches of folk. Her refined piano skills express raw emotion, especially in her improvisation. Her compositions stand outside of any one genre, expressing her truth fearlessly.
The Descant Trio:
Lyndol Descant - Piano/Vocals/Songwriting/Leader
Ran Livneh - Bass (Electric and Stand up)
Michael Vitali - Drums/Cajons
She released her 2nd CD of original compositions April 2016, entitled Reach Up. Another is forthcoming Fall 2017 with 9 more originals.
She loves to combine the elegance of traditional jazz and pop standards with fresh, hip sounds to create updated versions of classics. She's happy to play her originals, as well as covers in all genres. She’s available to play at private and public events/parties, fundraisers, as a solo artist, or with a collaboration of NYC musicians.
She prides herself on being able to create the right tone for whatever setting she’s performing in, be it quiet and relaxed or up beat. She’s been commissioned to provide vocals, piano and keyboard at a number of diverse events from a Cameroon wedding in Paris, a graduation party in the Algonquin Hotel-Manhattan, and a private party in Prospect Park-Brooklyn to a Christmas event at Old Glory Church in Wimberley-Texas and a large-scale Gala in Houston. She’s even performed for Sesame Street (forthcoming in 2017).
