Vinny Golia

Haale is a NY-born singer and composer of Persian descent. She released two EPs in 2007, ‘Paratrooper’ and ‘Morning,’ to critical acclaim and in 2008 the full-length album, ‘No Ceiling’ which the Boston Globe called ‘a swirling gem…one of the year’s most memorable releases.’ She toured across the US, in Canada, and in Europe, playing such venues as the Bonnaroo Festival, the David Byrne-curated series at Carnegie Hall, the Mimi Fest, and Memorial Hall at UNC.

She will be performing music from her new project, The Mast, with percussionist Matt Kilmer, which features her undulating vocals, hypnotic electric guitar riffs, and his hyperkinetic, polyrhythmic drumming.
