Deep South Distillery and All Jazz Radio are presenting a new series of solo and duo original acoustic music performances twice a month.

The first is on Wednesday, 19 December, 2018 with a feature slot by renowned bassist Hein Van de Geyn and vocalist Cyrille Carreon. They will perform a program of poetry and voice and bass. Together Cyrille and Hein’s amalgam of poems and songs will present their personal take on life – music brought back to its bare essence.

Cyrille Carreon has a long career in the musical world as a singer, dancer, and actress. She has performed in many well-known shows, such as Miss Saigon and The Lion King, and has had roles in several movies. After years on the big stage, she decided to turn her focus to the crossover between words and music and became more active on smaller, quality stages – performing songs and poetry in intimate settings.
