Emilia Cataldo, aka Nehedar, is a NYC songstress who’s got quite the local following as the clubs and bars in Brooklyn and the Lower East Side, having played in the scene regularly since 2003. These days she has a new full-time bandmate, cellist/harpist Elisheva Maister. Along with Maister, the new album features trumpeter Jordan Hirsch and electric guitarist Tim Rockmore, once again working with producer Craig Levy.
The new album, Escaping Zion, is out now and the first single is “Mod Civ”. Nehedar’s unique sound, which Emilia says is heavily influenced by Jefferson Airplane, is well worth your time.
