Odetta Hartman NEW EP 'Bark'

Photograph by Anna Bonnet

Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen is on a roll, if you caught Odetta Hartman's single 'End of the World' released back in August you've probably been waiting for this EP as much as I. With her stupendous vocals and classically trained violin Odetta lays down a sultry mix of jazz, soul and vaudeville that enchants.

Odetta Hartman writes songs of greek myths and traveling; of pride, Pynchon, and fairy tales; of animals and body parts and made-up words. Classically trained on the violin for 18 years at Third Street Music School, her musical education was further supplemented with courses at Bard College in jazz voice and improvisation, composition, electronic music, and traditional folk songs. Currently back at home in New York City, her time is devoted to studio work, performance art, curating events, cultivating the Dalton School’s rooftop garden
