SONGWRITER SHOWCASE: Kristin Rebecca, Max Subar, ZEVIN

  • Uncommon Ground (Lakeview) 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)


Kristin Rebecca has been called a musical goddess due to her captivating performance style which combines her powerful, angelic voice, unique guitar rhythms and rare harp ability into a show unlike any other. Her songs tell personal expressions, wider observations, narrative commentary and thoughtful reflections – each evoking timeless a narrative to pull you into the stories. She is an award-winning musician and is an actively touring artist who consistently performs over 200 shows a year.


Singer/songwriter Max Subar aims to remain bound to his midwestern roots with songs that radiate closeness and warmth. Growing up, his mother’s old nylon guitar became a familiar friend in the wake of moving to Australia and back as well as his parents’ divorce. Max’s grounded relationship to songwriting has helped shed light on his own experiences and struggles; from euphoric intimacy to the isolation of depression and anxiety. His debut EP reflects upon themes of love, loss, and reflection. ‘In a Dream’ is out now. 


ZEVIN is an ever-evolving project, once just a guy with a guitar, it has become something more.  Incorporating the use of backing tracks and having utilized the occasional additional band member, the sky is now the limit!

There is no ‘true’ musical direction with ZEVIN, just melodic possibilities.  As a fan of many MANY different genres, the aim is to create a vast array of different sounds and translate them to the live stage as fully as possible.  Drawing influence from several different areas (not just music) truly helps to craft something unique, so expect the unexpected.
