The expressive, emotional singer-songwriter first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s Manhattan-based chamber-pop group October Project. Fahl created awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication, said a Flash press release.

Her most recent album, "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House," won the Indie Acoustic Album of the Year award. It a collection of 24 tracks recorded live at one of America's oldest vaudeville theaters. The show was filmed for PBS and is currently airing on PBS affiliates around the country.
