From the venue:Born at the Disco is Jennifer O’Connor’s 4th release on Kiam Records, the label she started in 2002 before signing with Red Panda and then Matador. Licensing her music to dozens of films and television shows including The Handmaid’s Tale, Orange Is the New Black, The Good Fight, Sons of Anarchy, and Grace and Frankie, has helped support the label over the years, including projects for other Kiam artists, as well as the record store, which she and Bezunartea opened in Nyack, NY in 2014. O’Connor has played in Dump with James McNew of Yo La Tengo (who also played bass on two of her albums) and has shared stages with the likes of Neko Case, Wilco, Robyn Hitchcock, Silver Jews and numerous others. While many creators are re-assessing how to sustain both practice and career, O’Connor is gratified to have finished a new album that reflects her enduring desire to keep growing through music.
