Meet the Musician
Shira Averbuch was born in Rochester, NY to Israeli parents and split her time growing up between Israel and the States. Had a short stint as a singing soldier in the Israeli Army (yup, that's right...) She has performed in several Off Broadway shows (for full theatre credits CLICK HERE, Proud AE member!) One of those Off Broadway shows was Solitary Light, at Axis Theater Company, where she met the incredible Paul Carbonara, former music director and guitarist of the pop band Blondie. As they worked on Solitary Light a magical musical connection emerged and they've been musical partners ever since.
