Serial collaborator Sharon Udoh has been a regular presence on Columbus stages for years, gigging with everyone from sprawling art-funk collective the Apes to Prohibition-era swing maestros the DewDroppers, in addition to pursuing her solo work with a range of musicians under the all-encompassing Counterfeit Madison umbrella.

For the singer/pianist's most recent EP, Palms Were a Bad Choice, which will be available both digitally and on cassette following a record release show at Till Dynamic Fare on Thursday, Feb. 12, she finally steps out on her own, turning out four intimate piano ballads that stride confidently in spite of their seemingly fragile titles ("Skin and Tendon," "Bone").

Udoh, performing solo as Counterfeit Madison, lined up a veritable murderer's row of local openers to kick things off, including Blake Skidmore (Old Hundred), Zac Little (Saintseneca), Joseph Camerlengo (Van Dale) and a surprise special guest. I wouldn't miss this one.
