Our third album comes out tomorrow! I can’t wait for you to hear it. We captured some magic in an incredible studio in Manhattan (Lethe Lounge) back in June, and some amazing folks have helped us bring it to the world. Order it here!
Thanks to the encouragement of Andrew Yoon from nothing to say, I gathered some enduring thoughts on music and art into an essay. I’d be honored to have your eyes, and I’d love to hear your thoughts! The link is below:
I am very excited to announce the release of "set-go," my collaboration with choreographer and videographer Liana Klienman. It was a labor of love of many months, supported by some truly marvelous musicians and dancers. I hope you enjoy!
Sound Underground is very excited to be off to the Jalisco International Jazz Festival next month! We can't wait to see our old friends and make new ones.
One of the most inspiring things about being in New York has been a deepening involvement with the dance community. Insprired by improvising with dancers at the Banff Centre this summer, I began hosting monthly movement and sound improvisation sessions in October to explore the shared language of our mediums. In January we had the incredible fortune to present one such improvisation at the Triskelion Arts "Never Before, Never Again" improvised dance festival, and even convinced them to let us seat some of the audience on the stage with us. Check out some highlights below!
Winter tour! Short and sweet, excited to explore new places and share bills with some really great bands!
I recently acquired a beautiful restored 1936 National Duolian resonator guitar, which has fast become an obsession of mine. I've put together a new band to explore its sound, with fellow Brooklynites Brian Krock on woodwinds (saxophone, bass clarinet and oboe) and Jake Shandling on drums. We're debuting at the Bar Next Door this Thursday 12/28 at 6:30pm! More to come soon!
Pinching myself a little... Just got to play at the nation's performing arts center in Washington D.C. with two of my favorite musicians! Here's a new piece of mine we played there:
After a transformative three weeks in the mountains of Alberta, at the Banff Centre's Jazz and Creative Music workshop under the guidance of Vijay Iyer, I am incredibly excited to be starting a new chapter in Brooklyn, New York. See you in the city that never sleeps!
I'm a little late on the uptake once again, but Sound Underground is halfway through a fantastic third trip up and down the West Coast. We're honored by the warm welcomes!
Next month, I head to the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada for the Banff Creative Music and Jazz Workshop. Can't wait to work with some fantastic musicians before landing in NYC in September!
