Description Next Wave of Song: Ian & Chad
A mix of theatrical whimsy and heartfelt soul from two very odd (and handsome) guys looking to connect through song. There will be a piano. Prepare to smile (Ian & Chad).
Our art is inspired by:
The Nightmare Before Christmas, the Beatles, coconuts, aliens, and the overall lack of positivity in the world. We'd like to change that (Ian & Chad).
Earliest musical memory at the keyboard:
Being three years old at my grandma's house, figuring out how to play "Tequila." Pee-Wee Herman was one of my childhood heroes (Ian).
Next Wave of Song: Tamar-kali
My project, Pseudoacoustic, bridges the gap between my New York City rock-scene roots and my love of strings and torch songs. It's probably my most palatable project-a little something for everyone.
One powerful moment as a performer:
Traveling the country to make the film Afro-Punk. It was amazing to witness commonalities that had yet to solidify within a community start to blossom into an international network of people.
The next wave of Tamar-kali is:
A tsunami of sound that swells beyond past heights, crushes categorical isolation, and washes away doubts and expectations.
