Audrey Chen + special guest
Daniel de Jesús
ABOUT THE EVENT
Bowerbird is excited to present a rare Philadelphia appearance by experimental vocal duo Audrey Chen and her British singing partner (pictured above). Opening the evening will be cellist-singer Daniel de Jesús.
With primary focus on the interplay between the uttered sounds of the mouth and vocal chords, Audrey Chen and her long time collaborator (pictured above) plumb the depths of their most inherent and bodily instruments. Their improvisations are fearless, fragile, hungry, passionate, riotous, ululating and animalistic, yet are also in all respects, human. They express, pronounce and intensely articulate (in their fashion) the many nuanced shades of their individual and collaborative conditions.
Set to levitate toward the stratosphere, cello-wielding frontman Daniel de Jesus captivates with his powerful, soaring vocals and steals the hearts of all mortals in his presence. Upon first listen, alternative rock purists will appreciate the musical nods that de Jesús offers toward other-worldly rock influences like David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, & Bjork. Soulful & mysterious & unforgettably unique - that is the sound of Daniel de Jesús. For this performance, de Jesuss will be premiering some new music from his latest project.
