Darwin Deez
https://facebook.com/darwindeeez
Born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to Maher Baba disciples, Darwin studied and performed as a tap dancer from age 8 to 18. His first compositions were guitar pop songs that he wrote aged 11 after his father, an amateur songwriter and a professional psychologist taught him his first chords. By age 13 Darwin was listening to electronic music — Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy and jungle/drum 'n bass and indie hip hop such as Dr. Octagon, composing mostly epic instrumental jungle throughout his teens.

After attending and promptly dropping out of Wesleyan University, Connecticut Darwin moved to NYC's East Village. Here he worked as a waiter at a vegan restaurant whilst picking up his guitar in spare moments, but with less strings and a less traditional approach to composition. Inspired by Animal Collective and The Strokes, he composed noise pop that no one ever heard, then got serious about music and started attending open mic nights. Having discovered the joy of lyric writing and becoming «Darwin Deez», he created his successful self-titled debut, which featured future hit singles 'Constellations', 'Radar Detector' and 'Up In the Clouds'.

Forming a band, member by member until there were four, they signed to UK based independent label Lucky Number in early 2010. He then spent the next 2 years touring the world playing raucously received live shows that featured spontaneous, synchronized dances on stage and added much needed verve and colour to the, sometimes dreary, indie landscape.

When time came to make album two in the fall of 2012, Darwin relocated from the chaotic hustle and flow of New York City to Asheville, North Carolina so he could work and record free of distractions. The results? 2013's sophomore album 'Songs For Imaginative People', which featured amped up production values, his newfound love for guitar shredding, and the singles 'Free (The Editorial Me)' and 'You Can't Be My Girl'.

2015 brought a new album, 'Double Down', recorded back 'home' in NYC and once again produced by Darwin himself. Singularly a brilliant, hilarious, complex, entertaining individual, Darwin Deez writes songs that will make you want to bust out your dancing shoes while also cutting to that raw, emotional nerve. Don't miss your chance to witness a rare insight into everything a pop star should be, and yet so rarely is.

On her full-length debut Discussions With Myself, Soren Bryce builds a world all her own—a sprawling dreamscape set to lushly detailed alt-pop, constructed with a newfound sense of self-possession. With her ethereal yet commanding vocals, the Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist sings of paper dolls and plane crashes with equal intensity, infusing the album with moments of bruising honesty and fragile wisdom.

The follow-up to her 2015 self-titled debut EP, Discussions With Myself marks a major milestone for Bryce: her first experience in immersing herself in the intricacies of sound design. “I used to make music in a way that was more folk-influenced, where I’d sit in my bedroom and play guitar and write like I was writing in my diary,” says Bryce, who’s originally from Amarillo, Texas. “But for this record I got so much more into production, and started approaching the songs by thinking about things like rhythm and composition first, and then creating from there.”

Working with producer Justyn Pilbrow (Halsey, The Knocks, The Neighbourhood), Bryce ended up sculpting a sonic universe that’s moody yet luminous, delicate yet volatile. While she notes that Pilbrow took on a mentor-like role in honing her production skills, the 20-year-old artist mostly handled the album’s pre-production on her own. “The EP was out, I’d started touring and decided not to go to college, so I had a lot of free time to mess around and get better-versed in production and synthesizers and gear,” says Bryce. “It was just fun to experiment, and to realize that music is so moldable—with synths especially, you can come up with a sound that you’d never be able to find again.”
