Freestyle-rapping, harp-playing, songstress Cecilia Caleandro joins forces with the trumpet-wielding, electro-carnie-hop performer Blunderbuss Jones to bring you a night of brass, beats and bass, hip-hop, harp and soul.
* Thursday 5th April at Open Studio *
* Delicious crepes. Cheap entry. *
Electronic music producer and performer Brendan Jones (also of 8Foot Felix infamy) goes by the name Blunderbuss, mainly because he wields a trumpet like a weapon during his live sets. He'll be performing a special solo set comprising select Blunderbuss band material, plus a stack of brand new infectious grooves rooted in his trademark brass, beats and bass.
Blunderbuss Jones started DJ'ing in 2005 when he discovered electroswing, and that live instruments really enhance the stage show experience. Around the same time he began creating music using Ableton Live. Electronic beats and bass with live horns and punchy vocals.
Years in the making, it's high time some of these songs came out to play in front of a live audience. Expect bass driven grooves, brass interludes, hip-hop, dance and some serious business.
Cecilia's act includes singing, rapping, harp-playing, comedy and story-telling; improvising songs in a truly unique style. Her act is an uplifting and entertaining journey; pretty much a new genre of hip harp soul fusion!
A passionate lover of music, Cecilia has been singing before she has been speaking. Her songwriting style has evolved through the years from pop punk to more soulful ringing tunes, with the recent transition to harp as her main accompanying instrument two years ago.
She began freestyle rapping 3 years ago when her throat became too sore to sing, and has since become a legend at freestyle rapping and completely improvising entire songs while playing the harp.
