ARM is looking forward to an enchanting Sunday evening this weekend. With much pride we present you Jason Edwards and Natureboy, two amazing musicians from, respectively, Paris and New York.
Jason Edwards, French from American/English parents, plays music influenced by the pioneers of blues, folk and country in, according to himself, the tradition of Cohen, Dylan and the likes. I’d like to add Tom Waits, but, as always, better listen for yourself.
Jason Edwards, signed with Kill the DJ records, will perform at ARM as part of his 2010 European tour.
Natureboy, our second act of the evening, is the musical project of Sara Kermanshahi, a first generation American of Iranian descent. Natureboy recorded their self-titled debut which received its official release on Own records in July 2010. Natureboy weaves loops, waves of guitar, synth, bass, and drums with acoustic folk to create a haunting synthesis of moody and intelligent, melodic and angular music. Her lyrics are both starkly emotional and strangely evocative; drawing the listener into a strange and resonant world that persists long after the music is over. What emerges is gorgeous, vulnerable, and almost threatening.
This might just turn out to be the loveliest evenening we’ve had so far, and, considering that the rest was already as lovely as it was, I expect you all there at 20.00 sharp. No excuses, and no lollipops. See you Sunday@ARM.
