Dear New York Community,
We warmly invite you to Community & Sound: An Evening of Diverse Music, with Michael Chinworth and The Rudder Band, Darling Din, & Tim Haufe with Strings.
As we've built Subtle Soup Records over the last few years, by far the most wonderful nights of music we host are these showcase gatherings where we are able to curate the whole night.
The feedback we receive most often is "I love the sense of community here, and all these people listening together."
That's why we're so excited to invite you to Pine Box Rock Shop to join us for another night of fantastic artists. It's a small intimate place, perfect for meeting people with a passion for music and hearing and seeing great artists up close.
This month we have soul art-pop singer and pianist Michael Chinworth and The Rudder Band. Michael's work has been described as "Beautiful music: soulful, affectingly poignant, lonely, truthful." - Allen Shawn (Music Composition Faculty, Bennington College). Anawan's Trevor Wilson describes Michael this way: "The voice that Michael has worked to perfect over the years is, in a word, perfect...I can’t wait for the world to catch wind of it and embrace his gift."
Next we have Darling Din, poetic-rockers recently celebrated by NPR's Bob Boilen. "Of the bands that played our first Tiny Desk Contest event in NYC, Darling Din was the one that wowed me most, from the singing of Lisa Jaeggi to the power of the guitar, bass and drums." Fresh off the release of their new album Batty Fang, they were listed as one of the top-ten Tiny Desk Concert submissions. NPR's Marissa Lorusso says their song "Trash" "has an intense energy that crackles just under the surface; when the song's pulsing bass and steady drums come in, that energy breaks through, raw yet refined. By the song's end, Lisa Jaeggi's guitar is gnarled and distorted, Sharon Raizer holds down both the drums and keys and bassist Jonathon Wright is locked into a melodic groove. The result is mesmerizing."
Finally, we have jazz-inspired singer-songwriter and showcase veteran Tim Haufe with Strings. Tim is celebrating the release of his newest work What Came Next: Tim Haufe with Strings. This most recent entry into his catalog is a lush reimagining of his work in combination with a full string quartet. Daniel Dissinger, of InStereoPress describes Tim this way: “Tim has all the qualities one looks for in a live performance: He is in tune with the elasticity of the crowd. I could feel myself being drawn closer and closer to the music as the song went on.”
