Using loop pedals and samples in order to layer multiple sounds and voices, the duo creates a rich and lush sound-world, with only the two of them on stage. From old gospel folk songs to Britney Spears, Kris and Julia bring a wide myriad of musical influences for a performance like nothing you've ever heard.
Pushing the boundaries of traditional American jazz, pianist and composer Kris Bowers is one of the newest and brightest lights on the jazz landscape. The genre-bending artist is open to numerous external influences that keep his music fresh and vibrant for a new century. Described as "mesmerizing" and "Ella Fitzgerald meets Stomp," Julia Easterlin is known for her captivating live compositions on a looping station and has been featured at Lollapalooza, Ted L.A., CMJ, and SXSW.
*The DSO does not appear on these performances.
