The Latest Scoop

Henry the Invisible Geographer from Minnesota going HAM with Shaun Martin

Posted by & filed under Featured, News.

Foundation Room’s Wednesday Night Live is featuring Henry + The Invisibles!

Henry + The Invisibles (Henry Roland) is a live-looping, multi-instrumentalist aka “The One Man Funk Band” that loops and layers vocal harmonies, funk guitar, grooving bass, soulful keyboards and powerful percussion to create original high energy dance music that sounds like a solid 5 piece funk ensemble!

In the summer of 2005, after a series of deaths in the family, Michael Deni left his hometown in New Jersey for San Francisco. He spent the next several months with a synthesizer he found on the street, turning that tragedy into the songs that would become the foundation for Geographer. Deni played his first shows by lying to promoters about how many people he could bring, handing out fliers by hand, and doing anything he could to get on stage. Cut to 6 years later, and he had sold out the legendary Filmore in San Francisco, headlined the 2300 seat Fox Theater in Oakland, and sold out shows all across the country on tour.

Deni’s life in music began as a child, where he sang in a church choir. He wrote his first song when he was 4 years old, and began writing and recording his own music in earnest at age 12, when his father gave him a 4-track cassette tape recorder, with which Deni spent hours in his basement layering track upon track of guitar, saxophone, vocals, and a homemade ceramic drum his sister made him as a birthday present. Geographer’s music is characterized by the use of vintage analog and FM synthesizers coupled with modern software synthesizers, as well as an electric cello often featured on songs in place of a lead guitar. Live on stage Deni performs with a band of revolving musicians, almost always with an electric cellist, drummer, and multi-instrumentalist to aid him in filling out his lush arrangements, and the band has become famous for its energetic and emotional live performances.

Geographer’s new EP, ‘Alone Time,’ is the result of 2 years of that same kind of recording he used to do as a teenager. Days at a time spent alone, so that he could capture the music always coursing through his head, knowing that one day this hermetic existence would bring him in front of crowds of people. The songs explore, as do the rest of his catalog, the nature of existence, the self, an uncertain but optimistic curiosity about why we are here, and what it means to love and lose each other, but most of all, ‘Alone Time’ is a meditation on loneliness. While he needs solitude to make his songs, the place Geographer has said he truly feels alive is not alone with his thoughts, but together with strangers, on stage at his concerts.

The Jauntee
[ psychedelic / blues / latin-reggae ]
www.thejauntee.com
thejauntee.everupwardent.com
Live Jaunts: thejauntee.bandcamp.com

Averaging over one hundred shows a year — The Jauntee has built a foundation of dedicated fans across the country. After spending 8 years rooted in New England and touring nationally, the band now resides in Colorado but considers the stage their truest home.

They’ve received national recognition at several festivals (ie. Peach Fest, Catskill Chill) and have traveled the circuit of staple nationwide clubs and theaters (ie. Georgia Theatre, Bluebird Theatre, Fox Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl, Paradise Rock Club).

A focus on live improvisation, set list variety, and exploration gives The Jauntee a musical edge in the live setting. As Berklee College of Music alumni, their technical prowl, willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming Jam Band. The Jauntee aims to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. It’s music you get lost inside of – Music that pulls you in like a violent, beautiful cyclone of sound.

7 Time Grammy Winner
Shaun Martin Music (of Snarky Puppy)
[ jazz / funk / rock ]
Shaun Martin has been playing, creating, and collaborating for most of his life, yet his contributions go much further than just playing. When you move through the projects that Shaun has been a part of you can feel his style and influence; you can sense his presence throughout the compositions. Shaun’s willingness and ability to be a subtle part of each band has allowed him to be part of the very foundation.

Shaun Martin has a natural gift that has been evident since he began playing drums in church at the age of 4. Yes, his mother had the vision to arrange piano instruction from Carolyn Campbell and guide him on his path. Yes, he has several Grammys from his work with Kirk Franklin and the gospel powerhouse God’s Property and Yes, he has a Grammy that crowns his many years with jazz fusion phenomenon Snarky Puppy. But you will not find this information in discussion with this gently powerful man because he wears none of this on his sleeve.

Dynamo
[ jazz / r&b / gospel ]
Dynamo is Nashville-based, nationally touring band whose music fuses jazz, rock, and funk with elements of soul and R&B. The culmination is a sound that’s both spontaneous and composed—and an energy that’s undeniably infectious.

Formed in late 2012, Dynamo consists of nine core musicians. When they’re not performing or recording in Nashville, the band is on the road, spreading their unique brand of feel-good music to audiences all over the world.

Group members include Kevin Gatzke (Tenor sax), Andrew Golden (trumpet), Joshua Blaylock (Keyboard/Trombone), Ryan Connors (Piano/composer), John Murphy (Guitar), Hank Born (Guitar), Adam McPhail (Guitar), Zach Witcher (Bass), Ross McReynolds (Drums/Perc.) Nathan Felty (Drums/Perc.) and Dain Ussery (vocals).

Heart Byrne (Austin, TX)
[ new wave pop punk ]
www.heartbyrne.org

HeartByrne pays tribute to Talking Heads and David Byrne, who fused pop, funk, art rock, and African rhythms into perhaps the most adventurous, danceable and timeless music to emerge from the new wave movement. HeartByrne picks up the torch where the seminal concert film ‘Stop Making Sense’ left off, breathing new life into the classics and pushing the grooves into uncharted sonic territory.

What began as an informal ‘hoot night’ has evolved into a must-see touring act featuring vocalist Andrew Harn and some of Austin, TX’s most talented musicians.

Depeshi (Dallas, TX)
[ alternative / synth-pop / electronic rock ]

“A Different Kind of Mode”. Depeshi is a Depeche Mode cover band. Formed by members of the Dallas electronic band ishi.
