Drip painting entails actively splashing myriad colors on canvas.

Popularized by Jackson Pollock, Janet Sobel, Max Ernst, and other 20th century luminaries, the artform itself relies on action and motion. In similar fashion, energetic splashes of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia color the music of Turkuaz. Balancing male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves, this spirit takes shape in the color donned by each respective member on stage nightly via larger-than-life performances.

The Brooklyn-based nonet—Dave Brandwein [guitar, vocals], Taylor Shell [bass], Craig Brodhead [guitar, keys], Michelangelo Carubba [drums], Chris Brouwers [trumpet, keys], Greg Sanderson [tenor sax], Josh Schwartz [baritone sax, vocals], Sammi Garett [vocals], and Shira Elias [vocals]—ignite an explosion of energy punctuated by neon hues, deft musicality, and show-stopping singalongs on their fifth full-length album, Life In The City.

“Turkuaz is made up of individuals, each their own shade of the color spectrum,” explains Dave. “Each person brings a signature style and embodies his or her own color. The respective auras come together to create our sound. The name itself implies that vibrancy, but it’s a different spin on turquoise. In the same way, we put a different spin on groove-oriented music by telling stories that you wouldn’t normally associate with funk.”

Since emerging in 2011 with their self-titled debut, the group have quietly animated a movement.

Heart Byrne atGranada Theater Dallas, TX

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 members of the Purple Bee Crew, some of Austin, TX’s most talented musicians.

RKCB & Shoffy: See For Yourself Tour atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

RKCB & Shoffy: See For Yourself Tour
at Deep Ellum Art Company

About RKCB – Legendary author Alan Watts believed we as humans need to go completely out of our minds to come fully into our emotions, as he so famously discussed in his book, Out of Your Mind. Self-proclaimed sexistential alt-pop duo RKCB draw upon this concept for their forthcoming music (check Alone with You, Pt. 2 ), which throbs with enlightenment about the life and death nature of love, our relationship with consciousness and even global warming.

�Finding creative liberation during a trip to London, and having flipped through the pages of Watts’ insightful ruminations, bandmates Riley Knapp and Casey Barth felt the energy between them monumentally shift. “It was like this big veil had been lifted, and we both felt the energy,” says Barth. “Watts’ book really opened up a lot, philosophically and emotionally, that we wanted to explore in the music.”�

Knapp and Barth’s destinies would become forever entwined during their music studies at University of Southern California. It was during a masterclass given by hip-hop performer and producer Young Guru that their worlds opened up, and they were able to see inside each other’s work. Their subsequent first creative session together gave birth to a song called “Comatose,” a cut off their 2015 debut EP, Short Films, which gave way to a yin-yang friendship. “Figuring this process out has been the most exciting part about this journey and is what gives us faith that we have a lot more to do and say,” says Knapp.

About Shoffy – Born and raised in the City of Angels, soulful producer/vocalist/instrumentalist Shoffy champions electronic-based Pop/R&B fused with guitar and smooth vocals. By day, Shoffy, real name Alex Shofler, worked as a financial analyst until recently — now, he’s pursuing music full-time. Writing and producing since age 14, Shofler has jumped from different projects and bands, until embarking on his solo career.

His first wide release under the Shoffy moniker came in November 2015 with single “Takes My Body Higher” ft. Lincoln Jesser off his EP conversations in the a.m. The single spread virally and reached 33 million plays (and growing) on Spotify and 13 Million video plays on YouTube. Achieving this organically without any promotion, “Take My Body Higher” also claimed a spot on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Charts for 12 weeks, peaking at #19.

Following this success, Shofler released a new EP, somewhere between nostalgia and paradise, leading with “Home,” a track he wrote and co-produced. All of the songs on the seven-track EP are written, and most produced or co-produced, by Shofler, and feature him playing various instruments throughout. Standout cuts include “Home” and “Movin On” — a beautiful and simple testimony to a love lost, written originally with only his guitar and vocal. somewhere between nostalgia and paradise also features collaborations with fellow hype-worthy peers including Jack LNDN on “Better Off Here,” TA?CHES on “Eat Your Friends,” and RKCB as co-producer and co-writer on “Home.”

Twiddle with Hip Abduction atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

Deep Ellum Art Company | Banjos To Beats | Time2Fly Music Presents:

Twiddle Winter Tour 2019
Thursday, January 31

Deep Ellum Art Company
3200 Commerce Street
Dallas, TX

Tickets on Sale 11/30 @ 10 AM!
http://bit.ly/Twiddle-DTX

With 12 years of relentless touring behind them, Vermont-based rock band Twiddle has built an impressive resume spanning Red Rocks to Bonnaroo, and multiple sellouts of historic rock venues including Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre, and Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club. And with the second half of the band’s third studio album, PLUMP, on the horizon, the band’s career continues to catapult forward. Buoyed by the generous support of 359 Kickstarter donors, the 27-song album does more than showcase the group’s beautiful music, but also tells an important story, comprised in PLUMP Chapters 1 & 2.

Recorded during a two-year span with legendary producer Ron St. Germain, PLUMP serves as a reflection of four brothers’ triumphs and struggles, both individual and as a whole. On Chapter 1, songs like “Lost in the Cold” and “Every Soul” detail what it’s like to hit rock bottom and how to rise back up.

“So many fans have shared how these songs carried them through very difficult times, and that alone makes this all worth it,” said Brook Jordan, Twiddle’s percussionist and vocalist. Comparatively, Chapter 2 contains genre-bending instrumentals, as well as mystifying epics like

“Nicodemus Portulay” and “Orlando’s.” More than ten years later, these songs mirror the earliest Twiddle arrangements of 2004-2005 when Mihali Savoulidis and Ryan Dempsey were collaborating in their freshmen dorms at Castleton State College. The completion of PLUMP is timely, coming at a moment when the band’s fervent fan base is at an all-time high and expanding rapidly.

In the live setting, more and more people are invigorated by Twiddle’s community, promoting positivity and the band’s skillful improvisational music. So many like-minded people believe in the greater good, and they find that good in Twiddle.

Twiddle is comprised of Zdenek Gubb on bass and vocals, Ryan Dempsey on keyboards and vocals, Mihali Savoulidis on guitar and lead vocals, and Brook Jordan on percussion and vocals.
