Vita and The Woolf
Vita and the Woolf is the sound of operatic vocals meeting neo-soul synth pop. Driven by the anthemic voice of front woman, Jennifer Pague and supported by the dynamic drumming of Adam Shumski, Vita and the Woolf has been melding cross-genre influences in their powerhouse electronic style since their first EP Fang Song came out in 2014.
The band's head-turning live show has since grown to reflect both the range of Pague's vocals and the music's shape shifting energy.
Originally inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, the name "Vita and the Woolf" was chosen while Pague was studying abroad in Europe in 2012. Upon returning to the states and going through a variety of line-up changes, the band has since solidified as a collaboration between Pague and Shumski. In the past year this configuration of Vita and the Woolf has been featured on the Urban Outfitters Music Blog, NYLON Magazine, and other regional and national media outlets as the band gears up for their upcoming album release in 2017. Stay tuned for more info about "TUNNELS", the band's new full length record.
Vita and the Woolf recently toured as direct support for Rasputina on a 17-date cross country tour. In addition they have performed at XPoNential Music Festival in 2015 on the same lineup as St. Vincent, My Morning Jacket, and Courtney Barnett. And have opened up for Milk Bone, Christine Perri, Colbie Caillat, Hamilton Leithauser, and The Parlour Tricks.
The Well Tempered
THE WELL TEMPERED; the nom de plume of Robert Bock. After cutting his teeth in various bands playing the venues of Chicago, he moved to the east coast and spent nearly a decade embedded in the music scene of NYC. Bock started THE WELL TEMPERED mid-2016 and decided to bring it back to his hometown. THE WELL TEMPERED is a stripped back evolution of the darkly romantic notions of storied acts like DEPECHE MODE and NINE INCH NAILS with enough polished production and haunting melodies to sit on a shelf with THE SOFT MOON and HEALTH; combining layers of shadowy synths that sit atop fuzz laden guitar work.
