The identical twin’s untamed, layered guitars and tribal jazz hard-bop drumming are truly a marvel of jazz-rock orchestration. Their deep telepathic twinship navigates colorful forms of beautiful weirdness and exotic landscapes of layered improvisation, transcending the concept of modern musical performance. They have toured relentlessly throughout U.S.A., Asia, Brazil, Europe, Scandinavia, and The Netherlands. Collaborations include Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi), Cornelius, Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, Money Mark, Jeff Parker, John Herndon, John McEntire, and Chocolat & Akito.
Hailing from Washington, DC, singer-songwriter and musician James Tillman fell in love with the sound of music at an early age. Exposure to his parents' extensive album collection, which included everything from Afrika Bambaataa to Joni Mitchell, and solo karaoke concerts with a Fisher Price toy cassette player planted musical seeds within him. A knock out church performance of 'This Little Light of Mine" at age 9 and learning to play Mozart's Clarinet concerto by 16 helped those musical seeds to take root and flourish. James' unwavering desire to become a singer was ignited by iconic artists such as Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and D'Angelo. After discovering that Marvin Gaye was a native Washingtonian, James became further driven to forge his own musical path. Drenched in the tradition of these greats yet also inspired by contemporary producers, James' sound is rooted in soulful R&B with a modern twist. James is set to release his debut on April 29th , Shangri La. James' goal with the Shangri La EP is to reacquaint the world with meaningful lyrics and soul music that makes you feel good. This project focuses on the unique elements of love that stir the soul. Based in earnest artistry and love, James is destined to create timeless music. There is no limit for this young talent.
