Who Juri is…
Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. Classically trained in voice and piano, Juri is driven by the power of music to uplift audiences, having developed her love of singing through early performances with the likes of leading performers including: Japanese classical vocalist, Ken Nishikiori, on La Damnation de Faust, conducted by Seiji Ozawa (now musical director of Vienna State Opera).
Juri is a graduate of Berklee College of Music. During her time at BCM, she had great opportunities to learn many genres of music from jazz and Latin, to African and hip hop. She has worked with artists and industry icons such as Tata Vega, Raheem DeVaughn, Bootsy Collins, Dontae Winslow and Valerie Simpson.
Since graduating BCM, Juri has been developing her own unique sounds with help of many musically talented people in her life, such as: vocal coach Dave Stroud, co-writer Carrie Haber, producer/ MD Dave Cole, and Grammy winning recording engeneer Jeremy Loucas to name a few. To understand the layered musical styles and the harmonies that make up her music, imagine if J-Pop and French Pop had a music baby named Emergency Tiara.
Shirley House is a show that combines large scale production (think Beyoncé) with the earnestness of underground music and art (think Santigold). A truly diverse group of soul singers, dancers, and electronic instrumentalists, they make clear that everyone who comes to the show has a place at the table—no matter their race, orientation, nationality, or creed.
Shirley House has played in many of New York’s most beloved venues, including Gramercy Theatre, Mercury Lounge, and Pianos. Most recently, they finished a year long weekly residency at the McKittrick Hotel, home of Sleep No More. Putting showmanship at the forefront, Shirley House is a sound experience you don't want to miss.
Scam Avenue is like the soundtrack of a John Hughes movie produced by Brian Eno. Equally enamored of pop and the experimental—and, in fact, believing they can be one and the same—they make music that borrows from the past and synthesize their influences into something that is uniquely contemporary and theirs alone. Moroder for the melancholy? Can for the kids? Words can only express so much—it's time to listen.
Members of the band have been in Shy Child, BMX Bandits, Les Sans Culottes, Ryn Weaver, Lia Mice, and others.
