Aberdeen is an indie rock brass band based out of Brooklyn, NY. They create an overwhelming wall of sound with soaring, horn-driven melodies, supported by a bed of distorted guitars and raucous drums. Think a Trombone Shorty/Explosions in the Sky/Kamasi Washington super group. Brian Plautz is the primary songwriter in the band, along with Alex Conroy and Shubh Saran. The eight-piece band, featuring two saxophones, trombone, trumpet, two guitars, bass and drums never ceases to fill a room with energy.
Childish Japes is half "collective," half "art project," and half "band," equalling 150% pure creative freedom.
Lauren Desberg was born into to a musical family. She has been living and breathing music since day one. Desberg discovered her love of jazz while attending the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) where she honed her vocal skills. While attending high school, she was selected to participate in the Gibson-Baldwin Grammy Jazz Ensembles, the Brubeck Summer Jazz Colony and performed with ensembles at The Monterey and Playboy Jazz Festivals.
Desberg attended Berklee College of Music in Boston on scholarship and graduated in 2012. While at Berklee, Desberg won the ASCAP Foundation’s Leiber and Stoller Music Award. She sang with the Beantown Swing Orchestra and participated in numerous Berklee events and ensembles. During her time at Berklee, Lauren recorded her first EP, Sideways, produced by Gretchen Parlato. Sideways and her single I Wanna Be Like You were reviewed by NPR and receives airplay on Jazz radio stations worldwide.
Desberg has been wowing audiences with her vocal prowess from an early age. She has performed at some of the most renowned jazz venues in the country including Blue Note in NYC, Catalina Bar and Grill in Los Angeles and Scullers in Boston. The Harlem-based vocalist manages to simultaneously pay homage to traditional jazz while expressing herself by adding her own organic, contemporary feel in a fresh take on standards performed by jazz greats. Lauren Desberg embodies the spirit of her generation putting her own spin on the standard jazz repertoire. Welcome to millennial jazz.
