Arc Iris – Singing So Sweetly

Apparently Jocie Adams has left The Low Anthem and started her own band, Arc Iris. It also would appear as if she has also grown two extra arms. Apparently Anti Records like wonderfully talented women with four arms as they are releasing the debut LP on April 1st. I wonder if the four arms will be some April Fools joke or something.

Anyway, I digress. Here is some info on Jocie’s new project from the fine folks at Anti – Arc Iris is inspired by 70s pop, folk and country traditions, cabaret, jazz and classical. The eclectic new project from the former Low Anthem member draws on diverse music from Led Zeppelin to Grizzly Bear, from Joni Mitchell to Dirty Projectors, and from Miles Davis to Chopin. A singer, multi-instrumentalist, classical composer and former NASA researcher, Adams formed the collective with primary musicians Zach Tenorio-Miller (piano), Ray Belli (drums), Max Johnson (bass), Robin Ryczek (cello) and Mike Irwin (trumpet) among others to present her ambitious new songs.
