ArtemesiaBlack & Kenny Schick
ArtemesiaBlack tell romantic ghost stories within a sound that is a seductive blend of Americana gothic, alternative folk, singer songwriter, jazz, voix de ville and story telling. ArtemesiaBlack is husband and wife duo Kenny Schick (a multi-instrumentalist with many years of music industry experience) and Sabine Heusler Schick (fairly new to the performing music thing but not the whole ghost thing). Using buttery vocal harmonies, some wicked acoustic and electric guitar work, banjouke and various other instruments along with a lot of romantic notions, we tell stories about the lives and deaths of the ghosts we meet. The stories are sometimes quirky and funny, but always romantic, and weave through many different genres. The songs' themes are often sobering but we are about facing fears and seeing the lighter side of life (and death) we create theatrical, humorous and uplifting live shows.
Kenny Schick's 5th solo studio Cd - 'SHUFFLE' is Americana with colors of rock, punk and jazz, influences from a multi-genre past. Songs of longing, loss, hope - about love and politics and always thought provoking in his intense and deliberate lyric writing. Schick has a loyal following, and for good reason - he has very entertaining live shows, there is passion, laughter, tears, craftsmanship, and thought provoking lyricism. The shows take listeners on a journey with much interplay between him and the audience. Kenny is a generous performer and uses his quick comedic sense to balance the intensity of the songs, which often explore the darker realms of human experience.
