Arc Iris crystallizes the evolution of composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Jocie Adams, a former core member of renowned indie-folk band The Low Anthem. This is a breakaway moment for Adams, who now takes center stage as composer, lyricist, and lead vocalist. Embracing her new role as auteur, Adams has created a genre-bending style that often shifts between cabaret-infused jazz, orchestral sophistication, grimy outlaw country, delicate and whimsical harmonies, and big-band exhilaration sometimes all in the same song. Hers is an all-together different world where fantastical whimsy goes hand in hand with down-to-earth grit, and where rigorous classical training inflects but never softens the visceral rawness of hard-won experience.
is a musician, writer and ethnomusicologist based in New York City. Trained at the Juilliard School, her work as a violist bridges classical, jazz and experimental improvised music and has been profiled in Jazz Times, DownBeat, the Globe and Mail and the New York Times. She performs and teaches regularly in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, and is a faculty member at the New England Conservatory in Boston and Mannes College The New School for Music in New York. Kalmanovitch's research in theoretical psychology and ethnomusicology has explored the history of science, postcolonial identities and musical globalization and has been published in The American Psychologist, World of Music and New Sound. She is currently working on book examining the role of music and professional musicians as agents of social change around the world.
