Kate Faust is far more than a garden variety singer-songwriter who creates and digitizes her own beats. The Philadelphia-based pop artist seamlessly pronounces the message of the erotic as power, embracing femininity throughout her soulfuland thoughtful lyrics.
In 2014, Faust released her first EP, Crucial Companion, under Soulspazm. Largely influenced by her jazz background, she quickly infused jazz vocals with modern, cutting-edge beats. Kates second EP, Eros, released May 2015, takes guidance from Audre Lords essay, The Uses of the Erotic. Within Eros, Faust explores the very sort of female-positive eroticism that often slips by the wayside, specifically within the world of pop music.
Fausts love affair with music flourished in high school when quality time spent with her grandfather resulted in a catalyzing appreciation of jazz music. She started taking piano lessons and recorded her first experimental album at the age of sixteen. Faust extended her formal musical training at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she studied jazz vocals. During her University experience, she continued to perfect her craft and began songwriting and acquainting herself with the basics of production. Faust is now the sole curator behind each of her tracks, performing for enthusiastic fans everywhere, from intimate venue to large public spaces.
Ton-Taun is a Lancaster-based band whose members include Jordan Capizzi (vocals), Doug Hynes (guitar), Aaron Binder (guitar), Rob Nye (bass), Sean Burke (drums), Katie Seifarth, and John Spurlock (keys). The band is just as interested in creating noisy, ambient textures as it is in crafting tight, hook-driven pop songs, and executes both with an energy that is uniquely theirs.
Over the six years that the band has existed, Ton-Taun has shared stages with Built to Spill, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Kopecky, Why?, Future Islands, No Age, Ra Ra Riot, Lavender Diamond, and Buke and Gase.
Ton-Taun has self released four albums, the most recent of which being 2015s, Youre Not Doing it Right. While Ton-Tauns studio work has been praised for its densely layered arrangements, fans of the band will tell you that from the stage is where Ton-Taun shines brightest.
This local singer/songwriter has played with a number of local bands, and also mesmerizes with her solo act. Her beautiful voice will be candy to your ears!
