Last fall, Arc Iris released Icon of Ego, its third groundbreaking album, as a trio that packs the heft of a far bigger band with fully realized sonic and visual intensity. Overcoming rebuffs and rejections, Arc Iris has become an unstoppable force out of necessity. On Icon of Ego, they deliver heavily and ask nothing in return.
For three fantastic Thursday nights in April Arc Iris will take over the Lizard Lounge and allow their music to take them, and their audience into the wild unknown. Each week includes a special guest. Tonight's guest is RACHEL SUMNER
The groups two previous albums, Arc Iris and Moon Saloon, were both released to critical acclaim and fervent fan embrace including here at The Lizard Lounge. Originally formed in Providence, R.I., by singer-songwriter Jocie Adams who was coming off a term with The Low Anthem, the group initially embodied an eight-piece rock orchestra, creating innovative dynamics of rhythm and melody with a full color palette. Four years on, Arc Iris are just three musicians: lead vocalist Adams, keyboardist and sample artist Zach Tenorio-Miller, and drummer Ray Belli. They have crafted a vividly expressionistic new album that reflects both the groups protean talents as well as its journey of survival.
Rachel Sumner is best known as the guitarist and one of two primary songwriters and singers in the band Twisted Pine, but her musical interests and curiosity extend beyond even the most progressive approach to traditional string-band instrumentation. Her debut solo EP, Anything Worth Doing, will better acquaint listeners with the breadth of her songwriting and production capabilities.
