About this Event

Bedouine, a gallicized riff on bedouin, the nomad, the wanderer. Anyone can assume such a name, but Azniv Korkejian has an experience of what it means, the type of ground it covers. “Moving around so much caused me at some point to feel displaced, to not really belong anywhere and I thought that was a good title.” Her development was shaped by political landscapes and family opportunities, her adult life patterned by paths of her own. Born in Aleppo, Syria to Armenian parents, Korkejian spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. They settled in Boston, then Houston, but she split for L.A. as soon as she could. A casual offer to stay on a horse farm took her to the rolling hills of Lexington, Kentucky, followed by a year in Austin, and a trip east to Savannah for a degree in sound design. Returning to L.A., she discovered a close-knit community of musicians in Echo Park that started to feel like home. Maybe America is just a highway that leads back to L.A.

Born and raised in Kansas City, MO, Gus Seyffert began studying music at a young age. He started working professionally at the age of 14, playing dinner theaters and jazz gigs throughout KC. At 17, he moved to Los Angeles to study jazz bass with Charlie Haden at California Institute of the Arts. He left college after two years to launch his career.

Living in Silver Lake, Gus expanded into playing different styles of music and became a staple in LA’s East Side music scene, playing around town with his band Willoughby, as well as Inara George, Greg Kurstin, Mike Andrews, The Haden Triplets, and Benji Hughes, among many others. Through his work with top tier musicians and producers such as Greg Kurstin, Joey Waronker, Ariel Rechtshaid, Glyn Johns, and Nigel Godrich, Gus found himself recording and touring with acts such as Adele, Beck, The Bird And The Bee, The Black Keys, Norah Jones, Michael Kiwanuka, Roger Waters and Sia to name a few.

Gus’ obsession with collecting of vintage instruments and recording equipment led to him spending more and more time in the studio as a producer and engineer. He now owns and operates the recording studio Sargent Recorders in LA where he’s been developing bands, writing, and making records. Some production credits include Beck, Michael Kiwanuka, Bedouine, Dr. Dog, Michelle Branch, Jenny Lewis, James Supercave, Spain, Steady Holiday, and Trixie Whitley.
