BANDCAMP

Jennifer Charles and Oren Bloedow are the writers who make up the critically-acclaimed, under-the-radar New York band that formed in 1995 and went on to develop a cult following of faithful fans around the world. A dalliance with a major label beginning in 1996 ended with their edgy and uncompromising second album with Steve Albini, which drove the label and band apart, ending their contract. They went on to forge a path outside of the mainstream, recording with a number of independent labels over the years. Side projects include two albums of Sephardic music on John Zorn’s Tzadik label under the name La Mar Enfortuna, the supergroup Lovage featuring Jennifer along with Dan the Automator and Mike Patton, and many more recordings, including those of French stars Jean-Louis Murat and Wax Tailor, and experimental composer JG Thirlwell. Jennifer has also maintained a career in theater alongside music, with leading roles in numerous Off-Broadway productions over the years. In 2016, she originated the part of the Girl Angel in Du-Yun’s opera Angel’s Bone, which went on to win the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Music. Oren has served as a secret musical weapon for a host of artists, from Meshell Ndegeocello to Marina Abramović to Anohni. Jennifer and Oren have also composed for theater and dance pieces, and their music has appeared in television, film, and commercials around the world. Elysian Fields regularly tour in Europe, where their most loyal audience can be found in France. They are “musicians’ musicians,” consistently attracting top players from around the world to sit in with their live sets. In 2015, they opened a music venue in Brooklyn called The Owl Music Parlor. Their most recent release is the full-length album Pink Air.
