About this Event

PEOPLE'S CHAMPS

http://www.peopleschamps.com/

"People's Champs creatively deliver a unique blend of powerful lyrics and danceable rhythms that relate to people from all walks of life." (Wax Poetics)

People’s Champs is inspired by the idea that music is for everyone. The band combines message-driven songwriting, a creative blend of analog & digital production and unstoppable dance rhythms to create a truly original sound. With influences as wide-ranging as Sharon Jones, tUnE-yArDs, William Onyeabor, and Prince, critics are calling People’s Champs “A dance party waiting to happen” (Consequence of Sound) and "...somewhere between Budos Band & the Flaming Lips" (Deli Magazine).

The band is fronted by experimental soul singer Starr Busby, best known for her work with Gorillaz and Grammy Award-winner Esperanza Spalding. People’s Champs’ horn section works in-studio with Beyoncé Knowles and performed/arranged key parts on the Grammy Award-winning song “Love on Top.” They’re also the touring horn section for Boy George & Culture Club.

JEAN ROHE

https://www.jeanrohe.com/

Jean Rohe writes one-of-a-kind narrative songs, concerned as much with the internal world as with the external. Her latest record as a bandleader, Sisterly, produced by longtime collaborator Liam Robinson, is a collection of songs about communication and missed connections, and tackles topics from love, lust, and longing to prisons, police violence, and migration.

She is perhaps best known for her much-covered 2012 video single, “National Anthem: Arise! Arise!” an aspirational alternative national anthem performed with choir and brass ensemble. Her award-winning 2013 release Jean Rohe & The End of the World Show was hailed by an Elmore Magazine reviewer as “enchanting” and “remarkable in so many ways I can think of no comparison.”

Jean tours regularly with Robinson & Rohe, her rootsy songwriting duo with Liam Robinson, and continues work on a performance memoir, The Odysseus Agreement, for which she's received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project, and others. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
