Three of the most distinctive emerging vocalists in jazz soul: L.A. artist Tiffany Gouché performs sinewy, rich extensions of the art form, citing D’Angelo and R. Kelly as influences; Seattle’s creative force SassyBlack (Catherine Harris-White) spreads positive vibrations worldwide through her own “electronic pyschedelic soul”; and Maiah Manser shows why she is taking the city by storm. The beloved DJ Riz opens the night. (Curated by Space.Theory.)
Three of the most distinctive emerging vocalists in jazz-soul/pop comprise this groove-driven, female-powered lineup: L.A. artist Tiffany Gouché performs sinewy, rich extensions of the art form, and cites D’Angelo and R. Kelly as influences; “noir pop” artist Maiah Manser strives to fuse the digital and the organic in every aspect of her music; and Seattle’s creative force SassyBlack (Catherine Harris-White) spreads positive vibrations worldwide through her own “electronic psychedelic soul.”
On her way to reigning over West Coast R&B, Tiffany Gouché exudes a commanding sensuality through her powerhouse, rich alto vocals. Gouché complements her own stunning performances with piano and production talents to match. The soulful force has collaborated with fellow southern Californian upstart Iman Omari, and she has shared the stage with free-spirited genre-benders Willow Smith, KING, and Jesse Boykins III. The beat-making songstress is eagerly welcomed back to Seattle after making her debut in this city this past July.
Singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Maiah Manser, who celebrates her upcoming Second Skin EP, has earned a name for herself both as a solo artist and collaborator, having worked with Mary Lambert, The Esoterics, and Pollens. “Manser layers her smoky, seductive voice with electronic noises, strings, and piano, sounding at once like something coming out of a Victrola and the speakers at a Belltown nightclub” (The Stranger).
SassyBlack self-describes her sound as hologram funk. The new spacey soul album of Catherine Harris-White, titled No More Weak Dates, resembles R&B fused with obscure psych-mood jams. She releases her first solo project after emerging on the scene as one-half of queer AfroFuturist hip-hop dream duo THEESatisfaction. The singer’s influences stem from her diverse passions, which include activism against institutional racism, science fiction, spirituality and Michael Jackson.
Opening the night is DJ Riz, music scholar and veteran on-air KEXP presence.
