Long is the Walk
Long Is The Walk, the solo project of Boston-based cellist, singer-songwriter and composer Jeremy Harman is set to release its debut album Spirits and Ghosts, a hauntingly hypnotic collection of songs and virtuosic instrumentals which weave together coming-of-age tales of an individual struggling to hold on to dreams and purpose as the naivete of youth fades and is replaced by an obsession with the finite nature of time and of life. Fleet-fingered acoustic guitar ostinatos pulsate throughout, layers of cello spend as much time chugging viscerally as they do whispering ominously, and lush, understated vocal harmonies bring to mind Bon Iver and Andrew Bird, all set against the backdrop of the tight jazz-tinged rhythm section of drummer Jens Ellerhold and upright bassist Joey Pierog. The end result is a dream-like mixture in which raw grit repeatedly gives way to atmospheric beauty.
Culomba is a versatile vocal trio based in Boston. Sophie Michaux, Adam Simon, and Lysander Jaffe draw from their diverse experiences as singers, instrumentalists, composers, and travelers, performing powerful polyphonic music in an intimate trio setting. Their eclectic repertoire includes folk harmony singing from Georgia, Corsica, Ukraine, and the Balkans, eastern European dance tunes, early music, original compositions, and more. Culomba just recently returned from a two-month European tour with Northern Harmony.
