The iconic band BoDeans sent its charismatic frontman Kurt Neumann to record at the Indaba Music Loft on the Bowery in New York City. Witness this intimate musical moment on Indaba’s music channel Suite 268. Check out Kurt’s soulful interpretation of John Mayer’s Say as well as the original Everything You Wanted.
The BoDeans just released their eleventh album, entitled American Made. And truthfully, these tracks might be best described as the sound of America-made music.
Meet Tauk, a band that delivers a unique blend of funk, jazz, pop and rock with a fresh, experimental spirit. Since forming earlier this decade, the NYC-based group has built an impressive DIY buzz scoring opening gigs for O.A.R, MOE., Robert Randolph & the Family Band and many more.
We were happy to have some locals pop by the loft shortly after our shoot with PK. Tauk has a wonderful musical vision that pushes the envelope for many fans and we’re so excited to bring you this vision through their Beatles cover in the video above.
We’ve had so much fun recording bands the last few weeks so please remember to keep them coming! If you’re interested in participating in our Suite 268 series, just email us at email@example.com
Drawing influences from Bon Iver, Avett Brothers and David Bazan, George Kamel effectively unites the ethereal and earthly using an impressive array of folk instrumentation, while guiding the listener through haunting seasons of beauty and pain.
As a part of our Suite 268 series, Kamel offered us a solo version of Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound” (featuring The Civil Wars). Watch this intimate little scene from our Studio B in the live video above.
Be sure to stay updated with all of Suite 268′s latest video from Indaba Music HQ or the Indaba loft here.
Though we’ve recently moved our office, Suite 268, our performance space and loft in New York City, is still alive and thriving. We recently invited Rachel Yamagata to stop by the space to perform “You Won’t Let Me” and “Dealbreaker,” off of her new record, Chesapeake. Her voice is just incredible!
