Floating Incantations

An evening of Live Chill Out Music, Avant Garde, Exotica, Lounge, Electronica and video Projections by three solo artists.
Featuring Lauren Lee, Damien Olsen and Jeremy Slater.

Lauren Lee :

A native of the St. Louis (MO) metropolitan area, her foray into creative music began as a teenager in the St. Louis Symphony Chorus, an experience that lead her on a wild goose chase of sorts to find her own sound in the adventurous music scene as a young innovator in a special brand of improvisation she calls “Vocal Instrumentalism”. Likened to female jazz pioneers that came before her like Carla Bley and Jen Shyu, Lee’s music has been described as, “equal parts hip jazz, avant adventure, and… something completely different” (John Pietaro, Dissident Arts). Her work intentionally inhabits this place of “between”, and in Lee’s case, the “between” is nestled between where jazz has been and where jazz is going. Her work is praised for both her creative takes on jazz standards and her adventurous yet accessible original music and has performed across North and South America, Europe, and Asia as both a bandleader and sidewoman.
