China Fox / Lauren Tenney and the Terribles / Isis Lune
Berklee Music Fest on Georges Island offers a free concert featuring three student groups whose music ranges from rock to blues to soul. These bands have performed at the House of Blues, SXSW, and opened for Jackson Browne.
Isis Lune: 2:00 p.m. - 2:50 p.m.
Led by Israeli vocalist Ella Joy Meir, the band creates a unique soundscape that combines electronic textures with a raw human element. Titles such as "In the Belly of a Whale" and "Bring Me the Moon" submerge the listener in the band's world: a realm of demons and magic, of vast oceans and endless skylines. The band’s music reflects its members' eclectic musical backgrounds, ranging from classical to ethnic, from jazz to rock and R&B. Isis Lune is Ella Joy Meir (vocals and piano), Asher Kurtz (guitar), Ran Gil (keys), Aaron Liao (bass), and Tim Merle (drums).
Lauren Tenney and the Terribles: 3:00 p.m. - 3:50 p.m.
Lauren Tenney and the Terribles are a band based in Boston. Their blues/rock sound combined with the influence of jazz harmonies gives them a fresh and soulful vibe. All five members are graduates of Berklee College of Music, where they met and started playing together about a year ago. Since then, the Terribles have been gigging in the Boston area as well as playing shows in New York City and Austin, Texas, during SXSW. The Terribles are currently working on their second EP of original music and have shows lined up in Boston and New York.
China Fox: 4:00 p.m. - 4:50 p.m.
Pop thunder vocals, electric nights, pseudo-synth, an ear for integration, and a thirst for the blues . . . so was born China Fox. With no certain origin, China Fox makes a home anywhere it finds itself, whether in the basements of small houses, in the woods, around bonfires or drum circles, or on makeshift dance floors. It constantly reinvents itself by collecting bits and pieces from the sounds it's drawn to. If you find yourself drawn in, too, come find your fox.
