Grassroots; Siamese Jazz Club
Met het gras tussen de tenen staan muzikanten muziek te spelen in een intieme en gezellige setting. Ideaal voor de luie zondagmiddag.
Don’t be misled by the title: Siamese Jazz Club’s sound is born from a highly diverse and infectious melting pot of influences. SJC is just as deep into the world of R&B, HipHop & Soul as it’s improvisational jazzy undertones. The love child of prolific Asheville music darlings, Simon Thomas George & CaroMia Tiller, SJC was formed in the summer of 2015. Always teasing the line of musicality and emotional depth, SJC embraces the affection of music aficionados and the casual listener alike.
Simon is something of a wizard on the keyboard. At 24, he has a striking handle on his instrument. He is both the bassist and keyboardist, grooving the left hand synth-bass while his right hand flies independently across the spectrum of his keyboard, allowing him creative freedom in the chordal realm. Simon adds to his ministry of talents, looping beatboxing and keyboards to essentially be a band in himself. CaroMia’s transcendent voice twirls and spins on top, and is as much an instrument in itself as a carrier of lyrics. Saluted by AskAsheville as “a sultry and seductive voice you’d swear you’ve only heard dotting the landscape of your dreams”, CaroMia garners the room’s attention for her vast range of expression. Together, they create an exceptionally dynamic and textured sound that does not seem to belong to a two-piece band. Offering honest, heartfelt lyrics, breathtaking vocals and deep grooves to make you move, Siamese Jazz Club serves the body, mind, and soul.
