SOUNDS OF LA

Second Saturday of  Each Month
July 11th- November 14th
TASTE Food Hall Courtyard Level | 5PM-8pm
Free & Open to the public

Arts Brookfield brings its popular music series to FIGat7th this summer. Sounds of LA, a monthly series of concerts in the TASTE Food Hall Courtyard, is an eclectic snapshot of the contemporary music scene. This season features the unique point of view of a local singer songwriter, the alt pop sounds of a Chicago quartet, and neo Jazz stylings of an LA based jazz trio. KCRW DJs spin tunes and host the shows.

Enjoy tasty bites from the eclectic eateries at TASTE Food Hall, drinks from the bar at Loteria Grill, and dinner at Mendocino Farms, George’s Greek Gril and City Tavern.  

July 11 | BLAH BLAH BLAH with KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad
August 8 | BLAH BLAH BLAH with KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez

Comprised of two friends from Iowa and two Chicago musicians, the midwest quartet found their footing in 2010 after being voted one of the Chicago Tribune’s next bands on the verge of breaking BIGTIME. Pioneering the genre of ballroom rock, the band has continually won fans over with their emotionally-driven yet upbeat songs that playfully strike a balance between the alternative and organic. (Sonicbid)  

According to charismatic frontman Solomon David, “We make music that is optimistic and resonant and warm, that takes people to a place of fantasy.” (Chicago Tribune) 

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, “Soon As I Get Home Tonight

September 12 | SAM MARSEY with KCRW DJ Aaron Byrd

A uniquely fresh and yet entirely familiar sound has been brewing in a small town 60 miles east of Los Angeles for the past 4 years. Sam Marsey has been sitting in at countless jam sessions, open mics, and late night watering holes, perfecting his soulful jazz/funk guitar sound and becoming intimately comfortable with his sultry and powerfully expressive voice. With his soothing delivery and emotional lyrics, he seamlessly invites every listener in to share his humble and contemplative perspectives on relationships, self respect and the priceless impact of a positive and caring outlook. After assembling a band of remarkably talented musicians from his native Inland Empire, Sam Marsey is currently recording his debut EP and poised to become one of LA’s most promising fresh faces in the Indie and Soul music scenes. 

Tune in to Sam Marsey on Sound Cloud.

October 10 | MOONCHILD with KCRW DJ Aaron Byrd
November 14| MOONCHILD with KCRW DJ Raul Campos

With only a couple of albums under their belt 2012’s Be Free and 2014’s Please Rewind horn/reed players Andris Mattson, Max Bryk, and Amber Navran of the jazz and soul trio Moonchild have built a considerable following among both the neo soul hungover crowd and traditional jazz lovers who don’t mind the genre’s evolution. For much of this, we have lead singer Amber Navran to thank, whose voice whistles and whooshes in and out of the band’s soul claps, horn melodies, and synth shades. This is most evident on Please Rewind’s “Don’t Wake Me,” “Just A Minute,” and “Nobody,” on which Navran’s voice evokes Erykah Badu-esque charm, but with a vocal-defying soprano that’s almost too cool for jazz and too controlled for soul. An arresting voice like hers knows no boundaries, and her bandmates Max and Andris create lush templates to adapt to any genre while still maintaining a jazz aesthetic. The end result is an infallible cross-breed of lush boom bap and soul power, aligning with Moonchild’s orbit. It’s no wonder artists like Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, Robert Glasper, James Poyser, Jazzy Jeff, 9th Wonder, Giles Peterson, and Leela James have been singing their praises. (Eric Tullis, Art Of Cool Festival 2015
