Crafting captivating songs about love and loss, Friend uses a variety of instruments from classical strings to a mandolin. His voice is reminiscent of early Conor Oberst and James Mercer of the Shins with a touch of Thom Yorke. Friend is bound to be a player in the anti-folk scene for years to come.
Friend will be performing Saturday, April 12th at the Art Walk in the cooler-than-cool Miami Design District. Friend, who is currently recording in NYC, will be performing at The Garden Lounge, 191-A NE 40th Street, Miami. Music starts at 7:30 p.m.
The Miami/Dade native took some time from recording to discuss with After Hours his new album, finding the right sounds and the liberal return policy at Radio Shack.
AFTER HOURS: I guess one of the obvious questions is, “How does a University of Miami jazz student become an indie folkster?”
