11 Mar ISHI – SXSW SPOTLIGHT
If you live in Texas and love live music then you’ve probably heard of Ishi and their live performances. If for some reason you haven’t either you don’t fancy a good time or you’ve been living under a rock. Ishi has held steady court across Texas consistently selling out shows and creating one of most energetic feel-good live music environments that one can encounter. Ishi has won countless awards and has been making waves across the country playing major festivals like SXSW, Meltdown Music Festival, Wicker Park Fest and more, touring their latest album, Digital Wounds which was released April, 2013.
JT Mudd and Brad Dale are the two masterminds behind the electronic group which is properly adorned by an incredibly talented guitarist, Rocky Otley, and drumming phenom Jonathan Merla. Ishi was born out of an idea to blend the story-telling and organic instrumentation of traditional folk music with the endless possibilities that are available through electronic production.
Ishi also collaborates with some of the best names and labels in the business. One of our favorite releases is the most recent with MIOW x SXSW alumni Mark Hill – Artful (The Original Artful Dodger). Check out Toss & Turn released last year on Audiophile Deep.
We know Ishi will bring the house down at SXSW as their bio explains, “high-energy dance floors combined with the subtle undertones of inner-exploration combine to create a concert experience that is unequivocally one-of-a-kind.” There’s a reason we chose them to headline the showcase and we can’t wait to share this experience with you!
