PERLHAZEOFFICIAL_680cFriday July 11, 2014, from 8:15 pm, tip jar. An Art Crawl special treat: PerlHaze, a new project by two well-known jazz singers Sophia Perlman and Terra Hazelton. Join us at Artword Artbar, as they preview their new material and their new approach to harmonising. They want to perform at Art Crawl to show as many people as possible the wonderful things they are up to.
“Toronto-based singers Terra Hazelton and Sophia Perlman have discovered a mutual love for music, harmonies and songwriting that goes far beyond the borders of their respective jazz careers. They are taking their first steps as aspiring songwriters, and learning to play (at press time) six instruments between them, and fine-tuning their uncanny vocal blend. As bootcamp before they record their own first full-length album in the fall, they are trekking across Western Canada, armed with their new-found harmony super-powers, and little collection of early recordings of the music that inspires them most.”  http://www.perlhaze.com/

Damon_Hankoff_cFriday July 11, from 7 to 8 pm, tip jar, a special Art Crawl opener. Accordionist and NY subway busker Damon Hankoff with a sample of his project Out of Sight of Land (brought to you at Artword Artbar by Annie Shaw).
Out of Sight of Land is the musical project of Damon Hankoff, a multifarious sideman and fledgling songwriter. Mr. Hankoff is a New Yorker by birth and by youth and is currently based out of Quebec City and Montreal. But actually most of the songs in question were written during a long sojourn in the Near East and subsequently honed in the cacophonic corridors of the NYC subway system. Among the topics Out of Sight of Land addresses are longing, the end of the world, and the salt, salt, sea. Musical influences include ancient masters (Palestrina, Gesualdo) and the New Weird America. Out of Sight of Land is on tour this October, after releasing a first album in June.  http://outofsightofland.bandcamp.com/
