So, without further ado, here are this week’s Artist Ticket picks:
Friday, November 8 I Eastern Bloc Party with Ashia & The Bison Rouge, Clearly Beloved and Bucharest Drinking Team – Seattle, Washington Ashia Grzesik’s songs and compositions, written and sung with the cello, reflect her longing for her Slavic roots, while adding the pop, rock, indie folk and the classical music from the land she grew up in. This comes naturally from being born in Wroclaw, Poland, raised in the US, and performing internationally. Her belief is to bring and celebrate Polish and Slavic culture and ancestry for new audiences, as well as using the cello, non-traditionally, as an instrument of accompaniment and melodic lead.
Her sound and voice, at once ethereal and demanding, are pop/rock, yet, exude classical and folk influences. Portland Monthly said: “…one can’t help but hear a collage of influences. Grzesik can certainly give Joanna Newsom a run for her whimsy, she possesses the old-world charm and quirky dramatics of Regina Spektor and the cello-punk instincts of Bonfire Madigan, and her voice vacillates between the throaty alto of Amanda Palmer and the ethereal soprano of Maria Callas. Simply put, she’s got a little bit of everything.”Arts >
