Wednesday, April 2nd
ABHAY SINGH & FRIENDS
Abhay Singh & Friends was formed in Autumn 2011 when, while attending grad school to study theology after a bad breakup, Abhay Singh rounded up musicians to perform songs that allegorically related the Bible to his experiences of heartbreak and finding new love. The band performs Roots Rock and Doo-Wop music influenced by Bruce Springsteen, Roy Orbison, and Leonard Cohen. Inspired by the song structures and emotional candidness of contemporary pop music and club music, over the holidays Abhay and his musician friends recorded an 8-song album of folk, klezmer, and doo-wop music, prominently featuring harmonium, an instrument popular in the music of the Indian subcontinent.
Hailing from Pennington, New Jersey, James Panther has been unwaveringly dedicated to making music since 11 years old when he joined the American Boychoir in 1996. Fast forward to now-- Panther is a piano player, pop/rock/soul singer, songwriter, and producer with a dynamic, haunting and powerful voice. His songs and performances are both intimate and high energy: uncompromisingly honest accounts of personal experience and hooky self-empowerment anthems with driving beats and unforgettable pop melodies.
After years of classical/choral training and various leading roles in musical theatre productions, Panther went to study songwriting at Boston's Berklee College of Music, and made 2 albums under the name Jamie Treadwell, playing extensively in Boston and Cambridge. Deeply driven to create a unique sound and find his authentic voice, Panther left Berklee to develop artistically in radical queer artistic communities in New York, San Francisco, and Portland, OR. In addition to performing in major cities, Panther spent months at a time creatively developing in rural radical queer sanctuaries and gatherings in the pacific northwest and Tennessee, as well as in spiritual ceremonies of Native American tradition. Panther's debut EP weaves together his urban sensibility and his extensive experience as a rurally dwelling gypsy traveller and lover of nature and progressive community.
He proudly and passionately stands for truth, self-respect, self-empowerment, the health and wellness of queer communities, and creating a safer world for young queer kids to grow up.
