A few photos from last night’s final Bag Of Songs night of 2008 at The M Room with Pow Wow! and DeJesus. DeJesus kicked it off with a loose but excellent solo set which included a mix of old and new songs and a few covers thrown in, including a version of Kate Bush‘s Deeper Understanding. When not playing solo or with his own band Daniel also currently plays in Rasuputina. Pow Wow! closed it out with a fun and energetic set of original music. Eddie’s vocals take on a real soulful, almost Motown like feel that. really brings their songs to life live. See you all back at the M room on Sunday January 18th. Stay tuned for the lineup to be posted soon.

Capping off a great year of Bag Of Songs Presents nights with our last one of the year this Sunday December 28th at the M Room in Philadelphia. Three fantastic bands to warm up your cold December evening. First up, a former Bag Of Songs Artist Of The Day , DeJesus will be performing a solo set in which he promises new songs as well as some surprises. The first time I ever saw Daniel was a solo set and it blew me away, he’s an amazing cello player and vocalist, I’ve been a fan ever since. Next up is Brooklyn’s Pow Wow! the musical project of the the Nazareno brothers, Eddie and Jeff, they describe their sound as “like the lovechild of burt bacharach and the supremes. from the future. in outerspace. fit for all kinds of dancing (and floating) to.” and I have to say it’s right on the mark. Really cool. Closing out the night is Philadelphia’s Broken Trees fronted by the lovely and talented Liz Boyd on Fender Rhodes piano and vocals, I can best characterize their sound as falling somewhere between Nellie McKay and Kate Nash. You don’t want to miss it. See you there.

Artist To Watch : Daniel DeJesus

If you never thought a cello could rock, you need to hear Daniel DeJesus. With a voice eerily reminiscient of Jeff Buckley and original songs that would make any indie band proud, he is something that must be heard. I’ve seen him a number of times, with and without a full band, and the experience is mindblowing to say the least. Daniel’s first CD From The Subconscious has recently been released and is one of the true originals of 2006.

If you’re going to be in Philadelphia this weekend or next be sure and check him out as he has a couple shows upcoming.

The DeJesus Official Biography
A classically trained cellist and native Philadelphian with influences ranging from Bach to Radiohead, DeJesus began writing at the age of 14, experimenting with the guitar and piano with the belief that those were the only instruments a true modern song writer would use. Not until hearing the band ‘Rasputina’ and the Austrian cello quartet ‘Apoctalyptica’, did he finally decide to shed his misconceptions, and begin writing for the cello and voice. It was a new sound, a sound that was his, and it felt natural. While attending the University of the Arts to study Illustration, DeJesus continued writing, but kept it a secret from friends and family. He also performed with artists such as KD Lang and Patti LaBelle, as well as writing string arrangments for local artists like Natalie Walker for her Daughter Darling Project. After mustering up some serious courage, Dejesus began performing some of his own material, and was amazed at the reactions. Following the suggestions of a few friends, he recorded some of his music, and put together a small homemade marketing package, truly believing his music was something worth sharing, and sent it out to local recording companies. It eventually hit the ears of Ted Richardson (Hunkpapa, Ultrahuman, and The Acoustic Alternative) of Noisia Records, which spawned a collaboration that has created an eclectic, but highly approachable sound to add to the cello and rock repertoire.
