Bailen

January 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Local 506, 506 W Franklin St
Chapel Hill, NC 27516 United States
$12

Gorgeous harmonies, striking arrangements and evocative songwriting marks BAILEN as an undeniable and welcome new arrival. The NYC-based trio — fraternal twins Daniel (vocals/bass/synth/guitar), David (vocals/drums), and younger sister Julia Bailen (vocals/guitar) — will release their debut album Thrilled To Be Here, produced by GRAMMY-Award winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, The War on Drugs), on April 26th, 2019 via Fantasy Records. Last night BAILEN celebrated the announcement with a sold-out hometown show at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. BAILEN friends Joseph joined as special guests in an encore. The group’s beguiling three-part harmonies fuel the album’s first single “I Was Wrong,” a statement of compassion and self-reflection. BAILEN explain: “The song is about coming together and listening to the other side of an argument, hearing another perspective, and being able to say I was wrong. It was inspired by the growing global divide in ideology and a general unwillingness to hear out someone with differing opinions. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is admit your faults, but often it’s the only way to move forward.” “I Was Wrong” is out now and available to stream HERE. Thrilled To Be Here is available now for pre-order HERE. BAILEN’s otherworldly musicality springs from a very deep well, in fact, it’s in their DNA. Raised in New York by their classically trained parents, Daniel, David and Julia immersed themselves in the family’s diverse record collection. The group’s highly collaborative songs are formed by three very different individuals who were all inspired by literature and a love of language. The resulting confident, meticulous songcraft of Thrilled To Be Here is rooted in the young group’s preternatural dexterity, insight and lyrical bite. Detail-oriented and precise, the members of BAILEN found the perfect counterpoint in producer Congleton’s more open approach: “We think micro, and John was really good at thinking macro for the record,” Julia observes. “First records are special because you’ve spent your whole life writing them. Recording our album in a month at the same studio with one producer meant that we kept the creativity, but also found the cohesiveness.” BAILEN has emerged by cultivating a passionate following via their live show, guesstimating over 300 shows to date, and touring and collaborating with such artists as Amos Lee, The Lone Bellow, Joseph, Oh Wonder, and others. The band has also announced a U.S. headline tour that begins February 20th in Pontiac, MI., and includes shows at Chicago’s Schubas on the 21st and L.A.’s Bootleg Theatre on March 7th.

Onyx Club Boys Onyx Club Boys is an acoustic string band (violin, guitar, upright bass, and drums) rooted in Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy Jazz sounds of 1930’s Paris, and Stuff Smith’s New York City Swing. However, being from 21st Century North Carolina, their diverse influences take the music beyond borders. It’s a trip around the world, which will make you swoon, tap your feet, and realize how universally similar music really is. “100% genuine. No backing tracks necessary! Curiously exotic, yet pleasantly familiar.” The band just released their new album, “Million Color Vision” in the Fall of 2017. It features catchy originals along with a few classics, and was carefully crafted and recorded over the last few years. Appearances have included Shakori Hills Festival, Festival for the Eno, Haw River Ballroom, Cat’s Cradle, Raleigh First Night, Artsplosure, NC Museum of Art, WUNC’s Back Porch Music at American Tobacco Campus Durham, Carrboro Django Reinhardt Festival, National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and many more. Members have played in bands such as The Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Old Ceremony, Dialli Cissokho and Kaira Ba, and the Paperhand Puppet Intervention band. “The cool dexterity of their playing binds together the broad catalog” – Grayson Currin, music editor Indy Week, NC
