Addi & Jacq LIVE
December 4, 2015
We discovered Addi & Jacq at 2015’s Princeton Harp Festival. They are: Addi McDaniel, “a powerhouse with a brass-plated voice” (Los Angeles Times), and Jacqueline Kerrod, praised by Classical Source as and “exceptionally virtuosic and sensitive harpist”. They met when they were both working on The Fantasticks on Broadway, and discovered they both yearned to write their own material.
Recently crowned the “best emerging band in NYC” as winners of the 2015 NPR-WNYC Battle of the Boroughs, they have a big, warm sound cleverly augmented by loops and processing. You feel like you’re hearing a much bigger band than a duo, which just goes to show how much you can do with two really good people. If you haven’t had a chance to hear their brilliant mix of covers and original songs, check them out on Soundcloud – and then buy their live album, now in stock at the Camac e-store!
