Show Info

Legendary cult heroes Elysian Fields have always travelled in mysterious waters. Led by the enigmatic New York co-composers Jennifer Charles (vocals) and Oren Bloedow (guitar), the music born of their collaboration is impossible to categorize. They carry a torch for nature, sex, love, the cycle of death and rebirth, and the sounds of folk and jazz ballads, no wave and classical music, seamlessly interwoven into a style that is at once languorously romantic and tough. Their colleagues and fans read as a virtual who’s who in the music world. It is no wonder the rest of the Downtown Indie community looks to them when assembling their own bands. A band often overlooked, and yet highly significant, since their inception in 1995, Elysian Fields have always brought an unusual rigor and otherworldly sense of nature and feeling to their work, creating a sound that defies rock n roll convention, where Charles’ poetry is just as important as the delicious sounds that weave through the lyrics. Oren Bloedow, a New York maverick, who grew up in the 70's at 53rd and 3rd Avenue, no less, brings not only his masterly and unique command of the guitar to the stage, but his unparralled finesse of song craft. Co writer Jennifer Charles is possessed of unusual songsmithery, voice and spirit; she seems to be channneling the songs from a mysterious source. Along with Oren and Jennifer, this show will also feature the dynamic rhythm section of Tony Leone (drums) and Robert Jost (bass) The band’s latest release is Last Night On Earth (Ojet). Little wonder that famed music author of “The Dark Stuff”, Nick Kent wrote “maybe we have their out-of-the-mainstreamness to thank for a sound that is still unique — as sensual as a sleepwalker’s wet dream.”
