Bailen with Cypress Live from the Red Room
November 7, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
BAILEN’s gorgeous harmonies, striking arrangements and evocative songwriting springs from a very deep well. Growing up in NYC, the siblings, David, Daniel (twins!) and Julia Bailen were raised by their professional orchestral musician parents, and the young trio immersed themselves in a record collection that included Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Carole King and The Band. Their amazing three-part harmonies have been compared to The Staves and Fleet Foxes. Named one of Sofar Sounds’ Artists to Watch in 2018, BAILEN has toured or collaborated with The Lone Bellow, Amos Lee, Joseph and American Authors, among many others. Modern, melodic and soulful, BAILEN is twisting pop music in new directions, an undeniable, and welcome new arrival.
Cypress is the project of Dallas Texas native, Boston-based singer-songwriter Ben Higginbotham. Ben formed the group in 2017 with several of his college friends. Based in simple melodies, the music allows his lyrics to shine in a way that evokes artists such as Ray LaMontagne, Maggie Rogers, or James Bay. The band’s debut single, “Oh Canada,” was recorded in Austin, Texas, by longtime collaborator Taylor Tatsch.
