With a voice echoing Jeff Buckley, the arrangement dexterity of Nick Drake, and the explorative spirit of Thom Yorke, David Sheingold is poised to make his mark on the music world.
2016 was a big year for David. Having toured and recorded with members of R.E.M., The Posies, and Gregory Alan Isakov, Sheingold performed at a KEXP-sponsored concert, appeared on stage at eTown, and saw his mesmerizing debut album, Aquarian Dream, featured as Album of the Day on iTunes.
Enion Pelta-Tiller began classical violin studies at age 3, but her education was always supplemented by improvisation lessons from her jazz guitarist father. By 16 she had taught herself to compose impromptu melodies in styles from classical sonatas to East Indian ragas and jazz standards. Enion attended Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD, working towards a viola performance degree, while also studying english at Johns Hopkins.
Eventually she landed in NYC, where she performed cutting edge music straddling punk, free jazz, and classical with various local musicians, and landed a gig with the crown prince of Hungary’s New Wave music scene, Menyhart Jeno, as the violinist in Mr Con and the Bioneers. She traveled to Hungary in the summer of 2001 to play the main stage at the Pepsi Sziget, Europe’s largest music festival, playing immediately before Run DMC and Morcheeba.
Enion has performed onstage with Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bob Weir and Vince Welnick of the Grateful Dead, Darol Anger, Darrol Scott, John Cowan, Fareed Haque and many others.
