Music: Black Audience
“Jayanthi’s great voice along with harmonies, a wicked percussion section, and fine melodies, sent chills down the spine.” —Life of Cyn
Join the hootenanny and dig the old blues for a new day. Topping many best new band lists, Black Audience—armed with washboards, banjos, spoons, and harps—delves deep into traditional sounds gone by with a disarming blend of rustic roots, twisted folk, and reimagined blues shot through with a gospel verve. Featuring Mike Gunther (Restless Souls), Robin Kyle (Valet), and powerhouse vocalist Jayanthi Kyle.
