8:15 Cabin Seeking
Cabin Seeking is Julia Reidy on guitar (Berlin), Mary Rapp on cello (Sydney), and Rueben Lewis on trumpet (Melbourne). This project combines brute strength, jazz virtuosity, rock emotion and noisy catharsis. All "sounds-like" references can be set aside; Shug Avery has created a genre and style all her own. This project explodes with rock, jazz and pop influences through engrossing improvisation.
