Betty Who / French Horn Rebellion / Evolfo Doofeht
April 18, 2013
Betty Who blends indie, pop, and dance music into an irresistible mix of bold soundscapes, Top 40 hooks, and knowing lyrics. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, she played cello by age four and began writing her first pop songs in her early teens. Her voice is striking and memorable, and with her signature heels and spiked blonde hair, the six-foot-two Aussie can’t help but take you higher. After uploading just two songs, she has hit 20,000 plays on Soundcloud, and the music video release for her single “Somebody Loves You” generated more than 6,000 views in two days. She has been praised by countless acclaimed pop music blogs, including Arjan Writes, SnapCacklePop, Pop On And On, Socialite Life, Electrocutie, Electro Queer, and the largest music blog in Australia, Is It Bush Week. She is now working with a handful of top-notch producers, primarily Peter Thomas (Hoodie Allen, Neon Hitch, Black Cards), in preparation for her highly anticipated debut EP, expected for release this April. In the midst of all her success, she is a student at Berklee College of Music.
French Horn Rebellion is a brotherly duo between Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. In 2007, younger brother Robert was playing French horn in orchestra and decided to make hot beats instead. After telling the conductor that Mahler isn’t fun anymore, he asked his bassoon-toting brother David to join with him. And so it was a French Horn Rebellion began. Since then, the boys have travelled the world with French horns slung over their backs, playing with MGMT, Yelle, Cut Copy, and others along the way. Their debut album, The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion, is now available.
Evolfo Doofeht has been gypsyin' and funkin' so long that even their mamas thinks that their minds have gone. A group of demons from all over the United States has formed to provide a life of shows on the road and music of American funk and gypsy influence. Thus they've coined the term "gypsy-funk." Formed in 2009 by Berklee student Matt Gibbs, Evolfo Doofeht has spent the last three years honing their party sound and performance. The Evolfo boys are known for traveling between New York and Boston, colleges in the Northeast, and sometimes venturing out for shows on the Golden Coast. At long last, in September 2012, Evolfo Doofeht independently released their first EP of original music entitled The Food of Love. Shortly after the release these lost boys of the USA received love from their current hometown of Boston. They received the award for International Artist of the Year at 2012’s Boston Music Awards Ceremony.
