Jihae - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Jihae
NYC based singer/composer/multi media artist, JIHAE traversed the world in her youth form Korea, Nigeria, Sweden, UK to New York.
Her entrancing molten vocals and alternate universe of beats have been compared to Grace Jones, David Bowie and Portishead.

How JIHAE managed to write, record, and co-produce (with Jean-Luc Sinclair, executive produced by Dave Stewart) an album as moving and soulful as her upcoming 4th new release, Illusion of You is hard to fathom.
Building on the experimental textures that have been the bedrock of her prior three records, Illusion of You is a ground breaking offering with poignant and melodic hooks, featuring an epic orgasm themed song It Just Feels co written by the legendary Leonard Cohen, Dave Stewart and JIHAE.

This show will be a not to be missed one time showcase of Illusion of you before the upcoming release in 2013.
