Description

New York icon Justin Bond returns to Soho with a heady mix of glamour, gender queer cabaret and sexy provocation. 'A glitter encrusted extravaganza... dizzying, riotous and unexpectedly moving; for all his superficial fabulousness, Bond's emotional nakedness is what makes him fierce.' Time Out New YorkDendrophile is Justin Vivian Bond's first full-length album as a solo artist. It encapsulates WhimsyMusic, the various - and constantly evolving - dimensions of Bond's career post-Kiki and Herb. The material comprising Dendrophile reveals the variety of Bond's artistic passions and is greatly influenced by early `70s folk-pop variety records by artists that defied genre and could easily go from protest songs to jazz standards, from adapting a traditional folk song to singing cabaret music. Features original compositions and select covers of Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins/Joan Baez, and Exuma. Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), plays piano, serves as bandleader, and produced the album with help from Pat Dillett (David Byrne, Caetano Veloso, Laurie Anderson). Like V's shows, the album finds Bond surrounded by a significant cross-section of NYC talent: Sam Amidon, Rob Moose, Shahzad Ismaily, Brad Albetta, Doug Wieselman; It also features singers Beth Orton and Dawn Landes, among others. Justin Vivian Bond has won Obie, Bessie and Ethyl Eichelberger Awards, and was a Tony Award nominee. As one-half of the performance duo Kiki and Herb, Bond toured the world, headlining Carnegie Hall twice, and performing at The Sydney Opera House and London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. For Fans of: Rufus Wainright, Antony & The Johnsons, Nilsson, Marianne Faithful, Sufjan Stevens, Davendra Banhart, Emmylou Harris.
