“Swoon-inducing. Like taking a triple-shot of Absinthe before stepping outside of the bar just in time to see the sun exploding.”
~
San Francisco Weekly

“…a distinctive mix of old and new — layers of sound that feel more like orchestrations than a solo instrument.”
~
National Public Radio
A one-woman orchestra, Zoë Keating uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon
layer of cello, to create lush, beautiful and otherworldly music.

Born in Canada and a cellist since the age of eight, Zoë pursued electronic music and contemporary
composition as part of her Liberal Arts studies at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. After
graduation she moved to San Francisco and found work as an information architect at a software
startup while moonlighting as a cellist in various rock bands. Unemployed following the dot-com crash
of 2001, Zoë used her year off to focus on music, eventually combining the cello and the computer to
develop her signature style of live-layered music. She began composing music for small films and
experimental theater projects and performing for late night crowds in the San Francisco warehouse
where she lived with other artists.

Now, Zoë has a devoted, global audience. Her self-released albums have several times reached #1 on
the iTunes classical chart, she has over 1 million followers on Twitter and her grassroots approach and
artists' advocacy has garnered her much public attention and press. She served as a board member for
the San Francisco chapter of the Recording Academy, was named a Young Global Leader by the World
Economic Forum and serves on the boards of the Magik Magik Orchestra and CASH Music, a
nonprofit organization that builds open source digital tools for musicians and labels.
Zoë has composed music for ballet, theater, film and radio and lends her music regularly to film, tv, dance productions and commercials.
In 2014, she began composing for television, collaborating with Jeff Russo on the score for the A&E drama "The Returned".

As a cellist and arranger, Zoë has worked with a wide range of artists, including Imogen Heap, Mark Isham, Curt Smith, Amanda Palmer,
Rasputina, DJ Shadow, Pomplamoose and Paolo Nutini. From 2002 to 2006 she was a member of the cello-rock trio Rasputina. Zoë is a
recipient of a 2009 performing arts grant from the Creative Capital foundation.

“Rhythm Future Quartet breaks new ground for Gypsy jazz”
~
The Boston Globe

“These young men are incredible!!! Don’t miss them…such dedication and love of music to witness!”
~
Tommy Emmauel
The acoustic jazz ensemble, Rhythm Future Quartet, has a straightforward
agenda: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical
universe.

The virtuosic foursome, named for a Django Reinhardt tune, offers up a newly minted
sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. Led by
violinist Jason Anick and guitarist Olli Soikkeli, the quartet performs dynamic and
lyrical arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw
upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. With Max O’Rourke on
second guitar and Greg Loughman on bass, Rhythm Future is dedicated to expanding
the boundaries of a vital musical genre.
Where the band’s self-titled debut album re-visited classic jazz and Gypsy jazz favorites, Travels, the quartet’s current release,
concentrates on group originals that make captivating use of musical sources from outside the conventional Gypsy jazz terrain. Travels
reflects both the accumulated knowledge garnered from the groups world wide touring as well as the international influences that inspired
new rhythmic and harmonic possibilities within their compositions and arrangements.

Jason Anick, an award-winning composer and one of the youngest professors at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, has
shared the stage with an array of artists including Grammy award winning guitarist John Jorgenson, Stevie Wonder, The Jim Kweskin Jug
Band, and Tommy Emmanuel. Olli Soikkeli (coined “the Finnish boy wonder”) recently made the move from Scandinavia to New York
City, where he quickly became a top call guitarist in the bustling Brooklyn jazz scene. He has performed alongside rising star Cyrille
Aimee, world-renowned Gypsy guitarist Stochelo Rosenberg, Bucky Pizzarelli and many others.

Max O’Rourke was the winner of the 2015 Saga Award from DjangoFest Northwest, and at 19 has already toured/recorded with many of
the top American Gypsy Jazz musicians, including John Jorgenson and Gonzalo Bergara. Greg Loughman is a top call bassist in Boston and
has been heard with such luminaries as Sheila Jordan, Curtis Fuller and George Garzone.

Their performances astounding, diversity unparalleled, these three revered musicians are not actually natives of the “Golden State.”

The
California Guitar Trio (CGT) is Bert Lams from Belgium, Hideyo Moriya from Japan, and Paul Richards from Utah.
Together,
their technical wizardry is breathtaking, as is the wide range of instrumental music the group renders…from unique
originals to dazzling, cleverly-arranged interpretations of jazz, classical music, and even surf rock.

Since their inception in 1991, the Trio has released 14 CDs: nine studio albums (including a Christmas record), three live albums
(including An Opening Act from their 1995 world tour with King Crimson), and two compilations. On screen, CGT can be seen in the
documentary
Following the Music: On The Road w/California Guitar Trio (©2004 Stone Chapel Films), and the new, Hi-Def multi-
camera shoot of an intimate house concert in 2009.  In October 2010, the California Guitar Trio released Andromeda, a new, all-
original album, nearly three years in the making. It was named
Best Instrumental Album that year, by the Indie Acoustic Project.

CGT’s recent studio and stage collaborations with bassist Tony Levin and guitarist Fareed Haque, drummer Paul Mastelotto, and the
Montreal Guitar Trio (2011 live release), have renewed demand for their North American touring, and have broadened the scope of
the band’s repertoire and educational outreach.
