Hailed as “One of New York’s finest interdisciplinary acts” (American Composers Forum), ShoutHouse is a collective of musicians based in New York. Founded by composer and pianist Will Healy in 2014, ShoutHouse brings together complex grooves, poetic hip-hop, high-octane vocals, and instrumental solos in a way that is “a whole new form of expression” (The Culture Trip). With a core roster of a dozen musicians, ShoutHouse has formed a large community of artists that come together to present cutting-edge concert experiences that are redefining the boundaries of genre.
Recent season highlights include performances on The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, National Sawdust’s Resonator Festival, The Harlem Arts Festival, Satellite Collective’s Echo & Narcissus at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Cooper Hewitt Museum’s summer concert series, and on 44 Charlton at The Greene Space. ShoutHouse often appears at New York’s legendary clubs like The Bitter End, The Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall, and more. ShoutHouse’s first EP was featured on radio programs around the world, including WNYC’s “New Sounds” with John Schaefer, WBAI’s “Making Music” with Jordan Maclean, and their first full-length album comes out on New Amsterdam Records in June 2019. Since its inception, ShoutHouse has received support from The Juilliard School’s entrepreneurship program, the Brooklyn Arts Fund, Jerome Fund for New Music, the Queens Arts Council, The Sparkplug Foundation, and others.
In the spring of 2012, 22-year-old Dan Kleederman took his sister up on an unconventional birthday gift – a phone call with a psychic.Though skeptical at first, his mind opened a bit when the conversation turned towards his grandmother. Long understood as the clearest source of his musical gifts, she was was tragically killed in a car accident before he was born. According to the healer, however, she was trying to communicate with him now, encouraging him to follow his passion and inclination towards a life in music.Grand Kid is Kleederman’s ode to the old and the young – the magic of intuition and wisdom, and the unadorned vulnerability of youth that never seems to leave. It’s an eclectic, soulful, alternative rock that manages to find a home as much in Radiohead as it does in Ry Cooder. Through the strength of his voice and the striking voice of his guitar, no matter how far out – or far in – the music goes, it always carries with it an authentic beauty and arresting intimacy.Often supported by a high-flying trio, Grand Kid also performs solo accompanied by vintage drum machines, organs, and brass by way of cassette tapes. He will be releasing a live EP/video called “We’ll Be” early in 2019 and will be celebrating the release with a trio show at Rockwood Musical Hall Stage 1 on March 7th at 7 pm. Grand Kid plans on dropping a full studio album in the fall of 2019.
Rising lyricist Akinyemi [ah-kin-yeh-me] has grabbed the attention of audiences with his unapologetically honest take on the struggles and beauty of the human condition, mixed with the drive to create and experience something new.
The Nigerian 23 year old, who hails from Queens, has a name that means “fated to be a warrior” in Yoruba. Akinyemi embodies that inner warrior in his music. Although his sound mirrors hip-hop legends such as A Tribe Called Quest as well as newer artists like Mick Jenkins and Anderson Paak, he creates original and experimental melodies that include sounds and samples considered foreign in hip-hop.
Akinyemi recently opened for known acts Berhana, Sylvan LaCue, Heems, G4SHI, Chester Watson, Mal Devisa, and many others. His debut EP, summers, has received global recognition; it’s even in rotation at Adidas flagship stores worldwide. Akinyemi has been featured in The Village Voice, Mass Appeal, and Huffington Post’s “BARS” (which amassed over a million views via Facebook), and many others. Akinyemi also has also dabbled in modeling, including for Spike Lee’s clothing line, Defend Brooklyn, and for Steve Harvey, among others.
