09-04-2019 12:00:00 09-04-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Foreign Air Honors | 8:00 pm This event is all ages Jesse Clasen and Jacob Michael are ready to get inside of your minds. The duo call themselves Foreign Air and are a different breed of cat from all the other acts that are out there. The two currently split their time between New York (Clasen) and Washington DC (Michael) –initially establishing their friendship while playing in different bands. "One night, I watched Jesseper form and I was really intrigued by his voice and some of the stuff he was doing. We kept in touch and got to know each other over the years. We became really good friends." Jesse followed up by saying, "With Jacob, we played just one show and it went really well. We kept in contact with each other. Over the years, it just developed into a friendship. We shared music onlinethrough Dropbox. Whenever I was in D.C. playing with different bands, he would come and hang out. Whenever he was around my area we would go to shows together. Sleep on each other's couches. This project just kind of happened. I don't think it was planned at all." Coming together as Foreign Air has been a life-changing experience for the duo. Jacob notes, "For me personally, putting out the first song 'Free Animal' on SoundCloud has changed my life in a really big way. Prior to that, I came from more of a live music background. Playing different live music instruments. We are into rock music and hip hop. A lot of different genres that you wouldn't think go together. Jesse adds, "This project has been a lot about using new tools and really diving into it. We are taking that whole mindset of songwriting from more of the '90s hip hop that we grew up listening to as '80s babies. Instead of finding records to sample, we are writing songs like we have always done with real drums, guitars and bass. Then we try to figure out how to chop it up and put them across pads and pitch them differently and see how a song can completely change. This is a new world for both of us." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348019 Baby's All Right Baby's All Right
