Shayfer James
Playing at: Rockwood Music Hall (196 Allen St., L.E.S.)
Info: Tickets (FREE) | Directions

Pianist and songwriter Shayfer James brings a cinematic approach to music making on his latest self-produced album The Owl & The Elephant. Take the haunting song “Bayonnettes,” which is both lyrically and stylistically like something out of a Tim Burton film. The song's rich orchestration swells over James’ melodic bellows and conjures up a dark and sinful scene underscored by mischievous charm. Download the song or check out James' nod to old timey film production in the video for the song "When Heaven Closes" below.
