Dorian Wood
"Echo Round My Heart"
Playing at: Le Poisson Rouge

Get: Tickets | Directions

Armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon, artist and musician Dorian Wood makes mercurial pop that demands and deserves attention. His most recent EP, Black Pig Suite, is an emotional opus combining the melodrama of Queen with art rock ferocity and a touch of sophisticated, operatic gloss. Opener "Echo Round My Heart" uses folk as a jumping off point into grand musicality, with Wood leading the charge on piano and singing with a resolute earnestness.

NOTE: This song contains explicit lyrics.
