The Sounds of Deep Ellum serves as a time capsule of the current era, featuring a diverse group of musicians who add meaning to the cultural fabric of the neighborhood. The project’s goal is to capture the richness and diversity of the Dallas’ music scene, and highlight the city’s best performers.
For decades, the Deep Ellum neighborhood has commanded the attention of international musicians with homegrown superstars like Tripping Daisy, Old 97s, Toadies, Charley Crockett, and Erykah Badu all playing a central role in keeping the culture alive. The preservation of Deep Ellum is essential to the soul of Dallas. This album serves as proof of the importance of this iconic neighborhood – a neighborhood celebrating its 150th anniversary!
PNC Patio Sessions Side A features a lineup of all-female artists:
Lorelei K is a band from Dallas, Texas, known for composing and performing avant-garde, dreamy pop with arresting vocals. The atmospheric sound of the group is both reminiscent of European electronic music from the 80s and 90s, and is evocative of the growing future of this new genre. Singer Dahlia Knowles powerful vocal performances are juxtaposed against a dark, synthetic sound with arrangements and instrumentation that give each song a floating, almost heavenly feel. “We fall somewhere in the avant-garde, post-punk, dream pop world with dreamy vocals and atmospheric high production songs. My music helps me channel all of my feelings and emotions and it’s a feeling that can’t be described in any other way”
Skinny Cooks is a bowl of funk jazz gumbo seasoned with a mystical secret spice. What is that you don’t get with the Skinny Cooks? Blame it on their blend of soul, fusion, alternative jazz and R&B. Blame it on their unwillingness not to be dangerous, daring and all out unapologetic masterful creators. The music is not music. It’s a journey.
