Is More is the brainchild of danish musician Mikkel
Hess. HIM makes
music for films, theater and multimedia (including recent collaborations
with the Royal Theater in Copenhagen), has a current radio and
MTV hit in Europe, and plays tennis. With his virtuosic ability
to play multiple instruments and love of jazz and experimental
electronica, Hess creates a sound palette that is all at once
original, hypnotic and timeless.
The Hess Is More live band also features Mikkel’s brother
Nikolaj Hess and Jens Bjørnkjær. In a most unique
set up, the trio mixes electronic and acoustic elements into something
best described as a live remix - reinventing, yet maintaining,
the sound from the albums.
In Spanish began in Miami, Florida when Michelle Perez
and Jules Monterrey found each other through mutual friends and
started making music together. They both decided to step out of
their musical comfort zones and are continually discovering a
sound that they are calling avant-pop. SIS fuses elements of 50’s
pop, exotic lounge, experimental electronic and free jazz that
guarantees a mysterious and engaging live experience.
