About Arc Iris
Arc Iris is the orchestral pop project of Jocie Adams, a former core member of The Low Anthem. The singer, multi-instrumentalist, classical composer and former NASA technician formed the collective to present her ambitious new songs. The band includes Zach Tenorio-Miller (keys), Mike Irwin (trumpet), Ray Belli (drums), Max Johnson (bass) and Nora Fox (voice, flute), with additional players including Robin Ryczek (cello) and Charlie Rose (pedal steel) frequently joining to expand the sound further.
Bob Boilen of NPR All Songs Considered calls the music "somewhat cabaret, somewhat orchestral folk, a bit of show tune and jazz band," while The Deli Magazine writes, "the fivepiece group had everything you could want in a live performance--intense energy, appreciation for performing and incredible talent…[they are] something akin to a soul/folk/jazz amalgamation."
Arc Iris has recently played shows with Calexico, Menomena, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Justin Townes Earle, and Diego Garcia. The debut album will be released on 1 April by Anti- in North America and Bella Union in the rest of the world.
