Sing About It (Naytronix Remix)

Moira Smiley

In cart Not available Out of stock

‘Sing About It’ sings against the violence of white supremacy and the echo chambers we live in. A side-step from the a cappella anthem on Moira Smiley’s February 19th release In Our Voices, this Naytronix remix ventures into the land of vocal-driven experimental beats and fierce, meditative repetition. In this week where we feel the senseless death of George Floyd (and many other Black lives continuing to be cut down by our systems of oppression), the nucleus of this electro-pop remix is the ever-pulsing question: “am I responsible / are you responsible / what are we responsible for?”.

“Naytronix is the solo musical project of Nate Brenner, an American multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer who is also a member of the band Tune-Yards.”

In Our Voices

Moira Smiley

In cart Not available Out of stock

Five exquisitely diverse voices and thunderous body percussion bring raw urgency to songs of social justice and human connection.

Touring heavily with Tune-Yards, Solas and Jayme Stone’s Lomax / Folklife projects bore Unzip The Horizon - Moira’s 2018 solo album of lonesome, nomadic songs. An instinctual collaborator, she was ready to return to harmony singing and the joy of powerful voices in 2020 with VOCO. In Our Voices is the result of that return. Featuring: Moira Smiley, Dawn Pemberton, Karla Mundy, Gregory Fletcher, Jake Asaro with special guests Sam Amidon, Caleb Bronze, and Seamus Egan.

Saturdays Nov 13 + 20 + 27 @ 12:30-1:30pm east coast US $120 for 3-class series

I’ve learned some essential new things about singing in the last few months and I really want to share these insights with you! This “Wake Up The Voice” masterclass happens across three November Saturdays, and the 12:30-1:30pm Eastern timing allows my UK & EU as well West Coast singing friends to jump in. It will be on Zoom, but what a zoom room full of singing and movement it will be! I will guide us through these vocal insights via games, warmups, exercises, and PLAY. You will also choose 1 or 2 songs to practice across the 2 week span of the class on your own. You’ll check in with me on them via a recording or 2 in a Google Drive folder. You also have the opportunity to work one-on-one with me in the second half of each class if you like.

A welcome email and Zoom links will be sent the week before class starts!

$20.00

Painted and protected laser-engraved wooden medallions, in terra cotta color. I started calling these “medallions” because they can be whatever you want them to be… they are the perfect size to become ornaments… magnets… a set of coasters… hanging decorations. Maybe hang them as ornaments today and use them as coasters tomorrow. Make them your own! Every set comes with a DIY kit of 3 wooden medallions + a package of thread + three attachable magnet discs AND a handwritten love note from Moira.
