Aradia Brings Her Sci-Fi Style to Barboza in Seattle Tonight
Seattle-based singer/songwriter Aradia (www.aradiamusic.com) brings her fresh and otherworldly but supremely infectious hybrid "roktronica" vibe to Barboza (925 E. Pike St. Seattle, WA 98122) tonight, July 19 in support of her new EP titled, Possibilities: Light.
The show begins at 7 p.m. and tickets may be purchased in advance for $10 at http://thebarboza.com/event/aradia/.
Aradia's new EP Possibilities: Light includes six compelling tunes (plus a dance remix of the super-poppy '80s throwback "Today") that are the optimistic opposite of the dark and pensive tunes on her 2012 EP Possibilities: Dark. Both are perfect showcases for a unique sound that blends rock, pop, trip-hop and electronica that has been likened to an otherworldly mix of Donna Summer, Trent Reznor, David Bowie and George Harrison.
Possibilities: Light emerged from essentially the same period of composing but has a decidedly more fun-filled spirit about it - a reflection of the life she has now brimming with creativity, a strong social support system and great hope.
Long before tapping into her music talents, Aradia was a proud, self-confessed "biggest nerd ever." Growing up in and around New York City, she was a "mathlete." She joined Young Astronauts. Her personal reading list included Charles Dickens, Ray Bradbury and Greek and Roman mythology. She was a classically trained pianist who enrolled in the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College.
Perfectly in line with all that, she's a hard core, "live long and prosper" Trekkie, gobbling up Captains Kirk (original series) and Picard (The Next Generation) and the recent Star Trek movies.
The Sci-Fi fashionista has performed (with a new band featuring a keyboardist who runs samples) at such popular venues as Nectar Lounge, The Rendezvous and an art gallery club called Sole Repair .
