ABOUT

“Slick rock ’n’ soul with equal parts groove and intellect, ambition and ability” -Jonathan Zwickel , City Arts

Formed in 2014 by brothers Andy and Don Ayers, Black Giraffe hit the Seattle music scene with its old school vocals, percussive synth sounds, and driving polyrhythmic drums; Soul, R&B, rock, and any rhythm that moves people mixed with a grimy pop palette. After the introduction of a new line-up with Lauren Wells on violin, vocals and keyboard, and Ben Rud on drums, the band released its sophomore album, Talk Cheap in 2017. The album, with its catchy dance tunes inspired by pop chimera’s of the past like David Bowie and Prince, propelled the band further into the public eye.

”Black Giraffe deliver a sound you never thought you needed: The Pixies covering Of Montreal songs, with a blue-eyed soul singer fronting the works. The unapologetically poppy songs twist just enough to keep them interesting, and singer/guitarist Andy Ayers sports chops to burn.” — Tony Kay, City Arts
