After having studied classical singing for several years, Josiah Wise, who is better known as Serpentwithfeet, was killing time in Paris and London before he ended up in New York City. It was here that his fusion of gospel and classical-modulating electronic expression gradually took shape. Not until after quite a long time, where Wise used New York’s homosexual underground scene as a platform for experimenting – both musically and visually – while each week he was sharing new songs on Soundcould in the hope that someone would notice them one day, did Wise find his style: A musical statement alternating between quiet intimacy and grandiose outbursts of feeling and a cross between gospel and R&B that resulted in the critically acclaimed debut EP, ‘Blisters’.
Serpentwithfeet will perform on Saturday, 11. August 2018.
