Poésis: (poy-ae-sis) self-creation; the creative manifestation of spirit; often defined as the force that mysteriously holds quantum particles together. From the bosom of the Colorado mountains, reigns a musical collective of four young, but surprisingly seasoned, musicians, who have created the unique 'jazz meets indie rock' sound that they call: Poésis. Each musician brings a unique musical history to the table. Xanthe, on lead vocals, developed her sound by way of constant shows with national acts, honing her thick, 'Ella Fitzgerald meets Fiona Apple twang,' leading jazz bands around the states. Xanthe is currently one of three nominees for 'Best Regional Singer/Songwriter' by the esteemed Pikes Peak Art Council. Jonathan Gabriel, vocalist, co-writer, and guitarist, was forged in the relentless LA fires of rock and roll, graduating at the top of his class at Musician's Institute in Hollywood. His experience in the local scene is extensive, and he is no stranger to creating the type of atmospheric music necessary for soundtracks, or laying down a raw, unfiltered, impassioned, melodic lead. David Cannava, a well-seasoned drummer, has grown technically beyond his age, spanning the rhythmic gaps between hard rock and jazz. His poly-rhythms glues the band together. Melissa Jones, a young soulful acoustic bassist, knows how to walk with the best of them, and put down some serious funk. Together, the four manifest a mighty force of spirit, the types of deafening sounds one would expect in a canyon thunderstorm, juxtaposed with soft, melodic interplay, improvisation, and raw, spiritual, organic warmth.
