The Courtship Proper strives to unite clean, crisp and deep production with the nuance, diversity and soul of live instrumentation. Inspired from innovative live performances like Thievery Corporation and Bonobo, TCP presents the power expected of live bands in 2013.
The Courtship Proper is Seamus Hannan on production, Sophia Herscu on vocals, Chris Kolodey on keys and bass, Stephan Gordon on guitar and synths, and Ben Felson on drums. Hannan’s work in recording studios promotes strong attention to detail and sound design, while instrumentalists Kolodey, Gordon and Felson bring touches of their jazz and world music studies into the driving beat. Herscu’s vocals ride on top, bringing the listener on a musical journey. By joining rhythm, poems, and bass, the principles of Proper Courtship prevail: Tact, Cadence, Pace.
