Earlier this year, Jherek Bischoff launched the ''Composed'' project at New York's Ecstatic Music Festival. Many of the guests who feature on the album made appearances at the show, including David Byrne. We've just released a rather wonderful video of Byrne singing 'Eyes' with Jherek and the Wordless Music Orchestra which you can see above (or Vimeo).
Jherek, aided by a handpicked string quartet, has been confirmed as support for Amanda Palmer on various shows in Europe and the USA. He's also performing at the shows as part of Amanda's Grand Theft Orchestra. All the dates are listed below.
Jherek will also give a separate SECRET headline show with the quartet in London this coming Tuesday (June 19). It will be an early show, with Jherek onstage around 7pm. We can't give you any more info about the show until Tuesday, when it will be made public, but keep your eyes on Jherek's Twitter for more details.
Jherek will play music from his brand new album Composed at the shows.
