Blending together elements of R&B, funk, and ‘80s pop, Blood Orange is the most recent project of British producer and singer Dev Hynes. With a distinctive sound that ranges from upbeat funk and electronica to languid jazz, paired with spoken-word poetry and vocal sampling, he earned the record top-20 spots on both Noisey and Pitchfork‘s Best Albums of 2016. This evening he is joined by vocalist and cellist Kelsey Lu whose “sublime” (Guardian) debut album, Blood, fuses disco, R&B, indie, and pop to showcase her classical training and experimental spirit.

“Blood Orange is the aural incarnation of a socially engaged, emotionally intelligent, multicultural, gender-fluid zeitgeist that’s now reaching the shores of mainstream pop.”
– New York Times
“Blood is meditative, surreal and deeply imaginative.”
– Guardian
