September 1, 2010

She is perhaps best known as the vocalist for Moby on Wait for Me and his most recent tours, but Kelli Scarr is an accomplished artist in her own right. In the afternoon following the release party for her debut album Piece, Kelli performed a brief set at the fifth installment of the Backyard Brunch series. The band adapted well to the acoustic setting, as Kelli remained seated with an acoustic guitar and bassist Andrew Southern moved to second guitar. The format was also quite an excellent showcase for multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Lam, whose mandolin work was superb, and for Jo Schornikow’s sweet harmonies and keyboards. Kelli’s set was relaxed and fit well within the informal atmosphere, and her humor was particularly required for the persistent fly-over airplanes (slightly audible on the recording). Kelli’s next NYC show will be at Joe’s Pub on Thursday October 7.

This set was recorded with four microphones placed strategically around the band. Other than the airplanes, the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
