CROSS-POLLINATION CCXXXII - TUES APR 7TH - 7:30-10 PM
JEFF SCHRAM
CAR ON THE MOON

In the spring of 2009 NYC singer/songwriter Jeff Schram will release the first set in a series of singles titled 'Season Of The White Crow.'

The title 'Season of the White Crow' is inspired by a quote from WIlliam James. "If you wish to upset the law that all crows are black... it is enough to prove one crow to be white."

It's about moving from a dark place into a place of light; about reversing your assumptions about what life is, and can be. It's about believing that something good can come from something bad. It's about learning that you aren't bound by your past.

This new way of thinking has influenced the music on White Crow and has inspired Jeff's transition from a solo acoustic performer into an electrified exploration into his indie blues rock roots.

Elias Orling has been a musician for over ten years. He is self taught on the bass, guitar, banjo, keys, ukulele, voice and drums. His musical talent has landed him in several bands, with which he has performed at many venues in New York, Boston, and London. Though primarily a bassist, Orling also has formal training as a visual artist—approaching his musical collage and song writing with strong attention to texture as well as rhythm and atmosphere. His compositions have been used in performances by Maria Colaco Dance Co. and Wobble Dance Co. Currently he is working with his new band, Car On The Moon to create a rhythm driven, blues inspired experience with hints of soul and traditional songs. He lives, writes, and records in Brooklyn, NY with his cat Mel.
