David Longstreth is a Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer, and composer, and is playing a series of Fall solo dates across the US to road-test new material for the next Dirty Projectors album and some other projects.

Longstreth founded the seminal indie band Dirty Projectors in 2002, earning widespread acclaim with the albums Bitte Orca and Swing Lo Magellan. In 2020, Dirty Projectors released the new 5EPs collection, and most recently in 2023, they reissued Mount Wittenberg Orca, their 2010 short album collaboration with Bjork.

In recent years, Longstreth has been writing chamber music and collaborating with other artists, including producing songs for Solange's A Seat At The Table and co-writing Rihanna's #1 international hit single “FourFiveSeconds” with Paul McCartney and Kanye West, among others.


Sen Morimoto

Sen Morimoto is a Japanese American singer / multi-instrumentalist and producer based in Chicago. His mix of jazz and hip-hop production, spoken-word rap and pop sensibilities form a super-genre of modern songwriting and experimental grooves.

Sen has spent years collaborating with all scenes in Chicago from rap (Pivot Gang), Pop (KAINA), Jazz (Resavoir), Indie (Lala Lala), etc. He's a conduit to all the different scenes and it goes beyond making music. He's a label head (Sooper Records), an Activist (was on the front page of the Chicago Tribune for it in 2020) and is also a part of the poetry and writing scene.

His 2018 debut LP Cannonball! Was co-released by media giant 88Rising and the Chicago indie label that Sen co-owns, Sooper Records. He subsequently released his self-titled 2020 follow up on Sooper Records. Both albums garnered critical acclaim in the USA, Europe, and Japan, and led Sen out onto the road including several tours of the USA, three tours of Japan, and appearances at Festivals including the Boiler Room Jazz Festival (UK), Summersonic (Tokyo), Boro Festa (Kyoto), Head In The Clouds (USA), Treefort Festival (USA) and PDX Jazz Festival (USA).
