Dawn Richard & Spencer Zahn

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

Dawn Richard and Spencer Zahn share a common collaborative ethos, a genuine sense of musical curiosity, and a cosmopolitan eagerness to escape the conventions of genre. That shared vision first brought them together on 2022's Pigments - icy and warm, stripped-down and grand, familiar and otherworldly - and now it has reunited them for Quiet in a World Full of Noise.

By turns intimate, soul-baring, spectral, and startling, Quiet in a World Full of Noise blends atmospheric and orchestral soundscapes with mellifluous soul, jazz, and journalistic vocalizing - driving it all home with stark, confessional lyricism.

“Richard sings impressionistic songs of love (and self-love), Zahn's radiant chamber music works like a prism, splitting her voice into beams of pure color.” - Pitchfork
