Cellist and songwriter Vaudrey thinks fragility is beauty, beauty is an accident, and an accident is dub delay soaked Bach shimmering on a bed of grinding analog synthesizer. Somewhere in the realm of Arthur Russell, James Blake, and the folk songs of old, Vaudrey lives in a world where machines and hand crafted wooden masterpieces are one. Intangibly placed, this post-chestral, bedroom dub folk pop, is the revival of real musicianship, studied then unthought.
No stranger to the big stage, now residing in Brooklyn, New York, Vaudrey is the project of Australian born cellist and song writer, Rich Vaudrey. With a Doctorate in the performance of classical and improvisational cello whilst acting as Teaching Assistant to the Emerson String Quartet, Rich regularly plays in both classical, new music and fusion jazz groups throughout New York City, having performed at venues including Carnegie hall, 92Y Tribecca, the Stone, Alice Tully Hall and the Harvey Theatre, BAM.
In anticipation of his debut release in 2014 Vaudrey presents showcases in New York City, Melbourne and Sydney of original works and transcriptions from the late Arthur Russell.
