SONGS FROM A RANDOM HOUSE
Songs from a Random House is surely New York's leading electric-ukulele/viola/upright bass/percussion/and voice combo. Described as "inventive" (The New Yorker) and "humorously surreal" (New York Times Magazine), Songs from a Random House matches its offbeat instrumentation with imaginative song craft and an exciting live show. Singer/composer Steven Swartz's voice floats over a multi-layered fabric of strings, anchored by fierce grooves from SoFARH's rhythm section. The lyrics are filled with peripheral visions, puns, late-night thoughts, and unexpected insights.
