Marika Hughes & Bottom Heavy
FEATURING:
Marika Hughes, cello/voice
Charlie Burnham, violin
Kyle Sanna, guitar
Fred Cash, bass
Tony Mason, drums

Bottom Heavy instantly establishes itself as a strong new sound; flowing freely between funky instrumentals, dreamy lullaby, free improv, and killer songs. Marika fronts the band with such ease and so naturally it makes one wonder why cellos havenít always fronted bands. Her stylings are reminiscent of her classical upbringing yet defy expectation as she moves us with her supple vocals through jazz, funk, soul, rock, and back again. After years as a side girl, Marika invited some of her favorite NYC based musicians to join her new band and sound. The great band is Kyle Sanna gtr, Charlie Burnham vln, Fred Cash bass & Tony Mason drums. The band can tip its hat to some of our greatest artists as influences; Gil-Scot Heron, Roberta Flack, Don Pullen, Charles Mingus and Cassandra Wilson, to name only a few. As you are charmed by her cello, her voice, and her band, you will be charmed by Marika herself: fiercely authentic, her audience an old friend invited along for the fabulous ride.
