Above: Ben & Kat performs at CalArts Soundstream in April.
On April 18, 10 musical acts formed by the graduating class of The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts showcased their talents at the annual CalArts Soundstream concert. The event, held at legendary music venue The Troubadour in West Hollywood, Calif., presented forward-thinking and genre-defying music to industry executives and to the Los Angeles public.
The duo Ben & Kat—Ben Finley (Music MFA 16) on bass and Kathryn Shuman (Music MFA 16) on vocals—entertained the crowd with two songs featuring their signature haunting electro-acoustic folk music.
