Above: Bashful Creature 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 penultimate act was Bashful Creature, with Alex Hamberger (Music MFA 16) on guitar and Nailah Middleton (Music 16) on harp and vocals. They were joined by Bobby Grigas (Music 14) on percussion for the night’s performance. Bashful Creature showcased their combination of jazz, synth pop and folk-inspired sounds in three lyrical songs.
