The muggy midsummer air characteristic of Cincinnati, along with a seemingly apocalyptic amount of thunderstorms, are not cramping anyone’s style at Ambient Studios. Artists have been taking refuge from the heat and the rain to record some decidedly cool music, including the star of last month’s post, Brazilian double-threat Lakinni. The musician and model has formed a new musical act called Stigma de Lis and is currently collaborating with Blues great Noah Wotherspoon on a track titled ‘Don’t Make Me Cry.’ The uber-talented Wotherspoon won first place in last year’s Cincinnati Blues Challenge and was a finalist in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. You can, and should, check him out here. And while I’m being bossy, make sure to stay tuned to hear what Lakinni, Stigma de Lis and Noah have cooked up!
Summer is happening at Ambient Studios! Brazilian songstress and model Lakinni was in the studio this month, recording a hot EP. You can catch this blues singer putting on a “model” performance (couldn’t resist) at The Blue Wisp and The Greenwich, or right here.
Also in the studio was the band Arcadia Backfire, bringing it this month to complete their EP with a little help from Clint Lowery. The Sevendust guitarist is lending his co-writing skills to some of the material, with highly anticipated results! Check out Arcadia Backfire here.
