Jake_Bellissimo_Maud_ScheltingaThursday 22nd June 2017, Music with Jake Bellissimo, Maud Scheltinga & more to be announced. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Music from 8:30pm.

Jake Bellissimo: “I’m a queer songwriter from Rochester, NY (USA) and I co-run the record label Drunk With Love Records with Jack Barham, where I put out the music of myself and my friends.”

Drunk With Love Records was founded in 2014 as a response to the missing link between professionalism and intimacy. Based somewhere in between upstate New York and Berlin (and named after the Bruz Fletcher song “Drunk With Love”), it currently represents a family of songwriters, composers, and artists. Separating the art from the artist is not what we do—by combining music with our lives we can give the audience context on a very personal level. Formats (albums, singles, etc.) are nearly irrelevant, honesty is key. Drunk With Love Records documents art in its immediate form, as a reflection of the immediacy in our lives.

The latest solo release from Jake Bellissimo without the gay angel monicker plays with making the intimate spacious and vice versa. This time without a large ensemble behind him, the music shifts between full band, orchestral arrangements, and acoustic moments. Taking inspiration from traveling and states of flux, Piece of Ivy is a transition point, a diary for the months following an exhale.
