Start Making Sense: Talking Heads Tribute
Start Making Sense: Talking Heads Tribute
If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 8-piece Talking Heads cover have come from psychedelia-funk, NYC underground spoof bands, worldbeat jam, head-banging punk and from onstage with Frank Zappa's band members to bring to stage a "once in a lifetime" experience. A rockin', funkin', danceable celebration of the new-wave punk we loved from the 80's with frontman Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne - suit too big and all.
Ruby Dear
After spending her youth developing her craft as a singer/multi instrumentalist touring with the likes of Jon Anderson (Yes), Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), Napoleon Murphy Brock (Frank Zappa), and Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Jenny Founds joined Start Making Sense: A Tribute to Talking Heads and discovered the perfect musicians to join forces with, the brother duo of Jon & Jesse Braun (of Start Making Sense, Insidious Rays, & Great White Caps). After playing together for years on the road paying tribute to some incredible music, these seasoned musicians have crafted original material that has been described as a “power trio that attacks the senses with machine gun blasts of punk and garage rock, ample amounts of distortion, and soaring, powerful lead vocals”.
