Versatile flutist, composer and indie rocker Leah Paul has settled in Silver Lake and brought Downtown New York's burgeoning indie-classical scene to her new neighborhood. Hosted by L.A.'s newest concert series for hipsters, Classical Revolution: LA, the Paul Quartet will play music for clarinet, viola, bassoon and flutes from the new album Bike Lane. Called "intricate yet highly accessible chamber works" by Time Out and "kaleidoscopic" and "fascinating" by the Downtown Music Gallery, this chamber music channels pop structure with an improvisational spirit.
Leah became a fixture in the downtown New York music scene, playing regularly with Blarvuster, Anthony Braxton, as well as guesting with TV on the Radio, the Dirty Projectors, and Milagres. Her pop band, The Bridesmaids has been written about in Time Out NY, The Big Takeover, and featured in Venuszine. Since moving to Los Angeles in July 2011, Leah has immersed herself in LA’s new music scene, performing with Tim Young, Corey Fogel, as well as composing music for film and television.
Classical Revolution: Los Angeles brings fun and engaging chamber music shows to relaxed, accessible venues throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Called an "addictive new series" by Mark Swed of the L.A. Times, concerts are performed at coffee shops, bars, clubs and even outdoors! Classical Revolution was founded in 2006 at the Revolution Cafe in San Francisco. The Classical Revolution model has spread around the world, with nearly 30 active chapters in cities around the US, Canada and Europe.
