Cape Francis





Cape Francis, Hannah Sumner and Bonomo play The Revolution, #Vol. 29 on 07.28

National Sawdust’s monthly premiere of emerging local artists called The Revolution is set for its 29th iteration on Saturday, July 28 with a variety of new bands. The three local acts juxtapose each other in genre and songwriting, yet their sounds are engaging in their own distinctive way. Bonomo’s laid-back, silky jazz compositions are wonderfully playful and find grooves that slither around without becoming monotonous, and his somewhat subtle music contrasts his two contemporaries. Cape Francis brings subdued indie folk that transforms murmuring guitars into a roar of organic energy, whereas Hannah Sumner’s ethereal walls of synth pop wrestle with her restrained yet impassioned voice in a combination of natural and synthetic energies. These artists offer wildly different appeals and styles, doubling down on The Revolution’s commitment to diversity in sonic palettes. The show begins at 10 p.m. and you can listen to The Deli’s playlist featuring these acts below. -Tucker Pennington





Cape Francis snags the cover of Spotify's Fresh Finds + Tops Deli Emerging Artists Chart

If an artist suddenly climbs our "NYC New Bands With Buzz" charts (look around on this page, you'll find it), there's always a reason. It happened this month to Brooklyn based dreamy songwriter Cape Francis, whose record release show we recently previewed in this very blog. In this circumstance, what pushed the project of Kevin Olken Henthorn to the top of that list is the fact that he made the cover of Spotify's popular weekly playlist Fresh Finds (the playlist gets erased and updated weekly, so you won't find Cape Francis in this week's list of tracks). Congrats Kevin! 

Cape Francis is scheduled to perform tonight in the East Village at Berlin and on November 10 at Bushwick's C'Mon Everybody.





Alt folk artist Cape Francis celebrates debut release at Mercury on 09.22

Cape Francis is the solo-project of Kevin Olken Henthorn and features music that neatly fits into a self-made nexus of indie folk/rock/pop and “post” iterations of each. Cape Francis is able to oscillate between slow, melancholic elegies for what is lost (“Iditarod”) and heart-felt indie anthems (“5 in the Morning”). Regardless of presentation, Cape Francis skillfully evokes Northeastern wistful angst. His debut album “Falling into Pieces” is out September 22nd, and NYC’s Mercury Lounge will be hosting the release show on September 29th. - Amanda Ogea
