If you are new to the sounds of Ishi, you can get a taste below (just hit play and keep reading). The band is best known for their high energy electronic music with influences of Soul, Funk & Folk to Electro, Techno & House. Since their start a couple of years ago, the group has built a loyal following by creating positive atmospheres that encourage everybody to just be themselves and let loose.
In 2010, Ishi released their debut record “Through The Trees” and received awards for “Best New Act” & “Best Electronic/Dance Act” from the Dallas Observer the same year. In 2011, they again took the top spot for “Best Electronic/Dance Act.”
The band is currently raising money for their second album and dedicated half of the funds raised to go towards Booker T. Washington High School.
The school is Dallas Independent School District's arts magnet school and has over the years graduated many accomplished performers and artists. Prominent examples include Norah Jones, Erykah Badu and many others.
The private acoustic show can be attended by supporters of their campaign. For $15 or more, you can attend the show and meet the band up close. The group is also offering t-shirts, mentions in the liner notes, signed posters, and more for contributions towards their second album. No matter what amount you donate, you will get the digital downloads of their first album, as well as remixes of their popular songs.
