Event Details:

why? grew up in Cincinnati playing kickball in the cul de sac and watching 8-bit Nintendo in his big brother’s attic bedroom. The minor key melodies of religious music and the tight belt, tight-laced shoes of his soft-spoken middle childhood in part provide the impetus for why?’s candy-time-dissonant, singsong-suicide style.

In addition to his membership in cLOUDDEAD and reaching quiet, why? has collaborated with Hood, Fog, boombip, jel and sole; he has toured the world twice, performed two Peel Sessions under the cLOUDDEAD moniker, and is admired by Boards of Canada, Mum, Stereolab, Daniel-son Famile, The Notwist and Mogwai.

why?’s quirky production and infectious melodies are merely sugar coating for the contents of a young man with unbuttoned lips and a gut spitting words.
