California Love—made up of Taylor Simone and rapper Josh Mac, both CC’14—and Nøvachørd (aka Mitchell Veith, CC ’15) will be opening Bacchanal on April 12, according to a Facebook post by Bacchanal Concert Chair Ben Kornick, CC ’16, and Simone.
The student openers were chosen by a student vote, which opened on Monday after Bacchanal canceled a Battle of the Bands performance scheduled for March 28.
“We are super excited for the upcoming show and were thrilled with the voter turnout for the battle,” Kornick said about the voting results in a Facebook message.
Simone recently released the video for her song, “Greedy,” and California Love is her working with Mac, who she’s known since high school. EDM artist Nøvachørd is something of a newcomer to the campus music scene.
“Most of my music I’ve shown to more close friends and I just recently started expanding my reach,” Veith said. “It’ll be a great pop to share my music with a lot of people. … Obviously I’m super excited—two of my favorite days at Columbia so far have been Bacchanal.”
Taylor Simone, CC ’14, may only be a first-year, but the Los Angeles-born singer-songwriter has already come across the country to New York to pursue her career as a musician. Simone will play the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe in Alphabet City tonight, where slam poets and performing artists like Saul Williams and Ntozake Shange have both taken the stage. Spectrum talked with Simone about her songwriting style, her influences, and her plans for the future.
