Los Angeles – May 8, 2023 – Noted television composer David Schwartz (Arrested Development, Northern Exposure++) will co-host the popular bi-weekly Monday night club, Hunnypot Live – Where Music Lovers Go To Play, at West LA’s legendary music room The Mint on June 5. The well-liked event, hosted by music publisher John Anderson in his “Hot Tub Johnnie” persona, is known as a clubhouse for those involved in film and television music. David’s new band project, Vincent & Theo, will headline with a work-friendly set time of 8:15 pm. Before the music, John will interview David about his esteemed Hollywood career, starting at 7:15 pm.
Soul Smell is the unique project that resulted from a COVID file-sharing collaboration between two Los Angeles musical fixtures, Emmy-winning TV composer David Schwartz and singer/songwriter and session/touring guitarist Julian Coryell (Alanis Morissette, Demi Lovato) recording as Vincent & Theo.
Unlike the instrumental and guitar-oriented work they are known for, Soul Smell is a jazzy alt-rap affair that recalls both the spoken word and lyrical grunge of the 90s – Soul Coughing, 311, Cake, but sans guitar, along with a healthy dose of William Burroughs, Tom Waits, and Leonard Cohen’s world-weary slices of life.
In just a few short months, they had 11 songs which they filled out with some of their favorite musicians, some of whom will be joining on this gig: noted film and television singer/songwriter Lucy Schwartz (vocals, vocal arrangements), keyboard legend Larry Goldings (piano, synths), Death Cab for Cutie’s Zac Rae (keyboards, synths), and popular LA session drummer Jake Reed (drums, percussion). Some other top players helped on a few songs, including additional writing on “Bad Porn” by Isaiah Gage, R&B singer Antwaun Stanley, vocals on “Would Be Solar Panel Technician,” bass legend John Patitucci for the electric bass solo on “Junk Food Love,” and Tamir Barzilay gave some additional percussion to “Junk Food Love” as well.
Doors for this free event will open at 7 pm, John will interview David at 7:15 pm, Vincent & Theo will perform at 8:15 pm. They will be followed by André Miguel & The Moment at 9 pm and Fencer at 9:45 pm. Hot Tub Johnnie hits the turntables for the Afterparty at 10:15 pm.
