Waltz is known for the passion you can hear in his vocals and honest lyrics among his down-to-earth fingerpicking folk style. His music melds genres such as psychedelic folk rock with influences like traditional Chinese folk and classical music, producing a one-of-a-kind sound. Recent releases include singles filled with emotion “Fabric”, “Tibetan Bones”, and “Writer’s Block”, which is accompanied by an impressive stop-motion video: “Hundreds of man hours, dozens of back aches, and a couple friendly arguments later, my brother and I managed to create a one-of-a-kind stop motion production,” Waltz says. “‘Writer’s Block’ is about creativity for creativity’s sake, and the music video lives up to the song’s message!” The Enemy is highly awaited after his EP Burning Moonlight was released on March 10.

After living and performing in Beijing for a while, Waltz is settled in the DMV and performs regularly throughout the area. Find tickets to the show here, which will be opened by Nim and Umami House. “This will be the last time to catch me with the full band for a while, so you don’t want to miss out,” Waltz says. It is “sure to be a rocking good time of foot-stomping and heart-string-pulling.”

aSanTIS: ‘You Are a Part of the Highest Form of Creation’

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
