Nakami is an acoustic soul vocalist, currently studying developmental psychology at Teachers College. A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Nakami is a self-taught pianist and acoustic guitarist, and has been featured at the Walker Art Center as a part of a young artists showcase. A former classically trained cellist, Nakami infuses classical vocal melodies with soul and jazz sounds to create a unique soul singer-songwriter atmosphere. Influenced by her time as a soloist in the Tufts University Third Day Gospel Choir, Nakami has begun to experiment with gospel, spirituals, and the blues in her lyrics and musical compositions. She will be joined by saxophonist Randolph M. Scott-McLaughlin II, doctoral student in Counseling Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. He was trained to play jazz saxophone at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, and further honed his craft while attending Carnegie Mellon University where he also recorded his first album. While Randolph's style of music is rooted in the improvisational nature of the jazz tradition, he does not limit himself to any one approach to playing music.
The Corduroy Suit is a three-piece ensemble inspired by folk sounds, vocal harmonies and a grand ole time. Noah Teachey, Johnny Schmergel and Lindsay Burstedt met at TC and have quickly bonded over their love of music. As a new band, they are writing their own tunes and covering anything and everything from 50's doo-woop to 90's rap. Feel free to swing by for a song, a quick smile or heck, the entire show! The Suit is stoked to play at TC's library.
