Perfume Genius

Perfume Genius mastermind Mike Hadreas is a Seattle-based singer/songwriter who crafts spare, evocative numbers that speak plainly of the growth that occurs after confronting the trials and tribulations of life head-on. The haunting, piano-laden numbers that make up his gorgeous new record, Put Your Back N 2 It, are drenched in raw emotion and tender feelings. The songs sound like they come from a delicate, heartbroken place, but there are elements of hope and strength that pulse from the heart of the album. Perfume Genius's poignant, powerful music is reminiscent of the diaphanous elegance of Antony and the Johnsons, and this intimate Cedar show should be the perfect environment to be entirely swept away by this emerging young talent.
