Bastardgeist, aka Chicago's Joel Midden, is an intensely talented singer, kalimba player and producer who released his second LP, entitled Infinite Lives, in 2013 via Brainlove Records.
Bastardgiest has enthralled audiences around the USA and Europe with his delicate falsetto voice, textured electronics and acrobatic kalimba playing. He recently recorded live sessions of Notable American Women(gleaned from the LP) and L.A. Looks, a new song, for Derelict Music in London, shot in an abandoned mental hospital.
Midden also recently filmed for Bandstand Busking - expect those sessions soon - in the meantime, he will embark on some live dates in Scotland this February 1st & 2nd.
