The New Parish in Oakland hosted The Seshen, Con Brio, and Bells, three Bay Area bands that are blending different musical genres to create new music.

Bells are blending bits of calypso with jazz and rock — add in some great four-part harmonies and they have quite a unique sound we’ve never heard before. Working on their first album, this is a band to keep an eye on. You can hear some demos of their music below.

Con Brio are also blending different genres (soul, jazz, R&B)¬†together to create something different. Led by Xandra Corpora’s excellent singing, this six-piece band rocked the New Parish, and it’s no wonder they have a large following in the Bay Area. Check some of their music below.

The Seshen took the crowd on a ride with their blend of electronic, R&B, and indie rock. With vocals by Lalin St. Juste and Arasha Orr, The Seshen creates a sonic landscape that pulls you right into their music. The song “Oblivion” from their self-titled album is an excellent example of the landscape they create.
