Guest Artists

Over the last dozen years, Gabriel Kahane has often approached his work from the vantage point of an observer. He’s written songs about historical figures, action movie villains, and any number of buildings. He’s set celebrity tweets to music and tackled inequality through the lens of housing issues, resulting in 2018's emergency shelter intake form, commissioned and premiered by the Oregon Symphony, where Kahane serves as Creative Chair. But now, for the first time since 2011's Where are the Arms, he’s telling his own story. With Magnificent Bird, his second album for Nonesuch Records, Kahane brings to life a trunk of songs written in self-imposed isolation—a full year off the internet.
