Eartheater is the solo project of Queens-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Alexandra Drewchin. Her music exists in a world all its own, incorporating looped textures and pitch-shifted vocals alongside elements of mystical folk and ambient music.
Drewchin's music is anchored by her poetry, which delves into concepts of lost identity, mysticism and disembodiment. Her performances seem as much spiritual, transformative rites as they are "music."
We join Eartheater in the green room just before her performance at Le Poisson Rouge to discuss conceptual feedback loops, the singular and nomadic lifestyle of the touring musician, and what it means to be an eartheater before taking in a performance of her "Mask Therapy."
