Dagmar & Joshua McClain

  • Wu Wei Tea Temple 1820 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard Fairfax, CA, 94930 United States (map)

Dagmar plays as a trio with cellist Joshua McClain. Josh will also open with a gorgeous solo avant-rock cello set. ♥ 

Dagmar is an indie classical, harmony driven female duo recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area from their prairie homeland of Iowa. A new music project with history, Gemma Cohen (vocals, bass) and Miranda Mallard (vocals, keyboard, guitar) are Dagmar's core. They have attained sister status after having sung together for over 8 years in the trio Rock Paper Scissors, and now in Dagmar since 2014.

Gemma and Miranda create original music while rocking their curly manes and singing from the depths of their souls. Harmonies continue to be a staple for this duo along with influences ranging from Phillip Glass to the Fleet Foxes. Dagmar's sound is raw, challenging, a vulnerable vocal driven exposition of Medieval harmonies and uncrumpled diaries.

Joshua McClain is a cellist, composer, and studio artist based in Oakland, CA. He is best known for his unbridled and mesmerizing solo performances which, using a looping pedal and effects processor, create intense, otherworldly soundscapes. He regularly performs with The Handsome Brunettes, led by six-time Emmy winning songwriter Monica Pasqual .

Regarded as one of the top artists in the Bay Area, Joshua was voted Musician of the Year in San Francisco at the Raw Artist RAWAwards showcase in 2013. He has shared the stage with Thievery Corporation, Aj Croce, Over the Rhine, Blame Sally, Gordi, Dagmar, and others.
