Episode 15: Davóne Tines

Davóne Tines brings not only his gorgeous and powerful voice to all of his performances, but also a thoughtfulness about his platform, and an ability to engage with the social consciousness. In our conversation, we discuss his upcoming 2017 Resonant Bodies set on September 5th entitled “Memorial”, a preview of a forthcoming album connecting songs that span time and genre with questions about spirituality, family, and community. We also discuss Davóne’s work with artists like Peter Sellars, Kaija Saariaho, and John Adams; his education at Harvard and Juilliard; and his process of engaging with harder-to-look-at subject matter.
