Tracing the ingredients that comprise the Cathedrals’ sound is like deciphering an incredibly complex recipe that somehow results in a simple and indescribably delicious dish. Vocalist Brodie Jenkins was a part of her family’s Folk group, while multi-instrumentalist Johnny Hwin’s childhood was immersed in Classical music (he ultimately scored a touring gig with Electro Pop outfit Blackbird, Blackbird). When they met through the San Francisco arts community, they bonded over common Rock interests. Together as Cathedrals, Jenkins and Hwin create an amazingly organic and powerful Electronic sound that blends Jenkins’ soulful and emotive voice and Hwin’s broad musical arsenal, including a sinewy guitar presence that resembles The Edge with Ambient undertones.
