Okapi

Fri   Mar   25   2022 - 3:00 PM Pilot Light

Okapi is a Midwestern-born, Asheville-based avant-rock duo that employs upright bass, cello, and voice. Their raw and intricate songwriting is cathartic but inviting, carrying honest and satirical messages that aim to stimulate a universal confrontation with reality, while encouraging consciousness, healthy growth, and individual empowerment in the curious and attentive observer.

Okapi was serendipitously born in 2012 whenScott Gorski met Lindsey Miller through a strange entanglement of Craigslist inquiries. Lindsey, a classically trained cellist, had departed from the stifling conservatory direction while Scott, a self-taught upright bassist and singer, was seeking new and inventive avenues outside of traditional music. They crossed paths somewhere in the middle and worked together to form their own unique voice, which over many embodiments, eventually became a cohesive compilation of all the things they appreciated about various styles of music and sound. In short, they created the art that they wanted to experience first hand.
