Heavy MakeUp is the new experimental group comprised of unlikely collaborators, Edie Brickell, CJ Camerieri (CARM, Paul Simon, Bon Iver) and Trever Hagen (music educator). Heavy MakeUp is their really cool debut album.
Crafted and created by the trio, Heavy MakeUp comprises 11 tracks that delve into a realm of musical experimentation, capturing their spontaneous and inquisitive approach to music-making. The trio utilize vocals, synthesizers, drum machines, and brass instruments to create this sonic journey.
This album marks their official maiden collaboration as a collective, following their initial collab when, in 2022, they worked together on "More and More," a project released under the banner of Camerieri and Hagen's venture, CARM. Encouraged by their collaborative chemistry from that experience, Brickell, Camerieri, and Hagen embarked on a three-day creative exploration, during which they engaged in improvisational sessions that would ultimately serve as the foundation for Heavy MakeUp.
