The Arcane Insignia have been hitting the New York music scene like a beautiful tempest. James Alexander on guitars and vocals coupled with Antoinette Ady playing violin yields a ferocious and powerful dynamic duo. Their music is exciting and sweepingly emotional, leaving you with the feeling that you've been taken on a wild, epic romance in some forgotten world. Songs that haunt you, lyrics that seep into you and strings that keep pulling you into a musical wonderland, what more could you ask from a pair of musicians which surpass the usual songwriting formats and dive into new territory.
James Alexander is no stranger to an artist's life; both his parents were talented actors and he grew up with creativeness all around him. He credits music as having a unique quality which can save lives as it did for him during dark times and he now seeks to use music to inject a passion that can truly affect people. You can best hear this in his haunting vocals which are reminiscent of Kurt Cobain.
Antoinette Ady has well over a decade of violin behind her which has taken shape from countless concerts, orchestras, talent shows and private tutoring. Unlike most other classically trained violinists, Ady also writes music and sets out to create beautiful, moving pieces wherever she can. Her skill is well honed and her playing is captivating. She manages to use her violin as an incredible force that moves each song into hidden places and at the same time takes them to mountaintops and carries you through every valley of emotion.
The dictionary credits "arcane" to mean: known or understood by very few; mysterious; secret; obscure; esoteric and the word "insignia" as: a distinguishing mark or sign. The Arcane Insignia create a unique style of music that weaves tons of subtle and secretive feelings, however based on the response they have received from only their first, few released songs and early performances, they promise to be an act that will not remain hidden or misunderstood for long. They are that rare combination of artists which specialize in doing what art was meant to do: create an emotional impact. This pair is sure to leave their insignia on you, cherish the opportunity.
