Helen Money
Helen Money
Helen Money is cellist Alison Chesley - a Los Angeles based musician known for her emotive and intense music. Her newly released album, Become Zero (Thrill Jockey records) was written after the death of both of her parents, and amplifies Chesley’s musical ferocity with palpable sadness and striking beauty. Using her extensively manipulated cello, Chesley joins forces for this special show in Chicago with collaborator and co-producer Will Thomas.

“Alison Chesley manipulates her cello with authority and intensity. Her concert made us delve into the darkness and unspeakable beauty of her music, alternating ferocity and sadness. Visceral, haunted, emotional sounds.” - Douche Froude/Paris

“A Chicago classical-cellist-turned-Avant-Metal virtuoso.” - Boston Phoenix

"Acoustic guitar, saxophone, hypnotic tribal percussion, rhythm loops, bursts of static, and Lamont’s own trance-like vocal chants…imagine if Peter Gabriel had invited Michael Gira to collaborate on Passion, his soundtrack album for The Last Temptation Of Christ, and you’re getting there"-Phil Freeeman Freelance/Reverb Nation
