Akimbo is all askew. It’s messing with pop, playing with jazz, and finding space in time.
Created from a love of complex simplicity, angular harmony and serious fun, Pedro Velasco and Nell Greco lead this pedal-tastic project, seeking out the sweetest musical spots that often hide in plain sight. Inspired by the likes of Tom Waits, The Dirty Three, Eva Cassidy and Bill Frisell, Akimbo play the music they love, whether original or covered, and are ever in flux.
I Don’t Want To Grow Up (Tom Waits)
Tall Trees In Georgia (Eva Cassidy)
My Brooklyn Love Song (George Tibbles and Ramez)
Mambembe (Chico Buarque)
I Walk A Little Faster (Cy Coleman)
