Biography

There are at least two artists with the name Pocket.

1. A female Multi-instrumentalist song arranger/Solo Artist (active from 2004 to present)
2. An electro artist (dates unknowin)

1. Pocket is a one woman recording/performing/visual art project based out of Philadelphia, PA and Eugene OR who works across genres, fusing complex guitar arrangements with classical pop song structures to create concept albums. She often layers dream pop vocals over heavy riffs to create a singular intensity in her work. She has mostly been associated with creating work that relates to the freak-folk, young america, new weird america, lofi, alt-psychedelic, anti-folk, underground pop and Americana genres. She has been said to create all the visual art in her work and has shown her work in different Galleries in Philadelphia, Portland and New York under the psuedonym NewGho, which she credits for creating the artwork in her releases. Relatively little is known about her, as she rarely gives interviews.

In 2004, Pocket released her first album ‘Spinal Accord’ which was largely a collection of curated home cassette tape recordings of her playing songs she wrote as a teenager. Her second album, ‘Hyper Plural Tapes’, released in 2006, came out as proving to be a compilation with more solid forms of songwriting, and some consider it a critique on ‘pluralism’ as a newly-minted cultural phenomenon.
