Powerkompany, is the brainchild of artist and musician Marie Davon. In an effort to express a complex topic in sonic manner, Marie Davon has shifted (if only briefly) from her usual dramatic cinematic pop to exchange dialogue through a soundscape that’s subtle shift in tonality. Fresh off of the release of her band Powerkompany’s two-part album “Fever and Chills,” Davon dips into new experiences with sparse compositional elements that use sonic loops to create one ethereal breath. Touching on different musical themes, she creates a meandering expression of challenge, triumph, intimacy and exploration. When not working on powerkomany and other projects, you can find Marie on the road touring with Cindy Wilson (of the B-52s).
Maggie Benoit’s objective is to produce enriching experiences that bolster the arts alongside entrepreneurial efforts in Atlanta. Her focus is to strengthen a community driven network, a conversation, a connection to resources and a place for beings to express constructively. This way the individual and community grow by staying curious, asking questions, creating solutions, as well as learning constructs of both personal and social space. The question arises, “how does one define the ability to connect the intimately personal to another tangibly?” Such an expression means finding love for self, love for another, love for something that holds meaning. Sharing said experience defines a landscape of varied media through intentional integration of work and life.
