Two Feet’s Quick Musical Doodles Give Syracuse A Big-X-Cuse To Have Fun Review+Photos: Two Feet @ 95X Big-X-Cuse! 6/16/18
SYRCAUSE, NY- Bringing together some of the most popular names in alternative rock out there, Syracuse’s 95X debuted it’s first ever Big-X-Cuse Fest! With a line-up featuring both seasoned veterans and newcomers to the alternative rock scene, 95X’s lineup was very impressive considering it was the radio station’s first year hosting this event.
Singer-songwriter and producer, Two Feet, was the next act to take the stage. A native of Harlem, Zachary “Bill” Dess, better known by his stage name Two Feet, has an intriguing sound that intricately blends elements of blues, jazz and indie ambient tones with a smattering of some classic alternative rock sprinkled on top. With his smooth vocals and some snazzy guitar playing, I was eager to see this still-rising talent perform.
After some slight technical difficulties involving his kick not triggering, Two Feet opened with “Quick Musical Doodles” off of his debut 2016 EP from, First Steps. Consisting of some heavily synthesized bass in the background followed by some fresh guitar rips all culminating together around his buttery vocals, Two Feet was dishing out the Hendrix vibes from the get-go. I particularly enjoyed when Two Feet played his classic, “Go Fuck Yourself”, because it’s such a raw and relatable track that almost anyone whose been screwed over by their significant other can relate to. Also, not to mention the fact it’s an absolute banger with it’s bass drops and Two Feet’s light and airy vocals.
For such a great display of technicality and stage presence early on, I was beyond excited to see what the rest of the day had in store for me.
