DAVID LIEBE HART ((Tim&Eric))
Known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, and extensive tours throughout the US, Canada and Australia, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains. While his vast and bizarre catalog of songs about aliens, religion, and failed relationships has yielded cult hits, such as “Salame”, “Father & Son” and “Puberty”, his recent collaborations with electronic musician Jonah Mociun, AKA Th’ Mole, have propelled Liebe Hart into previously unexplored territory.
Throughout the past decade Liebe Hart has garnered a substantial and die-hard fan base, not only from his TV and film appearances but from his stints on the road performing music all across the US, UK, Ireland and Australia. His followers are extremely supportive and loyal, won over by David’s obvious goodheartedness, honesty and hilarious idiosyncrasies, as well his fun and engaging stage shows. As the public demands it, David is traveling the globe in 2015 in conjunction with the release of his new album, Astronaut. On the heels of his triumphant return to Australia in March, David will spend the rest of the spring and summer canvasing the US.
With Jonah Mociun as backing musician, Liebe Hart puts on a show certain to please old fans and new ones alike. In addition to creating electronicised versions of David’s old favorites, the duo performs their new songs along with puppets, projected video accompaniment, and David’s oddly endearing stories of past relationships and paranormal encounters.
CHIP THE BLACK BOY
Chip The Black Boy was once just one of David’s puppets but has taken on a life of his own with the help of frequent Liebe Hart collaborator Jonah Mociun who has re-fashioned Chip into a creepy high-pitched rapper. With an album of his own and a hit YouTube video (“Am I Weird?”) Chip now takes the stage as a solo act.
WHATEVER YOUR HEART DESIRES
Whatever Your Heart Desires is Jonah Mociun, a 19-year-old asexual cyborg orphan Eskimo. Raised on an anarchist commune which was eventually infiltrated and dismantled by Malaysian nihilists, she fled from her home at the age of 9, hopping a train from Alaska to South Central, California, where she lived in a refrigerator box and gradually taught herself to tap-dance using soda cans as shoes. Busking on the streets by day, and prostituting himself by night, Jonah eventually raised enough funds to purchase a stolen iPhone, with which he began composing music on an app called FunkyBeatz. Relocating to Oaxaca, Mexico at the age of 10, living under a banana tree, surviving mainly on wildcrafted fruits, leaves and insects, Mociun spent the next 13 years creating the music you hear today. Drawing her influences from old school hip hop, hardcore punk, and Japanese footwork, Whatever Your Heart Desires is Jonah’s best attempt at challenging mainstream EDM music.
