The FEU Musicians
Anson Jones is a singer, composer, and songwriter from New York City whose work pulls in turns from modern jazz, modern classical music, and popular music. She graduated from Princeton University in the class of 2022, where she won the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts and the Isodore and Helen Sacks Memorial Prize in Music. She is 2022-2023 Fulbright-Harriet Hale Woolley scholar and FEU resident, composing a suite of music inspired by Parisian examples of glass architecture. In between academic projects, she enjoys making more commercial music – she loves indie, rock, and folk music, and in June 2022 she released an EP of jazz-rock fusion on Modern Icon Recordings. For both her commercial and academic music, she’s played with her own groups around New York City, joined in writer’s showcases like the New York Songwriters’ Circle and the 5PM Concert Series, and performed at the 2020 Litchfield Jazz Festival. Anson is passionate about many other fields as well – she has passions for music cognition, computer science, art, and architecture. She has even worked at a series of architecture firms and as a data science intern at a neuroscience lab. Her range of interests all inform her approach towards music-making as an interdisciplinary process.
Born in 1997, Timothée Lambert began his artistic studies in the preparatory class of ENSBA Lyon before joining the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Having studied photography and stage design, he went back to his childhood obsession: drawings, stories, and lettering. His current works are inspired by diaries and impulsive ideas, with which he seeks to become comfortable to create intimacy with the reader. Timothée recently took part in the group exhibition Would Do Again and a film evening showcasing resident filmmakers.
