Creatives & Cast Behind FURY
Formed by James Jackson and front singer Lilie Hoy, YASSOU is a continually evolving group of musicians, producers, composers, and visual artists committed to bridging the worlds of pop and classical art. Named a band “that should be on your radar” by Billboard, YASSOU has been compared to Radiohead and FKA twigs.
Band members include Theo Quimby, Van Jackson Weaver, AJ Krumholz, and Patrick Aguirre.
Composer and violinist Kristina Dutton’s rigorous classical training led her toward a brief career in orchestral work, but she soon gave herself over to her love affair with the art of pop music, writing string arrangements for indie bands and performing with rockers like Glen Hansard, Peter Bjorn and John, and the Autumn Defense.
String players include Mia Bella D’Aguelli, HIllary Lewis, and Crystal Pascucci.
FURY was created with dancers from San Francisco Ballet and Alonzo King LINES Ballet. International freelance artists have joined for subsequent performances.
