Layers and Frames
An electronic/world/folk duo
Layers And Frames is a Philly-based duo offering a refreshing blend of guitar loops, chill, world, downtempo and folk music. It is the musical brainchild of Frederic Brewer, a French-American singer-songwriter who spent four years in China, served in the Peace Corps and developed a signature sound reflecting the globalized world. Frederic leads with vocals and looped guitar while pianist extraordinaire Mack Zoolick lays a foundation of keys, synth bass and vocal harmony.
