The Signet: A Hive of Singer-Songwriters

While the Signet may be better known for its battalion of classical and jazz musicians, today's drones are just as interested in Lady Gaga as Gershwin. When not penning poems or performing in concert halls, many of our students keep busy composing and playing music with their Signet peers, much to the delight of any so lucky to visit the Hive during an impromptu performance. 

Here, vocalist Joshuah Campbell '16 and jazz guitarist Alex Graff '16 perform Campbell's original song, "One More Time." 

Of course, musical ambition doesn't end with graduation! Many Signet members continue to collaborate well after they leave Harvard. Just months ago, Jacob Brandt '14, Mateus Falci '14, Ben Lorenz '14, and Sam Richman '15 joined together to form the New York City based rock band The Golden Hours. Their first single, "I Still Miss You, Ramona Baker," can be seen below. 

Later this month, on April 21st, the Queen's Head Pub will host a concert of original material by Alex Graff and Tree Palmedo '16, followed by an encore performance at the Signet on May 5th. Alumni are encouraged to attend if they're in town.
