LPR Presents
(Le) Poisson Rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences.
LPR prides itself in offering the highest quality eclectic programming, impeccable acoustics, and bold design. The state-of-the art performance space, engineered by the legendary John Storyk/WSDG, offers full flexibility in multiple configurations: seated, standing, in-the-round, and numerous alternative arrangements. The adjoining gallery space — The Gallery at LPR — functions as an art gallery, secondary bar, and event space. A work of art itself, the physical facilities are the embodiment of the experimental philosophy that drives the venue.
LPR is a source you can trust for exposure to visionary work, people of character, and a consistently dynamic environment. We invite you to immerse yourself in a nightlife of true substance and vitality.
James Tillman
James Tillman
Hailing from Washington, DC, singer-songwriter and musician James Tillman fell in love with the sound of music at an early age. Exposure to his parents' extensive album collection, which included everything from Afrika Bambaataa to Joni Mitchell, and solo karaoke concerts with a Fisher Price toy cassette player planted musical seeds within him.

James' unwavering desire to become a singer was ignited by iconic artists such as Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and D'Angelo. After discovering that Marvin Gaye was a native Washingtonian, James became further driven to forge his own musical path. Drenched in the tradition of these greats yet also inspired by contemporary producers, James' sound is rooted in soulful R&B with a modern twist.

James released his debut EP, Shangri La, on April 29, 2014, and his begun to catch the ear of music industry. He has been written about by various blogs and publications including Okayplayer.com and Essence Magazine. His music has been played on various radio stations, including KCRW and Gilles Peterson's BBC 6 radio program. Recorded in sunny Sao Paulo Brazil, Shangri La reacquaints the world with meaningful lyrics and soul music that makes you feel good. Based in earnest artistry and love, James is destined to continue creating timeless music.

CE
Based in hip hop, with soul, r&b, alternative and electronic influences.

I was once asked to give three words to describe my style of music making. I've forgotten all but one: spiritual.
I would say that means two things...the state of mind, as well as the musical genre.

I like the word cryptic...I believe Shakespeare was the world's first emcee.

And I like the word dream.

Yes I like cryptic and dream as replacements for the two I forgot.

But really, take from it what you will.
