One of many bands nurtured by the East Village club Nublu, New York's effortlessly-chill Wax Poetic has been around since the '90s, but the group has shifted lineups over the years. Guided by composer Ilhan Ersahin, the current incarnation of the band features Sissy Clemens and Gabriel Gordon, who were on hand for Wax Poetic's cool, silky set at WFUV and The Alternate Side's CMJ showcase on October 16.
Wax Poetic's smooth new album, On a Ride, which came out in September, also includes guest vocalists like Natalie Walker, Jovanotti and former Wax Poetic member Norah Jones.
