The Never Content is similar to an old French saying “jamais deux sans trois,” which translates into the belief that if an event takes place twice, it will probably happen a third time.
The brainchild of three musicians: Joe Tag, (a New York native) & Liz Saxon, (a Chi-Town Rep) with Tristan Leral, (a Parisian expat), united forces to create an original sound palate of cinematic, electronic, & organic songs, culminating all of their eclectic musical influences.
It all started in 2007 when Joe Tag, drummer/writer/producer & founder of iconic NYC projects such as Etro Anime, stillLife, & Buddhafly, met vocalist Liz Saxon, who had just landed in New York City after a year long pilgrimage in Japan. The two merged forces in a series of successful performances and then decided to lay the foundation for a new project they would call, The Never Content.
Joe & Liz, heavily influenced by the daring styles of Massive Attack, Portishead, & Radiohead, and the raw, unfettered songwriting of Paul Weller, Peter Gabriel, & Tom Waits, decided to call upon Engineer/Producer Tristan Leral (Etro Anime, Mary J Blige, Lizz Fields) to get onboard & help bring their vision to fruition.
The result is a dense, emotional journey through musical valleys with electronic textures, organic streams of fluid vocals, & airy, cinematic hues sure to please music aficionados at large.
Check out their self-titled debut album, "The Never Content" released in 2012, "The Second Album" released in 2016, and the most recent, "The Third Album," all available everywhere.
