Pat Grossi is Active Child, an LA-based musician with a penchant for both choral music and New Wave synth pop. While the combination is not entirely unique (see also, the mid-80’s), Grossi’s voice sets Active Child apart from most other bands you’re likely to hear these days. His heaven-sent falsetto rising above a warm tenor that he developed through his formative years in the Philadelphia Boys Choir will send chills down your spine if not inspire tears of elation. For his recent in-studio session at KEXP, Pat brought his harp to play for a couple of songs and bass player Stratton Easter to back him up on the more electronic numbers.
