    Collectively led by bassist Keith Witty and saxophonist Christophe Panzani, THIEFS features an expandable line-up… from stripped down sax/bass/drums trio to sextet featuring piano and vocalists in English and French. Fully acoustic to fully electronic, THIEFS weave elements of modern composition and improvisation into a boundary-less foundation of beats. THIEFS’ soon-to-be-released sophomore record, GRAFT, explores notions of nationality, immigration, otherness and the way we as humans evolve and adapt to new cultural and physical landscapes. The new record features David Frazier Jr. on acoustic and electronic drums, Aaron Parks on piano and keyboards, and Mike Ladd, Gaël Faye and Guillermo E. Brown on vocals.
