Adron, named Best Songwriter of 2012 by Atlanta's Creative Loafing, is rapidly being recognized as one of the most uniquely gifted songwriters and vocalists of this generation. Her music seamlessly blends Classical harmony with the playfulness of '60s Brazilian Tropicàlia, the earnestness and sentiment of songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Harry Nilsson, and the cerebral sincerity of the hymn song. In 2011, her newest album Organismo was voted by Atlanta's Creative Loafing magazine as #1 Album of the Year.
With her own 4-piece band she tours the eastern and southern regions of the US, playing alongside artists like Toubab Krewe, Reggie Watts, Reptar, Space Trucks (Of Montreal side project), Cate Le Bon, and Bright Black Morning Light. She is also a mainstay at the 30A Songwriters Festival. Outside her own creative endeavors, Adron has collaborated with artists such as Prefuse 73, Helado Negro, Francis & The Lights, The Shadowboxers, The Selmanaires, Little Tybee, and visual/sound artist Michael Alan. Recently, she produced a music video for her song "Pyramids" with director Barry Alexander Brown, video editor for Spike Lee. For the video, Adron and her bandmates constructed a ten-foot real-life pyramid, covered in found treasures, funded by fans via Kickstarter. She is currently recording material for her next two full-length records; one a concept album about death, mazes and the Amazon called Thanatrópica, the other a follow-up to Organismo titled Water Music.
"My favorite band ever." -Eddie Owen (Eddie Owen Presents, The Red Clay Theater, Eddie's Attic)
Kitty Snyder is a folk-dream-pop singer-guitarist who got her start in Athens, GA and now lives in Atlanta. In Athens she was on the indie label “pitch-a-tent records,” which also is the home to Cracker and Camper Van Beethovan, both of whom she has toured with extensively. Her songs have been called “introspective soundscapes, dreamy & vulnerable” and have won her the honor of opening for artists such as Arlo Guthrie & Alejandro Escovedo. Her charisma is evident in the intimate way she shares her experiences through lyrics and melody, perfect for the Eddie’s Attic listening room.
