Since 2014, Zoe Reynolds has been making music under the Kississippi moniker, but the release of her debut full length, Sunset Blush signals a change for the artist. Following a series of demo releases and EPs, Reynolds believes she has finally found her voice, calling Sunset Blush an honest recognition of the music she always wanted to make. The album fully immerses listeners in Kississippi’s sincerely heartfelt world, with Reynolds sharing every strength and struggle that fueled her writing. The album’s namesake comes from a flavor of boxed wine that’s frequently appeared throughout Reynolds’ adulthood; consumed on rooftops reached by ladders or in between sets at house shows. The album enlivens these moments saturated in nostalgia for listeners, Sunset Blush is more than just a debut, it’s Reynolds’ reassurance to herself and others that even when things are at their worst, brighter days are ahead, and you have the strength needed to get through it.
Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio Leggy is a blonde-heavy art-popped indie-punk dream-garage trio exploding with empowered earnestness, an undeniably catchy pop sensibility and that ever timeless grrrl in-and-out of love allure. Their energetic live shows are laced with dreamy, reverb tinged hum-along hooks leading to tunes that have been known to inspire and entrance.
Their first release, a 6 track EP titled "Cavity Castle" (produced by local musicians and Renaissance men Jerri Queen (Tweens, Vacation, Black Planet) and John Hoffman (Sleeves, Swim Team)) was released digitally in late April 2014 and on cassette (edition of 250) in July . The release of "Cavity Castle" kicked off a spree of positive domestic and international press as well as frequent exciting shows at local venues including MOTR Pub (with internationally renowned recording artists including Shilpa Ray and The Ghost Wolves), The Comet, The Northside Tavern and many other Cincinnati cultural mainstays including an extremely successful Tuesday night weekly residency at The Comet during the month of May. July 4th saw Leggy preforming their first outdoor festival set during the ever popular and strictly curated Northside Rock N' Roll Carnival (sharing the stage with acts such as Twin Peaks, Tweens, Idiot Glee, Radioactivity, Protomartyr, Jaill and several others).
In early August Leggy will embark on a three week tour of America's beautiful Midwest and East Coast, but before they skip town they will be in the studio getting another batch of sugary sweet summer-forever dreamy art garage punk pop tunes to be released this fall.
