BAILEN’s gorgeous harmonies, striking arrangements and evocative songwriting springs from a very deep well. Growing up in NYC, the siblings, David, Daniel (twins!) and Julia Bailen were raised by their professional orchestral musician parents, and the young trio immersed themselves in a record collection that included Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Carole King and The Band. Their amazing three-part harmonies have been compared to The Staves and Fleet Foxes, however, on their debut album, Thrilled To Be Here, BAILEN have created something all their own. Produced by GRAMMY-Award winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, Manchester Orchestra, The War on Drugs), BAILEN’s shiny gleam and meticulous songcraft combine with the group’s unusual self-awareness, musicality and bite.
Named one of Sofar Sounds’ Artists to Watch in 2018, BAILEN has toured or collaborated with The Lone Bellow, Amos Lee and Joseph, among many others. Modern, melodic and soulful, BAILEN is twisting pop music in new directions, an undeniable, and welcome new arrival.
Mica is the music project of Mia Lloyd and Mia Huggs. The Mias have known each other since childhood but became musical friends in 2015 at the Institute for the Musical Arts in Goshen, MA. Mica was started in 2015 by Mia Lloyd, as they began to share their original songs and work on an ep. Released in 2016, the ep Wading presented lo-fi recordings of dense, poetic songs. Since then Mica has grown into a duo, and together the Mias are exploring new musical ground by reinterpreting the artists they love and their original songs.
