Vita and The Woolf
Inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, Philadelphia’s Vita and the Woolf just released their long-awaited new album, Tunnels on June 16 on Believe Global Label Services.
The project has received widespread critical acclaim, among others finding a fan in M83 who wrote about them for USA Today as well as recently being dubbed a “Band You Need To See” by Billboard. A dynamic and cerebral collection of soulful pop, the album touches on power dynamics in relationships and society as well as sexual discovery and empowerment.
Driven by the anthemic voice of front woman, Jennifer Pague and supported by the dynamic drumming of Adam Shumski and guitar stylings of Dane Galloway, Vita and the Woolf has been melding cross-genre influences in their powerhouse electronic style since the first EP Fang Song was released in 2014.
The band’s head-turning live show has since grown to reflect both the range of Pague’s vocals and the music’s shape shifting energy. In 2016 and 17 they have toured with Rasputina, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Bell X1 with other festival appearances scheduled for summer 2017 including Firefly Music Festival.
Following a long stint in the role of harmony singer for several bands in Charleston, South Carolina, Grace Joyner made the decision to move to center stage with the release of her EP Young Fools in the Spring of 2014.
Grace Joyner on her EP – “Young Fools serves to reflect on a difficult, yet incredibly important time in my life. I think there is something valuable in admitting your mistakes, as well as recognizing the power within you to leave them behind. Somewhere in the middle of learning that getting hurt does not make you weak, I started the healing process – I started writing music.”
Where Young Fools served as Joyner’s introduction to songwriting, a chance to explore her musical muse and tread her own artistic path, Maybe Sometimes in C is here to reveal what she has found along the way. Teaming up again with producer and engineer, Wolfgang Zimmerman, Joyner uses Maybe Sometimes in C to further define her musical perspective and showcase her maturation as a songwriter. Addressing unrequited love, meeting yourself in a moment of failure, and most notably the importance of taking action, Maybe Sometimes in C reflects on moving on from the time of heartbreak and into a place of independence and self-assurance.
