Miss Grit was born in an NYU dorm room in January 2018. While her friends were
celebrating winter break with their families, frontwoman, Margaret Sohn, was behind locked
doors, screaming into a mic through her guitar pedal board and out her amplifier. Back in her
home state of Michigan, Margaret has recorded cello accompaniment for her mentor, Flint
Eastwood, and worked as an assistant on My Brightest Diamond’s upcoming album. When she
isn’t taking electrical engineering and computer science classes at NYU, Margaret, builds guitar
pedals, designs voice-activated light displays, does post-production for film, and works as a
studio technician in New York. Margaret, who has played the guitar for fifteen years, has been
featured in several bands, including the band in which she met her soon to be
mixer/engineer/co-producer/friend Charles Mueller, Lakewhales. Margaret’s biggest inspirations
are her favorite artists, St. Vincent and Nels Cline.
The music of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Kate Davis has been turning heads in New York's music scene since 2012. Whether she's crooning rootsy ballads or plucking bright riffs from her bass, the gutsy songstress from Portland, Oregon, puts a fresh spin on the standards and brings a canonical sensibility to her own lush tracks.
Lauded by MTV as one of 2014's "15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop," Kate grew up with an instrument in her arms and a head full of inventive lyrics. Her lifelong training makes for smart, warm pop that's as musically nuanced as it is addictive. If you put a mid-career Jenny Lewis album in a room with Regina Spektor's coloring, Joanna Newsom's lyric poetry, and a dose of Tina Fey's sharp wit—then added a couple decades of rigorous musical education and a shift dress—Kate Davis might come strolling out.
