Lia Ices is a singer songwriter based in Sonoma, California. Her first album Necima was released in 2008, followed by critical acclaim for Grown Unknown and Ices. Lia’s emotionally driven and experimental pop music is both avant-garde and timeless. A natural yet refined grace permeates her work: she is a piano herself. Dancing on a finely crafted line between the
percussive qualities of her instrument, and the melodic elements within the rhythm of her voice, Ices’ music reveals itself as epiphany. With overt elegance as if from a bygone era, listening to Ices’ music inspires a psychic time slip, and it's hard to know if you’re wading in the warmest of memories
or awed by the invention and glow of new surroundings.
Her forthcoming album was written while pregnant with her daughter and during her first year of motherhood and explores personal spirituality, love and aliveness, death and time. She recorded with JR White ( GIRLS/ Tobias Jesso Jr) in LA, SF, and Stinson California. It will be released in early 2020.
Loverman is the moniker of singer/songwriter Sasha Papadin (frontman for Bay Area rockers ‘1955') who traded his guitar for a piano to create a 'Nick Cave... meets Chris Isaak' sound that swings with emotional, toe-tapping energy. The songs sound like they are being performed in a lounge bar in the California desert for a late-night crowd of rockers, femme fatales, and aging poets, while David Lynch watches from a corner booth smoking a cigarette, and stories unfold under swaying palm trees and neon lights.
’A stunningly realized slice of shiver-inducing romantic noir’ -Blackbook
The debut Loverman album ‘Wings of Desire’ is out now. The new single ‘Coming up Roses’, produced by Gus Seyffert (Beck, Dr. Dog, The Black Keys), will be released October 2019.
