The Satellite Presents
Starting out life as a foster kid in St. Louis, the half-Apache/half-German, hard-to-describe (pin down and destroy) artist, Kristeen Young, has always been the very definition of D.I.Y. Step by small step (without a record label, booking agent, or manager) Young has moved from difficult beginnings to recording and touring (as opening act) with some of the most respected musicians of the era: David Bowie, Morrissey, Dave Grohl & Pat Smear, Nick Zinner (and more). With her new album, “The SubSet” (tbr Sep. 4, 2019) Young continues this take-the-reigns rule of action by writing, arranging, producing, mixing, and playing almost every instrument (except live drums: played by drummer, Jefferson “Baby Jef” White) herself. The dissonant piano bashing, tribal beats, operatic vocals, and incisive lyric moments are all there, but in changing contexts and mixed-genre settings. In support of the release this autumn, Young will be playing residencies in various cities: including Berlin in NYC in September, The Satellite in Los Angeles and DNA Lounge in San Francisco in October, and various venues in London in November.
Fox Violet blends ambient dream scapes with dark pop rock hooks and soulful vocals that look at heart break & longing. With soaring layered psychedelic guitars and crunchy synths Fox Violet crafts bold stories that are both ethereal, relatable and honest. Gritty, raw, and voicing the underdog, FV songs are written from other worldly perspectives that are haunting but familiar.
