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.
