Annie O Presents: Roan Yellowthorne

New York-Standard Sounds

Roan Yellowthorne is actually an alter ego designed to create a safe space for artist, Jackie McLean who never felt comfortable with her given name: “Roan Yellowthorn feels like mine because no one gave it to me—I gave it to myself. It came from within and it feels true.” Her first album, ‘Indigo,’ came out in 2018 on Blue Elan Records, which she often performs with her partner, Shawn Strack. We caught up with the singer-songwriter before her show on August 26 at The Standard, East Village’s Penthouse as part of Annie O’s series.

Annie O Presents: Raffaella

New York-Standard Sounds

Born and raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Raffaella is quick to rattle off Billie Holiday, St. Vincent, and Regina Spektor as her biggest influences. She spent the early days of her career collaborating with the band Bråves who encouraged her to begin releasing original music. Raffaella's experience as a student in California inspired her breakout single Sororicide, featuring bright piano bubbles and a homage to Heathers.  Following her debut, Raffaella’s tracks, Bruce Willis, and NASA's Fake continued to develop her clever and catchy dream pop sound, giving us another peak at her forthcoming EP. Raffaella is back in NY and Annie O caught up with her before her show at The Standard, East Village on May 6.
