Annie O Presents Kate Davis

New York-Standard Sounds

Kate grew up as a jazz darling, but she grew into something significantly more dynamic. Days spent practicing and performing became nights spent writing music—cathartic indie rock—simultaneously informed by and rebutting of her training. Time intended for technique slipped into secret listening sessions of Beach House, Elliot Smith and TV On The Radio. In the same bright, arresting croon that ignited her youthful stardom, Davis created confessionals. Throughout twelve tumultuous tracks, she poetically reflects upon the intricacies of what it is to live, ruminating on topics too close to her heart; identity, self-worth, loss. Trophy will be released November 8, 2019 on Solitaire Recordings. Annie O caught up with Kate before her show at The Standard, East Village on Sept 9.

Annie O Presents: Roan Yellowthorn

New York-Standard Sounds

Roan Yellowthorn 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.
