Lake Street Dive
Lake Street Dive
Side Pony, recorded in the winter of 2015, has an exhilarating feel from start to finish. For listeners familiar with Lake Street Dive, it’s a natural evolution of the band’s sound. The arrangements offer a knowing nod to the past while the lyrics tackle the pitfalls of modern romance in a manner that’s often more playful than rueful. And lead singer Rachael Price’s vocals have a teasing swagger to them. Neither her heart nor her hairstyle will be messed with. A side pony, for Lake Street Dive, is really a metaphor for their philosophy and personality as a band, one that seamlessly incorporates R&B, pop, ’60s-era rock, and soul into a unique, dance-party-ready mix. As bassist Bridget Kearney puts it, “When we were settling on the album title, that one just stuck out to us as embodying the band’s spirit. We’ve always been this somewhat uncategorizable, weird, outlying genre-less band. That’s the statement we wanted to make with this record: be yourself.” The members of Lake Street Dive—named after an avenue of seedy bars in guitarist and trumpeter Michael “McDuck” Olson’s native Minneapolis—met in 2004 as students at Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music. Powerhouse singer Price fronts the quartet while Kearney and drummer Michael Calabrese comprise the rhythm section.
Joey Dosik
Joey Dosik is a singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist / producer with a voice that you may not expect to come out of that body. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Joey continues to be a part of the recent musical renaissance in the City of Angels. As a teenager he absorbed the Jazz tradition of Leimert Park while listening to the radio and his parents' Carole King records. After several years of touring as a pianist with other artists, he settled down in LA to focus on songwriting and collaboration with such artists as Vulfpeck, Miguel Atwood Ferguson and Mocky. Dosik recently released his "Game Winner EP" in June of 2016 — It was made in 2015 while recovering from a basketball related left knee injury. Upcoming is a full length album, "Inside Voice", which he co-produced with Mocky (Feist, Jamie Lidell), due for release in 2017.
