Faux Fiction, Half Gringa, Hello Death

Half Gringa

(Chicago, IL )

An emotional scab-picker, her work explores the confluence of Latinx and Midwestern identity. Her first LP, Gruñona, reveals a palimpsest of wounds upon scars. Contemplative and choleric, all manner of memorials to the past are revealed—mountains, dive bars, orchards, trains, expressways, tiny kitchens, Chicago, Caracas, and outer space. With a full band, Half Gringa's debut coaxes confession after confession out of Olive's insistent guitar and undaunted vocals; Andres Fonseca's tender bass lines; Sam Cantor's impish, mesmerizing guitar; and crowned by Ivan Pyzow's trumpet swagger. Simultaneously boastful, scathing, forgiving, and hopeful, Gruñona confronts the human ache of wanting and curse of taking. It recognizes that an identity is a journey that names you.

Hello Death

(Milwaukee, WI )

Hello Death is: Marielle Allschwang: Voice, guitar, violin. Nathaniel Heuer: Voice, bass, guitar, percussion. Shawn Stephany: Guitar, lap steel. Erin Wolf: Voice, piano, accordion, percussion.

Faux Fiction

(Milwaukee, WI )

The band consists of guitarist/vocalist Gabby Kartz, bassist/vocalist Peter Hair, and drummer Paul Tyree.
