RADDA RADDA
RADDA RADDA
RADDA RADDA is a fresh Rock/Pop/Americana group from Minneapolis, MN, USA. The band’s many years of nonstop writing, touring and musical experimentation with scores of previous, separate projects ultimately brought them together in the spring of 2017. While the group deliberately kept a low profile in its early days (complete with a peculiar, cryptic social media presence), RADDA RADDA has worked rigorously and surreptitiously writing, recording, and refining their sonic efforts into a rock/Americana confessional of sorts. Their music spans a bridge between heartbreak and “hell-why-not,” built from howls at the moon, heartfelt lyrics and walls of dirty telecaster twang, all the while maintaining an unmistakable pop sensibility that succeeds in fighting shy of the predictable. Their debut album is to be released spring 2018.

Jillian Rae
Jillian Rae has been a heavy hitter in the Minnesota music scene for years, playing with as many musicians as humanly possible. In the past, she had been known to lend her fiddle chops in the Duluth-based band Two Many Banjos, and also spent some time fronting the local pop country staple, The Killer Hayseeds. Currently, when she isn't performing with her own band, you can still catch her playing fiddle and singing with a number of bands around town: Corpse Reviver (Early American Folk, Bluegrass), Steve Kaul & The Brass Kings (Folk Revisionist), Brian Just Band ('60's California Pop), and The Blackberry Brandy Boys (Cosmic Country), and the Fiddle Heirs (four fiddles and a bass).
Savannah Smith
Savannah Smith
A series of YouTube videos, each one more precious than the last, paint Minneapolis’ Savannah Smith as a ukulele-slinging Jack Johnson disciple—particularly in an adorable take on “Bitter Heart” by Zee Avi (who’s on Johnson’s Brushfire Records), aided by some smirking, unofficial sign language from her roommate. But the seriousness Smith shows when performing her own songs, like the punchy “Ventriloquism,” nicely balances her jazz-informed cooing and displays a talent for lyrical density that raises her simple melodies.
