The full-length debut from Los Angeles-based band Valley Queen, Supergiant takes its title from the most massive and luminous yet fastest-burning stars in the universe. “The song ‘Supergiant’ is about how we’re all made up of the same stuff as stars, and I liked the idea of tying the whole album together with that metaphor,” says Carol. “It takes all the drama you hear on the record—the aggressive, chaotic moments, and the more beautiful or quieter moments—and puts it all into a more galactic perspective.”
"Valley Queen comes from the Neil Young school of great music. They are fronted by Natalie Carol, whose voice is simply amazing." - Bob Boilen, NPR: ALL SONGS CONSIDERED
with Support from: Foxtrot & the Get Down
Foxtrot & the Get Down began at West Chester University through mutual musical interests between singer/songwriter Colin Budny and bassist Ken Bianco. Bonding over acts like G. Love & Special Sauce and A Tribe Called Quest, Budny and Bianco began creating music and playing sets around Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. After adding vocalist Erica Ruiz, the band released their debut EP "Sold the Soul" in 2014.
After signing to Nashville based indie label American Echo Records, and adding their permanent fixture at drums Jimmy Iovine, the band began toured extensively, and in February 2017, the band released their debut LP, "Roots too Deep". With positive critical response, a strong social media following, raucous live shows, and a growing fan base, the band re-entered the studio in the fall of 2017.
In October 2017, Foxtrot released "Shine", the first in a series of singles that showcases the band's growing sound. Showcasing both Budny and Ruiz's vocal strengths, hooky songwriting, and a horn section, Foxtrot blends the ideals of Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, Alabama Shakes, while staying true to their rock, soul, pop, and blues roots. Since “Shine”, the band has dropped two more singles “Down & Out” and “Battered and Blue” via Soundly Music. Foxtrot has continued to expand their live shows, playing shows/festivals with the likes of Bon Jovi, The Killers, Portugal the Man, The Revivalists, Arkells, Kendrick Lamar and many more.
