Kristeen Young
Kristeen Young
Kristeen Young is an American singer-songwriter and pianist. Her touring band is known as KRISTEENYOUNG (which currently includes "Baby" Jeff White on drums and Sylvia Black on bass). Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Young began playing piano as a teenager and later attended art school. She has released seven studio albums. Young has also sung with several artists including David Bowie and Morrissey. She also recorded with record producer Tony Visconti and musician Dave Grohl.

In 1997, she released her debut album Meet Miss Young and Her All Boy Band. In the early 2000s, she began working with Tony Visconti on Breasticles, which featured a duet with David Bowie.[1] On 2004's X, the opening track "No Other God" was a duet with Brian Molko of Placebo.

Besides her own work, Young has also been featured on other artists' records. She appeared on David Bowie's Heathen in 2002, provided the operatic vocals in Morrissey's single "That's How People Grow Up" in 2008, sang vocals on an alternate version of "New Kid" by Monokino in 2009,[2] and collaborated with GUIDES to perform a cover of "Leave Me Alone" by New Order in 2015.

In May 2014, Young released her seventh album, The Knife Shift, which was recorded with Dave Grohl who played various instruments, including drums, piano, guitars and bass.[3][4]

Young recorded a new album in 2016 titled Live! at the Witch's Tit. A tentative release date has been set for 2017 and an album preorder is available on the band's website. A series of music videos in support of her latest album are scheduled to be released throughout 2017.
Well Hung Heart
Well Hung Heart
There is no mistaking the bluesy undercurrent that forms the bedrock of Well Hung Heart's raw and uncompromising Rock sound. British born guitarist Robin Davey cut his teeth with the Blues elite, jamming onstage with the likes of Buddy Guy and recording with Mick Jagger. Davey quickly secured a place as the youngest ever inductee into the British Blues Hall Of Fame, and has built a reputation as an eclectic and cutting edge musical mind.

Singer Greta Valenti grew up amongst the deep-rooted musical traditions of New Orleans. Though the two's early years were spent on opposite sides of the Atlantic, they have both found common ground in their passion for the raw honesty of music, delivered in its most unprocessed and unrestricted form.

With a dose of Hendrix, and a nod to PJ Harvey, Well Hung Heart is just as comfortable channeling Nirvana as they are Leadbelly or Led Zeppelin.

Well Hung Heart record just as they play live - stripped down to the core, void of multiple takes and studio trickery. Well Hung Heart finished off their first year in existence with high profile shows both sides of the Atlantic. Appearing at London's prestigious O2 Academy, and the Make Music Festival in Pasadena, opening for Grimes, Grouplove and Cults.

Well Hung Heart acknowledge that though their influences might stem from the roots, their approach to finding an audience is very much in the present. With a series of self-directed Youtube videos establishing the band's presence, Well Hung Heart have managed to build a burgeoning fan base, both with their blistering live performances, and their creativity in the digital age.
