Katy Rea
Katy Rea
Katy Rea is a Brooklyn based, Texas born musician with a gift for building hook heavy tunes with soulful and poignant lyrics. A kind nod to the beat gen, Patti Smith and all, her soaring vocals and warm, guitar driven melodies have been described as “sweet and prophetic, anarchy soft rock.”
Katy spent her first years in New York waiting tables in the back of a popular anti-folk bar, soaking up satirical sad songs by regulars and drop ins like Regina Spector and Margaret Glaspy. For years keeping her own songwriting a secret, she would act in the occasional play and sing back up for numerous New York bands to get her fill. Eventually, after some open mic wins and disasters, she would find a band that beautifully fit, setting her free as a writer and performer.
Katy Rea’s timeless songwriting and lifted vocals draw comparisons to contemporaries such as Laura Marling, Angel Olsen, Hand Habits, Julia Jacklin, and Stella Donnelly among others. Her debut EP, Same Kind of Woman, is a tribute to the resilient women in her life and their influence on her politics and desires. Out now.

Scout Gillett
Originally from Kansas City, Scout Gillett moved to Brooklyn NY in summer of 2017. She packed up her mom's Kia Rio after her meeting a longtime influence, Sharon Van Etten, who personally encouraged her to take the leap and join the New York music scene. Since then she has formed the band Shadow Year and has toured three nation wide in a short bus gifted to them by a fellow musician and believer. Having organized punk shows in Kansas City, Scout picked up a knack for booking.
She currently curates all shows for her projects, freelances with other bands through her booking company Road Dog Booking and books for a DIY venue in the basement of her Ridgewood home.
Scout met Katy Rea while she was slinging drinks behind a bar. She overheard that Katy was in search for a bassist and the two have been playing together since.
Scout is touring after the release of her first single "Signal, " with Katy Rea this spring. Among her many Influences you'd find Cat Power, Broadcast, Stereo Lab, Sharon Van Etten, Blondie and The Motels.
