Recently nominated for the German Music Critics Award, Brennet has self-released an astonishing 14 albums since her debut in 2002. An artist whose music has evolved along with their gender into something sophisticated, powerful, and moving that defies categorization.
The next Album Release Party is scheduled for Sunday 10/25 at 8pm EST/7pm CST.
Winter Grain (6:30pm-7:15pm) – Married in 2017, Kate and Secily Anderson make up the heart of Winter Grain. Multi-Grammy Award-winner Ryan Hadlock (Brandi Carlile, Gossip, Foo Fighters) of Bear Creek Studio, Seattle, is the producer of Winter Grain’s debut self-titled EP as well as a new set of singles that will be released by end of 2020. Originating from Utah, Winter Grain now calls Los Angeles home.
On their latest album, they were able to work with Adam Neely, Elliott Klein, Dune Butler, Taylor Carroll, and of course, Ryan Hadlock. With influences from Fleetwood Mac to Tears For Fears, Winter Grain is a pop-folk band that values song-craft, dynamics, and vocal harmonies.
Kate is an active helicopter pilot in the Army while Secily is a music teacher.
You can hear the laments of a near-Catholic nun (Kate) in some verses. Or the struggles of dating someone from a different culture (“Pages”). And in songs like “Solitary Trees” Secily’s piano education at Cleveland Institute of Music is highlighted.
The newest set of songs sees Winter Grain going more electric, more 90’s, and grittier than any of their releases to date. With a deployment coming up, this Queer Women in Music may very well be Winter Grain’s last live gig for quite some time. Find out more at www.wintergrain.com
