I love having such talented friends! Check out the amazing Becky Kessler, the frontwoman of Violent Mae in the band's video for "Man in the Country." (Bonus: It's shot in a cave!) Not surprisingly, Violent Mae is receiving tons of well-deserved critical attention, lots of play on local stations and have already topped many best-of lists. You can stream the haunting, thoughtful sounds of Becky and bandmate Floyd Kellogg here. (My favorites include "Worn Out My Welcome" and "Any Time You Fall".)
Support local music! Support good music!
