After the impressive success of her previous band Houndmouth, Katie Toupin’s career as a solo artist is beaming. Co-writer and key performer on #1 song, “Sedona” with over 100,000,000 streams on Spotify, Katie Toupin is proving she has only just begun. “Freed from the gingham-checked restraints of Houndmouth, Toupin displays more range and greater depth on her solo debut, Magnetic Moves” – Paste Magazine. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Katie ventured to Austin, Texas to create an eclectic, yet cohesive record. “Magnetic Moves” (written, arranged, and produced by Katie Toupin) is a mixture of throwback odes and modern sonics brought to life by the thoughtful arrangements of multi-instrumentalist Scott Davis (Hayes Carl, Band of Heathens). George Harrison-esk rifs never feel out of place over the tastefully placed synthesizers on songs like “Real Love” and “Back In Time”. Angela Miller and Lauren Marie (Black Pumas) offer soulful backup parts on album highlight, “Someone To you” as well as “Lost Sometimes” and “In Your Dreams”. The title track, “Magnetic Moves” received extensive radio play across the United States. Katie brings the album to life with vivacious and interactive live performances.American Songwriter said, “based on this evidence, (Toupin) is clearly ready for her shot in the Spotlight”.
Opening up for Katie, is another a band featuring another premier female vocalist. Villa-Mure is a musically intertwined, rock’n’roll, husband/wife songwriting team from Louisville, KY. Joining us in our musical adventures is percussion wizard, Jordan Hubbard. Rooted just as much in 70’s progressive rock as modern alternative and cultivated by the eclectic Louisville music scene, Villa Mure’s music is anchored on the chemistry of textural, flowing guitar work and driving, melodic bass. Live, the band creates an atmosphere that recalls the psychedelic, but presents itself in the simplicity of the tried and true rock n’ roll power trio, with grooving instrumentals intertwined with lyrics intended to speak from your own inner voice.
