Videos by American Songwriter
“Discover,” American Songwriter’s concert series with ReverbNation CONNECT, continues August 9 at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City. Fee Lion, Oh My Love and Overcoats all perform for the seventh installment of the series, which is free for fans who RSVP at DoNYC. Music begins at 7 p.m.
Justina Kairyte, who performs under the name Fee Lion, is more than just a singer-songwriter. Her music encompasses a breadth of layers and instrumentation that gets free of the stigmatization of a label. Kairyte incorporates a variety of instruments to craft sonic wonders that channel the harmonic, dense compositions of art-pop and synth performers who came before her, such as Julia Holter and Holly Herndon. In short, she’s working with more than just a guitar and her lyrics. And Kairyte wouldn’t have it any other way.
Oh My Love
Oh My Love is an Electronic Pop duo out of Madison, WI comprised of Hannah Luree and Christian Lisser. Oh My Love’s sound is driven by powerful vocals, glistening melodies, driving synth, and heavy-hitting, electronic beats.
More than just a band, Overcoats is a friendship, an artistic duo whose songwriting is musical empathy that verges on telepathy. The two have a clear vision of the sound they want to make together – they operate under one creative impulse. Their name comes from the strength they find in making music together. Like an overcoat, Hana and JJ’s music is as much about the armor they create for themselves through their art as it is about the vulnerability beneath.
