About our Headliners!

L.A. Witch’s self-titled debut album unfurled like hazy memories of late night revelries in the city center creeping back in on a hungover Sunday morning. Guitarist/vocalist Sade Sanchez purred and crooned over jangling guitar chords, painting pictures of urban exploits, old American haunts, and private escapades with a master’s austerity. Bassist Irita Pai and drummer Ellie English polished the patina of the band’s vintage sound, adding a full-bodied thump and intoxicating swing to the album’s dusty ballads, ominous invitations, and sultry rock songs.

The album had an air of effortlessness, like these songs were written into the fabric of the Western landscape by some past generation and conjured into our modern world by three powerful conduits. The band readily admits that L.A. Witch was a casual affair and that the songs came together over the course of several years. That natural flow hit a snag when the band’s popularity grew and they began touring regularly, so a new strategy became necessary for their sophomore album, the swaggering and beguiling Play With Fire.

TREMOURS During 2020 Lauren Andino began posting snippets of guitar and Moog compositions online as a pandemic sound journal. Glenn Fryatt saw these and wondered if Lauren wanted to add drums. She did. In August 2021 TREMOURS released ‘Downtown Demos’, a three-song EP of demo recordings .In 2022 TREMOURS completed two North American tours and released their debut EP, ‘Affectations’, on Little Cloud Records.
