Nico Son, Riley Parker, Wila Frank
February 28 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm CST
WILA FRANK makes music that’s searching, cinematic, and introspective with scalpel-like precision. Her songs can clear the air, putting to music emotions that are deeply felt but only rarely spoken. With her debut single Fire, the 24-year-old Nashville-based songwriter immediately sets a mesmerizing mood that showcases her evocative lyricism as well as her tasteful ear as a multi-instrumentalist and producer.
RILEY PARKER is a Nashville based indie-rock band. Their beautiful and tender collection of ballads and anthems weave poignant, dreamlike observations on trepidation, self- doubt, and conviction throughout one’s quest for love while discovering one’s identity. Upon the release of Riley Parker’s first single, “Wilted,” NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest featured the band on their blog ‘Entries We Love.’ They wrote that [Wilted] ‘is like a comforting friend there to help soak up a melancholy feeling.” The music presents itself earnestly and untainted by modern irony and hearkens to a more organic and hopeful era in indie-rock music.
NICO SON is an artist who creates sonic landscapes that blend subtle ethereal introspections with searing psychedelic peaks. The songs rise and fall while always maintaining a glimpse of a gentle roar. With a new self-titled LP on the horizon for 2023, Nico Son’s evolution will continue to blossom out of the pursuit for the transcendent.
