Moon Honey
Moon Honey
It wouldn’t be surprising to find Moon Honey’s Jess Joy [vocals] and Andrew Martin [guitar]
adorning the cards of a Tarot Deck. A wild red-headed musical enchantress and multi-faceted
artist from the bayou of Baton Rouge, Jess’ je ne sais quoi extends beyond her primal vocal
conjurings to handmade mysticism—from personally directing D.I.Y. stop-motion music videos
and assembling surreal collages to building paper mache stage production and sewing period-
correct costume pieces. Born in the Big Easy and raised on the Cayman Islands as an
anachronistic disciple of Jimi Hendrix and Mark Bolan, Andrew speaks through six-strings often
while decked out in mod velvet threads. The union of these two dissonantly kindred spirits
yields a totemic pastiche of psychedelia, rock, soul, performance art and good old-fashioned
voodoo.
While on tour in 2013 (a month after becoming Moon Honey), the duo released their
independent debut Hand-Painted Dream Photographs. It quietly sent shockwaves throughout
the underground, bubbling up with praise courtesy of The New York Times, Noisey, NPR and
more. Logging countless gigs including a fiery SXSW showcase, the West Coast called to Jess and
Andrew. They settled in an Echo Park treehouse before finding a haunt nestled in the Silverlake
hills. Immersed in the city’s arts scene, this aural universe unfolds further by their singular
touch. Moon Honey will be releasing their second full-length album, Mixed Media On Woman in
2018.
Kera & The Lesbians
Veronica Bianqui
Veronica Bianqui
Vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Veronica Bianqui integrates the raw energy of garage rock with the passion of classic soul and R&B, and the pop sensibilities of 60s girl groups while maintaining an intense yet playful edge. Perhaps it’s her background in musical theatre, jazz, classical, and even Indian classical music, or her mother’s propensity for blasting The Beatles and Joe Cocker around the house, but Bianqui’s tastes and influences cross a wide spectrum of sounds. In her live show, Bianqui and her band consisting of up to 10 members—reminiscent sometimes of a revue– combine classic showmanship with a heartfelt directness that keeps the music intimate.

Before breaking out with her solo material, Bianqui made a name for herself in the LA circuit, performing in bands that toured across the U.S. and Europe. As a current member of 1960’s inspired folk/surf/psych rock outfit The Blank Tapes, she balances the two bands, often collaborating with bandmate and co-producer Matt Adams, including on her debut album that is yet to be released.
