Open Kimono
Open Kimono is singer-songwriter-guitarist Pierre de Gaillande's latest musical project, drawing from his repertoire spanning the last twenty years fronting previous bands Melomane, Sea Foxx, and The Snow. Perfect for lovers of cinematic, well-crafted art-pop with unexpected lyrics and deft songwriting. With Daria Grace on bass, Quentin Jennings on keyboards, Brad Stewart on trumpet, Jeff Schaeffer on drums, Hilary Downes on piano horn and vocals, and special guest drummer and Kenny Savelson.
LAPêCHE is a four-piece born out of Brooklyn New York. Fronted by singer-songwriter, Krista Holly Diem, the band boasts a sound inspired by their indie roots, delivering a dark, catchy rock that’s simultaneously somber and uplifting.

Intense and lovely, Diem’s writing draws inspiration from both past and present, touching on themes light and dark. Collaboratively, with her husband and bassist, Dave Diem, LAPêCHE also includes the intricate and thoughtful guitar slaying of Drew DeMaio as well as the creative rhythm of Jefferson Gensterblum. The band combines perfectly to guide Krista’s provocative melodies over their uniquely driving hooks.

LAPêCHE’s debut full length, The Second Arrow, was recorded and produced by the legendary J. Robbins (Jets To Brazil, Clutch, Quicksand, Ponytail) at Magpie Cage in Baltimore. The new record dives deeper, darker and hits harder than their previous EP Bright and Bending, while still driving that 90’s fuzz. Grit-laced with melancholy hopefulness, The Second Arrow will be released September 8th on Bakery Outlet Records.
