RADDA RADDA is a fresh Rock/Pop/Americana group from Minneapolis, MN, USA. The band’s many years of nonstop writing, touring and musical experimentation with scores of previous, separate projects ultimately brought them together in the spring of 2017. While the group deliberately kept a low profile in its early days (complete with a peculiar, cryptic social media presence), RADDA RADDA has worked rigorously and surreptitiously writing, recording, and refining their sonic efforts into a rock/Americana confessional of sorts. Their music spans a bridge between heartbreak and “hell-why-not,” built from howls at the moon, heartfelt lyrics and walls of dirty telecaster twang, all the while maintaining an unmistakable pop sensibility that succeeds in fighting shy of the predictable. Their debut album is to be released June 8, 2018 at The Hook and Ladder TheaterJillian Rae
Jillian Rae is a multi-talented violinist, lead vocalist, and songwriter whose creative and dynamic style of violin playing, along with her lifelong experience as a performer, lend her an assured stage presence. She has an innate ability to create hook-laden tunes affirming the positives of life in the face of struggle and disappointment.Savannah Smith
A series of YouTube videos, each one more precious than the last, paint Minneapolis’ Savannah Smith as a ukulele-slinging Jack Johnson disciple—particularly in an adorable take on “Bitter Heart” by Zee Avi (who’s on Johnson’s Brushfire Records), aided by some smirking, unofficial sign language from her roommate. But the seriousness Smith shows when performing her own songs, like the punchy “Ventriloquism,” nicely balances her jazz-informed cooing and displays a talent for lyrical density that raises her simple melodies.
