Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith's formative years were spent communing with nature on Orcas Island in the northwest region of Washington state, a place she describes as "one of the most magical and peaceful places I have ever been." Though she wouldn't begin experimenting with modular synthesis for years, her creative work is infused with and inspired by the vitality and serenity of Orcas.

What began as a curious excursion soon became a fully forged path. 2015 saw the release of Smith’s full-length, Euclid, a playful and wide-eyed album that spurred from her experiments in writing music for geometric shapes while at the San Francisco Conservatory. A clear step forward from the nebulousness of her previous output, Euclid drew acclaim from all reaches of the experimental music world and cleared a path for Smith’s successive longform work under her birth name. Little more than a year later Smith returned with her wonderstruck psychedelic breakthrough EARS to universal praise in the spring of 2016.

Maria Usbeck

Growing up in Ecuador, Maria Usbeck was immersed in salsa, merengue, bachata and Andean music, but was more attracted to German and American culture than her own, eventually moving to America at 17 to attend to art school. After five years of fronting new wave outfit Selebrities and writing songs in English, she knew it was time to let the mother tongue speak. That impulse manifested itself directly in her debut solo album, Amparo, which reads like an exotic travel diary - music made by a perceptive explorer to tap into the shared core of human expression.
