ZIGTEBRA is Zebra (Emily Rose) and Tiger (Joseph), half-siblings who met in Chicago at the end of 2010 while performing in the Pure Magical Love dance troop. Immediately drawn to one another, they found themselves on an investigative journey of lineage culminating in the discovery of shared blood. ZIGTEBRA was born as a lifetime adventure to collaborate. Armed with a cassette of collected songs titled The Pink Line, they set off across America on a summer road trip/tour. When they returned to Chicago they locked themselves up at Observatory Studios and recorded new material for their first studio album The Brave released October 2014.
SYNA SO PRO is the SOlo PROject of St Louis’s SYrhea CoNAway, a woman of renaissance potential. Renaissance in the sense of new birth, or birth again, at many levels. Musical renaissance: she was in this great band but the band couldn’t bear the structures borne in her brain, so much more her, so much not band. Syrhea and her band, the solo band that is, SYNA SO PRO, bear us through an emotional rebirth too: each song about discovering who you are and where you need to go after the end. The dead end we all come to every day, every minute, every time we must choose, this birth that brings us closer to ourselves, that’s what she sings about, that’s where she can take you. FURY vocalizes their hardcore misanthropy to start the night out right.
