You may not expect one of the most compelling new voices in hip hop to wield dual psychology and sociology degrees from Stanford University or find inspiration in the buttoned-up world of indie rock, but for K.Flay, defying expectations is simply part of the game.

On stage, K.Flay is a one-woman whirlwind: whether she's creating beats, singing, rapping and playing guitar, her wit and acerbic charm shine through. Her talents have led her to share the stage with a wide array of artists including spending 2010 on the road with Passion Pit (Campus Consciousness Tour), 3oh!3 (Streets of Gold Tour), and various dates with Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Travie McCoy and more, where she quickly won over audiences who hadn't seen anything quite like her before. Further setting her apart from the pack, she serves as her own producer in the studio, methodically infusing her hip hop swagger with a dose of sonic exploration.

Kristine Flaherty grew up outside of Chicago, devouring her father's classic rock records and staying up late to dance to Parliament-Funkadelic in the living room. It was this same musical open-mindedness that would later spark her artistic development. She found her musical voice in college, fusing the eclectic power of the Bay Area hip hop scene with her own unique presence, inspired by strong, independent female artists ranging from Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill to Fiona Apple and Liz Phair.

K.Flay's debut self-released EP dropped on October 12, 2010 and has been receiving rave reviews nationwide. Also released are two mixtapes available for free on her website: 'Mashed Potatoes' (2009) and 'I Stopped Caring in '96' (2011).
The Peach Kings
The Peach Kings
Wandering royalties, Paige Wood and Steven Trezevant, crossed paths early in the year MMX. San Francisco held the rendezvous and harbored the early stages of the Peach diocracy as the Two quickly stormed the boundaries of genres. From the tatters of this crusade arose a hybrid class of music: Gypsydelic. Organic in texture and taste, The Peach Kings draw their sound and inspiration from the smoky smooth crackle of blues, folk, and soul vinyls as well as the hypodermic tones synthesized in various beat laboratories across the globe.

Stripped down, The Peach Kings power is derived from Paige Wood's hauntingly sensual vocals combined with Steven Trezevant's raw guitar majesty. Anything else is just jam on the pancakes; an edible blues concoction.
