K.Flay

at Rickshaw Stop (8pm)
Based in LA and originally from Illinois, multi-platinum artist K.Flay, born Kristine Flaherty, started rapping and writing songs on a lark while attending Stanford University, and soon began releasing her self-produced mixtapes. In 2017 she released her major label debut album Every Where Is Some Where, earning two GRAMMY Award nominations for the album's iconic smash single "Blood in the Cut" and sending her to arenas around the world with her kinetic live set. As a songwriter, musician, and producer, she's lent her talents to numerous collaborations, working with Fitz and the Tantrums, Bishop Briggs, Tom Morello, Louis the Child, Kaskade, Walk the Moon, Imagine Dragons, grandson, The Regrettes, Two Feet, MisterWives, and more. Whether working on her own music or with others, K.Flay's output remains rooted in her undeniable lyrical skills, an element she attributes to her innate love of language and its infinite possibilities. This spring she announced her fifth studio album MONO - due out September 15th. The LP is her first for Giant Music and is her first since going suddenly and completely deaf in her right ear at the end of last summer. Although K.Flay's hearing loss deeply informed her songwriting on MONO, the album marks the start of a new era for the artist who explores an entire spectrum of existential questions and complex matters of the heart and mind on the LP. Additionally, K.Flay wrote an original song "T Rex" for Neflix's groundbreaking new animated film Nimona which was released last month. A relentlessly boundary pushing artist with more than 1 BILLION streams and 100K+ tickets sold, K.Flay continues to commit herself to constant growth by holding herself to higher and more rigorous standards in every aspect of her artistry.

More about K.Flay

Originally from Illinois, K.Flay started rapping andwriting songs on a lark while attendingStanford University, and soon began releasing herself-produced mixtapes. Not long afterthe arrival of Every Where Is Some Where (her major-labeldebut), she took her kinetic liveset to arenas around the world as support for ImagineDragons, in addition to earning herGrammy nominations in the categories of Best RockSong (for "Blood in the Cut") and BestEngineered Album, Non-Classical. Through the years,she's also brought hergenre-bending sensibilities to an eclectic mix ofcollaborations, working with everyonefrom Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to Louis the Childto skate-punk bands like FIDLAR andDune Rats. But despite that deliberate shapeshifting, K.Flay's output remains rooted in herundeniable lyrical skills, an element she attributesto her innate love of language and itsinfinite possibilities.

In the making of her new EP Inside Voices, the two-timeGrammy-nominated artist followedthrough on that newfound confidence by claiming totalfreedom in every aspect of thecreative process. The result: a glorious primal screamin EP form, equal parts exhilaratingand explosive and wildly illuminating.
