Rosethedrummer, who you know as front-woman for FNF, has started a new project of original music of hers and local guitarist/siren Kyndra Heischmann, for occasions such as this when high-in-demand FNF band members can’t make a show This is the first official incarnation of this project. If you like FNF, you’ll love to hear the slightly different arrangements of Rose’s songs as interpreted by the self-taught and harmonically dense guitar stylings of Kyndra Heishmann, who’s songs are lovely and forlorn, wild and calming, simple to sensational, and so much more. Come hear this match-up of songstresses in a 4 piece collaboration featuring Ben Fox on bass and special guest keyboardist TBA.
