Annie Leeth is a producer and violinist based in Atlanta, Georgia. She left Richmond, Virginia to pursue an undergraduate degree in music at the University of Georgia, and found herself in the world of composition, production, and technology. In 2018, she began working at Chase Park Transduction as a session violinist and producer, as well as at the Georgia Theatre as a monitor engineer. Now working as the house engineer at Maze Studios in Atlanta under Ben Allen, she continues to self-produce her own projects and participates as a session violinist to artists in both Athens and Atlanta.
James Enos studied Ash Grove disseminations of flatpicking out west. He then moved to Athens and quietly joined the community. At the art school he met a rhythm section in scene veterans Ben Reynolds (Chickasaw Mudd Puppies) and Jon Vogt (Wild Abandon). They pulled in guitarist Stephen Ramos (The Unknown) from the design school, then local multi-instrumentalist Hunt Revell, and began translating singer/songwriter work into an ensemble. The music begins where Vogt’s rhythmics meets Enos’s harmonic timbre. It moves out from there. An invitation of sorts.
Klypi is AC Carter, Southern pop artist in Nashville, TN (previous transplant from school in Athens, GA), who performs music that sounds like if Kesha were from the ’80s and if NIN were queer. Touring the east coast in 2018 and 2019, they performed at festivals such as Big Ears, Secret Stages, and Athens Popfest, and opened for artists Molly Nilsson, of Montreal, Algiers, Jennifer Vanilla, Girlpool, and Shitkid. A 2020 University of Georgia MFA Fine Arts Graduate, Klypi has made garments for Jennifer Vanilla’s performance at MoMA PS1, and for the of Montreal music video “Plateau Phase-No Careerism No Corruption”. They design and direct all facets of their visual brand and persona from graphics to fashion. Klypi also previously produced Ad•verse, a musical festival which focuses attention on queer, trans, non-binary, and LGBTQ artists. Klypi is releasing their debut album titled Consensual Hits, with trans artist/producer Precious Child this Spring 2021.
