The three-person band from Los Angeles took root in 2012 when frontwoman songwriter/guitarist Clementine Creevy began making bedroom demos of shoegazey, lo-fi dream pop. Since then, the band has become one of L.A.'s most exciting rising bands, best known for their bare bones style and precise, honest lyrics.
Inspired by son jarocho, soul, dancehall, and hip hop, Maya Jupiter brings her lively stage performance to KCET's "Studio A." Her music fuses traditional Mexican folk and urban contemporary hip hop with socially conscious lyrics that you can nod your head to.
Once the frontman for Brazil’s popular rock group Los Hermanos, troubadour Rodrigo Amarante performs a stripped-down, solo set of his ballads on Studio A. When Amarante relocated to Los Angeles, he started the indie rock act Little Joy with the Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti, but his recent debut solo record reveals pensive and heartfelt songs inflected with subtle bossa nova vibes.
