Secret Secret
-from San Francisco, CA
-Secret Secret began as a collaboration between four friends who found their voice in the underground San Francisco rock community.
They play genre-bending music that waterfalls from melancholy indie pop to explosive alt-rock. Lead singer Sadie Alan had a treasure
trove of songs from her young adulthood that were rarely played in front of an audience. Her friend Marika Stuurman was determined
to change that and so in 2018 she invited drummer Maria Donjacour and bassist Sasha Konnings to jam with them. They met in Sadieís
basement and got to know each other over beers and music. Since the pandemic, Sasha has parted ways from the band and Thomas
Fendert has stepped in holding down the bass.

Secret Secret released their first EP called HUSH in 2019 and released their first full length, self-titled album on July 24th, 2020.

Secret Secret immortalizes their authentic personality in their debut self-titled album, released on July 24th, 2020. The record spans
multiple genres from mellow indie rock to pop punk and even includes a Russian lullaby. Despite the dynamic range, Secret Secretís
album is unified by powerful lead vocals, Beach Boys style harmonies, and captivating lyrics from beginning to end.

They didnít set out to write about the female experience but when learning to love in a patriarchal society, it's inherently part of the deal.
One song called Bye Bye Baby is ripe with double entendre. On the surface itís a breakup song but when the lyrics are taken literally they
describe the challenging emotions of deciding to get an abortion, ďmaybe if I was older, more stable, then you could be / but for now,
bye bye babyĒ. Another song called Rich Guy is a satirical plot to marry a rich husband only to kill him and reap the life insurance money.
It was born in Mariaís basement during a tipsy rant about how techies suck and quickly grew into a much larger conversation. Rich Guy
is a clear middle finger to cops, toxic masculinity and income disparity.

Secret secret is full of surprises. This release is purely collaborative and you can tell the band is deeply connected to each other. The song
Somewhere to Go started as a slow singer-songwriter ballad until drummer Maria Donjacour suggested speeding it up. The song turned into
a psychedelic tornado that eventually would include a theremin and a disheveled tri-tone outro. These are just a few gems on the 12 song
LP, made with love and with the intention of sharing the bandís collective stories.

Indianna Hale
-from San Francisco, CA
-Indianna Hale is a multi instrumentalist singer songwriter based in San Francisco. "Imagine Cate le Bon baking a sweet-but- not-too-sweet
birthday cake with Calvin Johnson, wearing fuzzy warm sweaters and slippers and sipping home-fermented strawberry wine. This music
sounds like that to me." - Bill Baird
