Her Crooked Heart
Her Crooked Heart
HER CROOKED HEART is the new name; the new music of Rachel Ries – multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, hired gun, singer. Her Crooked Heart’s first release, To Gentlemen (CD & 7” vinyl EP), hits the ground spinning May 5, complete with Rachel’s own limited edition artwork and featuring members of Bon Iver & Field Report.

Along with numerous and diverse collaborators through the years, Rachel has proven herself ever-curious to expand her sound, her scope, and sail on past the confines of ‘singer-songwriter.’ After all, sometimes what the heart wants is a syncopated horn line and a string section; a choir of angels and a bass synth, leaving devastation in their wake.

But one thing has remained true since RR’s first homespun release: her sly and compassionate voice, excavating the depths of an all-too-human heart, armed with levity and a pen. It’s the messy humanity that’s of interest here. The trying and failing; the loving and losing and loving again. The choosing to be brave even when you’re shaking in your tattered boots. So please, make welcome: Her Crooked Heart. She’s been here all along.

J.E. Sunde
J.E. Sunde is the solo project of Jonathan Sunde. Before striking out on his own, Jon spent years making beautifully unusual music with The Daredevil Christopher Wright. In July, 2014 he released his first solo album, Shapes That Kiss The Lips Of God, with Cartouche Records out of Davenport, IA. On March, 3rd 2017 he released is his sophomore record Now I Feel Adored. Featuring vocals by Monica Martin of Phox, the album is described as “an exercise in careful subtraction....it takes some time to notice how little is going on with the richness of what is heard.”
Rachele Eve
Rachele Eve
RACHELE EVE is a fifth-generation Italian American from Detroit, Michigan-- a storyteller and an incurable romantic. The daughter of an opera singer and fine artist, her passion for singing began at a young age. During her highly creative and informative years in Chicago, emerged the desert-rock songstress’ style of confessional and emotionally rich compositions. Eve uprooted from Chicago to explore a path of simple living on a remote island in the Pacific. This deeply spiritual and introspective journey invokes Rachele Eve’s forthcoming album, Renunciation, a window into the disintegration and healing of the heart space, due out on July 4th. Pre-orders available at racheleeve.net.

Rachele Eve was named Chicago's Top Local Artist on 93.1WXRT, featured on Daytrotter, and was the first female-fronted outfit to be featured on Audiotree. She has shared stages with songwriters Cass McCombs and Ezra Furman with headlining performances at The Hideout, Schubas, Evanston SPACE, and Lincoln Hall. She has recorded with Chicago favorites, Matthew Santos and Cameron McGill, and spent many years in the city's neo-folk community coordinating events and collaborating with songwriters and performing artists.
