The legendary Barry Conley sheds his Alien skin to head up this duo of dynamic dimension. Armed with his famed OutofControl-atron he, first, pulls the sound up from out of the dark pit of the Earth to greet the air with a friendly “Hello!”. Then he whips it into action with both wit and whimsey while his cohort carefully concentrates on calibrating the conjunction of his Jitterbug and Juice Boxes. And then, they’re off: Speeding through space on a fast swirling sound at one moment, then drifting dead-like through the dark depth of the ocean at another, capturing the cacophony of a crowd in a cafeteria, or the slow crushing collision of two creeping icebergs. Flutters. Bleeps. Thumps. Crackles. Whirls. Whines and Whistles. Hisses. Groans and Moans. Sounds that come out of doors that you didn’t even think were there to tickle your ears as well as your bowels.
They use an unrelenting pulse for piercing, then penetrate with the delicate dancing drone of a single modulating tone, then proceed to permeate the collected consciousness with the colorful and confused cadence of a Sci Fi caliope.
Their name is a ‘tip of the hat’ to the grandfather of the tongue-tickled adventure. And their hats are horrendously hip. So take a trip. You’ll find something. But don’t be surprised if that something finds you first.

He’s from West Virginia. She’s from California. They fell in love, music is the byproduct. Xander Hitzig’s rich instrumental mastery and lyricism meets Nicole Olney’s powerful songwriting and sweet strumming in perfect harmony with their brand new duet project called St. John’s Dance. Their songs pay refreshing homage to country-folk heroes of the past and present while formulating an entirely new sound of their own. They highlight what is grounded and true in music from both sides of the American continent resulting in a tasty cocktail of blended genre reckoning the likes of many such as The Carter Family, Woodie Guthrie, Mandolin Orange, And Townes Van Zandt.
St. John’s Dance formed in Los Angeles officially within the last year and is about to release their first EP in the spring.

An Ohio native and LA transplant, Markie Erin is a multi-instrumentalist with an emphasis on vocals, keys, and guitar.
Drawing inspiration from emotive indie songwriters like Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers, Markie’s music is an open exploration of self-identity. Her emphasis on expressive lyrics draws you into her world, residual traumas and all.
As a solo act, Markie uses repetitive guitar motifs to underlay her feelings. Her repertoire of composed work includes myriad intimate acoustic recordings, and a series of singles, precursors to an album, heavily reliant on ambient guitar and intentional piano melodies. She’s focused on the release of her first album, Eternities, in the coming months, in addition to playing locally in Los Angeles.
