Chandler Reed & The Sticky Keys:
Imagine an endearing piano ballad - but with guitars and too much coffee. They make computers, websites and Powerpoint presentations - But as lifelong musicians, they pour their passions into music.
You’ll hear a blend of original and cover tunes with a piano pop spin. You may hear some Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, or even Hamilton. They draw influences from Jack’s Mannequin, Ben Folds, Weezer, The Classic Crime, Fun., and other pop rock geniuses.
They call themselves an alt-rock band, but let's be honest - their style is wherever the music takes them. Each song has a life of its own, a different story to tell, a different vibe. Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and made up of musicians with a variety of musical backgrounds, they set fire to the lines and limitations of genre labels.
Fronted by dynamic duo (and real-life couple) Matt Plessner and Rachel White, their debut album "Against The Flame" displays lots of what they're best known for: thought-provoking lyrics and tight harmonies, accompanied by a pretty stellar backing band. Adam Parada (also of Melophobix), brings a truckload of talent on the keyboards and bass.
