Intricate compositions with 80's vintage arpeggios, emotive melody and tactile analog warmth.
NOTES
KW | JR is the bicoastal production duo of NYC’s Kolby Wade and LA’s Josh Ricchio. Composing music together for over a decade, the innovative exchange of ideas and sound between them is intuitive and uniquely unified. Their intricate compositions transport the listener with mechanical arpeggios, emotive melody and tactile analog warmth.

Released 2016
Sing Engine Records
Bi-coastal indie-pop songwriting/production team, crafting catchiness through mutual admiration.
NOTES
Sometimes the best discoveries happen by mistake.

Such was the case with indie-pop duo, The Kat & Josh. Brought together by a misunderstanding, singer/songwriter, Kat Quinn, and songwriter/producer, Josh Ricchio, found themselves in a bicoastal co-write, and quickly realized they had stumbled upon something great.

Kat, known for her “perceptive pen” (PopMatters), was fresh off her critically-acclaimed EP, Rust to Gold, and was in search of New York City collaborations for her next project. …

The production/writing duo, Will Phåråoh, write new music for the new music-minded. Blending electronics, vintage synths, live instrumentation and guest vocalists, the pair breath new life into tired sounds.
NOTES
2,786 miles and 11 states separate Josh Ricchio (Freak Owls) and Kolby Wade (Elladora, Ladycop), the two alchemists behind production/composition duo, Will Phåråoh, but the distance only makes their writing process more interesting. The pair have written and toured in multiple projects together over the past decade, and released over a dozen records between them, but Ricchio's recent relocation to sunny L.A. necessitated the long-distance relationship the two now find themselves in.

Nights

by Freak Owls

Released 2015
Sing Engine Records
Influenced by the writing styles of Thom Yorke, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver & Brian Wilson, this is a healthy blend of cascading vocal harmonies & driving beats set against a backdrop of live instrumentation, electronics & atmospheres.
NOTES
Josh Ricchio’s Freak Owls was created in 2010 from an amalgamation of ideas, restlessness, and the desire to lock himself in a room and write after spending the previous 12 years playing and touring in a wide variety of collaborative indie rock bands.

The first two releases ("Taxidermy" and "Orchestrates") pull influences from The Beach Boys, MGMT, Death Cab For Cutie and Yeasayer while textured, over-layering vocal choruses, sparkling acoustics, and Gnarls Barkley-like danceable beats urge …
