Simon Joyner is a singer-songwriter from Omaha, Nebraska. He’s been flying under the radar since 1991, releasing music on various independent labels including: Team Love, Jagjaguwar, Sing Eunuchs!, Catsup Plate, One-Hour, Shrimper, Brinkman, Secretly Canadian, and Unread. He is also the co-founder of Grapefruit Records and an occasional producer of other people’s albums.

Jessica Risker is an American musician and visual artist based in Chicago, Illinois.  From 2011 – 2018 Risker performed and released albums under the name Deadbeat.  In 2018, Risker signed with Western Vinyl with the release of the full-length “I See You Among The Stars” and began performing as Jessica Risker.  

Risker’s music fluctuates between electro-psychedelic/experimental albums, instrumental music box lullabies, and psych-folk songs.  From the dream-soaked harmonies of ‘Moon’ to the neopsychedelic/garage rocker ’Won’t You Meet Us In Vegas?’, Risker’s continuous genre shifting is inspired by dual desires to 1) experiment with soundscapes made possible by modern recording techniques, and 2) craft melodies, lyrics, and structures pared down to their most basic elements.
