“I wrote it the night before our set at Midwest Music Fest and surprised by band by throwing it on the setlist when they had never heard it before. I told them it was in the key of “D” and to basically just follow me, and it was spectacular. The crowd loved it, and there’s was this amazing spur-of-the-moment magic in the air. So the next day, without thinking about it too long, I booked studio time and we went in and laid it down with very little preparation in the same impromptu spirit of that show. Now I’d love to put it out into the world as an out-of-the-blue summer single.”
Catch the band live on Thursday June 9th, at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis with Jonathan Rundman, The Lowland Lakers, and Andy Cook, presented by the Minnesota Music Coalition.

After building a devoted online following as a solo artist, Reina del Cid teamed up with talented musicians Toni Lindgren, Zach Schmidt, and Andrew Foreman to develop a sophisticated sound with broad appeal, drawing in mixed crowds from jamheads to college students to white haired intelligentsia.

Reina del Cid and her band cut their teeth in 2013 with a weekly residency at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall in downtown St. Paul, which they held for nearly two years before moving on to tour nationally and release their 2015 album, The Cooling. In January, Del Cid released a music video for the song “Death Cap,” filmed in Iceland and directed by the band’s longtime creative collaborator, Jason Ho. Their music has recently been featured by Paste Magazine, NPR, and Baeble Music, and they plan to release their next full-length record in 2017. For more information, follow Reina del Cid on Facebook.
