Welcome to “The SetList”
The SetList is a music podcast hosted by Forth District’s A&R, Adan Bean, and features artists from every part of the musical landscape. The SetList seeks to reveal an artist’s interests, influences, and background in music like no other interview has done before.
On This Episode: St. Beauty
On this episode of The SetList, Adán had the opportunity to sit down with Alex Belle and Isis Valentino, better known as the luminous duo St. Beauty. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, these two gifted singer/songwriter/musicians are members of the Wondaland Arts Society and inaugural artists on Wondaland Records (joint venture partnership with Epic Records). Founded by Janelle Monáe and home to rising “Classic Man” star Jidenna, Wondaland Records has been making seismic waves across the country as they just finished up their nationwide tour promoting the recently released Eephus EP. Get to know the lovely ladies of St. Beauty much better in this in-depth conversation. Enjoy this special episode of the SetList.
“Featuring Alex Belle and Isis Valentino, the enchanting sound of St. Beauty feels timeless. Thoughtful musicians and songwriters, they weave together melodies that are impossible to forget and evocative lyrics that paint richly textured emotional stories, casting a spell over the listener that cannot be broken.” ~EpicRecords.com
