Von Strantz / Gypsy Moonshine / Among The Compromised / Katie Pederson

This edition of the Grove Haus Sessions celebrates some of the righteous and kick-ass women of Indianapolis music. Jess Von Strantz, Kelsey Von Strantz, Katie Josway, Eleadah Kemp, and Katie Pederson represent a diverse cross section of rock, folk, and singer-songwriter music, and are generally considered to be at the upper echelon of the music scene as solo artists or with their respective bands. Von Strantz, Gypsy Moonshine, and Among The Compromised have appeared on the Radio Hour several times in multiple incarnations. Von Strantz's segment is actually cobbled together from two separate appearances 18 months apart. Gypsy Moonshine was one of the first bands to appear on the show and have been back several times, and this performance was recorded just as a confident Katie Josway and Co. released a breakthrough EP.  ATC's first appearance on the show was also their first ever acoustic set, with a very nervous Eleadah Kemp practically counting the moments until it was over. Katie Pederson writes songs like great chefs cook - her understanding of the chemistry between harmony and melody, major and minor, music and lyrics is masterful. We have only had the honor of hosting her once and it is one of our most cherished recordings. 

The Radio Hour supports our friends WOIA (Women of Indianapolis Arts) and asks you to please patronize their events and artists.

*Live music is a great way to discover new bands, so if you like what you hear, let these artists hear you. Check out their social media and get out and see them.*
