Virginia Man Bio:

Who is Virginia Man?Are they your hometown rapper from the beach? Are they a singer/songwriter from the mountains? Arethey the chef of your favorite restaurant in uptown, or your favorite tattoo artist downtown? Truth betold, Virginia Man is anyone. Virginia Man is everyone.This Virginia Man is a 3-piece rock and roll band from Fredericksburg VA that sings lyrics from the bottom of your heart in songs from your fondest memory. Comprised of Kristian Lietzan(vocalist/guitarist), Jack Rutherford (drums),Stephen Amoruso(bass),andJacob Somerio (guitar),theirmusic will make you feel like coffee and cigarettes while reading your favorite author at 7:30 in themorning, reminiscing on the 3 course meal you shared with the love of your life the previous evening,they're the silly geese, you always want a party, and they're good people that make music for goodpeople, and that feels good.

 

Knovo Bio:

"And the sound? Well, it's butter...Each instrument is thoughtfully played, intentional, loose, comfortable and perfectly balanced, with the vocal finessing of Tula Pisano that is agile and strong (think Minnie Riperton and Dakota Staton)." - Nina Goodman, DC Music Review 

 

"Knovo...knocked me out. ... Did I mention how much I dig this sound?" - Corey Brown, No Treble

 

"...DC's new electro soul powerhouse." - Will Urquhart, Urqhart A/V 

 

Knovo is a DC-based sextet that delivers a dreamy blend of indie, jazz, and psych rock, which aims for both the mind and soul. Formed in 2018, Knovo is the brainchild of husband-and-wife duo TJ Turqman (bass) and Gena Photiadis (keys/vocals), and features the unique vocal stylings of Tula Pisano, who deftly weaves intricate melodies that are equal parts evocative and beautiful. Rounding out the lineup are the tasteful and dynamic contributions of guitarist Nikhel Sus and drummer Matt Tredwell. The group’s collective influences yield a sound that is melodic, yet distressed. Retro, yet new. And above all, full of light and energy.

 

Knovo has shared stages with an array of nationally-touring acts, including members of Turkuaz, Thievery Corporation, the Nth Power, Kung Fu, and more.
