McCann Music Showcase with The Aces
McCanners were pleasantly surprised this week with an impromptu performance at our offices featuring The Aces.
Hailing from Utah, The Aces is comprised of sisters Cristal (vocals/guitar) and Alisa Ramirez (drums), along with guitarist Katie Henderson and bassist McKenna Petty. They’ve played together since they were pre-teens, but 2014 turned out to be a critical moment in the band’s history. For all except Alisa, the end of high school was nigh, college was calling, scholarships were in place, and alternate avenues beyond the band started to seem like more viable options. Funnily enough, it was while watching Lorde collect two Grammys that year that inspired the foursome to take stock and recalibrate. In 2016, the band signed a deal with Red Bull Records, and their debut EP I Don’t Like Being Honest launches June 23. Check out the single for their video here: https://youtu.be/vA6sDKKDx9Q?t=14s.
The quartet describes their debut as slinky and anthem-ready, bridging the gap between current acts like The 1975 and MUNA with The Bangles and The Go-Go’s.
