About RoAn Gibson + Getaway Dogs

RoAn Gibson, as a project, is about building an express train to expression - then riding it. Years of wanting to hear the sounds in his own head, ultimately, lead RoAn to the art of live looping, and a fast-paced engaging set of songs vibrating with polyrhythms and shimmering vocal layers.

Raised in North Carolina, RoAn came to the Bay Area in 2007. Attending college at UC Santa Cruz, the aspiring shredder’s growing love for songwriting shone through in bands such as Neon Satori and The Post Maker. In the years since, RoAn has taken his solo project into full form, playing with numerous other Bay Area bands, including The Soonest, Jerry’s Timeshare,t, Saint Solitude, and With the Dinosaur. With an ambitious plan to release a new song in every month of 2018, RoAn is up and coming artist that you won’t want to miss.

"Dubbed by a friend as "cushy bedroom psychedelic bossanova" Getaway Dogs is the brainchild of Brazilian-Californian songwriter Kai Killion. With influences ranging from Tropicália to psych and indie rock, hip-hop, soul, and jazz, the band began as a solo project but quickly evolved into something of a collective since its conception in 2013. Various musicians of different backgrounds have passed through what Killion refers to as the "revolving door," each lending their experiences to the projects' unique, malleable sound. After two and a half years of hard work, Getaway Dogs released its debut record, Lost In The Ebb in August 2016, drawing significant attention from industry blogs like Magnet Magazine:

"Getaway Dogs inhabit their own starry eyed universe, drifting along to the tropical pulsation of big bossanova guitars, shimmering intergalactic keyboards, somnambulant vocals, whispered percussion and buoyant melodies. With a small coterie of like-minded souls, Killion made a record full of dreamy, late-night psychedelia that spins a calm, soothing spell." (J. Poet, Magnet Magazine)"
