CMJ SHOWCASE OCT 20 & NPR WEEKEND EDITION PROFILE AIRING OCT. 27
Piney Gir – the US-born indie pop artist who has found success in London – will return to the States in October for a national tour when her new album 'Geronimo!' is released in the US on Highline Records.
NPR's Weekend Edition is planning a profile on Piney Gir, currently set to air October 27. Growing up in Kansas in a strict Pentacostal household, she was not allowed access to pop culture until adolescence, though she was singing harmonies in the church from a young age.
She will also join the Highline Records / Indie Dark Room CMJ party at Pete's Candy Store October 20, on the bill with Sweet Lights (Kurt Vile), Correatown, Backlights and Leland Sundries.

Baeble Music recently praised 'Geronimo's' "sun-faded retro pop [and] all out go go boots affair," continuing, "After all, if Piney Gir's buzzing electric guitars and relentlessly charming vocals were enough to brighten up the UK, we gotta think they'll be enough to make us Americans cheery."
