If you're a Letters to Cleo fan, you already know who Kay Hanley is, but I run into a lot of people that don't know her music.
They may have seen the film Josie and the Pussycats without realizing the voice behind all the great music was in fact, Kay Hanley.
They may have heard the theme to the kids show Tigger and Pooh, and not realized that Kay Hanley was also the vocalist for that tune.
You may have even taken your kids to see Miley Cyrus and noticed that really awesome blonde on background vocals. Yep, Kay Hanley.
What you may not know is Kay has a new band and a new record. She has teamed up with Linus Dotson to form Palmdale, and they have released their first EP, Get Wasted.
The five songs are pure power pop, highlighted by the great track Here Comes the Summer and my favorite cut, Happiness Has a Half Life. The truth is the entire record rocks and the only problem with it is, the thing is too short!
Let's hope Kay and Linus record more music, because they make a great team.
Check it out on iTunes and download it today. Look for the video for Here Comes the Summer coming soon.
If you aren't following Kay Hanley on Twitter, you should. Trust me and look her up, you won't regret it.
'til Kay comes to Charlotte and brings her guitar. We can dream can't we?
Keep the Adventure alive,
