AbouT CITY SILOS
CITY SILOS is a Two-Piece Blues Rock Band based out of Memphis, TN and comprised of Kristen and Chris Butler. Formerly known as the band Magnolia Wind, City Silos started their music adventures in Nashville, TN. Kristen and Chris had their own separate music careers while living in Nashville when they met and before joining together to create what you now know as City Silos. Both being accomplished writers and performers, touring the US, and receiving awards such as Mississippi Artist of the Year and Song of the Year in 2016, music is in their souls. They have performed all across the United States from South Carolina, to Michigan, all the way to Los Angeles, CA.
When you think of a two-piece rock band you may imagine The Black Keys, or The White Stripes, but City Silos has something a little extra than expected… The best description given to-date about City Silos is “a two-person trio that will rock your face off!” Kristen is lead vocals and plays the bass guitar, while Chris plays a 5-piece foot drum kit and electric guitar at the same time. Their sound is equal parts rock, blues, with pop undertones. Their music will definitely get you on your feet feeling the groove. You’ll hear fuzzy guitars, blues riffs, melodic hooks that will catch your ear, and lyrical content of a singer-songwriter that really draws you in. Their live performance is equally impressive, having gained notoriety while performing for the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) in both Anaheim, CA and Nashville, TN, and gaining an online fan base with over 280,000 views on YouTube.
City Silos’ self-titled debut album is set to release Summer 2019.
