Indie rock band These Knees have been writing songs and wooing audiences since the winter of 2010. Originally a solo endeavor by lead-singer and guitarist, Stephanie Trivison, These Knees soon picked up long-time friend and seasoned drummer, Rob Hassing, followed by bassist Bryan Robinson and guitarist Andrew Kuhar. Trivison’s melodic vocals set against the band’s widespread range, come together to create everything from Jimmy Eat World-esque rock to indie pop reminiscent of Rilo Kiley. The Cleveland-based band released their first LP 'The Young and the Bright' in 2013 and released their follow up, 'Night Fires', in November 2015.
These Knees have opened for a long list of celebrated bands including American Authors, Wild Cub, Jenny Owen Youngs, Bad Suns, and Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and have played a number of events and festivals including Fashion Meets Music Festival, Brite Winter, Weapons of Mass Creation, and The New York Songwriter’s Circle.
'Night Fires' will be available through digital distribution November 20th, and physically November 21st.
"...Her band's terrific new album, The Young and the Bright, sounds a bit like Tegan and Sara and features feisty tunes that have a Violent Femmes-like spirit to them."- Jeff Niesel, Music Editor, Scene Magazine
Raves and Reviews:
"I was immediately drawn in by the strength of the songs. Some bands can be great bands but they really only have 1 or 2 hooks that really dig in and get stuck in your head – every song she sang had that kind of infectious melody."
- Justin Markert, Cellar Door
"Trivison's fierce vocals are comparable to Sierra's from VersaEmerge. They're warm and light, youthful and exuberant. Her vocals accent the catchy pop melodies that fill These Knees' debut. Trivison demonstrates a knack for creating hooks that stick; listen to "Pacifica" if you're in need of convincing." - Alyssa Lee of Midwest Action
