Los Angeles-based Conway Joins The Fratellis on Select Dates

Sony Columbia Records - 10/23/2013

NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 

"[Conway] unleashed an enthralling performance, showcasing the energy and passion captured in her self-made 'Big Talk' video."
-Rolling Stone

"The ['Big Talk'] EP offers up a healthy dose of Conway's electro-charged attitude in a seductive, lyrically smart package."
-Buzzbands.LA

Los Angeles-based Conway has announced a series of west coast dates supporting The Fratellis. Kicking off November 7 at San Francisco's Rickshaw Stop, the trek also includes dates at Portland's Wonder Ballroom, The Crocodile in Seattle, and a final hometown show at Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre on November 12.

Conway's strongly energized live performances continue to impress audiences around Los Angeles.  Radio station Alt 98.7 FM has consistently supported the artist on their local weekly show, "Close To Home," and has invited her to co-host this coming week. Conway will join NONONO at The Echo this Thursday, October 24 in addition to playing School Night! at Bardot on Monday, October 28.

Just last week, Conway performed multiple sets at New York City's CMJ Music Marathon, including a sold-out show alongside Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Cults, and Lucius at Brooklyn Bowl. Rolling Stone named Conway one of their "10 Best Discoveries" at CMJ, raving that she "unleashed an enthralling performance, showcasing the energy and passion captured in her self-made 'Big Talk' video. ...Like the best kind of showcases, it left you wanting more." See below for all upcoming dates.

Conway released her debut EP titled Big Talk less than one month ago. Her breakout song "Big Talk" takes the humor and sarcasm pioneered by bands like Weezer and the spoken-word gymnastics of David Byrne and sets them to a trashy, grinding beat. The self-directed/produced/edited video which Conway created entirely on her MacBook has been viewed nearly 400,000 times and can be seen here. Another fast growing favorite "Hustler" is not to be missed, that is unless you prefer "Killer," which more than lives up to its moniker. Listen to the Big Talk EP here.
