People Get Ready
People Get Ready Brooklyn-based four-piece People Get Ready is Steven Reker, Luke Fasano, James Rickman, and Jen Goma. They come from all over the musical map--Reker toured as a dancer and guitarist with David Byrne and Fasano is a former member of Yeasayer. PGR got their start in December 2009 during a run of shows at one of NY's more influential art houses, The Kitchen. The band's distinct brand of vivid electronic pop bursts with energy, propelled by swirling and swelling harmonies, hard-to-shake melodies, ornate guitar work and high-energy rhythms set to a vocal ebb and flow led by Reker but harmonized and intensified by the entire band. Their self-titled debut album was recorded by emerging composer/performer/producer Jherek Bischoff in the summer of 2011 at Denniston Hill, a 100+ year old farm house in upstate New York. Bischoff trucked two suitcases of gear to this remote location and recorded them across four rooms of the house while wrangling the spaces incredible acoustic properties.
