Emerging from the Pacific Northwest, over the past decade Jenny Don’t and the Spurs have built a reputation as hardworking and musically-driven stalwarts of the Country Western scene. Despite facing challenges like Jenny's vocal surgery in 2019 and the loss of drummer Sam Henry to cancer in 2022, they've remained resilient and fully committed to their musical journey.

With a fierce DIY ethos, they've independently released the majority of their 13 albums and singles on their own label, cultivating a vast international following through extensive tours across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and performances in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Mexico. In 2021, Jenny Don’t and the Spurs garnered attention with their album Fire On The Ridge, a collaboration with Fluff and Gravy records that topped the Alt Country charts. Their achievements included receiving the coveted "2023 Outlaw Group" award at Dale Watson's Ameripolitan Award Ceremony in Memphis, Tennessee.

Jenny Don’t and the Spurs remain committed to pursuing their passion with their upcoming release Broken Hearted Blue, slated to debut on June 14th, 2024, via Fluff and Gravy records.

Leah Senior is an amazing folk singer, very, very talented, and nothing like King Gizz's music at all. Her songs are equally terrifying, joyous, sad and exciting. We get chills watching her perform.
– King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

Enchanting..Recalling Joni Mitchell playfulness through cosy folk, minimalism
– Rolling Stone

Australian folk diviner Leah Senior silences audiences with vivid lyricism and a voice that soars with a disarmingly honest Sandy Denny-like clarity. Quietly revered as a master songwriter, she effortlessly weaves together spring-time baroque pop playfulness with a fragile blend of 60’s bedroom folk.

A chance late night encounter with King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard saw Leah Senior joining their independent label Flightless to release her first three albums. She has since collaborated with the band multiple times, featuring as the omnipresent narrator on their album Murder Of The Universe as well as joining members to re-imagine the score of cult classic "Suspiria".

Her captivating live performances have seen her perform extensively throughout Australia and Europe opening for the likes of Jessica Pratt, Bedouine, Jeff Tweedy and Juliana Barwick.

Kairos Creature Club is a collection of songwriters and collaborators brought together by Lena Simon (La Luz) and Glenn Michael Van Dyke (BOYTOY). Their first EP Join the Club, out now on Greenway Records, is a collection of seven songs recorded during the pandemic at Simon and Van Dyke's home studio in Jacksonville, Florida. While not wholly a concept album, their debut project's tongue-in-cheek branding as an exclusive organization that requires membership, is a nod to a few of the record's binding thematic threads - the confluence of religion, multi-level marketing and multi-level marketing as a feature of late stage capitalism. But the irony of music as a commodity is not lost on the group. Their self-aware approach to self promotion amidst a beautiful and tragic world is still unfolding, as is their identity. Join the Club features songs and parts by Matt Shaw (The Mother Gooses), James Scott Rubia (Animal Clinic), Sarah Palin (One Sentence Supervisor) and Lucas Harwood (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard).
