Next Friday, February 9th, The Hi-Fi is bringing two touring Detroit artists to their stage that you may recognize. One is Flint Eastwood, the red-cap wearing Jax Anderson. The second is the producer and songwriter Nydge.
Flint Eastwood is a pop artist from Detroit who is currently signed on with Neon Gold Records. Last year, Flint Eastwood released her debut EP “Broke Royalty”, and along with it her debut single, “Queen”. Her Facebook profile quotes Eastwood as saying “Queen was written about the first time I was asked what it was like being a woman in music… I have always set the standard with my team that I am the boss, regardless of my gender identity.”
Flint Eastwood’s tour will take her from New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Nashville to Indianapolis before moving on to Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and more.
Eastwood’s music is typically features upbeat, heavy drum tracks along with pulsing synths and reverb-laced vocals. In every song, Eastwood’s impressive vocals sweep over the electronic soundscape. Some songs, like “Rewind” are infused with a heavy funk groove and an erratic beat. Flint Eastwood’s creativity is undeniable in “Broke Royalty”, and she’s pushing the genre of pop in some interesting directions.
