A daughter of Pacific Northwest DIY, formal music school, the New York scene, and sideman work as a pianist, Puck is the exciting new project from artist-composer Kaley Puckett. Having spent the entirety of her childhood in Seattle and adulthood in New York, Puck’s sound is the truth of her experience. With Joni from her mother, 70s rock from her father, jazz from the piano, and indie rock and hip hop from the places she calls home, these sounds live as the architecture of Puck’s music, some serving as foundation, others breathing into tone and ornamentation. Straight through the center of it all, Puck’s music rises through lyricism as she speaks of her life thus far, creating a fusion of compositions resting mainly at the keyboard, with newer explorations on guitar.
Professionally, Puck may be most familiar as a keyboardist behind other artists, most notably the R&B breakout star SZA, whom she has toured with for five years. Okayplayer premiered Puck’s most recent single, “Good Friends,” featuring producer Space People.
