    ABOUT THE FEY:
    SHORT BIO
    Currently signed The Record Machine (Kansas City), The Fey (formerly AZP) is dominantly a new age indie rock-soul band. This sextet boasts a versatile sound. The vibe has been compared to a mix of Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, and NERD, with presentation and lyrics of real-life narrative and meaningful messages.

    Also expressed, a touch of modern day hip-hop & pop. The group stretches each genres "limitations" by re-creating a very pleasing interaction within popular music. It's your classic fuzz guitar tones, whirling organs, deeply warm bass guitar, & heartfelt vocals, slightly molded with the cool, energetic vibrations of indie art culture.

    LONG BIO:
    From his baptist church gospel upbringing to studying jazz percussion at Berklee College of Music, Zach Watkins incorporates a wide range of influences when it comes to writing & producing music. Such influences & musical excursions helped construct the bluesy rock-soul band & the artistic value within. Watkins, being the passionate soul singing, multi-genre instrumentalist that he is, accompanied by the clever, conscious-minded lyricism of Valenti, gave flight to a homegrown style & sound like no other. Years later, Zach would find four music connoisseurs to create The Fey family & help take the sound to a higher plateau.

    Dominantly a new age American rock-soul-r&b band, The Fey, also expresses a touch of the contemporary vibes of hip-hop & pop. The sextet stretches each genres "limitations" by re-creating a very pleasing interaction within popular music. It's your classic fuzz guitar tones, whirling organs, deeply warm bass guitar, & heartfelt vocals, slightly molded with the cool, energetic vibrations of indie culture. It's the love for a transparent artists mind & journal, singing songs of real life events, dreams, & nightmares in each record. It's music for the everyday; a live concert you do not want to miss. So much energy, passion, & emotion is presented in every set, & every stage, no matter the venue.

    The Fey holds true value to the home-grown roots in which they are from. Young prideful men, "city cowboys", "weary-hearted rebels" as some have labeled. Straight out of the nation's Heartland: Lincoln, Nebraska. But don't let being from the small city mistake them for small-minded. The two time OEAA nominee became one of the states most respected units due to their passionate motions on social, cultural, & racial issues, all the while proudly advocating peace. That's what it's all about with The Fey: unifying people of all colors, all sexes, all cultures, beliefs, & allowing good soulful music be the bind between differences. Credited as inspiring & woke, The Fey is known for their powerful visuals & short films for their music. Created in-house, The Fey (AZP at the time) was recently awarded The White Light City Film Festival's 2016's Best Music Video & the Stacy Heatherly Award for the Early Sunday Morning single, "Charge".

    With a recently announced recording deal with Kansas City based indie label, The Record Machine, three nationally licensed EP's under their belts, over 10 SXSW showcases performed at the biggest indie festival of the U.S., three plus years of touring & growing a movement throughout the U.S., & much more, The Fey continues to create & perform their art for like minded music lovers.
