Description

Hail! Cassius Neptune fuses art rock with jazz and R&B. Fronted by Kylie Jo and Wilson Stern of Gainesville, Florida, the band now operates out of Asheville, NC. H!CN is gearing up for a twelve-day tour of NC, TN, GA, VA, and KY in February. The band will showcase songs from their two EP’s as well as new, unreleased material. The band has been compared to acts across the gamut from The Mars Volta and Primus to Thundercat and Erykah Badu. A wide bass of influences including Herbie Hancock, Frank Zappa, D'Angelo, and St. Vincent make H!CN dance music for the body and the mind. Kylie Jo Stern's vocals bring together Lauryn Hill's sense of soul with Fiona Apple's sense of humor. “Check out my student's awesome band Hail! Cassius Neptune. Some really awesome proggy stuff going on here, with counterintuitive riffs, odd times, awesome vocals and guitar and bass work! Enjoy!” -John Ferrara, Consider the Source Hail! Cassius Neptune has performed with: Beats Antique, Dubconscious, Papadosio, Little Tybee, the Mantras, Consider the Source, ComeBack Alice, and Flat Land. H!CN has preformed at: Purple Hatters Ball, Barn Burner Fest, Snaggy Mountain Music Festival, Forever Summer. “I think it's f*^kin brilliant and I CANT GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD I'm catching myself humming this at work and sh*t. Well done Wilson and Kylie Jo!” -Daniel Kinney, the Duppies (about H!CN’s cover of Muddy Waters’ “Long Distance Call”) “Really digging how this stuff sounds with all the vocal melodies... also hearing ‘Guitar Wilson Stern’ playing with ‘Bass Wilson Stern’ is enjoyable as hell.” -Brian Johnson, Locochino (about H!CN’s sophomore EP, “Where is that Cat?”) more H!CN: www.hailcassiusneptune.com Twitter @HCNeptune Instagram @hailcassiusneptune Facebook @ Hail Cassius Neptune
