PROM QUEEN: After the debut release of Night Sound in 2012, Prom Queen went from a solo project to a full-fedged band: with Ben Von Wildenhaus, Tom Meyers and Jason Goessl joining the fold. The band took on a life ofit's own onstage: using Leeni's writing to infuse a moody, electrifying showcase of the musicianship of each member.Prom Queen's second album release, Midnight Veil, was a multimedia concept-album and was a hybrid approach to Leeni's home recording, married with the live overdubs from the band. Midnight Veil was release as a video-album: a flm of 12 interwoven music videos, each with their own style, following the journey of a magic lamp that travels between the videos. The project was launched and then successfully funded on Kickstarter in September of 2013 and released in October 2014.After taking some time to grow as an ensemble and to create new material, Prom Queen is now gearing upfor their 3rd release Doom-Wop. While Midnight Veil explored using technology to emulate the sights and sounds of a foregone era, Doom-Wop is a return to a classic form: all live instruments, live band-takes and delivered on vinyl. The group also grew by several members: adding Jon Sampson on saxaphone, Birch Pereira on bass and keys and a duo of drag queen backup singers. (On the recording: Mal De Fleur, Jimmie Herrod) (Live: Joelle & Evonne) Prom Queen's Doom-Wop is due out September 22nd
