I do not know much at all about Blue Kid, I just discovered her/them today, but worth checking out for sure!
And take a listen to “Can You Keep Up”:
Their bio from Reverb Nation:
Blue Kid’s particular brand of so-honest-it’s-embarrassing piano-rock grew out of the solo writings of Lydia Benecke, the band’s lead singer & songwriter. Lydia’s music draws heavily on her own daydreams and adventures to yield up an eclectic combination of pop, rock and cabaret.
The band’s fans have compared their music stylistically to Fiona Apple and Rufus Wainwright, and Lydia’s vocals to those of Adele and Sara Bareilles.
Last December she played a show with Nellie McKay, so that says something there too!
