A winter-long residency with the one and only Revenge Wife. Tonight, she invites Chris Wills to join her behind the booth!

 

Chris Wills is making spiritual folk rock for people who love music and love themselves. Focusing first on the connection with himself and his audience, he spent the last 8 years perfecting his craft as a song writer. Chris is inspired by Jason Isbell, Rufus Wainwright, and The Boss (Bruce, duh), and lyrically he’s exploring new territory as a sensitive man trying to navigate life as a Musician-slash-house painter from Cranford, New Jersey.
Embedded in the Los Angeles music scene, he’s been collaborating with producers Colyer (Ethel Cain) and Louie Diller (Marina, HOLYCHILD). This year Chris released his anticipated EP, Seasons, along with an accompanying short film, toured with James Supercave, De Lux and Revenge Wife.Words don’t do him justice, you have to hear it. My suggestion is this: go outside, put your phone on airplane mode, and listen to Seasons while you’re walking on a new path. There’s so much world building that he’s doing as an artist and somehow, that’s the world he’s creating. It’s felt in his live show, it’s felt in his visuals and it’s felt in his songs.

Chris Wills is decidedly independent and has been featured in Luna Collective, Flood Magazine, American Songwriter and too many to mention here.

He has an arsenal of songs he’ll be releasing in 2024 and he plans to tour the US and UK. When he’s not making music he loves hanging out with his three dogs and playing basketball (woo!).

 

Recent Spotify Fresh Finds Pop-cover girl, Revenge Wife is the solo project of former HOLYCHILD lead singer, Liz Nistico. Those who have witnessed her life as an artist can attest that she’s no stranger to evolution.

In her time with HOLYCHILD, Nistico used their far-reaching platform to expound feminism in pop culture, releasing highly-personal songs “Wishing You Away,” “Carmelo,” and “Bathroom Bitch.” She was also able to further her skill set as an artist– directing all of the music videos, getting a record deal with Glassnote Records, touring the world, and playing multiple festivals (Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball, ACL, FujiRock). Now her solo project is already taking off.

Her past experience is why Revenge Wife feels so refined. Garnering praise from highly acclaimed publications, including Paper, Flood Magazine, Substream Magazine, and Billboard she seems to be unbothered by the onset of attention. KCRW loved her song Niente, all in Italian. And Wonderland Mag says they’re “breaking the repeat button” on her music. The media are drawn to the overwhelming sense of liberation they heard in her music and the subtle disconnect between her lyrics and lighthearted melodies. She piqued everyone’s curiosity in the way she expressed extreme vulnerability within her lyrics, depicting heartbreak and past trauma, both in her personal life and in her time in the music industry, and combined them with an effervescent synth-pop sound.

When she isn’t working on Revenge Wife, Nistico shares her craft with other artists– directing music videos and co-writing songs for other artists (yes, she wrote “Xanax Damage” for Future). Accolades aside, she stands as a female artist who continues to grow in the public eye. Her sound is evolving and she’s moving into new territories as a songwriter, a director, a performer, a singer, and a person. She’s set to release her debut album as Revenge Wife in summer 2024.
