VIOLENT MAE was never intended to be a band. Becky asked Floyd to record and produce her first solo album, and as soon as they hit the studio, chemistry and dynamics between the two sparked the evolution of an artistic partnership. Following the release of their full-length debut record in 2013, the band toured nationally and garnered praise from Paste, The Deli Magazine, and others. Their sophomore release, Kid, was released in 2015.
“[Becky Kessler] projects a brooding unease that implies looming storms of emotion, edging ever closer to a full-fledged ourbust, yet never losing control… the twosome’s second album is a sizzling triumph.” – Mother Jones
