If you haven’t heard of the magical trio that makes up The Greeting Committee, get ready to fall in love with them, their sound, and taste in music.
Made up of extremely talented members Addie Sartino, Brandon Yangmi, and Pierce Turcotte, the indie-alt band recently released their latest studio album Dandelion in September and are preparing to play a spectacular hometown show in Kansas City tomorrow, April 9th.
The group got their start after winning a local talent show in 2014 and hitting open mic nights across Missouri. The band signed to Harvest Records while they were still in high school after the successful release of their debut EP It's Not All That Bad which includes their breakout hit single, “Hands Down.” If you’re unfamiliar with their killer discography, you may recognize their song “17,” which can be heard on the second season soundtrack of Netflix’s hit show, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
If you haven’t been lucky enough to see them live on their past headlining tours, perhaps you’ve caught their sets at Lollapalooza and the SXSW or their opening slots on tours with Hippo Campus, Tennis, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise.
Now, you have the opportunity to get to know the band a little better! The trio was kind enough to let us know what they’re listening to right now, making up a playlist of songs that keep them inspired and feeling good.

"We got to work with them to have them mix one of our songs and I discovered this song! I love the different textures they use to make this song such a head-bobber."

“I want to write something like this” was the thought that came to mind when I first heard this track. It’s still the thought that comes to mind 100+ listens later.
