Radio Love is the debut album from the band Player Piano. Singles include Kings & Queens and My Name Will Be A Myth

Player Piano is the musical vessel of Jeremy Radway. Hailing from Bloomington, Indiana - home of the writer Kurt Vonnegut, after whose first novel Player Piano is named – Jeremy was raised on jazz by his sax-playing father. He studied at the Berklee School of Music, before playing in a series of bands back in Bloomington. Then he followed a girl to London.

In the UK, Jeremy fell in with the Scottish folk collective centered around Fence Records, putting out a critically lauded EP 'Into the Dark' on the label, and touring with Mercury Award-nominee King Creosote. With the implosion of Fence, Jeremy was left on his own to produce his debut album. And at long last it is here.

Radio Love is a joyous combination of propulsive grooves and big hooks that has drawn comparisons to everyone from David Bowie to Sly and the Family Stone.

Critical Reception

Louder Than War: "This opening single (Radio Love) sets the bar incredibly high, with a hook laden chorus and an incessant groove it’s one of those tracks that sticks." [1]

Clash Magazine: "New album ‘Radio Love’ drops on July 1st, with Clash able to premiere the supremely intelligent funk-pop banger ‘Kings & Queens’. Rooted in that chugging, Talking Heads style bass, the choppy guitars and laid back rhythm recall Metronomy’s more direct moments. The whole package, though, sounds utterly Player Piano." [2]
