Anthony Green first began his solo career in 2008 with the release of his debut LP, Avalon. Since then, he has gone on to release a handful of acclaimed albums, including 2012’s Beautiful Things, which peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 chart, and 2013’s Young Legs, which charted at No. 67. This September,the Pixie Queen Tour will usher in a brand new era for the prolific musician.
Pennsylvania natives Green and Yip have been working together for years on music, so it made perfect sense for them to partner for the release of Pixie Queen. Yip had the vision of keeping everything under one roof, harkening back to the days of Motown, where the album was written, produced, mixed, mastered and released all within the same team. Memory Music is home to releases created in the legendary Philadelphia-area recording house, Studio 4. Yip, who has produced and engineered albums for Lauryn Hill, Title Fight, Circa Survive, Balance + Composure, La Dispute and Pianos Become the Teeth, launched the label in 2015 to highlight the community of artists he’s built around his studio and the overall vibe generated by the studio space. Each release reflects the uniqueness of Studio 4’s room and the way each artist uses it differently, creating varied albums that all carry a cohesive thread of their creative environment and Yip’s touch.
