REINA DEL CID
When you hear the name Reina del Cid, you may think Latin music, but it truly is not the case with the Minneapolis singer. A stage name taken because she named her guitar "El Cid," (a knight) the artist came to the conclusion that she would be the "Reina," meaning queen in Spanish.

The writer draws much of her influence from Regina Spektor with smart lyrics and convincing melodies. While not Latin, Reina's music is flavored with a retro vibe. She doesn't take all the credit for the success of the songs, though, making sure to bring up how her band contributes to the writing process and, more importantly, the live show.

"When I bring the songs that I write to the band, I usually have the skeleton of songs, and they either add parts I would expect and it works well, or they totally change the genre of the song. Usually it's a fruitful collaboration. Toni [Lindgren], our lead guitarist, is great because she comes from many different backgrounds. She played with a jam band, a bluegrass band - so many different kinds of bands. Her musical library that's in her head is so vast that she'll hear the base of a song and come up with things that I never would have thought of. Chris [Wiberg - upright bass] and Clay [Whitney - drums] are wonderful. They added a lot to what I had when we started playing together."

In 2012, Reina del Cid began a weekly residency at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall in downtown St. Paul where she played with her band every week for nearly two years. Flash forward two years to 2015's The Cooling: the band is freshly emerged from the pressure cooker of more than 300 shows over two years both in their hometown and on national tours-tighter, bolder, and more sophisticated in style and form. Del Cid has blossomed into an authentic storyteller.

Reina del Cid with Toni Lindgren was a featured act at the 2015 Celebration of Women and Their Music. The Listening Room is proud to bring the entire band back for their new album release party!
