    Tragic Figures
"Cincinnati trio, Playfully Yours opened with a color and light show reminiscent of disco days with a spot-lit arena touch.
With as many blinking lights and glowing colors as a natural acid trip could allow they twisted knobs and pressed buttons. Guided by the center stage astral vocals of Katie Busemeyer, assisted by Brock and Maxx McKinley. They blended elements of early ‘80s synth and new-wave with touches of ‘90s alternative. Conjuring visions of Siouxie, The Cure, The Smiths and a few early zombie/slasher flicks from the decade of indulgence." -Mike Ritchie, Covering the Scene (Nov 2017)
In early 2011, the McKinley brothers were stringing together samples and creating experimental songs filled with texture, however they lacked a human element. Busemeyer, classically trained on piano, was pursuing vocal training and writing songs comprised of piano and vocals. The three decided to collaborate by blending their sounds. At first, contributing to each others' creations, and over time co-writing music, which formed a confluence of technical and melodic soundscapes.
Nearly a decade later, Playfully Yours have played over one hundred shows and been nominated for seven Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. They have released two original EPs and two full length LPs as well as an EP of cover songs.
Their highly anticipated second full length album "Locus of Control" was released on February 14th, 2020.
