“It has turned into a collective of sorts,” said Taylor Dexter, the man behind local R&B/pop band Air Life. The lineup currently has seven talented people in it including singer Cassandra McGrath whose voice just blew me away at Echo Park Rising. It bent and soared in ways that seemed very complicated, but she did so in such an annoyingly effortless way. Some people are just born with it, you know? Together, they put on an energetic show that’s meant for dancing in dark and sweaty clubs. Catch them live ASAP and bring your bae.
