About The New Respects
“[The New Respects]…really hit warp speed upon picking up electric instruments and honing a fuzzed-out blues-rock aesthetic.” —Rolling Stone
Hailing from Nashville, Zandy Mowry lays down the group’s funk-inspired grooves on guitar, her brother Darius Fitzgerald drives the beat with his retro rhythms and their cousin Jasmine Mullen brings it all together with soaring lead vocals. Having performed together since their youth, the 20-something trio uplifts audiences with their playful, energetic and familiar vibe. Filled with catchy hooks and fresh throwback sounds, the group’s debut 5-song EP Here Comes Trouble (2017) launched them into the national spotlight as Rolling Stone named them one of “10 New Artists You Need to Know.” Quickly gaining traction with fans and critics alike, the EP’s standout single, “Trouble” garnered over 2 million streams and received sync placements with Fox Sports, ESPN and TNT. On the heels of their success, The New Respects embraced an aggressive touring schedule, opening for Switchfoot, Robert Randolph, O.A.R., and NEEDTOBREATHE, and making appearances at key festivals such as Hangout, Bumbershoot and Rock the Ranch. The group’s star continued to rise after releasing their 2018 album Before the Sun Goes Down to critical acclaim.
