Divine Fits brings the prodigious songwriting and performing talents of Boeckner and Daniel together to create a captivating and energetic collection of songs that will delight fans both new and old.

Claire Boucher) visited the KEXP studios, we witnessed a young artist full of energy, humility and creativity. Enveloped in a fashionable oversized coat, she plopped down on the floor in the middle of the studio, surrounded herself with equipment, and began making magic with pedals and knobs. Her ethereal vocals — rising and falling one moment, weaving and darting another — and heady mix of sounds left us feeling a bit intoxicated.
