DJ Channy Pants:
Channy Leaneagh is the lead vocalist and co- of electro-pop group POLIÇA, who originally emerged from Minneapolis in 2011 when Channy and producer Ryan Olson began collaborating on a batch of synthesizer and percussion-heavy arrangements. The resulting debut, 2012's Give You The Ghost, immediately garnered international acclaim, with Rolling Stone hailing it as "the sound of heartbreak and celebration happening simultaneously" and Q praising it as "a bewitching, urgent, magical debut." The quick success of Give You The Ghost brought with it a heavy touring schedule and an itch to keep creating. Two albums, a live band, and several international tours later, POLIÇA have graced the stages of massive festivals around the world, from Coachella to Glastonbury, and performed on renowned television shows such as Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and Later With Jools Holland. Their most recent project, Music For The Long Emergency, is a collaboration with European chamber ensemble s t a r g a z e. The piece was commissioned by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music series and had its US debut last Fall at the Fitzgerald Theater.
