Blending modern indie pop with Stax-worthy hooks, they are a mobile cauldron of everything retro and cosmopolitan. LEGS was formed in 2013 by Seattle-based Tito Ramsey, his brother Jack, their childhood friend Charles Larson, and Ecuadorian brothers Juan Miguel and Herman Marin. Their self-titled EP attracted early press when their single “So Obvious” was featured in the 2014 film Obvious Child starring Jenny Slate and David Cross. Pitchfork ranked the Obvious Child soundtrack as one of the top six of the summer.
Past shows have brought them to Quito, Guayaquil and Portoviejo (Ecuador), BRIC Arts Media in Brooklyn, The Wassaic Project in Upstate NY, the San Juan Islands, CMJ in New York, Timbrrr Winter Music Festival in Washington State, and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in the Berkshires. Fall of 2015 will be occupied with a Pacific North West tour, with stops in Tacoma, Seattle, Indianola, Yakima, Olympia, in support of their debut album, Altitud.

Tito Ramsey’s creations are a synergy of aggressive pop, electronica, and soul, often drawing comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Little Richard. His solo show features guitar, keys, vocals, live beat sequencing, recordings of found sounds and spontaneous bodily eruptions. Tito has played shows in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona and in many cities around the US.
