Kleenex Girl Wonder is the chameleon-esque stage name of one Graham Smith, a songwriter from the suburbs of Chicago who’s been calling New York City his home for some time now. Beginning with a group of neighborhood friends and evolving into a shifting cast of players, KGW is a sort of indie rock institution, constantly experimenting while staying true to its time-tested formula. The current band features Smith on bass and vocals, Thayer McClanahan on guitar, and Matt LeMay on drums.
Featured song: “Dieffenbachia”
