dressed up like a lady: We make music.

Jan 24, 2011

We make music.

As I've mentioned before: MC and I are both musicians

Matt Collar and Cammila do some last minute arranging.
 I'm a singer, and I trained in bel canto style opera for many years, only to find myself in a string of rock bands throughout adult life. If you want to hear one of my favorite projects, a pop-punk band I was in called Bulletproof, you can listen here. MC is a gifted trumpet player (listen to some of his delicious stylings here), in addition to being an expert guitarist and beautiful singer. Sometimes I make him sing me "On the Street Where You Live" around the apartment, just to make me swoon. 

Yes, I wrapped MC in paper towel. No, I don't know why.

If our neighbors weren't separated from us by several feet of brick, they'd hear us doing our respective horn/vocal exercises every night. Or writing songs when we should be sleeping.

Naturally, we couldn't resist collaborating, resulting in our current band: The Trojan War.
 We've been in and out of the studio for the past few months, putting together a few songs with a fun, dance punk vibe influenced by Phoenix, the Killers, Alphabeat, Gang of Four, and probably a zillion other bands. Believe me, as soon as I post our new tracks, you'll hear about it! In the meantime, the studio process is ongoing, and you can see the recording journey progress here, on Facebook.


  1. Trained in opera... No wonder why you always have fabulous posture!

  2. Wow you two are one cool couple and your voice is beautiful

  3. i second j christina's comment .. the opera & posture go hand in hand!

    i love these recording studio shots! and i cant wait to hear more music from you two :)

  4. Aww I love phoenix and the killers; can't wait to hear your stuff!

    By the way, you wouldn't happen to know any bands that are similar, would you? I've been searching forever for a good new band but have found nothing :(

  5. Hey KaliC! I don't know how "new" you'd call any of these bands, since some of them have been at it for a few years now, but I just LOVE Biffy Clyro, Two Door Cinema Club, and Neon Trees. All great rock bands with a hot, dance punk vibe. Let me know if you like 'em!

  6. I want to marry that stripey dress!


Leave a comment. It's good for our relationship.
