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.

  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!
