ABOUT

We are three very dedicated musicians who have been playing together for three years and have strived to create songs with a very original sound. We were an established band that played in various venues across Philadelphia such as Milkboy and Kung Fu Necktie. Recently, our singer was let go because of differing senses of direction. So, we are searching for a new singer and possibly an additional guitarist or keyboard player. We are trying to make this our careers, and are interested in finding people with a similar attitude. At the moment, we practice four times a week, have professional gear, and a good practice space.

Also, we have a demo that we can send upon request that gives a good idea of our current sound.
