Sirsy @ Fairways at the A
The Boston Globe sums it up: Little band, big sound. But the ONLY thing little about SIRSY is that theres just two of them. The rest is bigger than balls on a buffalo. SIRSY plays rock and soul that's chock full of sing along melodies, sincerity and heart, and just the right amount of sass. Lead Vocalist, Melanie, also plays a full drum kit - standing up (shes featured in Modern Drummer and endorsed by Vater Percussion & Paiste Cymbals). She also plays bass on a keyboard with her drumstick and flute, too. Guitarist, Rich, plays a well loved and road worn Rickenbacker through a pedal board full of vintage effects. He also plays bass... on a keybaord with his feet. SIRSY plays 200+ shows per year all over the US. They've shared stages with: Maroon 5, Train, Grace Potter, Lifehouse, RaRaRiot, Third Eye Blind, Collective Soul, Blues Traveler, Cheap Trick and many. They've played SXSW, the Viper Room, Gramercy Theatre, Beachland Ballroom, World Caf Live, & many more. SIRSYs latest CD was produced by Grammy-winners, Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade (Radiohead, Hole, Dresden Dolls, Pixies). "Little band, big sound." (-The Boston Globe, MA) "One of most powerful and flexible voices you'll ever hear. Clever, smart songs with more hooks than a tackle box." (-Times Union, NY) "Killer rock guitar riffs that are every schoolboys wet dream." (-Instrumental Magazine Scotland) "Inventive rock and roll." (-Hartford Courant, CT)

If China Miville, Neil Gaiman and Hunter S. Thompson had a mnage trois, Dead Boys would be the lovechild. A cracking book. Jay Kristoff, author of Stormdancer

A macabre, madcap picaresque full of fast-talking corpses and philosophical skeletons. Squailia's super-charged prose swings from bone-crunching action to meditations on the meaning of life and the mysteries of death. It's an exuberant mashup. Brendan Mathews, author of The World of Tomorrow

Exquisite worldbuilding alongside a mix of humor and philosophy ... This underworld is a fascinating city. Publishers Weekly
