SIRSY with opener Smutdolly
Sirsy has played over 250 shows a year nationally for the last 10 years. They average about 60,000 miles per year in their little white van aptly named “Miles”. They tour for a living. Although you’ll normally find them in the headline slot, they’ve also opened for: Maroon 5, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Train, RaRaRiot, Third Eye Blind, Collective Soul, Lifehouse, Blues Traveler, Cheap Trick, and many more. SIRSY has played official showcases at CMJ and SXSW as well as marquee venues like The Viper Room and Gramercy Theater. Both Mel and Rich have theatre backgrounds. So, their energetic live show often includes stories and laughter from the stage. Although the lyrics can be introspective and the power of Sirsy can get pretty intense, “there is no sadness there”, Mel says. On stage they radiate joy. “It’s just us being free and playing music…”
SIRSY is currently hard at work writing new songs for a follow-up to their latest EP “Sketches and Ghosts” and their most recent full-length offering, “Coming into Frame”. “Coming into Frame” was produced by Grammy-winners, Paul Kolderie & Sean Slade (Radiohead, Hole, Dresden Dolls, Pixies). SIRSY’s song “Cannonball” was featured on the hit tv show “Shameless” (on Showtime). Their music video for “Lionheart” was in rotation on MTVu and their song “Revolution” was the theme song for a PBS documentary “So Right, So Smart”. (The music video for ‘Revolution’ was also in rotation on HBO).
“Pouring their souls out and rocking the shit outta the crowd, was SIRSY … just phenomenal! SIRSY is NOT simply a two piece, they are a head scratching, ‘WOW!’ This is the complete package in a fun sized, rock and roll, smiling, laughing, have a good goddamn time with your friends, band!” (-SXSW Music Blog, Austin TX) “SIRSY is Highly talented, “edgy-feel-good” and fun to watch, you gotta go see them.” (-Houston Music Blog)
