This fiery, sultry, soulful, indie pop rock duo is a musical “breath of fresh air in the too often homogenized landscape of indie rock.” Sirsy is fronted by the charismatic Melanie Krahmer who critics call a girl with a “stunning voice capable of a lion’s roar and a floaty whisper” and a girl “with the lungs of a teenage athlete and the growl of a sixty-something blues singer”. Krahmer is also the band’s drummer, playing a full drum kit (while standing up), bass parts with her drumstick, a few Ian Anderson-esque flute solos and some melodica, too. Sharing the stage is co-writer and bandmate, Rich Libutti on guitar. Libutti also sits in on piano, plays bass parts with his feet, and the occasional snare part with his feet (during Krahmer’s flute solos – so the drums don’t stop). It’s truly a “must-see;” despite the multi-tasking going on with this unique set up, the duo manages to have a “dynamic stage presence and chemistry” that has critics raving.”Though there are only two musicians on stage, if you close your eyes, you’d swear there were more!” “This is a FULL BAND… A ROCK BAND!” The Boston Globe says: “Little band, BIG sound!” and New York’s City’s village voice urges readers to “Go see Sirsy!”
Despite the multi-tasking on stage to create such a full sound, this critically acclaimed duo has a “dynamic stage presence” that “wows audiences at over 250 shows per year nationally.” Sirsy has played with: Maroon5, Lifehouse, Collective Soul, Third Eye Blind, Blues Traveler, Cheap Trick, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Vertical Horizon, Fuel, Led Zeppelin, and many more.
