"LITTLE BAND... BIG SOUND!"
---The Boston Globe (Boston, MA).
"Krahmer can sing, scream, blow flute, drum, & tease, and she does them all REALLY well. Libutti plays everything else (he even uses his feet!) ... GO SEE SIRSY!"
---The Village Voice (NYC).
"Radio friendly, and eye-friendly, but the material is actually REALLY good. Like pop songs used to be before MTV".
---Indie Sounds NY (NYC).
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"... 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 drum stick, 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).
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, Lez Zeppelin, and many more.
SIRSY's well crafted, hook laden, songs are rich with clever lyrics and infectious melodies. SIRSY's song "Revolution" was distributed worldwide through the November 2008 Relix Magazine CD (alongside Joan Osborne, Lucinda Williams, and more).
