SIRSY, the soulful indie pop rock duo is a musical breath of fresh air in a world of homogenized & overly super-sized corporate rock.
Born to Rich Libutti, a lover of The Beatles, Bowie, and Star Wars, who rocks the guitar, and Melanie Krahmer, who must be the love child of Eartha Kitt and Superman, SIRSY is a force much greater than most found on earth. Their clever, hook drenched songs are infectious and lyrically run the gamut from wildly joyful to utterly heartbreaking. Melanie Krahmer, has been described as a girl with a “stunning, inimitable, voice capable of a lion’s roar and a floaty whisper, with the lungs of a teenage athlete”.
She plays a full drum kit while standing up, handles bass (played on a keyboard with her drumstick) and throws in flute solos and melodica too. Rich Libutti plays everything else, including bass (on a keyboard at his feet); and he’s the anchor to Melanie’s on stage tornado. Playing over 200 shows a year, they’ve shared stages with Maroon5, Train, Lifehouse, RaRaRiot, Collective Soul, Third Eye Blind, Blues Traveler, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Boys Like Girls, Cheap Trick, & more.
Now signed to Funzalo Records, they’re finishing up a new disc with knob-twisting geniuses, Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade (Hole, Radiohead, Dresden Dolls, Pixies). SIRSY also recently finished a studio project with famed producer, David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor, Kelly Clarkson) who called Melanie’s “a world class voice.” Melanie is endorsed nationally by Vater Percussion and has been featured in Modern Drummer Magazine.
