Armed with fiercely catchy melodies, tight harmonies, and lyrics laden with equal parts wit and sarcasm, the all-sister indie, pop-rock band The Beautifully Broken® has officially released their self-titled, first, full-length album (June 2009).
The sisters (Mandie, Michaela, and Whitney) fought through three studios and two long years to create the 10 tracks included on their eclectic freshman offering; coming out on the other side with a new zeal for creating music, embarking on a sophomore follow-up with a focus on created and found instruments and a more pop-y, ambiant sound that's sure to thrill!
Inspired by a wide variety of musical artists and genres, TBB sites Michael Jackson, Bjork, Imogen Heap, Dolly Parton, Hanson, My Chemical Romance, Heart, and The Beatles as their biggest influences. Their broad sense of musicality has lead to a unique sound that has been described as "pop music with a true rock sensibility". The band, however, prefers to remain free of labels and as "ambiguous" (and even "genre-less") as possible. Their wish is to use their music to break through creativity-stifling conventions such as genres and stereotypes, instead focusing on what they consider "good music and songs" which they believe transcend time, age, place, genre, and radio-plays.
Named an "Artist to Watch" by Our Stage and Taxi.com, The Beautifully Broken® is on the brink of "something bigger". The girls will begin their first round of small-stage shows in the fall and winter of 2009/10 in their native Iowa and throughout other mid-west cities, branching out from there between recording sessions and other creative projects to bring their special brand rock-infused pop to a venue near you!
