The band is headed by Cailin Russo, who is the daughter of Unwritten Law’s Scott Russo. Along with Cailin Russo, the band, that only formed earlier this year, includes Tyler McCarthy on guitar, Hayley Brownell on drums and backing vocals and Sean Ritchie on bass. The band is pure fun and doesn’t take themselves too seriously with an indie pop/rock sound that is not only energetic, but funky. Russo’s EP, House with a Pool, is available now!PURCHASE/STREAM House with a Pool: Become a supporter of this podcast:
