 JUNE 2015 BAND OF THE MONTH

 

 

 THE PHOENIX PHILOSOPHY

 

 

MEMBERS:

Jesse Weber - Vocals, Keys, Programming
Stephanie Thorup - Guitar, Vocals, Keys
 

 

BIO: 

The Phoenix Philosophy is an Electronic Rock band from Minneapolis, MN. The idea behind “the phoenix philosophy” applies to the band’s sonic evolution from a 4 piece rock band into a heavily electronic influenced duo consisting of Jesse Weber (vocals/keys/programming) and Stephanie Thorup (vocals/guitar/keys). Keeping the element of commanding guitars and introducing dueling male/female vocals over eerie synths creates a sonic blend of rock and electronic (pop) that matures and inspires with every release.

With several sold out shows at venues such as the Fine Line Music Cafe and First Avenue/7th Street in their hometown under their belt, The Phoenix Philosophy have also made their way across the midwest over the last few years. Most recently, they played to packed houses at The Rave/Eagles Club (Milwaukee, WI) and The Beat Kitchen (Chicago, IL). The band has shared the stage alongside national touring bands including Switchfoot, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Dangerous Summer, Icon For Hire, and Throw The Fight. The Phoenix Philosophy have also received airplay on commercial and internet radio stations.

Rising higher and burning brighter than ever, The Phoenix Philosophy have proven themselves as an unstoppable force and will continue to transcend beyond their roots in the Minneapolis music scene.
