I'm one half of the band Lemon Knife; I play drums, compose our lyrics, and occasionally sing in a punk style, while my girlfriend Mia plays distorted bass, writes our melodies, and performs the majority of our vocals in a more melodic style.
We're a hard rock/punk group influenced by riffy bands like Muse and The Who, classic punk like the Dead Kennedys, and story tellers like Townes Van Zandt. If you want to hear our music, here's one of our best songs, Lost at Sea, and here's one of our best John-sung songs, Storm Surge
And here's a link to our Bandcamp where you can listen to/buy our debut album, Songs About Water and Death, and our latest EP, In Our Darkest Sour: lemonknife.bandcamp.com
If you're a Chicago based band/venue interested in having us open for you/perform (here's some live footage), hit us up at lemonknifeband at gmail.com!
Finally, on a non-music note, I also perform with the Emeralds of Saigon, a Chicago-based improv comedy group!
