Additionally, we also want to thank everyone for your comments and questions. Although all the members of the band read your messages, it is impossible for us to reply to each one individually.
Many of you have asked for more information about the band. Here is a brief bio:
Firecat of Discord was formed in 1995 in Santa Fe, New Mexico by five musician-songwriters with the purpose of performing their original songs. In 1997 a sixth permanent member joined the band and Firecat of Discord began playing regularly around Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico, developing a loyal and enthusiastic following.
The band's repertoire is shaped by each songwriter's distinct musical personality. The influences of Rock, Jazz, Country, Reggae, Folk, R&B, Latin, and Native American music can all be heard in their unique sound.
The members of Firecat of Discord each bring a unique background and perspective to the sound of the band:
Vocalist MAURA DHU has performed on both coasts, offering her special blend of Pop and Jazz combined with Third-World rhythms. She also plays percussion.
Bass Player WES STUDI, best known as an actor in such films as "Geronimo", "Last of the Mohicans", "Heat", and the forthcoming "Mystery Men", is musically rooted in Country Rock and R&B with a Cherokee twist.
On guitar and vocals, BRUCE KING is the noted Oneida artist and writer of stage- and screen-plays. Bruce has been making music all his life, performing in New York and Chicago, as well as Santa Fe. He leans toward Folk Rock with a touch of the Blues, and a dash of Motown.
Lead guitarist JOSH GRINSPOON, hails from Boston. Upon moving to Santa Fe, he began writing Jazzy tunes with poetic lyrics, while moonlighting as an attorney. Josh's role in the band is now occupied by JAMES SEDOTI, whose sophisticated Jazz flavorings add a new element to the Firecat sound.
Viola player GARY STORM, is one of the two native New Mexicans in the band. He was a legendary all-night progressive-radio disc jockey in Buffalo, New York where he also fronted several bands. His emotional songs and classically-influenced viola add a distinctive touch to the Firecat mix.
Drummer and percussionist BENITO CONCHA is from Taos Pueblo in New Mexico. Formerly with the band Red Thunder, Benito has pioneered the use of traditional drums and percussion in non-traditional music. He was among the first to use native drums like a trap set.
