There is more than one artist with the name Firebug: 1) Firebug, a fine ska/dub band from Sao Paulo, Brazil. 2) Forged in the storied Wicker Park section of Chicago by vocalist Juliette Tworsey and guitarist Jules Shapiro, Fire Bug began cutting their musical teeth in and around local Chicago venues before making their way out to Los Angeles. Since arriving in Los Angeles, Fire Bug has become a part of the essential club scene sharing the stage with many artists including Tom Morello (RATM / Audio Slave), Donita Sparks (L7), to even unplugged sets with new folk artist Jesca Hoop and even performing with classic 60’s folk icon Donovan. The band has also received high praise from various publications such as Time Out NY and LA Weekly. Through their exposure to over 300,000 MySpace Music fans, their 40,000+ fan base tends to compare the Fire Bug sound to that of a new millennium version of 70’s rock, with each song being stamped with their own unique signature.

Juliette’s voice is quirky yet distinct. Her vocals are a well-trained combination of high and low, slow and fast. Delicately gentle one moment and fiercely aggressive the next. Jules plays a guitar evocative of the Delta Blues with occasionally bizarre chord progressions and a touch of hard rock thrown in for good measure.

Taken independently, there are songs in the band’s repertoire, which could be classified as indie, blues, and even psychedelic. In the final analysis, Fire Bug is out to establish a new game and people want to hear what all the noise is about. In so doing, the band recently showcased in NYC CMJ 2007. Also, Firebug will be showcasing this year at the 2008 NorthByNorthEast Conference held in Toronto, the largest west coast music conference in North America.

With the top 5 most viewed EPK at Sonicbids. Winner of the UK New Music Awards 2007 and voted best DIY songwriters of 2006. Fire Bug currently have their songs “Paradise” and “Girl” spun on Chicago’s Q101 and on Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles. Read more on Last.fm.
