illicitizen / Bio

Illicitizen are a varied mix of thought provoking lyrics, melodic bass grooves and spikey guitars. Without fail the duo is compared to early Talking Heads as well as being noted for changing their sound with each song. The constants are dramatic and demonstrative vocals and a stimulating bass beat.
Illicitizen is an indie rock band formed in Charlotte, NC USA in 2005. The original lineup was solely Eric Cavanaugh: Guitars, Vocals, Programming, bass, synths, power tools, etc… Bassist Maria Illicitizen who joined the fray in 2006, not only took an active role rewriting the existing songs but started to contribute drum programs, synth parts and other orchestrations. The two have been blazing a trail up and down the east coast USA since their inception.
