“Exclusive Interview with Short Lived Affair”
“Short Lived Affair is an all-girl band that was formed in late 2008 and has since become one of the most widely recognized local bands in New Jersey.”
"In my 10 years of attending concerts I’ve seen few bands with the stage presence and talent as this four piece."
"It's the coolest feeling ever to hear a bunch of voices singing your lyrics and your music back at you!"
“ Monica Kelly (lead vocals), Taylor Coigne (bass and vocals) Kaitlyn Young (guitar) and Rachel Visitacion (drums and percussion) have taken the music scene by storm and are catching the eyes of music critiques, rock journalists as well as developing a strong fan base. ”
“Khalil from Roots in Stereo looked at me and said “That’s Short Lived Affair. Check them out their amazing”. He did not lie. The 4 piece group completely took over the show blazing through originals and a great Fall out Boy cover. ”
“The four senior high school girls of Short Lived Affair won a spot to play at Bamboozle for the second year in a row! This year marks a special year where the show is celebrating its 10th Anniversary.”
“The members of Short Lived Affair, a rock band from Marlton, shouldn’t be taken too seriously. But as a band — and more specifically, an all-girl rock band — there’s nothing to laugh at here.”
“The young women of Short Lived Affair are working hard to repeat their performance at the annual Bamboozle Festival and support their latest release. Finalists in The Break competition, the rock band will play April 14 at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park as it continues its quest. After earning a spot in last year’s Bamboozle lineup, Short Lived Affair hopes to return this summer to the popular festival, which is typically attended by tens of thousands of fans.”
"These Girls Rock! Short Lived Affair, the all-female rock band from South Jersey I wrote about last spring, is getting ready to graduate from high school -- and into the big time."
“Anyone who follows college basketball will tell you that the best teams in the March Madness tournament have a roster filled with experienced, hard nosed players who have tournament experience. The four Cherokee High School senior rock artists of Short Lived Affair will tell you the same thing, as they are looking to successfully defend their title and perform at the Bamboozle Festival again this summer.”
“When Short Lived Affair played their first South Jersey club gigs in 2009, “everyone thought we were the girlfriends of the band,” bassist Taylor Coigne recalls. Lead singer Monica Kelly builds on the riff: “We were in the green room, and people were like, ‘Oh, are your boyfriends playing tonight?’ “ Not. When these five young women take the stage, boyfriends are in the audience. And everybody’s dancing, because this band rocks. ”
"More than just a girl band!"
“ South Jersey Kitchencore!”
“Local All Girl Band Short Lived Affair gets big honor.”
“When I was in high school, I secretly wanted to be a rock star. Unfortunately I never got further than singing an off-key rendition of “Volcano Girls” with my friend’s band at Scream in the Field. So I was stoked to see that five girls from my old high school are actually making it happen.”
"Ready to Rock" Five teenage girls with a passion for music may be in for a long career as Short Lived Affair.
