TROUBLEMAKERS formed in April of 2011 after its members, Vanessa Haroutunian and Lauren Schaeffer met at a local bar. They sounded tight from their first jam session which took place in an empty apartment. That August they recorded their first EP, Louder All The Time, recorded by Sam Buck Rosen. "Jagged stormy guitars, a voice with the fire and fury of a Molotov cocktail, and the deadly focused rhythm of an explosive drummer may make Troublemakers just seem like, well, Trouble with a capital "t", but the steely intelligence of their lyrics sets them apart from the host of shout punk rock bands"(Kia Sleet Music Blog). TROUBLEMAKERS write their own songs while drawing from influences such as Joan Jett, Ramones, and Sleater-Kinney.
