Shiksa / Bio

The beginnings of Shiksa started at a comedy night in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in April of 2012. Gary French (Bass and Vocals) and Zarrin Taj (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards) met and discussed a desire to make music like influences such Adam and The Ants, The Cars, and The Pixies. They exchanged samples and were soon writing together in the studio. Not long afterward, Jorge Vega (Drums, Vocals) joined the group and SHIKSA was now born! Often described as if the B'52's, Chrissie Hynde, and Elvis Costello hosted an orgy and it was held at the Pixies house, this is what Shiksa sounds like.
