Ladycop Catch A Wave

Formed in New York City in early 2006 as a recording project, Ladycop is the brainchild of singer-bassist Cliff Rawson, (formerly of Boston cult faves Araby), and drummer-composer Kolby Wade. The duo quickly gained attention with a surprising 3-song demo that sounded more than home-made, and immediately set about searching for musicians to complete the live band. After several incarnations, the group now includes two more permanent members, Anne Carlisle and Derek Kretzer. Ladycop's debut self-release EP was greeted with enthusiasm from fans and critics.

After a wildly successful first tour of Europe in the spring of '08, Ladycop put the finishing touches on their second home-made EP, We're Not the Man, and headed back to Europe for a follow up DIY road-show. This excursion netted the band three outstanding live reviews, including one from the prestigious ZXZW festival in Tillburg, Holland, as well as attention from a number of European record labels. In addition, the group was thrilled to play a week-long string of engagements with the much-loved London five-piece Cats and Cats and Cats to enthusiastic audiences across England.

Ladycop is currently touring Europe in support of their debut full-length record Waves, and will embark on a North American tour in January.
