New York melodic rock band Slyboots formed the way many of the best bands do these days: hard work and a little luck. KG* Noble (guitar/vocals) and Margaret LaBombard (bass) had been playing together in bands for years. When they found themselves in need of a new vocalist, they turned to their trusty network of local musicians including the legendary Sal Maida, of Roxy Music and Sparks. As luck would have it, Tiffany Lyons (lead vocals) had just played an Irish Festival in her hometown of Rockaway Beach, NY with Sal on bass. He was so impressed with her singing that he immediately recommended that she get in touch with his friends. The connection was magical.
Slyboots’ unique yet cohesive sound can be attributed to their different tastes, but similar inspirations. Despite their wide-ranging influences: The Beatles, The Kinks, The Smiths, The Cure – their shared admiration for strong females that have paved the way, e.g., Talking Heads’ Tina Weymouth, Metric songwriter Emily Haines and Tiffany’s favorite, Barbra Streisand, binds them together.
Their band name came about when Slyboots was the “word of the day” on KG*’s phone. It made the shortlist, and then stuck because they decided the definition “one who is cunning or mischievous in an engaging way” fit their personalities and vibe implicitly. And their dynamic live set embodies this playful misbehavior. There’s a confidence emanating from the stage and a mystique that can only be had when three powerhouse females team up, soar over life’s hurdles, and do what they were born to do.
