While many musicians have everything from stylists, producers, publicists and perhaps most importantly, record labels making sure they succeed in a cut-throat industry, Alicia Warrington and Marlene Hammerle of the All-Girls Boy Choir are doing it all on their own.
Along with writing, recording and promoting their music they are independently funding a national tour — all moves that have set them apart from their contemporaries.
The two Michigan natives formed All-Girls Boy Choir in 2008, and say it's a rock band with strong roots in blues, country and metal. They independently recorded an EP late last year and have decided to trade in their beloved Glendale house for an RV to travel across the country for the remainder of the year, stopping in Austin, Little Rock, Nashville and more.
They are versatile musicians — Warrington sings lead vocals and plays drums, bass and banjo, while Hammerle (nicknamed "The Hammer") handles lead guitar, slide guitar and harmonica.
