Thanya Iyer Short Info

In the year MMXII, Thanya started writing new songs but who would she choose to play in the band. Would she choose Alex (Pompey) to play bass? Yep. Would she choose Daniel Gelinas to play drums? Yep. Would she choose Simon Millerd to play trumpet? Yep. Would she choose Shaina Hayes to sing backup vocals? Yep. Would she choose Trey Anastasio (of Phish) to play guitar? Nope. Thanya doesn't have guitar in her band. Having assembled an array of amazing artists, they began recording in a church with a moldy ceiling, a moldy basement, and of course a bedroom made out of pews while simultaneously playing at POP Montreal (while half of the band had strep throat), MURAL Festival (while a third of the band was performing in a bilingual "popera" about a surfers in New Jersey) and Shigawake Music Festival (Everyone was there and had a great time). Having returned from a 3 week tour of Ontario/Maritimes/Quebec, no one is sick, no one is playing in any poperas, still no one is playing guitar and everyone is excited to release their debut album "Do You Dream?", an experiment of experimentation and songs coming together. Some might call it "songmentation".
