"A.D. Amorosi / Philadelphia City Paper"

"..vicious lyrical streak, a garish set of pipes.. keen sense of punk-soul melody and guitar heroics."
- Philadelphia City Paper

"Bruce Warren / WXPN, The Key"

They met in 2008, bonded over their love of The Beatles and The Ramones, and began writing.. smart, crisp power pop and rock songs."


John & Brittany (self-titled) EP (2011)



John & Brittany are a songwriting duo hailing from Philadelphia, PA, comprised of guitarists John Faye and Brittany Rotondo. Faye, the frontman of IKE, one of the city's best-known rock bands, met Rotondo in late December of 2008. The two struck up an immediate musical kinship, with a mutual love of the Beatles and the Ramones, and within a couple months the pair were writing songs together, one of which ("Last Act") would end up on IKE's 2010 release "Tie The Knot With All That You Got." Never having performed live or seriously played an instrument before, Rotondo received her first guitar in June of 2009 and by December was performing "Last Act" onstage with IKE at their sold out album release show at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. ??Over the course of the following year, Faye and Rotondo hit their creative stride with a string of memorable, quirky songs, snapshots of damaged nicotine addicts, angry middle managers, and close encounters with whiskey-swilling devils. Anchored by Rotondo's simultaneously blunt and poetic lyricism and elevated by Faye's knack for creating unforgettable melodies, John & Brittany's music is a true partnership of youth and experience, order and chaos, escape and reality. In addition to their duo performances, John & Brittany also work with a full band, featuring Jay Miraglia on drums and Mike Vivas on bass. In July of 2011, John & Brittany release their self-titled debut EP, the first official release on IT KEEPS EVOLVING!
