Biography

Meeting of Important People is an indie pop band from Pittsburgh, PA. Their work has been featured on E's KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS, MTV's TEEN MOM, THE REAL WORLD, and JERSEY SHORE, hit web series OFF-BRAND, and CBS' THE GHOST WHISPERER, among others.

The band’s debut single “Mothers Pay More” ignited a media and blogging frenzy in the Summer of 2008, and their 2009 debut album on the Authentik label has been named a top release by several blogs and radio stations, including influential station WYEP-FM. MOIP's subsequent summer 2010 EP release “Quit Music", a pleasant little collection of creepy suburban indie-pop songs, now has even more folks listening intently worldwide.

The band has recorded with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron&Wine), has starred in a heavily-viewed cardboard city music video, traveled extensively, gained airplay on terrestrial and satellite stations, and has shared the stage with renowned artists such as Ok Go, The Secret Machines, and Sam Roberts Band. Their recordings have recently been re-pressed onto vinyl for 2011 release by legendary garage label Get Hip.

MOIP keeps the loud parts loud, the pretty parts pretty, and the people happy.
