Bio

The collaboration of Steve Pardo with sister-in-law singer Lindley Cameron began as the core concept of Steve's graduate thesis at the University of Miami. Lindley was flown into Miami for a rigorous week of songwriting and final vocal takes in early January 2008. In the following months, Steve arranged, recorded, and mixed the songs that make up the completed EP "Fairytale Thankyou".

In May 2008, Lindley Cameron and the band, complete with a horn and string section, began performing live in Miami. "Fairytale Thankyou" was set free into the public's eye to many listener's enjoyment.

"Fairytale Thankyou" tends not to settle in one style, and is defined rather by simple melodies, thoughtful harmony, and rich orchestration. Flute flutters echo vocal breaks, string pads murmur under steady percussion, trumpets proclaim awkwardly, etc. The lyrics reflect on social and spiritual struggles in an attempt to convey some sort of intended message in a sort-of self biographical way. Overall, it's music that's neither simple nor complicated, yet both. Miami seems to get it, somehow.

Chicago born Steve Pardo is a jazz saxophonist, yet is interested in way too many things, which is why he thought it would be great to start an indie rock project. His influences in his composing and arranging are a bit obvious at times, but it manages to contain a consistent sound in and of itself. Lindley Cameron is a singer from Dallas, TX. Although she has always sung at church and at nursing homes, this is the first time she's fronted an original-music project.
