Bio

Once upon a time there were six girls from the San Francisco Bay Area all in love with the entire world and all its people. Musicians since birth and friends since shortly thereafter, they were inspired one late summer day to start a band unlike any other, a band that would be insightful, inspiring, and fun.
The girls, Molly (guitar, bass, glockenspiel, vocals), Andrea (keys, glockenspiel, vocals), Mansi (alto saxophone), Audrey (violin, vocals), VyVy (guitar, keys, glockenspiel, vocals), and Laura (percussion), composed their first song, "For Ludo with Love and Squalor" in the garage of their friend and sound producer Ben Englert of Benglert Productions.
The Pizookies are wholly dedicated to songwriting, practicing, and performing. They have performed for such events as local high schools’ Battle of the Bands, World Hunger Day concerts, Darfur benefit concerts, and the Invisible Issues Concert, which raised funds for a Zambian AIDS orphans, with headlining bands Ashes Ashes and Push to Talk. All activists in their own right, the six Pizookies use music to make a difference in people's lives. In the winter of 2006, they recorded "Ashley's Lullaby," a ballad for a friend of theirs who is doing tremendously well in her battle against leukemia. They loaned the song to Global Grooves, a local compilation album that raised money for a public health project in India. Also for the same cause, they helped raise money in an auction by creating an auction package in which they promised to write a song for the highest bidder leading to the composition of “She’s Grace.�
In May 2007, The Pizookies launched The Pizookie Project: Share the Music, Spread the Love, Find the Cure. Moved by their loved ones’ battles against cancer, they donate all of their earnings to The American Cancer Society. They launched the project in summer 2007, during which they released their debut album Love at First Bite, embarked on a tour of the Bay Area, and led a Relay for Life Team in raising over $5000 for cancer research.
The Pizookies constantly challenge themselves to grow. Currently studying either at their first year in college or their final year in high school, the six Pizookie girls continue to run their project and write music, collaborating digitally on a soon-to-be-released Winter EP. They are also making plans for a full-length concept album for summer 2008 that bridges visual, literary, and musical art and tells the stories of people whose voices have gone unheard. Until then, they are busy writing, singing, recording, traveling, discovering, making noise, celebrating, laughing, crying, and living. They want you to know that they love you and that they wish you nothing but peace, love, and pizookies.
