Still working on that hot first release.



Joanne Togati (Lead Vocals,Lyrics, Composition, Keys) and Eric Lemberg(Guitar,Production, Composition, Harmony,Keys) first started plotting their musical career in 2010 when they came together to work on Joanne's original material. They soon realized they had a knack for inspiring each other's creative sides and a new collective sound was born that was bleeding with pop infused melancholic angst. With melodic vocals that soar and that have been compared to Siouxsie Sioux, and many tracks that feature psychedlic guitar at a DnB tempo, the Serpent and the Apple are uniting the elements of electronic with some mean guitar, highlighted by the sweet yet powerful voice of the lead singer. The lyrics touch on subjects of altering one's perception and throwing light on both the dark and light sides of human nature, with a sex appeal to boot. Both members have vast musical backgrounds behind them. Joanne had been trained in musical theater, opera and jazz from the early age of ten, and Eric started playing guitar from around the same age and went on to master all the instruments one would find in a rock band, as well as having the ability to play anything by ear on the spot. They honed their sound and in 2011 put the band together. Josh Pikulin (bass) and Ray Belli (drums), both NYU graduates, gave the band their first legs in playing the local music scene in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Steadily gaining new fans through local music festivals, famed NYC clubs and VFW Halls, they continue to hone their sound and their craftmanship. They self financed their first EP, Heartless to the Cruel and have gained the support of artistic directors who are helping them get to that next level all future rockstars aspire to.
