Blonde Redhead is comprised of lead vocalist Kazu Makino and brothers Amedeo and Simone Pace--siblings, who both have degrees in jazz from the prestigious Berklee College of Music. After a chance meeting at a restaurant in New York, the three decided to form a band. As the group started playing gigs and honing its sound, a distinct form of alternative dream pop started to emerge that was bolstered by Makino's unique voice. Shortly after, the band caught the eye of Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, who produced the band's first album. Since dropping its self-titled debut album in 1995 Blonde Redhead, with its eclectic sound, found success with an underground following.
