About FireBug:
Forged in the storied Wicker Park section of Chicago by vocalist Juliette Tworsey and guitarist Jules Shapiro, FireBug began cutting their musical teeth in and around local Chicago, then immersed themselves in the Los Angeles/Silver Lake club scene, sharing the stage with many artists including Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), Abby Travis (Eagles Of Death Metal), unplugged sets at the Hotel Café with new folk artist Jesca Hoop (Tom Waits), and even performing acoustic with classic 60's folk icon Donovan.

FireBug has recently made New Orleans their home, and have performed at Satchmo Festival, Dirty Linen Festival, Cutting Edge Music Festival, Café Negril, BMC, Hi-Ho Lounge, Siberia, Hard Rock Café, and Circle Bar.

FireBug's expertly woven hard rock/indie/blues sound with a bit of Irish/British influence is brought home by the sweet, slightly psychedelic, but intense vocals of Juliette Tworsey. Their music can be gentle one moment, then fiercely aggressive the next.

FireBug have toured the UK several times, including a memorable performance in Knebworth at the sold out 2010 Sonisphere Festival with Iron Maiden, Iggy and the Stooges, Alice In Chains, The Cult, Good Charlotte, Papa Roach and many other major acts. In London, FireBug has performed in famous venues such as Dublin Castle, The Halfmoon and The Rhythm Factory. FireBug were voted best DIY songwriters and Winner of the UK New Music Video Awards, and have won Best International Act two years in a row (2009 & 2010) at the UK Exposure Music Awards (sponsored by

FireBug are currently working on their next album with producer Chris Goss (The Cult, Queens of the Stone Age, Stone Temple Pilots, The Duke Spirit, Arctic Monkeys, etc.), with a planned worldwide release in 2012.
