-from San Francisco, CA
-Creeper Lagoon are reuniting for the 25th anniversary of San Francisco's Noise Pop Music and Arts Festival in February! The indie troupe emerged in the early 1990s from Cincinnati and San Francisco's underground music scene with a stream of influential indie releases and grew to alt.rock fame with their excellent 2001 album "Take Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday" before disbanding. (Dig the video for "Wrecking Ball" from that album!)
-from Philadelphia, PA/San Francisco, CA
-Peggy Honeywell is the alter ego of renowned artist Claire Rojas. She is from Philly, began her career in 1999. Self taught, and produced. But recorded in SF by the great Monte Vallier at ruminator audio for the past 20 years. Songs of loss, love and hope.
Caitlin Gutenberger- Vocals/Guitar

-from Sacramento, CA
-Caitlin is a loyal Californian, and Californians are always willing to honor a dare. In 2005, her husband Johnny from the beloved band Far dared her to write songs to match the beauty of her voice. The songs she wrote were good enough to be recorded by her friend Robert Cheek at the Hangar studio in Sacramento, with Johnny and Rusty Miller (Jackpot, Jason Lytle, Kelly Stoltz) filling out what would become the band Two Sheds. That album, Strange Ammunition, was self released 2006. They followed with an EP, released by Filter Records in 2007, and spent the next few years touring.
In 2010, Caitlin took a hiatus from Two Sheds to join Release the Sunbird, the solo project of Rogue Wave frontman Zach Rogue, and had the opportunity to share stages with Peter, Bjorn & John, Death Cab for Cutie, and the Flaming Lips.
Two Sheds resumed when Caitlin and Johnny moved to Los Angeles in 2012. Caitlin was duty-bound to respond to another dare, this time a challenge from a friend to write twenty songs in one day. Caitlin took that dare three different days, in fact, and ended up with enough solid songs to record a new album with Johnny and drummer Josh Barnhart (Release the Sunbird, Port O’Brien, Sparrows Gate). The resulting album, Assembling, was engineered by Eli Thomson (Delta Spirit, Richard Swift, Everest) at New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, CA (Elliott Smith’s former studio). Tracking was performed mostly live over a 5-day session to capture the songs with the same immediacy with which they were written.
Two Sheds’ music takes the tender and direct pop mindset of someone like Liz Phair straight to the top floor. Caitlin’s voice may remind listeners of Kristen Hersh or Mazzy Star, sounding like she’s weeping in the sad songs and smiling in the happy songs. The band takes the California rock-soul of comrades like Mother Hips or 90s indie wizards Pavement, driving to the essence of a song in the shortest path possible. They are pushing themselves to dig down to the still-genuine heart of rock and roll, where true love still resides, away from the false promises of the searchlights. They will dare you to not be enamored.".
