Alicia Bognanno has been cutting her teeth on the soundboards of indie clubs and studios in Nashville for the past couple of years. Now, she's putting her technical skills to use in the four-piece rock band Bully, in which she acts as the guitarist, singer, producer, and engineer.
Bully has already opened for the likes of Best Coast, Those Darlins, and Superchunk, and are joining Drowners and Kevin Drew on tour this fall, along with playing CMJ.
Bognanno's technical abilities are apparent in Bully's music, but it's the personal and emotional depth of the songs that make them so magnetic.
"Drawing heavily from both pop-punk and 90s alternative/grunge, they manage to never lean too heavily towards either, occupying a well-balanced space that is entirely their own. Increasingly difficult to not fall victim to "it's nothing new" scrutiny, Bully come out triumphant and they come out LOUD." - Noisey
