After a successful catfishing on a musician networking website, Sarah McTaggart began to collaborate with producer and bassist Mike Panek across the world, and over the internet writing the beginnings of what would eventually become Transviolet.
She made the move from the Cayman Islands, to Toronto, landing eventually in San Diego where they met for the first time and sparks flew, or at the very least no one was serial killed. Jon Garcia was brought in on drums, and later Judah McCarthy on guitar and keys after moving to LA and signing their first publishing deal.
For two years the band locked themselves in studios across the purgatory that is the San Fernando Valley (which would later be the title of their 2018 release), writing song after song, until piquing the interest of LA Reid and their first major label partner EPIC records.
From the very beginning, Transviolet has made a point to approach music differently. Like when they released their first single Girls Your Age, the band sent out 2,000 plain manilla envelopes to kids across the country containing a cassette tape that only said “play me”, not realizing that was pretty near to the exact plot of the horror movie SAW. Blogs and press outlets took notice, but no one cared nearly as much as the mothers across the country when they took to facebook to demand answers, and threaten the band with legal action. It was hilarious.
24 hours later and Katy Perry Tweeted out the song, a week later Harry Styles. A flood of attention came to the band and they were thrown into the deep end that is the music industry. Writing with collaborators DreamLab (Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj…) Sam Hollander ( Panic At the disco, Fitz and the tantrums) Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Tyler the Creator) and Nate Motte of 3OH!3, among many others, Transviolet put out two more EPs, seeing critical acclaim from countless press outlets.
Now in 2019 with multiple support (Twenty one pilots, LANY, Dua Lipa, Joywave) and headling tours (US, UK) under their collective belt, and tens of millions of streams - Transviolet is gearing up to release their first Independent full album. Feeling as they’re writing the best material of their career thus far, the band couldn’t be more ready to show the world, just who it is, they are.
Self written, self mixed, self released, the band is taking the reins and show no signs of slowing down.
