Do Hollywood, What We Know
The Lemon Twigs are an American pop/rock band from Long Island, New York, United States, fronted by brothers Brian D’Addario and Michael D’Addario. Both brothers are vocalists, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, and are joined for most live performances by Megan Zeankowski on bass and Danny Ayala on keyboards and backing vocals. All members of The Lemon Twigs attended Hicksville High School in New York.
The Lemon Twigs was started by Brian and Michael D'Addario in Hicksville High School.
The Times characterized The Lemon Twigs as "a modern-day band combining the melodic, harmony-rich soft rock of Wings and Supertramp, the underground cool of Big Star and the Ramones, and the theatricality of Broadway musicals." The Guardian cited the "humbling beauty of their songs" and their "sumptuous harmonies."
The band was signed to British alternative music label 4AD in 2015. Their debut album, Do Hollywood, was released in October 2016 to widespread critical acclaim. A number of pop music figures have publicly expressed admiration for the Twigs: Elton John, The Zombies, Boy George, Laura Marling, Gilbert O'Sullivan, and Gary Brooker of Procol Harum.
The Lemon Twigs served as opening act for fellow New York City/Long Island-based alt-rockers Sunflower Bean on their East Coast tour in late 2016 and performed on television programs like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CBS This Morning "Saturday Sessions" and Conan along the way. In early 2017 it was announced that the band would play on day one of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California on April 14, 2017.
The Lemon Twigs released the Do Hollywood tracks "These Words" and "As Long As We're Together" as a double-A-side single and made videos for both songs. The third single was album opener "I Wanna Prove to You" and features a video directed by Nick Roney.Brian D'Addario - vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, trumpet, violin
