We welcomed local band Calyco to the studio last weekend – a brand new 5 piece girl band on to the show.
The band consists of Cat, Carole, Tyger, Roni, and Chloe and we managed to persuade them to take time out of their busy schedules to pop into the Phoenix FM studio to chat about their journey into the world of pop music.
Cat’s sister Libby is no stranger to us – she’s a former Phoenix FM presenter, having been a regular on Sunday mornings and afternoons over the past few years, and also appearing on air with us as a singer regularly since we launched full time in 2007!
Calyco write and perform a mixture of their own songs and favourite cover versions, and are currently planning a tour for next year along with the release of their debut album.
You can hear the interview again on our website at phoenixfm.com and find out more about Calyco by following them on Facebook or Instagram @Calycomusic.
