On the heels of their 2013 debut full-length album Start Sinning, Philly rock duo John & Brittany (John Faye and Brittany Rotondo) have seen the album’s title track catapult into heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s Little Steven’s Underground Garage. The music video for the duo’s follow-up single, “Paper Planes,” aired on more than 100 video outlets in the U.S. and Canada, making it all the way to “The Freshmen” on MTV-U and to MTV.com. In addition to their full touring and recording schedule, John & Brittany can also be found hosting a weekly open mic in Philadelphia and volunteering for Musicians On Call, a nonprofit which brings the positive power of live music to people in hospitals in cities all across the U.S. The pair’s boy/girl dynamic captures the sweetness and tension of predecessors like Buckingham/Nicks, combined with a dose of the punk ferocity of The Kills.
