About dereknico

New York, NY

Telling On Trixie is a New York City rock band created from a partnership of opposites- the introverted guitarist and the extroverted lead singer who bring out the best in one another to create something bigger than themselves. On their self-titled, debut album, you can hear the seamless result of two very different people joining together to create music with skill and passion – and it’s music that is already substantially impacting listeners. This band tells you it's OK to sass your ex, to want out of the bad relationship, to not do your homework, to make mistakes, to let go and have some f*ing fun. They tell you that everyone is taking everything too G.D. seriously and that there's hope in every single sucky situation. At their live shows they tell you to be present, identify, and get out of your head. They are telling you that even the loudest of guys sometimes feels like hiding; even the shyest of guys can play rock music on huge stages for rowdy fans

The debut album is in rotation on hundreds of stations nationwide, ranking as high as 2 on several stations’ College Music Journal Top 30 charts. Among the first to spin the album was Jonathan Clarke of Q104.3 in New York, KWSS FM in Phoenix and Mondo Blu in Spain. Several nationwide festival, club and college dates are scheduled to support their debut release, including CMJ Music Marathon, the Cincinnati Midpoint Music Festival and Red Gorilla during SXSW 2008. Within 6 months, Budweiser had named Telling on Trixie a Premiere Band, featuring them on Budweiser.com.

What is apparent from the first notes of “Halfway Back To Sane,” is that Telling On Trixie’s music has an inherent sense of drama and is playing for big stakes. After awarding them Honorable Mentions for "Angels Fall" and "Orion's Light," Billboard Magazine’s Songwriting Panel said of Telling on Trixie, “Interesting themes and catchy grooves…the talent is obvious.”
