After a successful catfishing on a musician networking website, Sarah McTaggart began collaborating with producer and bassist Mike Panek worldwide and over the internet, writing the beginnings of what would eventually become Transviolet. She moved from the Cayman Islands to Toronto, landing finally 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 San Fernando Valley purgatory (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.
Now in 2019, with multiple support 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 if 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, and self-released, the band is taking the reins and shows no signs of slowing down.
