Alicia Bognanno has been cutting her teeth on the soundboards of indie clubs and studios in Nashville for the past couple of years. Now, she’s putting her technical skills to use in the four-piece rock band Bully, in which she acts as the guitarist, singer, producer, and engineer.
Bully has already opened for the likes of Best Coast, Those Darlins, Superchunk, Drowners, Kevin Drew, and will be playing some show in January opening for Strand of Oaks.
Bognanno’s technical abilities are apparent in Bully’s music, but it’s the personal and emotional depth of the songs that make them so magnetic.
Bully is currently in the studio working on a full-length release for release next year.
“Bully thrashes around with the best of them, firing off pop-punk songs that burst with gravelly distortion and lacerating riffs.” – NPR
“Guitarist/vocalist Alicia Bognanno is a compelling presence, exuberant and shit-kicking in the same breath.” – NY Magazine
“Drawing heavily from both pop-punk and 90s alternative/grunge, they manage to never lean too heavily towards either, occupying a well-balanced space that is entirely their own. Increasingly difficult to not fall victim to “it’s nothing new” scrutiny, Bully come out triumphant and they come out LOUD.” – Noisey
