Tiny Masters of Today
When we saw the band Tiny Masters of Today featured on the College Music Journal (CMJ) web site, we were intrigued.
The brother sister indie rock duo haven't reached puberty yet and they've already graced the pages of Spin and Rolling Stone. And what's even more surprising than their age, Ivan, 13, Ada, 11, is the fact that their music is not half bad. We especially like the "Hey Mr. DJ CSS Remix."
And while this group may need time to musically grow and mature, we think it's pretty cool that they're rockin' out so early in life.
Just so you Know: 13-year-old Ivan plays the guitar and bass, while 11-year-old Ada mans the keyboards. Both sing vocals. Their debut album Bang Bang Boom Cake (2007) boasts some impressive collaborations. Kimya Dawson (Moldy Peaches), Fred Schneider (B-52s), Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), Karen O and Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) all lend their unique talents to the 13 track album.
Fun Fact: Parents Nancy and David keep their kids' surname private and screen their MySpace page to protect their budding punks from weirdos. They've also turned down requests to base a reality show on Tiny Masters of Today's rock'n'roll exploits.
