Direct Divide,
The Chick P's,
Vanishing Affair
Alternative Cinematic Rock
Blues, Rock, Pop
   We are Direct Divide, an alternative rock band from Seattle Washington, now relocated to Los Angeles, CA. Our music incorporates cinematic elements including electric violin and piano, rock guitars, and big drums. We go from intense story-driven songs to hard hitting rock but always with tons of melody and emotion.
   Direct Divide writes music that makes you feel. The band incorporates rock, progressive, and alternative elements from bands like Muse, Florence and the Machine, A Perfect Circle, Silversun Pickups, and 30 Seconds to Mars. Their lineup of guitar, electric violin, keyboards, bass and drums alongside front person female vocals produces cinematic and moving songs with an alternative rock edge.
   --Not one to bandy about the word “epic” very often, Direct Divide‘s music definitely brings about that descriptive. After a couple of listens to their debut album titled Bridges, it becomes clear that this is not just a band playing at folly, creating songs with interesting time changes and melodies just because they can…It is in the use of serious subject matter along with well-executed hard rock songs shimmering with the backing of piano and violin that gives this band a major boost. Combining the hard and the soft, the serious and the playful, the pain and the beauty, is what totally works for them.” – Nathan Pike AllWhatsRock
   What makes a band demand your attention… ignite, excite and draw you in? Is it heart-breaking harmonies? Stand-out vocals? Emotion drenched lyrics? High -energy performances? Screaming guitar solos? Rocking originals and covers that force you to get up and dance? The Chick P’s bring all of this and more. A fun, spirited, rock and blues band made up of 4 chicks and a guy named Guy …the band’s guitar muse. They are pound for pound, a contagiously fun, feel-good band!
   Founded in Northern California in 2006, by song writing partners, Shannon Alley and Cindy Mooney, the band came together on a whim and quickly began shape shifting, with the addition of Karen McIntyre, percussionist turned bassist . What started as a folk cover band, featuring strong vocal talents and harmonious arrangements, gained energy and new direction, with the arrival of drummer Sara Maitri . Along came guitarist , Guy Sperry, talented & enthusiastic , opening the band to greater horizons. Rock & blues was born into the group, and with the vocals to pull it off, The Chick P’s have become infectious! Count on classic rock , danceable blues, AND A ROCKIN’ GOOD TIME with The Chick P’s

   Their music can be found on YouTube
   This boisterous, soulful band is one of a kind here in Sacramento. DuHain's Joplin-esque vocals are chilling and sensual as her band fills the room with sound. They're one hell of a "drinking band", too; these guys will have your glasses raised and your senses tingling.
   Think seductive, soulful tunes with an Americana flair sealed with enough bluesy bravado that it might even make the late Waters raise an eyebrow.
    And whether she’s singing about heartache, depression or illness, DuHain said she writes music as a way to connect with the audience and insists they leave knowing one simple thing.
   “[T]hey’re not alone,” DuHain said. “Any weirdness, any oddities, any pain, any singularity that they felt was damaging or solitary, they’re not alone. And they can convene with people who are like-minded.” - Steph Rodriguez, Sacramento News & Review
   -- "She’s a name you’ve likely heard, if not read about in alt papers like The Sacramento News & Review. If you’ve seen her in person, she is unmistakable. Imagine you walk into a show and see a tall, curvy woman with a guitar, belting out heartbreak and songs about rising from the ashes of the naive girl who got mixed up. One doesn’t forget this gal." - Karl Smarkel,
   -- "DuHain translates emotion through a knack for songwriting and a knockout voice that mixes whiskey, smoke and heartbreak while never letting go of the delicacy of love and desire." - Deb Belt, Sacramento Press
