  • Bio: 
    Fairy Bones is a rock band based out of Phoenix, Arizona. Formed in January 2013, the four piece consists of Chelsey Louise, Robert Ciuca, Ben Foos, and Matthew Foos.
    They released their self-titled debut EP on 80/20 Records in October 2013 to rave reviews. The Phoenix New Times called it’s lead single, “Like Like,” one of “the best things we saw, ate, and heard in 2013,” and Echo Magazine said that “‘Like Like’ should be on everybody’s shortlist for best single of the year.”
    They successfully crowdfunded their debut album, Dramabot, and recorded with Bob Hoag (The Ataris, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, The Format) at Flying Blanket Studios. Phoenix New Times named the lead single “Waiting,” one of the “10 Best Things I Heard in Phoenix in 2014,” and Chelsey one of the “The 10 Best Frontmen and Frontwomen in Phoenix Right Now.”
    The band has toured the west coast extensively, opening for Mother Mother, as well as PYYRAMIDS, The Love Me Nots, The Burning of Rome, and Hell or Highwater. They have regular radio play and have made appearances on radio stations such as KUKQ Phoenix, KWSS 93.9FM and 106.7FM, KBRP 96.1FM, and NPR KJZZ 91.5FM.
