THICK is made up of Nikki Sisti on guitar/vocals, Kate Black on the bass/vocals, and Shari Page on the drums and vocals.
Born from the DIY/all-ages scene in New York, THICK makes music with the raw defiance of punk and addictive melodies of pop, punchy and catchy and wildly tongue-in-cheek. With their live show typically spawning a mosh pit described by Stereogum as "more like an aggressive hug,".
All originally from New York State, the three members of THICK each followed their own distinct path into music: Page began playing drums in third grade and later saved up her babysitting money to buy a used Rockwood drum kit; Sisti got a guitar from her grandmother in fourth grade, then taught herself to play after sitting through one boring lesson; and Black started out on flute and piccolo as a kid, played keyboards in a band after moving to Brooklyn, and eventually switched to bass (i.e., "the little unsung hero in all of the best songs").
Recently featured in a New York Times round-up of "25 bands that prove women are making the best rock music today," THICK points out that connecting with other non-cishet-male musicians has been one of the most rewarding aspects of starting out in the DIY scene.
