“An omnivorous mutant of a band.” - Isthmus, Daily Page

“ …this band is deeply odd in its bones,” - Tone Madison

“Fans of Modern Jazz, Contemporary Classical Music, Rock & Hip-Hop will become captivated by the amazing sound of Lovely Socialite.” - High Noon Saloon

LOVELY SOCIALITE (Madison, Milwaukee, Detroit) (formerly Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps) is a Madison-based six-piece that combines the aesthetics of modern jazz with contemporary classical, driving rock, and hip hop. Lauded for their bold and intricate compositions, the group often draws comparisons to Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. The band’s original music combines strict notation with moments of improvisation and maintains a healthy balance of dark and heavy rock grooves with quirky jazz obscurities.

While Lovely Socialite’s unusual mix of strings, traditional Chinese instruments, cello, brass, and a jazz rhythm section suggest that the group might be a contemporary music ensemble, it is their use of stomp boxes and electronics that makes the group a suitable fit for any rock, hip-hop, or jazz bill. In fact, Lovely Socialite has shared the stage with such artists as Dessa, of Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree, as well as performing live on the UW Madison Terrace with Brian Ritchie of the Violent Femmes.

On Saturday, July 15th, Lovely Socialite celebrates their 3rd release “DoubleShark” at Art In (Madison, WI). After two full length studio albums, “Registers Her Delight” (2012) & “Toxic Consonance” (2015), Lovely Socialite pared down to explore a heavier rock leaning ep. Scott Gordon of Tone Madison recently sat down with members of the band at WORTfm to discuss the new ep: Tone Madison Podcast: Lovely Socialite get leaner and louder. www.tonemadison.com/articles/podcast-lovely-socialite-get-leaner-and-louder
