About The Band:
Like Violet is based around sisters Caitlin and Carly Kalafus formerly of the teen pop band Kicking Daisies. In KD the girls toured the country playing Bamboozle, Warped, Six Flags, HardRock Café, The Troubadour in Hollywood and more. They also appeared on National TV shows and in nationally aired TV commercials. The song “Breathing” (written by Caitlin) made it to #34 on the Billboard charts and their CD “Kicking Daisies”, which featured songs composed mainly by Caitlin and Carly sold at Walmart stores across the country.
Now with Like Violet, the girls are ready to break out in a new and much more mature way. “Touring with bands like The Ready Set, The Downtown Fiction and The Summer Set made Carly and I realize that it was time to grow up and play the music in our hearts”, says Caitlin. Carly adds, “It’s not that we didn’t love being in KD but there comes a time when the music changes.”
So with that, Caitlin and Carly decided to pursue a new sound and image. Some have called it “Fire and Ice” comparing Carly’s fiery red hair and captivating stage presence to Caitlin’s cool demeanor and impressive musicianship. Add in the new addition of bassist James Thompson and guitarist Shaepes (pronounced “Shapes”) and you have something new and exciting in Like Violet.
