ANNEKA HAWN hails from Scotland where she was widely acclaimed as a child glockenspiel prodigy. This spawned her lifelong hatred of labels - except record labels. CLAY MONROE, the musical ying to her yang has been labelled many things. Formed by several summers spent at Florida Boy Band Camps, Clay battled the 98 degrees heat and emerged very musically 'n' sync with himself. He went on to become the only 100% caucasian member of latin boy band sensation, DULCE CON LECHE.
At a 1998 musical retreat in Big Sur, fate intervened to throw together two of music's most misunderstood voices: love burgeoned among the redwoods and soon came both musical and marital matrimony. As "man" and wife, Clay and Anneka formed KILL THE PUPPY. Their Soho Records debut release, ("Me Inside You") was hailed by Spin Magazine as "masterful and masturbatory". By the summer of 1999, KILL THE PUPPY had stormed into the Billboard charts at #98, with their hit single, "Ghost of You".
Like all searingly bright flames, KILL THE PUPPY burned out fast. "For better or worse" turned out to be the latter and their brief marriage ended after two hazy weeks following a spat at TGI Fridays in Glendale: the day the music died.
Rehab. Despair. The cycle of life continued, but barely, until one Mr. Kevin Keith Baker (Modesto-based multi-media artist and diehard KTP fanatic) tracked down the musical duo and in 2007 orchestrated their reunion. The upcoming documentary feature film that resulted ("SUNNY & SHARE LOVE YOU": THE MOVIE) is described by the Hollywood Reporter as "magnificent and masturbatory". The film chronicles the rekindling of their musical and matrimonial hearths as the pair reforms as outspoken children's advocates/entertainers, SUNNY & SHARE LOVE YOU. Performing in elementary schools across the Southland, S & S LY tackled such taboo subjects as gun control, cancer and rainbows. But like their colleagues, The Dixie Chicks, Sunny & Share found that speaking out comes with a price: they were censored and permanently expelled by the School Board.
Months of legal battles and introspection led to their CD release, "SEX, LIES & PRESCHOOL", an album for the disenfranchised, the overmedicated, the unattractive. The album covers the gamut from school bullies ("Bully"), to rainbows ("The Rainbow Song"), to pet euthanasia ("Little Fishy"), to homemade explosive devices ("Knockin' on Evan's Door"). Parent Magazine describes the upcoming 18 song offering as "mystifying and masturbatory".
