Coyotes of Topanga Interview

alt-icon

The band idea started when two brothers, Levko & Lys performed with drums and guitar at their after school RockStar class while at Marquez Elementary. Back in Topanga, siblings Paria and Wiley performed at their school’s RockStar program.  When both boys went back to Topanga Elementary, all 4 friends got together at another Rock Star class and included Kalyna, who sang their original song Coyotes of Topanga at the Avalon, in January 2015. All the band friends have lived or gone to school in Topanga, and have grown up watching bold coyotes frolic all over the canyon.

How did you all connect to form the band "The Swaggers"?
Lucy: One day I was just listening to the radio, because I write songs, and I said, I just want to form a band, I want to become famous eventually with a band. Then my mom and I walked around soccer practice, just to find out to see if any players we knew, played an instrument. We found Niki the drummer and then we found Bella!

Interview – Breaking27

Max: Drums
Charlotte: Bass
Ryan: Guitar
Annika: Lead Singer

How did you get the name BREAKING 27? Some of our favorite musicians like Curt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse have sadly died at the age of 27 due to making bad choices. They are all part of something now called the “27 club” We do not want to be in the club, we want to ‘break the curse” of the 27 club. So we decided on Breaking 27
