It's the bipolar dynamic of Jetsetter that produces tracks so catchy that they stick in your head and beckon for repeat listens. Lead singer and lyricist Renée Ciarra finds influence in divas and flamboyant rockers, whereas musician Tyler Finck gets inspired by trip-hop hooks and cinematic instrumentals. This combination spawns a sound with the infectious melodies, pop energy, and candid, uncompromising lyrics. Renée grew up in Connecticut, daughter of rock bassist Dennis Dunaway (original member of Alice Cooper) and rock costume designer Cindy Dunaway (Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, The Who). During her teenage years, Renée performed background vocals with her father's bands at venues such as The Whisky A Go-Go in LA. As a 6-year-old in Maine, Tyler took up piano. After that, he added bass and guitar to his repertoire. His fluency in a multitude of instruments, mixed with his refreshing composition style, contributed to touring with a band in high school, and prolifically composing film scores in college. The band was formed in 2004 when Renée heard Tyler's movie scores while they were both film students at Ithaca College. She tracked him down and they soon wrote their first song together upon recognizing their mutual urgent passion for songwriting and their diverse, but complimentary musical tastes. Their debut album, VasoVerga, was recorded at Tyler's studio in Ohio and was released on March 9, 2007.
