Life Is Beautiful - October 26 & 27 - Las Vegas

Life Is Beautiful – October 26 & 27 – Las Vegas

We’re singing you our secrets.


Philthymag.com recently got a chance to chat with Christina about this whirlwind that has been the first four years of Family of the Year.

Izzy Cihak: So you’ve gained quite a bit of critical acclaim. I’m actually sitting in front of 16 pages (front and back) of press materials that Nettwerk sent me. Have there been any critical characterizations of your sound that you found to be especially on point… or just especially amusing?

Christina Schroeter: Wow, sixteen pages! Well, Steven Tyler did call us The Mamas and The Papas on acid, to which everyone asks, “Weren’t they already on acid?” And since I can’t drop a cool piece of info like that without explaining it, a friend of ours used to work with Tyler and was driving him home one night. She happened to have our CD in her car and that’s how he heard us.

IC: And, for that matter, what is it that you think is most important to know about Family of the Year?

CS: We’re honest songwriters. We’re singing you our secrets.

IC: What do you consider to be the band’s most significant influences and inspirations?

CS: Heartbreak and hanging out.
