Autodrone is an NYC-based band that formed in the latter 2000’s. They combine songwriting that draws upon the five members’ psychological damage, morbid interests, and broken hearts with influences drawn equally from 70’s Psych Rock, 80’s Post-Punk, and 90’s Shoegaze. From this miasma, they have forged a sound which is uniquely all their own.
SaraJeanne has been singing since she could talk. Her kindergarten teacher reported she was, “a good student, but she never stops singing.” In her hometown in California, she began studying classical voice at 14, studying with Hawaii Performing Arts Festival founder, Val Underwood, renowned Australian coloratura soprano, Jennifer McGregor, and acclaimed soprano, Shigemi Matsumoto in Los Angeles. At 22, Sara abruptly quit classical music finding the structure and rigidity creatively stifling. A bit later, while at Sarah Lawrence College, Sara decided to take an elective in the theater department in Musical Theater writing. This songwriting workshop experience re-awakened Sara’s passion for music. From there, she recorded songs with the Americana band, Have Gun Will Travel, and also formed her own short-lived band, Barbara. Sara met Connie Y in 2016, the two hit it off, and soon, Sara, Connie, and Matt Wells started to collaborate. What will the future bring? Sara is learning to DJ, practicing guitar, and still always singing and writing. She looks forward to taking on as many future new projects as time will allow. Also, she’s a gemini, but don’t hold that against her.
