Building a following from Los Angeles to Chicago, from New Orleans to London and beyond FireBug have proven their dedication in the music business and will continue to grow their presence. Described as a Chrissie Hynde-meets-Grace Slick 70's vibe, with her own unique twist and flavor, Lead vocalist Juliette Tworsey says "cutting our musical teeth in and around local hot spots in Chicago, Los Angeles and New Orleans, has allowed us to connect on a deeper level not only with our music and fans but also with ourselves." Guitarist Jules Shapiro adds, "It was the laissez-faire attitude that attracted us to New Orleans. The depth and musical soul of this eclectic city have inspired our sound."
FireBug have performed at many festivals in New Orleans that include; Satchmo Festival, French Quarter Festival, NOLA Fringe Festival and many others.Venues in New Orleans include the famed One Eyed Jacks, Gasa Gasa, House Of Blues and Howlin' Wolf. In Los Angeles, FireBug has hosted the Firelight Music Festival in Silverlake multiple times and have showcased their best material at The Viper Room in West Hollywood and The Echo in Echo Park.

A blend of Alt-country mixed with a smattering of soul and rock that's not with out their own brand of wry humor.
