Based out of Oakland, California, BloodWire began in 2001 when Shawn Brice, formally of the acclaimed goth/industrial outfit, BATTERY, wrote an instrumental piece for I-Li Chang as a gift. I-Li was so moved by his music that she immediately wrote lyrics and melody for the song. She sang this newly formed song to Shawn as a gift back to him. Soon, this shy girl developed a taste for creating music inspired by this talented musician. The transformation began and BloodWire emerged. Their songs are deeply personal and yet accessible, ranging from dreamy to raucous - sometimes in the same song! They are equally comfortable creating epic grooves or succinct pop songs, always with an emotional core. The amalgamation of I-Li's rich and sultry voice with Shawn's technical acumen creates a musical experience that is heart-pounding and electric, indeed where heart and circuit are intertwined.
